Trump’s strategy to overturn the 2020 election didn’t work. Next time it might…

“On the night before the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Washington Post reporter Robert Costa walked through the streets of D.C., surrounded by a throng of Trump supporters. He says he remembers a particular energy in the crowd that night.

“They were clashing with police officers. They were fighting with each other. There was a euphoria,” Costa says. “The mob … it was loud.”

Costa’s new book Peril, which he co-wrote with journalist Bob Woodward, centers on President Trump’s final days in office — specifically the events leading up to and following the Capitol siege.

As the crowd agitated outside, Costa says, inside a “war room” at the nearby Willard hotel, Trump lawyers and allies, including Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon and Jason Miller, were laying out a strategy to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

According to Costa, Trump attorney John Eastman drafted a memo suggesting that an alternate slate of electors be used as a tactic to stop the certification of the election results.

“They were trying to get [Vice President] Pence and others to move the election to the House of Representatives to block Biden from taking office,” Costa explains.

Costa says that Pence declined to go along with the plan — mostly because there were no alternate slates of electors on hand. But, Costa adds, “Imagine if in January 2025, Republicans are much more organized and they have alternate slates of electors ready in many states. What happens then?”

Ten months later, hundreds of members of the mob who stormed the Capitol are facing prosecution for their actions. But it remains to be seen whether anyone from the Willard war room will be charged.

“The looming question for Merrick Garland, the attorney general, is: Is he going to go at the key players, who may not be directly tied to the violence or may not have their fingerprints on the steel bars that were used against the Capitol Police officers that day, but [who] were part of planning an effort to defraud the United States?” Costa says. “I’m not a lawyer, but I think raising the question is certainly understandable based on all of this reporting.”

“As the investigation into the shooting that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead continues, Baldwin’s involvement is shaping up to be a tragic accident where several safety protocols failed to prevent him from firing a gun with a live round in it during a rehearsal. Most notably is the latest revelation that Baldwin was reportedly told by the assistant director that the gun was “cold” after he retrieved it from the armorer. A “cold gun” means it has no round in it, blank or otherwise.
