John Eastman used CU email account to advise Pennsylvania legislator on challenging that state’s 2020 election results

The Denver Post: John Eastman, a lawyer who represented Donald Trump following the president’s 2020 election loss, used his University of Colorado email account while serving as a visiting professor in Boulder to advise a Pennsylvania lawmaker on how to challenge that state’s electors, according to records submitted to Congress.

The selection of messages to and from Eastman’s CU Boulder email account was obtained by The Denver Post after a Democratic political consultant sent them on behalf of the Colorado Ethics Institute to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Eastman, CU Boulder’s visiting professor of conservative thought and policy during the 2020-2021 academic year, has come under increasing scrutiny for his role in advising Trump on how to stay in power after losing the 2020 election. A federal judge in California ruled in March that Trump and Eastman likely committed crimes in their efforts to overturn the election.
