Two years after penning the infamous “coup memo,” the California Bar Association is recommending that former Chapman Law Professor John Eastman be disbarred.
According to a release, there are 11 disciplinary counts (PDF). One count is, “Failure to Support the Constitution and Laws of the United States. There are two counts of “Seeking to Mislead a Court.” The Bar Association also cites six counts of “Moral Turpitude – Misrepresentation,” and two counts of simply “Moral Turpitude.”
“There is nothing more sacrosanct to our American democracy than free and fair elections and the peaceful transfer of power,” said State Bar of California’s Chief Trial Counsel George Cardona in the filing. “For California attorneys, adherence to the U.S. and California Constitutions is their highest legal duty. The Notice of Disciplinary Charges alleges that Mr. Eastman violated this duty in furtherance of an attempt to usurp the will of the American people and overturn election results for the highest office in the land—an egregious and unprecedented attack on our democracy—for which he must be held accountable.”
