Trump Lawyer John Eastman Subject Of Bar Complaint Over Advice On Pence’s Role In Election

A bipartisan group of former officials and legal heavyweights, including two former federal judges, asked the California bar association Monday to investigate the conduct of John Eastman, the adviser to then-President Donald Trump who mapped out a legal strategy to overturn the 2020 election results.

The complaint, also signed by two former justices of the California Supreme Court, cites Eastman’s work in election challenges rejected by the Supreme Court and his speech at a Jan. 6 rally in Washington before a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol. But the 24-page memo centers on Eastman’s alleged role in pressing Vice President Mike Pence not to count electoral votes on Jan. 6 and certify President Biden as the winner.

    Of course, go after the opposition to keep them quiet. This is exactly what totalitarian regimes do.

  2. In my view, Trump has totally disqualified himself for consideration for the presidency in the future, by his post-election actions. I don’t have much doubt that he was trying to pull off a kind of a coup. He didn’t care whether he election was fair or not. It’s always been solely about him, not preserving the American system. I supported some of his policies, but mentally he is a very disturbed and dangerous man.
