Ex-Trump Election Lawyer John Eastman Has Been Disbarred

John Eastman, the former Donald Trump election lawyer behind the so-called “fake electors” scheme, was officially disbarred by the state of California on Tuesday.

“Eastman’s wrongdoing was committed directly in the course and scope of his representation of President Trump and the Trump Campaign,” State Bar Court Judge Yvette D. Roland ruled. “Eastman’s actions transgressed those ethical limits by advocating, participating in and pursuing a strategy to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election that lacked evidentiary or legal support.”

ABC News reported that “Investigators for the California bar said Eastman made ‘demonstrably false and misleading statements’ with the memos he drafted that became the framework for the ‘legal strategies’ aimed at having then-Vice President Mike Pence interfere with the certification of the 2020 election.” Eastman said through a spokesman that he stands by his work to overturn the 2020 election.

He can appeal to the appellate division of the State Bar Court, and then to the Supreme Court of California.

Better than “dis-robed”.

One of the most delusional Trump-tards, and that’s saying something.

He makes The Kraken look downright sane.

Now he can try to pass the bar in a real state like Texas or Missouri, instead of libtard shithouse California.

He should not be prosecuted for treason and whatever penalties that go with it.
