California files disciplinary complaint against John Eastman, the lawyers for the Trump campaign credited to have come up with a plan to have Mike Pence reject the results of the presidential election

Last week, the State Bar of California filed 11 disciplinary charges against attorney John Eastman based on his efforts to help overturn the results of the 2020 election in order to allow then-President Donald Trump remain in office.  The news release by the State Bar of California is here.

According to an Op-Ed published in the Los Angeles Times, "[a]ccountability for Eastman is long overdue" because, even though he knew he was providing unlawful advice, he advised Mike Pence "to reject [Joe] Biden’s certification or otherwise tamper with it."
