Former President Trump’s ex-attorney John Eastman responded to a California judge’s effort to have him disbarred over his role in attempting to overturn the 2020 election saying he’s optimistic he will win his appeal.

Eastman said in an interview on conservative network Frank Speech on Thursday that “there’s a lot of water to go under the bridge yet” before the state Supreme Court hears his case.

“If the law was faithfully followed, this case should have never been brought in the first place,” he said. 

“We had a disagreement on the facts of the 2020 election. We had a disagreement on the constitutional interpretation on issues that have never been settled,” Eastman continued. “That has never been the basis of disciplinary action.”

State Bar Judge Yvette Roland found Eastman culpable in 10 of 11 charges against him.

“In view of the circumstances surrounding Eastman’s misconduct and balancing the aggravation and mitigation, the court recommends that Eastman be disbarred,” she wrote in a 128-page decision.

He also revealed he has been subpoenaed as part of a civil suit brought by a group of Capitol Police officers against Trump. The officers claim Trump is responsible for Jan. 6, and they hope to elicit financial penalties for the violence they suffered in the riots.

“I just got a subpoena served on us last week by the Capitol Police officers seeking everything, all of my communications with the president and anybody else,” he said. “They’ve completely blown through attorney-client privilege.”

While his case is under appeal, Eastman is suspended from practicing law in California.

  1. So many judges or attorneys are paid off to take anyone connected to Trump arrested and that goes for the Capitol Police, FBI and CIA among others. We all see it. We all are on to them. I pray for them to be punished for their evil deeds. I give my blessing to Trump.
