The committee also requested documents and communication related to Eastman’s legal advice and analysis on How Trump could overturn the election results and remain in office. 

Eastman, who is a member of the Federalist Society and a law professor, outlined scenarios on overturning the 2020 results in two memos. His analysis was at the center of a meeting with Trump and Pence in the Oval Office on Jan. 4, according to the Post. 

Eastman told the Post last week that he hadn’t been contacted by the committee yet, but a source close to the committee disputed that claim.
