For a supposed billionaire, Trump manages to have the worst lawyers working on his behalf. This conservative goofball made news before his coup memo by claiming Oakland-born Kamala Harris was not a U.S. citizen by birth therefore she could not be vice-president. Her parents were foreigners---get it? --CA

(HuffPost by way of Yahoo)The right-wing attorney who authored "coup memos" for Donald Trump and supporters on how to scuttle the presidential election lost a court battle Friday to hold back his documents from the House select committee investigating last year’s Jan. 6 insurrection.

Lawyer John Eastman claimed the situation had turned him into a “pseudo-defense attorney for the former president” — so the emails are thereby protected by attorney-client privilege.

Not "pseudo"! That word means not genuine; spurious or sham. Eastman probably meant "de facto" meaning in fact, or in effect. Come to think of it maybe "pseudo" is the correct word.-CA

Eastman warned in his civil suit that granting the committee access to his emails involving the former president could amount to a historic legal finding that Trump may have committed a crime while he was a sitting president.

“Were this Court to sustain the defendants’ claims, it may be the first formal finding of Presidential criminality by a federal court in United States history,” Eastman wrote in his suit seeking to hold up access to his records.

Way to implicate your "pseudo" client, Eastman! Eastman apparently is referring to the House Committee as the "defendants" but I am not sure why. -CA
