Well — I was booked yesterday in Fulton County, Georgia, for my work representing President Trump in the 2020 election challenges. Quite a travesty.
The media coverage has been extremely skewed, as is typical (but for Epoch Times and a few others that don’t follow the herd’s narrative — see, for example, this). The most dishonest is the line that “Eastman had no comment.” In truth, I gave a full statement to the hoards of media who were assembled. It is available here. I hope you will read it.
The standard line has now become that I was the lawyer who devised the strategy to keep Trump in power. That, too, is a massive distortion. As I noted in my statement, we sought to have investigated what Vice President Mike Pence described as “serious allegations of voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law.” Doing that is speech and petitioning the government for redress of grievances fully protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. But the narrative being foisted on us by the left and by the anti-Trump right doesn’t care about constitutional rights, free and fair elections, presumption of innocence, or any of those other basic components of our system of government. That mentality needs to be confronted head on, and with your help, I’m doing all that I can. My attorney did a wonderful job explaining all this on CNN last night, video here. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. And if you can, contribute (or contribute again!) to the legal defense fund and encourage your friends to do the same. Estimates from the various lawyers with whom I have spoken over the past week indicate this may cost $1 Million or more.
