House January 6 committee seeks more John Eastman emails
Letter said that recent back and forth communication with Eastman’s attorneys about the remaining emails that appeared to go nowhere.
“In light of this exchange over the past month or so, it seems clear that further consultation with Plaintiff’s counsel will not result in the Select Committee receiving the material that it seeks in a timely manner,” the filing states. “Accordingly, the Select Committee now moves for this Court to review and rule on Plaintiff’s claims of privilege” for the remaining documents.
Earlier this year, the committee subpoenaed Chapman University, where Eastman was employed during the bid to overturn the election results, for emails he sent on his university email account. Eastman challenged the subpoena in court in the Central District of California.
Carter has since helped the committee obtain scores of Eastman’s emails.
