Bumbling Trump Coup Lawyer John Eastman Finds Yet Another Bar Complaint In His Stocking - 2021-12-17
Another day, another bar complaint for attorney John Eastman, author of the "Coups 4 Dummies" memos advising Trumpland on multiple paths to steal the electoral college and keep their guy sitting pretty in the Oval Office for another four years.
Eastman, whose sudden separation from Chapman University Law School followed close on the heels of his participation in the January 6 rally, was already facing one complaint in his home state of California. And now he's got another reminder of his standing within the profession, as some 1,300 attorneys have already signed their names to a complaint filed by Lawyers Defending American Democracy (LDAD) against Eastman with the State Bar of California. (Hat tip to Law.com, which was first to flag the complaint.)
LDAD filed a similar complaint against former Justice Department lawyer Jeffrey Clark, who maneuvered to get himself made Attorney General so he could announce investigations into non-existent vote fraud, allowing swing state legislators to throw their electoral votes to Trump. But as more facts come out about about the events leading up to the January 6 riot, LDAD appears to have changed its strategy. They're now alleging what amounts to a conspiracy between Eastman, Clark, and Giuliani to overturn the election.
