May 07, 2024 – Danger to the public

The biased judge who oversaw the California State Bar disbarment show trial against conservative constitutional scholar Dr. John Eastman has rejected his request to delay suspension of his law license while he appeals her disbarment recommendation.

The leftwing judge – appointed by the Democrat Speaker of the State Assembly and a donor to Democrat politicians – says he continues to pose “a danger to the public.”

What’s the danger in allowing Dr. Eastman to continue to practice law while he appeals her outrageous ruling against him?

The danger is that he will continue to represent conservative clients and pursue conservative causes on behalf of those who have been aggrieved by government power and overreach.

That, of course, is a major purpose of the lawfare assault that leftwing legal groups have waged against John Eastman.

The immediate impact of the judge’s latest ruling against him is that he will no longer be able to earn income as a lawyer in California, and perhaps elsewhere, and thus be able to contribute to his own defense. This giant of the conservative legal movement is now totally reliant on the support of friends, colleagues, fellow conservatives and people of good will to support his legal defense fund.

Dr. Eastman has incurred over $1 million in legal fees thus far defending against the lawfare assault being waged against him and is looking at $2+ million in additional legal expenses going forward.

I urgently ask you to consider making a generous emergency financial donation to Dr. Eastman’s defense fund now that the biased judge in California has denied him the ability to earn income representing clients who urgently need his help.

The lawfare radicals highly object to Dr. Eastman utilizing his expertise as one of the nation’s foremost constitutional experts in his representation of former President Donald Trump. It’s because he dared to work with President Trump to lawfully raise concerns about fraud and illegalities in the 2020 presidential election that he has been targeted for punishment and ruin.

They’ve sought to have him disbarred in California, DC and before the US Supreme Court. The feds illegally seized his cell phone (which they have kept for over two years now). He was hauled before the discredited January 6 Committee when Democrats controlled the House to be made an object of scorn and subjected to outrageous allegations. Joe Biden’s hand-picked special prosecutor Jack Smith (who was appointed illegally) has named him an unindicted co-conspirator in his federal prosecution of President Trump for supposed election interference. And he’s been indicted by radical leftwing Democrat prosecutors in both Georgia and Arizona where, if they succeed, he could be thrown into prison for decades.

All of this because he lawfully represented former President Trump.

In issuing her latest ruling against Dr. Eastman – claiming that he continues to present a danger to the public – the California State Bar judge is not only denying him the ability to earn income as a lawyer, she is denying his clients the right to enjoy his continued representation of them.

For example, Dr. Eastman is representing conservative Congressmembers Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz in a lawsuit they are pursuing against two California cities for last minute cancellations of planned rallies following political backlash from leftwing officials and groups over allowing venues to be used for what Politico called “far-right political events.” The lawsuit seeks an order prohibiting these cities from ever again engaging in this prohibited conduct, and it will serve as a key wake-up call to other cities across the country that wish to censor conservative speakers.

He is currently representing the Colorado Republican Party in a legal challenge to the state’s “open primary” scheme in which non-Republicans are allowed to vote in GOP primaries and choose the party’s nominees, diluting the interests of Republican voters in the state.

Dr. Eastman is also representing a Colorado teenager who was targeted by officials at his high school for displaying a patch on his backpack featuring the Gadsen “Don’t Tread On Me” flag. School officials claimed that the flag was associated with slavery and racism when, in fact, it is a proud symbol of the American revolution.

Reps. Gaetz and Greene, along with other clients, asked the State Bar judge to allow Dr. Eastman to continue to represent them in court but she refused.

A primary purpose of lawfare is to destroy attorneys who represent clients who challenge liberal orthodoxy. Indeed, the head of a lawfare group that has been involved in attempts to have Dr. Eastman disbarred told an interviewer that their purpose is to “not only bring the grievances in the bar complaints, but shame them and make them toxic in their communities and in their firms.”

He went on to say, “I think the littler fish are probably more vulnerable to what we’re doing. You’re threatening their livelihood. And, you know, they’ve got reputations in their local communities.”

Well, thanks to the ruling of a biased Democrat-donating judge in a California State Bar show trial, Dr. Eastman’s livelihood is indeed threatened. And so is his ability to defend himself against the continuing lawfare assault waged against him.

Dr. Eastman is planning a vigorous appeal of the judge’s disbarment recommendation, but he is in urgent need of help to fund his defense in this appeal and the many other pending matters he is facing.

Your donation of $50$100$250$500$1,000 or $1,500 or more would make a big difference right now, and I’m sure would be hugely appreciated by Dr. Eastman and his entire family.

If possible, please also consider becoming a monthly donor to his legal defense fund. This lawfare assault has been going on for over a year now, and shows signs of continuing for at least that much longer. Knowing that his legal defense fund can rely on your help each month would allow his legal team to have confidence that the funding needed to aggressively defend against this lawfare abuse will be there.

While a leftwing judge claims that Dr. Eastman’s continued practice of law represents a danger to the public, what she really means is that it represents a danger to leftwing ideology and power.

Please be generous with your financial support of the John Eastman Legal Defense Fund as he appeals the disbarment recommendation and deals with the other pending legal threats to his livelihood, reputation and future.

As I noted earlier, Dr. Eastman, a conservative icon of the legal profession, is now dependent on the support of friends, family and fellow conservatives to support his defense against the outrageous, politically-motivated charges against him. Let us ensure that he has the resources needed to fight, and to win. Thank you.
