Former Watergate attorney Jill Wine-Banks explained to MSNBC’s Ari Melber that Republicans who signed onto a false document claiming to be an elector when they weren’t and then submitted votes to the government is a crime.
While discussing the fake electors scheme on Monday, Melber played a clip of former President Donald Trump’s campaign adviser, Boris Epshteyn, who effectively admitted to being part of the 2020 elector conspiracy on live television.
“Yes, I was part of the process to make sure there were alternate electors for when, as we hoped, the challenges to the seated electors would be heard and be successful,” he confessed.
Reacting to this, Wine-Banks said she certainly would love to be the lawyer on the other side of his case, implying that it would be an easy win. Responding to Epshteyn, she said that he didn’t do it legally because you can’t create a fake slate of electors. It’s fraud, she explained, to interfere with the election, conspiracy to interfere with an official congressional proceeding, and conspiracy to commit forgery within the federal laws and state laws.
“You noted that two of the states caveated their forgeries by saying ‘this is only good in the event that the legitimate slate of Democratic electors fails,'” she recalled. “Then we become the electors. But the other states all said we are the duly elected electors. That is clearly forgery. And there is a forgery statute not for forging money, which is normally how you think of forgery, but for other government-related documents.”
