McCarthy And Scalise Directly Implicated In The Plot To Overturn 2020 Election

The more we learn about the elaborate plan to make sure Donald Trump remained as president, the clearer it becomes that numerous individuals at various levels of the federal government were involved in an attempt to overturn the will of the voters and carry out a coup.

According to attorney Sidney Powell, both House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) were part of the plot, which also involved a court challenge that would be heard by one of the most conservative justices on the Supreme Court, Samuel Alito.

Powell was a guest on “The Stew Peters Show,” and she revealed that McCarthy and Scalise had been tasked with denying Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from filing an amicus brief in the case which would have argued that the election was valid and should be certified by Congress:

“There had been inside goings-on in Congress whereby I believe it was Steve Scalise and McCarthy kept her from being an actual party. She wanted to work her way into the case, but somehow that didn’t happen. She got notice when we made our filing. She wanted to file an amicus brief, and then everything broke loose, and she had to speed up reconvening Congress to get the vote going before Justice Alito might issue an injunction.”

Powell even explained why Alito would be the judge in the case, which would eventually have been heard by the full Supreme Court if those loyal to Trump had been successful:

“Justice Alito was our circuit justice for that. And we were suing the vice president to follow the 12th Amendment as opposed to the Electoral College Act.”

Granted, Powell is not exactly the most reliable of sources considering the lies she’s already told about her role in the conspiracy to deny Joe Biden the presidency. But her accusations can easily be confirmed by a close look at both McCarthy and Scalise’s phone and email records. Those have been subpoenaed by the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.

Records from the Trump administration will also soon be in the hands of the House committee because President Joe Biden has made it clear he will not cite executive privilege to keep them hidden. Those, combined with the records from members of Congress who coordinated with Trump and his associates, will provide concrete proof of who was involved in the conspiracy.

Powell’s remarks are also more evidence that can be used by the Justice Department to charge those involved with federal crimes, including election interference and sedition.

Every single person who tried to keep Trump in office is part of a criminal conspiracy. They need to be charged, prosecuted, and given long sentences if they’re found guilty. That’s how we protect our republic and send a message to anyone who might think of trying something like this in the future.
