Legal analyst Jennifer Rubin wrote on Sunday that Donald Trump “has plenty to worry about” after a recent ruling from a California state bar court on Wednesday. The ruling recommended stripping John Eastman, Trump’s former attorney, of his law license.

Ruling Was Issued After Complaint Against Eastman Last Year

The ruling was reportedly issued by Judge Yvette Roland after a complaint was filed against Eastman by the California State Bar in 2023. Roland found that Eastman was culpable in 10 out of the 11 counts filed against him.

The counts filed against him were related to his alleged efforts in helping the former U.S. President to overturn the 2020 presidential election defeat of Donald Trump. Judge Roland concluded that Eastman should be disbarred for “misconduct.”

Roland’s Recommendation Will Now Go Before Supreme Court

The next step is that Roland’s recommendation must now go before the Supreme Court in California. That court will be responsible for issuing the final ruling.

Rubin noted that the First Amendment defense was already rejected by Judge Tanya Chutkan regarding Donald Trump. That rejection took place with Jack Smith’s federal election case.

Rubin added that Trump “has plenty to worry about in DC and Georgia” as we. She elaborated by stating that “Trump is likely to face much of the same evidence and to offer the same defenses,” which should create room for that concern.

Rubin said that “no one, it seems is buying their excuses.”

Roland’s Ruling Stated That ‘The Evidence Clearly And Convincingly’ Offers Proof

According to Roland’s ruling, “the evidence clearly and convincingly proves that Eastman and President Trump entered into an agreement to obstruct the joint session of Congress.” The ruling adds that this was done “by unlawfully having Vice President Pence reject or delay the counting of electoral votes on January 6, 2021.”

Roland continued by stating that the “court finds weighty circumstantial evidence demonstrating a collaborative effort between Eastman and President Trump.” This conclusion was reached “upon consideration of the totality of the facts.”
