Apr 16, 2024 – The Propaganda press…

I have taken to calling the mainstream media the “propaganda press” because their primary job seems to be to advance a leftwing narrative on virtually every topic in the news. This is especially true on all things Trump.

Frenzied headlines across the country have screamed that I have already been disbarred from the practice of law in California. Though I am facing a very difficult situation, the reports of the death of my legal career are greatly exaggerated.

The Cal Bar court only has the power to recommend disbarment and my legal team is fighting as hard as humanely possible to prevent that from happening.

My legal defense fund has been exhausted due to defending against the extraordinary lawfare attack that is being waged against me. I urgently need your help today so that we have the resources needed to fight the outrageous ruling of the California Bar judge, and to defend my good name in the criminal case that is back on track in Georgia. Please give generously to my legal defense fund.

The ultimate decision whether to accept the California Bar Court’s disbarment recommendation lies with the California Supreme Court. In the meantime, though, the recommendation triggered an automatic placement on “involuntary inactive enrollment” status.

My team has already filed a motion to stay, or put on hold, pending appeal the “involuntary inactive enrollment” placement.  This is critically important because without a stay in place I will not be able to practice law and earn an income as a lawyer in California. Absent a stay, the judge’s ruling means I will be severely hampered in raising the funds necessary to defend myself.

But the “involuntary inactive” placement damages more than just me – it damages all of my clients who are in need of my services as a constitutional expert and zealous advocate.

That is a critical objective of the lawfare abuse that I am facing.

Not only does the left want to punish me for representing President Trump, they want to send a signal to other lawyers that taking on the establishment could be ruinous. They also want to make it extremely difficult for individuals and groups who seek to challenge governmental power and the deep state to find a highly-skilled attorney willing to represent them.

In addition to seeking to stay the disbarment recommendation, we also are preparing a vigorous appeal of the entire State Bar process, which was a travesty of justice on so many levels.

While we do that, the criminal RICO case is proceeding in Fulton County, Georgia under the ethically challenged DA, Fani Willis. And Jack Smith’s pending case against former President Trump in Washington DC is still proceeding, into which I may be dragged. Smith has already named me an “unindicted co-conspirator.”

All of this points to the extreme difficulty that my family and I are facing. We’ve exhausted the nearly $3/4 million that has been donated to my legal defense fund by generous supporters like you. And now we are looking at incurring an estimated $2 million in additional legal bills to deal with the appeal in California, the trial in Georgia and the numerous other lawfare attacks against me.

I am relying on people of good will like you to step forward at this critical time. Your donation to my legal defense fund of $50$100$250$500$1,000 or $1,500 or more is urgently needed and would be a huge blessing to my family and I.

If at all possible, I ask you to consider becoming a monthly donor to my legal defense fund of any amount of your choosing. This would be a huge help, especially since the legal battles are expected to continue for much, if not all, of 2024.

Please help as best you can so that I can continue to fight the lawfare assault that is being waged against me, and continue to serve as a constitutional expert battling governmental overreach, the deep state and those who would undermine democracy by compromising our elections.

Thank you for your consideration. Please keep me and my family in your prayers.
