Trump lawyer John Eastman faces disciplinary charges in California

 Attorney John Eastman fought to overturn the 2020 presidential election and keep Donald Trump in power. Now, he's fighting to keep his law license.  The state bar of California argues Eastman knowingly pushed false conspiracy theories about the election and should be disbarred. Disciplinary hearings against Eastman started June 20.  

You can read, or listen to, more about the story here:  NPRNPR audioCourthouse NewsPolitico

Another article in Courthouse News reports that Eastman testified "about evidence gleaned from bad statistics and amateur ghost hunters" and that "[t]he disbarment hearing, initially set to last 8 days, is proceeding at a glacial pace. It will continue next week, then break for three weeks before finishing up at the end of August."

NPR has another audio report here.
