Kenneth Chesebro Wiki – Kenneth Chesebro Bio
Kenneth Chesebro is an appellant attorney from Austin, Texas, and one of six persons accused of being “co-conspirators” in the newest Trump indictment.
According to his LinkedIn profile, he has worked as a litigation attorney, particularly at the appellate level and with “plaintiffs’ attorneys on cases against corporate defendants.”
In the indictment charging Trump with crimes for his acts related to the 2020 presidential election, five of the six persons named as “co-conspirators” are lawyers. The House January 6 Committee allegedly charged Chesebro with “being the architect of the fake elector plot” in seven states, according to the Independent. He is charged with writing memoranda outlining the false elector plot, according to the indictment.
Kenneth Chesebro Age
Mr. Chesebro is 62 years old.
Co-conspirator 5 is described in the indictment as “an attorney who assisted in planning and trying to carry out a plan to present false slates of presidential voters so as to prevent the approval proceeding.” In earlier reports, lawyer Kenneth Chesebro has been identified as this person.
In the indictment, Trump and “co-conspirators” like Kenneth Chesebro are charged with coming up with a new scheme “to marshal individuals who would have served as the Defendant’s electors had he been successful in winning the popular vote in the seven targeted states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. He then influenced those voters to fabricate and transmit phony certifications of their voting eligibility to the Vice President and Congress.
The conspiracy “capitalized on suggestions contained in memos prepared by Co-Conspirator 5, a lawyer who assisted the Defendant’s Campaigns with legal actions relating to a recounting in Wisconsin,” according to the lawsuit.
According to the indictment, “the memos evolved over time from a legal approach to preserve defendant’s interests to a fraudulent plan to sabotage the operation of the US government by preventing Biden electors’ votes from being counted and verified.”
The “Wisconsin Memo” recommended that Trump’s electors in Wisconsin meet and cast ballots on December 14 – the day the ECA required appointed electors to vote – to preserve the alternative of the Defendant’s Wisconsin elector slate if the Defendant ultimately won the state. This was done in light of the ongoing recount in Wisconsin.
