Last month a request to investigate John C. Eastman was made to the California bar association. It suggested serious evidence of professional misconduct by Eastman in his efforts to assist his client Donald J. Trump in discrediting and overturning the the results of the 2020 presidential election. Specifically their efforts were directed toward hijacking or postponing the final count of the electoral votes at the January 6, 2021 Joint Session of Congress.
Currently the House select committee is investigating the January 6, 2012 US Capitol insurrection and have stated that they plan to subpoena Eastman. They want to uncover our past President’s role in the planning and inciting of the riot. It is not known if he will comply. It was stated that a court order was avoidable if Eastman voluntarily chose to cooperate with the committee’s inquiry. Otherwise he risks being held in criminal contempt of Congress.
Eastman is the originator of the Eastman Memo, a report that outlined how then-Vice President Mike Pence could subvert the Constitution and throw out the 2020 election results on January 6th, giving Donald Trump a second term. The truth is that Pence understood that his vice-presidential duty was largely ceremonial and decided not to rock the political boat. He followed protocol, counted votes and certified the election results making Biden U.S. President #46
There is no doubt where Eastman stands as to “do-overs” and “dirty tricks.” He came to candidate Trump’s attention after authoring a nasty story about Kamala Harris. Eastman asserted that because her parents were immigrants, Harris was ineligible to run for national office. FactCheck reports that the citizenship of a candidate’s parents does not disqualify their candidacy. Harris met all the requirements for elected office; she was born in the USA and is over 35 years old. Newsweek later apologized for publishing the piece. Eastman did not .
It’s now been revealed that on the morning of the January 6th riot Eastman attended a meeting at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel. A command center had been set up less than a block from the White House to oversee the “overthrow” of the presidential election. There the “bright lights” of the Trump’s political career gathered, namely Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn. According to reports approximately 30 of Trump’s associates participated in planning the effort which resulted in five deaths and injury to 140 capitol police officers.
“Lawyers, particularly those who represent elected and appointed officials, have a solemn duty to the public to advise their clients within the four corners of the law, and to ensure that they do not allow themselves to become the tools by which those officials seek to undermine

#50 THU TAU
John C. Eastman
John C. Eastman was born on a Thursday in the zodiac sign of Taurus. Jupiter is the ruler of his INNER Self and Venus governs his OUTER Self. Those born with the #50 Dayology Signature have a good opinion of themselves and their personal abilities. Their values are conservative but often betrayed by their sinister hopes and dreams. They do just fine if they walk the line.
Thursday types generally rise to the top of their professions or they die trying. Eastman earned his J.D. degree from the University of Chicago Law School, and a Ph.D. in Government from Claremont Graduate School. He clerked for the Supreme Court Justice, the honorable Clarence Thomas. He is the founder of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, a think tank with the mission of restoring the “constitutional protections created by our Founding Fathers.”
Eastman found employment for two years as an attorney at Kirkland & Ellis, the U.S. law firm and that represented the Brown & Williamson tobacco company famous for chemically enhancing the addictiveness of cigarettes. He also ran, unsuccessfully, as the 1990 Republican nominee for United States House of Representatives in the California’s 34th congressional district and in 2010 he failed in his pursuit of the Republican nomination for California Attorney General.
Given his spotty character and checkered career, it is easy to see why Eastman was welcomed into Trump’s inner circle. He had the perfect credentials. And because Eastman is one of the bad boys he is being called to share what he knows about Trump. So how did things end up so wrong for Eastman? It may be as simple as having attached his wagon to a bad reality television star.
