A California judge aided Democrats who have long weaponized the legal system to attack their political opponents this week when she recommended that constitutional lawyer John Eastman be disbarred for daring to question the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.

In her decision, longtime Democrat donor Judge Yvette Roland claimed that “Eastman’s wrongdoing constitutes exceptionally serious ethical violations warranting severe professional discipline.”

“Eastman made multiple patently false and misleading statements in court filings, in public remarks heard by countless Americans and to others regarding the conduct of the 2020 presidential election and Vice President Pence’s authority to refuse to count or delay counting properly certified slates of electoral votes on January 6, 2021,” she wrote.

As a result of the ruling, Eastman is expected to pay $10,000 in fines, and his law license will be placed in “involuntary inactive status” by Saturday.

Corporate media, which have granted special attention to the lawyers leading the lawfare against Democrats’ political opponents, rallied around Roland’s recommendation as a victory for the left’s partisan targeting campaign.

Forbes claimed Eastman’s potential disbarment was merely a “consequence” of his unacceptable opposition to Democrat lies that the 2020 election was the most secure in history and accused him and others of “Trying To Overturn The 2020 Election.” Politico and MSNBC smeared Eastman as the “architect of Trump’s election plot.”

Democrats have tried to disbar more than 100 attorneys who agreed to work on election integrity cases following the 2020 presidential election. With the help of positive amplification from the press, they expanded that lawfare to lawyers around the country who defend conservatives, including half of Republican attorneys general.

Eastman, in particular, faced scrutiny from the FBI, House Democrats’ sham Jan. 6 Committee, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. State Bar of California (SBC) prosecutors, at the behest of a leftist legal group founded by a former Obama White House official, also investigated and filed 11 charges against Eastman because he advised former President Donald Trump on how to handle the 2020 election shenanigans.

As The Federalist’s Shawn Fleetwood noted last year, Roland repeatedly “appeared very antagonistic towards Eastman and his legal team while at the same time giving preferential treatment to the prosecution” during the trial.

“In one instance, Roland allowed the SBC to call witnesses such as Stephen Richer to testify despite having no relevance to the trial. Richer, who serves as Maricopa County, Arizona’s election recorder, regularly attacks conservatives concerned about election integrity issues and oversaw Maricopa’s disastrous and chaotic 2022 midterm elections,” Fleetwood wrote.

In her ruling, Roland complained that Eastman defended himself in a response eviscerating the SBC prosecutors’ allegations that he knowingly promoted “false” information about the 2020 election.

“His lack of insight into the wrongfulness of his misconduct is deeply troubling,” Roland wrote. “While Eastman is entitled to defend himself, his conduct goes beyond this, revealing a complete failure to understand the wrongfulness of his actions.”

Eastman’s legal counsel maintains that the constitutional scholar’s “handling of the legal issues he was asked to assess after the November 2020 election was based on reliable legal precedent, prior residential [sic] elections, research of constitutional text, and extensive scholarly material.”
