This couldn’t happen to a more deserving schmuck than John Eastman. His disbarment hearing before the State Bar of California may be live streamed. He, of course, is trying to couch himself as a victim and that is simply not working at all.
John Eastman, who wrote the legal brief Trump cited to pressure Pence to overturn the election, is complaining that he lost his job as a tenured law professor, and the judge ordered that his CA disbarment hearing be live-streamed this Tues so the American public can watch. pic.twitter.com/E1U891Eyo1

I like how this judge thinks. Whether the State Bar will do it, I have no idea.
Eastman, more than anybody, did more damage to this republic than any one person. It was his brainstorm to have the “alternate” slate of electors, who like “alternative facts” had no business being involved in the vote counting process. It was total fraud and a clever scheme to pull off a coup d’etat. The man is not a lawyer. He doesn’t have the ethics to continue to practice law.
And frankly, I hope that Jack Smith gets around to indicting him.
Maybe Eastman didn’t literally defecate in the Capitol, but he certainly defecated on the integrity of our elections process and on ideals that we hold dear.
If anybody deserves to be disbarred, it’s this guy.
