STORY: “The day after, Eastman, I don’t remember why he called me,” Herschmann is heard saying in the video. “And he started to ask me about something dealing with Georgia, preserving something, potentially for appeal.”
“And I said to him, ‘are you out of your effing mind?’ I said ‘I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth from now on: orderly transition... I don’t want to hear any other effing words coming out of your mouth no matter what, other than orderly transition,” he said.
Herschmann then recounts telling Eastman: “’Now I'm going to give you the best free legal advice you’re ever getting in your life: get a great effing criminal defense lawyer, you’re going to need it.’ And then I hung up on him.”
The hearing also saw video from a deposition of Eastman, where he repeatedly pleads the fifth.
