John Eastman served as President Trump’s lawyer on several legal challenges arising out of the 2020 election, including President Trump’s Motion to Intervene in the U.S. Supreme Court in Texas v. Pennsylvania et al., and Trump’s own Petition in Trump v. Boockvar asking the Supreme Court to review three unconstitutional Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions. Dr. Eastman also advised the President about constitutional ways to prevent illegal conduct of the election from determining the results, and he spoke before the President at the Save America rally on January 6.

For his efforts to ensure a free and fair election, he was “retired” from his tenured faculty position at Chapman University’s law school, where he had previously served as Dean, and had his classes and speaking responsibilities canceled at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he was serving as the Visiting Professor of Conservative Thought and Policy. He has been targeted by hardcore leftist activists who have filed a bar complaint against him, seeking to have him disbarred and thereby lose his source of income. He has also been subpoenaed by the hyper-partisan January 6 Committee in the House of Representatives, which is targeting anyone involved in election integrity efforts as well as those engaged in freedom of speech and association to voice their objections to illegality in the conduct of the election. Responding to both of these attacks has required Dr. Eastman to hire outside counsel, at significant cost to himself.

And then, last month, radical Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney indicted me, along with President Trump and 17 others, claiming that our efforts to challenge illegality in the election were a mob-like criminal enterprise.  This is an unprecedented weaponization of the criminal law against political opponents, and we simply cannot allow it to go unchallenged; we must defend against this with everything we have.

We, as Americans, need to push back against illegal conduct in elections. Elections are the way we give our “consent” to government, and if they are not free and fair, We the People are no longer sovereign and we no longer have a government that derives its “just powers from the consent of the governed,” as the Declaration of Independence promises. The stakes for freedom are high, and Dr. Eastman asks for your support.


Oct 9,2023 – More Than enough

Since I began putting on my case in early September, we’ve heard lots of evidence of illegality and outright fraud in the conduct of the 2020 election – more than enough to support the statements I made at the time and for which the bar is accusing me of making false statements.

Sept 28,2023 – Here is the evidence

California state bar prosecutors are hoping that their ongoing trial against me puts a nail in my coffin and thoroughly undermines my work on behalf of President Trump to challenge illegalities and fraud in the 2020 election. You see, the crux of their case against me is the claim that there is no evidence of […]

Sept 25,2023 – Six long weeks

The outrageous prosecution of me by California state bar officials enters its sixth week with the trial resuming on Tuesday.  The term “prosecution” is really not apt. It’s more like persecution by activist lawyers determined to “get” President Trump and every lawyer like me who had the temerity to defend his right to lawfully challenge illegalities […]

Sept 9,2023 – Lawfare

The targeting of me by leftwing prosecutors and state bar officials is nothing short of lawfare. There are two important reasons these radicals are misusing their positions of power to go after me: First, they hate President Trump and they want to destroy him and anyone who has the temerity to defend his right to […]

Sept 7, 2023 – “American Despotism”

As I'm preparing for yet another day of testimony in the California Bar trial -- today will be the 7th day, approaching 20 hours -- and watching closely the ongoing court proceedings in the Georgia criminal indictment against me, former President Trump, and a host of other lawyers and citizens who dared to challenge the illegality in the 2020 election, an important article from Newt Gingrich crossed my radar.

Sep 05, 2023 – No, Jennifer Rubin, Dr John Eastman’s Defense is Not Doing Poorly

Former Republican Jennifer Rubin wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post last week criticizing Trump attorney John Eastman’s defense in the California bar disbarment trial against him. Unlike her, I’ve watched every minute of the trial, which is going into the third week. The bar is desperately trying to show there was no legal authority for Eastman to advise Trump that Mike Pence could have rejected electoral slates from states suspected of election fraud, but as more evidence comes out, their case is getting weaker and weaker.
