The name he mentions most often in the memo is that of  Mike Pence such s as: “Pence then gavels President Trump as re-elected” & regarding disrupting the count:“The main thing here is that Pence should do this without asking for permission.”  At Trump’s Jan. 6th rally he said that what “we are demanding of Vice-President Pence” is that he intervene in the electoral count. Trump, speaking shortly afterward, cited Eastman’s authority: “If Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election.” Soon, the assault on the Capitol began &, once it became clear that Pence was not going to do what Trump and his allies demanded, a group of insurrectionists chanted “Hang Mike Pence.”
