John Eastman, the conservative lawyer known for his involvement in former President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 election results, is now facing the consequences of his actions.

Who is John Eastman?

John Eastman, who was a tenured law professor at Chapman University in California, was fired in January 2022 due to his role in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. In addition, he is currently facing disbarment proceedings in California.

The State Bar of California has filed disciplinary charges against Eastman, accusing him of making false statements about the 2020 election and engaging in conduct to obstruct the certification of the election results. A highly anticipated disbarment hearing is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, June 17, and will be live-streamed on the State Bar of California’s website.

The live-streaming of the hearing is expected to draw significant attention from legal experts, political observers, and the general public. This hearing carries immense importance for Eastman’s career and could also serve as a deterrent for other lawyers contemplating similar actions.

While Eastman denies the allegations against him and has expressed confidence in his eventual exoneration, the outcome of the hearing remains uncertain. If disbarred, he will be prohibited from practicing law in California and may face further disbarment proceedings in other states.

It is worth noting that Eastman’s legal troubles extend beyond the disbarment hearing. He is also under scrutiny in relation to the January 6th attack and may potentially face criminal charges for his involvement in the attempted election overthrow. The ongoing investigation led by Jack Smith has the potential to indict additional individuals connected to the attack, including Eastman.

Despite his current predicament, Eastman’s complaint about the live-streaming of his disbarment hearing appears misguided. Considering the severity of the accusations against him and the public interest in the proceedings, it is only fitting that the hearing be accessible to the American people.
