The Lawfare Against John Eastman and Jeff Clark Portend The Fate of Every Right-Leaning Attorney Who Fails To Stand Up For Their Persecuted Colleagues | The Gateway Pundit


If the Biden Regime will be summarized by a single phrase, it might be: injustice.  No presidential administration within the historical past of the USA ever noticed such an egregious assault on civil liberties and the rule of legislation, particularly constitutional due course of and the presumption of innocence, than what’s now occurring underneath Biden and his weaponized Division of Justice at this time.  Donald Trump is, after all, Political Hostage Numero Uno of the weaponized justice system – and his white martyrdom on the hand of a deeply subverted justice system on this nation has galvanized his base, and his countrymen, to ranges that surpass anytime since he first entered politics in 2015.

People acknowledge the grave injustice of what’s now unfolding in courtrooms throughout the nation.  However after all, the casualties of America’s weaponized justice system span properly past President Trump, extending to attorneys who represented him throughout that almost all making an attempt interval for the republic, between November of 2020 and January of 2021, when the Structure was placed on the chopping block.  The few attorneys who did rise as much as defend President Trump channeled the courageous spirit of the Founding Fathers in doing so, placing actually all the pieces on the road – their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor – when just about no person else within the career (and that’s with out exaggeration) would do the identical.

Two such attorneys, John Eastman and Jeffrey Clark, entered the storm as a lot of their friends turned a blind eye — or actively turned against them.  That the majority turbulent interval within the days and weeks following the 2020 election put strains on our constitutional type of authorities to a level not seen in generations, at the least spanning again to the Civil Warfare period.  However it’s in periods of trials and tribulations, not of peace and tranquility, that the Structure’s sturdiness is put to the final word check.  So as to preserve a republic amid nice adversity, distinctive males of character should stand up – and go in opposition to the grain, to protect the time-honored traditions and sacred lifestyle incubated and handed down from one technology to the following.

Eastman and Clark have been two such males of remarkable character who rose to the event and heeded the decision, of not simply their President (and shopper, for which there are essential attorney-client privileges hooked up), who requested them to make sound and cheap enquiries into widespread allegations of election fraud affecting the 2020 race, however the wealthy heritage of their forefathers – who additionally sacrificed an excellent deal when confronted with lengthy odds, to protect the reason for freedom.  Previous to their involvement within the 2020 election, Eastman and Clark have been two of essentially the most eminent attorneys within the nation.  They every boasted spectacular resumes: Eastman was a graduate of the College of Chicago, who later clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas and labored as a companion at Kirkland & Ellis, one of the crucial prestigious legislation companies wherever.  Clark additionally matriculated from considered one of this nation’s prime legislation faculties: Georgetown, which, coupled along with his Harvard diploma in economics and historical past, helped land him a prestigious clerkship on the Sixth Circuit, adopted by a place additionally at Kirkland & Ellis, the place he made companion and labored for over 20 years – interrupted solely by two stints within the Division of Justice underneath George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump.  By no means as soon as had both man’s character, ethics, judgment, or {qualifications} been doubted at any time limit previous to January of 2021, by no means thoughts been accused of getting dedicated a breach {of professional} ethics, not to mention indicted for against the law.

Eastman and Clark supplemented their encyclopedic information of American legislation with deep research in political philosophy, concept, and historical past.  Eastman was a pupil of Harry V. Jaffa, considered one of America’s foremost pure legislation theorists, who, persevering with a venerable mental custom that started along with his personal professor, Leo Strauss, famously made specific America’s pure law-based constitutional underpinnings in works similar to A Home Divided.

Clark, likewise, is a pupil of historical past, possessing an enviable grasp of Soviet historical past, specifically – and, pertinently, via his deep research of the persecutions that occurred in opposition to political dissidents underneath Stalin, Khrushchev, and Brezhnev, as viscerally recounted within the works of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, whom he steadily invokes, with uncanny germaneness, when given the chance to take action in public speeches.

It’s partly because of their scholarly backgrounds that Eastman and Clark perceive, actually higher than most of their colleagues, the excessive stakes of not upholding the Structure – in addition to the tyranny that inevitably flows from inaction.  That tyranny they each are experiencing firsthand, in actual time, with the disbarments they face – Eastman obtained information final Wednesday, halfway via Holy Week for training Catholics (a religion to which each males belong), that he was being disbarred by the State Bar of California.  His crime?  Standing with President Trump and educating the President about Govt actions he may take, as Commander-in-Chief, to treatment perceived electoral fraud all through the system.  Eastman now-famously suggested Vice President Pence that he had the facility, underneath the Structure (which the Congress later amended in 2022, defanging the Vice President’s function in overseeing elections to a purely ‘ministerial’ responsibility), to return slates of electors again to states – significantly states, like Georgia and Arizona, topic to accusations, and proof, of widespread fraud, last-minute rule adjustments, and irregularities of all kinds.

Nothing of what Eastman suggested the previous Vice President to do was unconstitutional, a lot much less unreasonable.  He provided a sound interpretation of the doc, according to the textual content and longstanding historical past of election legislation, from the authority of a authorized scholar properly steeped in these points, on the behest of a President of the USA, because the nation was teetering on the point of outright constitutional disaster.  For these maneuvers, none of which impute legal or civil legal responsibility underneath any statute, nor are outfitted with the ample intent to determine legal responsibility by the requisite evidentiary authorized customary (“clear and convincing proof”) within the first place, Eastman is being penalized by the heavy hand of the State.

In a Substack article and press release revealed the day the California State Bar really useful he be disbarred, Eastman mentioned that he would enchantment the choice — all the way in which to the Supreme Courtroom, if want be:

We are going to enchantment the choice, after all, and hopefully the California Bar Assessment Courtroom, the California Supreme Courtroom, or the U.S. Supreme Courtroom will step in to place a cease to this “lawfare” that has turn out to be a critical risk to the First Modification, the correct of controversial shoppers and causes to authorized illustration, and extra broadly to our adversarial system of justice. Additionally hooked up under is the assertion put out by my attorneys earlier this night

Eastman’s willingness to enchantment the sham disbarment ruling all the way in which to the Supreme Courtroom is admirable, and one thing he ought to do. The Supreme Courtroom, and significantly Trump-appointed judges and justices throughout the judiciary, ought to get forward of the curve by both fast-tracking Eastman and Clark’s case via the federal court docket system, in order that they’ll obtain a good listening to and never be topic to the indignities of Leftist lawfare by way of hostile judges, juries, and venues. Or, on the very least, challenge a powerful and emphatic public assertion denouncing this type of penalty in opposition to two of the bravest males within the career. If Justice Thomas, for whom Eastman previously clerked, for example (or any justice of the Supreme Courtroom for that matter), have been to challenge a public assertion to rally judicial sentiment on behalf of this most essential trigger, that might go a great distance in the direction of growing morale and sending a sign that this sort of lawfare in opposition to anybody, however particularly attorneys who faithfully adhere to the unique building of the Structure, is not to be tolerated.

Jeff Clark was serving as Performing United States Assistant Lawyer Common for the Civil Division of the Division of Justice when he was summoned by President Trump to inquire into allegations of election fraud within the state of Georgia, amongst different locations.  Clark has confronted legal expenses for making trustworthy inquiries into election fraud affecting the 2020 outcomes, significantly within the Peach State, where the evidence overwhelmingly proves was riven with fraud, for which he was indicted, and compelled to take a mugshot, alongside each Eastman and President Trump, final summer season.

It’s an affront to the rule of legislation when skilled attorneys are topic to legal prosecution for merely upholding election procedures to a rigorous customary – which would seem extra essential than ever in an age the place narratives of election fraud, conspiracy and subversion appear to eat at the least half the information cycle, from either side of the political aisle, twenty 4 hours of the day, seven days per week.  Jeff Clark did ask the robust questions, and, for making easy inquiries about election procedures in Georgia, he’s now being prosecuted for shining a lightweight upon the incompetence of Georgia’s Uniparty, of whom each Kemp and Willis are kindred spirits.

For exposing them, Clark, Eastman, Trump, Giuliani, et al. have needed to pay a substantial worth – to their lives, reputations, even well being (the agonies of going via spiritually crushing litigation day-in-and-day-out have a long-lasting bodily toll), as a lot as a psychological and non secular one.  It makes excellent sense, nonetheless, that in our DEI-regime, the place all requirements (and, particularly, the requirements for competence, integrity, honesty) are frequently demeaned and denigrated to no finish – nay, to even suggest goal requirements for fact, morality, and competence in our day and age is taken into account an egregious assault on the egalitarian values of the Regime, actually exposing oneself to being blanket-labeled a grimy racist and Nazi! That attorneys like Clark, who’ve tried to carry the authorized career to some type of accountability, is now being handled like a villain.

And but, as everyone knows (too, too properly!) from the Fani Willis affair, Georgia’s Uniparty is the epitome of incompetence; and, as time would present, their damaged election procedures – which included late night time poll drop offs, arbitrary rule adjustments that amplify the chance of permitting lifeless voters and illegals to forged votes by way of absentee ballots, a whole and whole lack of transparency – or impartiality – in election counting procedures – solely scratched the floor.

The illegitimacy of Georgia’s regnant political class is being uncovered, in actual time, with the corrupt present trial happening there, presided over by District Lawyer, Fani Willis, and her particular prosecutor and, infamously, ex(?)-paramour, Nathan Wade, who was patently unqualified to tackle a very powerful legal case within the nation, a hatchet job in opposition to a President of the USA – having by no means a lot as prosecuted petty misdemeanors earlier than in his former submit as a glorified municipal visitors court docket choose, earlier than being tapped (pegged?) by Fani for the job that might immortalize him to the historical past books.  The egregious battle of curiosity between Willis and Wade violated just about each canon of authorized and judicial ethics, each rule {of professional} accountability, within the books – in every other time, each Wade and Willis would haven’t solely been compelled to recuse themselves however have been disbarred from training legislation for abusing and profiting off their public places of work, on the expense of Georgia residents.  In fact, Republican Governor – and recognized Trump-hater and common Davos attendee – Brian Kemp, may instantly put an finish to this charade, by requesting that his Attorney General, Chris Carr, take over the case from Willis and Wade, pursuant to Georgia State Constitution, Article V, Section III, Paragraph IV. That he nonetheless has not bespeaks to his character, and true allegiances, to the Uniparty over the values of the Republican Occasion, now in thrall to MAGA, to which he publicly professes.

In fact, the debacle that unraveled with Fani Willis’ workplace scratches simply the tip of the iceberg of corruption inside Georgia’s justice division.  As readily noticed by anybody paying even the slightest consideration to Clark’s ongoing Washington, D.C. disbarment continuing, the D.C. Bar legal professional for the prosecution has been reportedly very hostile to Clark’s own witnesses.  These are witnesses who have been tasked with overseeing Georgia’s election procedures in the course of the 2020 common election.  Witnesses have testified to circumstances of blatant fraud: one mentioned there have been extra voters on the energetic rolls than eligible voters.  One other testified that Fulton County election officers did not do any digital signature verification for absentee ballots.  Others famous important disparities between ballots counted by hand, and people which have been counted by machine – with no rationalization or decision for these disparities.  Every considered one of these allegations, on their very own, would unquestionably lend any cheap observer into asking follow-up questions, and probably opening up an investigation into allegations of fraud, if such fraud was deemed a systemic concern or inadequate causes got for the allegations, which did happen.  This, Jeff Clark did – and for merely doing what any cheap individual would have accomplished underneath the circumstances (not to mention somebody in an official capability as head of not one, however two divisions on the Justice Division), he’s being persecuted – as a result of the Left can not stand Donald Trump, the Structure, or the correct to talk and assume exterior their extraordinarily closed and slim worldview.

As conservative so-called “authorized professionals,” these belonging to organizations as soon as thought of esteemed similar to The Federalist Society, by and huge tergiversate on inconsequential trivia, the Left has mastered the artwork of authorized warfare – and punishes its perceived enemies, like Trump, Eastman, and Clark — with shameless abandon.  Members of John Eastman’s household have witheringly detailed Left-wing lawfare strategies and ways, performed with inhumane callousness, by teams similar to “The 65 Mission,” which has, you guessed it, ties to George Soros.

In a latest piece revealed on The Gatestone Institute, Elizabeth Eastman, John’s spouse, discussed the disgraceful strategies of Leftist lawfare teams like The 65 Mission:

The group targets attorneys who litigated 2020 election irregularities or represented President Donald Trump. It does this by submitting complaints in opposition to them in state bar associations, contending not solely that the lawsuits have been meritless however that anybody concerned in them ought to be sanctioned — as much as and together with disbarment.

Additional down in that very same article, Elizabeth Eastman describes how the The 65 Mission’s purpose is to marginalize and stigmatize conservative voices out of representing controversial shoppers or standing for unpopular causes:

The top of the group has admitted that their aim is “to discourage right-wing expertise from signing on to any future GOP efforts” to problem elections, not solely by bringing bar complaints however to “disgrace them and make them poisonous of their communities and their companies.”

In an analogous piece, Eastman’s youngsters – Christina and Benjamin – writing for The Blaze, referred to as upon conservative and right-leaning judges, attorneys, and authorized lecturers to talk out in opposition to the Left’s weaponization of the justice system to persecute and silence political opponents, earlier than it’s too late.  In a bitingly highly effective name to motion, Eastman’s youngsters demanded that extra of their colleagues and mates arise in opposition to the forces on this nation which have ruthlessly focused their father for the previous three-plus years – together with dying threats, property harm, tens of millions of {dollars} in authorized charges, accidents to his skilled repute that he constructed up over a long time, and different untold private prices.

Their calls for to, as they phrased it, “the conservative authorized nonprofit equipment,” was particularly poignant.  It’s completely appalling that only a few different conservative attorneys, district attorneys, attorneys common, judges, legislation companies, authorized nonprofits, and different authorized (and non-legal, “constitutional”) professionals have accomplished hardly something to – overlook about difficult the Left with offensive lawfare – besides a lot as failed to supply, on the naked minimal, supporting phrases for their very own mates, like Eastman and Clark, who’ve made huge sacrifices standing up for what’s right from the very starting:

To the conservative authorized nonprofit equipment: There isn’t any scarcity of choices to pursue an offensive or defensive lawfare technique. Decide one and get into the struggle. File bar complaints in opposition to rogue prosecutors. Refer corrupt judges to state judicial {qualifications} commissions. Marketing campaign for the impeachment of partisan judges. Develop into concerned with bar associations to make sure a extra evenly balanced disciplinary course of. Present counsel or authorized protection funds to attorneys weathering this storm in your behalf — as a result of Eastman received’t be the final.

Their demands on the authorized career typically are equally harrowing, and essential, given the extremely excessive stakes concerned for America and her future:

To attorneys on either side of the political aisle: The integrity of your career is hanging by a thread. Implore your state bars to maintain political pursuits out of their work.

The whole piece is properly price a learn, as a result of it grounds Eastman’s ongoing struggle within the broader context of what it means for the authorized career specifically, and civil liberties and due course of rights for all People, basically.

Eastman and Clark — who additionally confronted just about the identical challenges Eastman skilled when it comes to damage to his skilled repute, to say nothing of untold tens of millions of {dollars} of authorized charges he has (and continues to) racked up — could also be two of essentially the most distinguished names main the vanguard of this battle. But when the Left is permitted to hold out its political prosecution in opposition to them with impunity, their fates will portend the collective fates of each single final American, who nonetheless, at this late stage, stays fearfully silent within the face of unspeakable evil.  In every other age, given their pedigrees, Eastman and Clark each can be on the prime of each listing to be thought of for the following Supreme Courtroom opening, or Lawyer Common submit, or for White Home Counsel (and, if God’s will prevails, they nonetheless would possibly).  However, given Leftist lawfare, which has tarnished the great names of each males, they’re as an alternative utilizing their beneficial presents completely in the direction of defending themselves – which is an amazing waste of time, power, and sources, that does a colossal disservice to not simply these males and their households, nor even simply the conservative motion, however to the nation at giant, as a result of all of us are being disadvantaged the fruits of their immense choices.

Name To Motion:

Thus, if you will discover it in your coronary heart to donate to each these males – given the sacrifices they’ve endured on behalf of the reason for freedom, and the implications of their circumstances for the remainder of us, they and their households would most recognize your generosity.
