Unveiling the Truth: The Fulton County Election Subversion Case
In late October, Kenneth Chesebro pleaded guilty to one felony count related to the Fulton County election subversion case. As an attorney involved in former President Donald Trump‘s fake elector scheme, Chesebro has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and provide them with crucial documents. However, the extent of Chesebro’s cooperation remains uncertain.
Chesebro’s Role Revealed
Contrary to attorney Scott Grubman’s claims, Chesebro’s involvement in orchestrating the fake elector scheme is well-documented. Chesebro personally drafted the fraudulent electoral documents and sent them to individuals responsible for overseeing the scheme in multiple states. He also authored memos and emails explaining how the fake electors could be used to delay or deny Joe Biden’s victory during the congressional certification.
Leaked Proffers and New Revelations
Last week, the Washington Post reported on leaked excerpts of Chesebro’s proffer, as well as those of his co-defendants Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell, and Scott Hall. These leaked recordings have raised significant questions and garnered media attention, prompting a protective order from Judge Scott McAfee to prevent further public disclosure of sensitive evidence.
Chesebro’s Meeting with Trump
One intriguing detail revealed in Chesebro’s proffer is his meeting with then President Trump in the White House on December 16, 2020. This revelation raises more questions than answers. The meeting, attended by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino, and several attorneys, places Trump in direct contact with a key architect of the fake electors scheme.
Downplaying Chesebro’s Role
However, the account attributed to Chesebro in the Post’s summary of his proffer seems to downplay his role in the conspiracy. Chesebro’s scheme to obstruct the joint session of Congress using fake electors is not adequately addressed in the leaked information. This raises concerns about the full extent of Chesebro’s cooperation with Fulton County prosecutors.
The Arizona Connection
Chesebro’s description of the Oval Office meeting emphasized his briefing to Trump about the situation in Arizona. He claimed to have the most relevant information from his communication with attorney Jack Wilenchik. However, Wilenchik’s email, also quoted in the federal indictment, reveals that Chesebro wanted to submit “alternative” votes, which were not legally valid, to Congress for consideration.
Chesebro’s Testimony and Witnessing Violence
Chesebro’s full statement to prosecutors remains undisclosed, leaving many questions unanswered. The Post’s reporting on his testimony creates ambiguity about his claims regarding witnessing any violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The leaked proffers and Chesebro’s partial account raise numerous concerns and call for further examination of his involvement in the election subversion case.
