Attorney John Eastman Surrenders To Authorities On Charges In Georgia 2020 Election Subversion Case

ATLANTA (AP) — A conservative attorney who pushed a plan to keep Donald Trump in power has turned himself in to authorities on charges in the Georgia case alleging an illegal plot to overturn the then-president’s 2020 election loss.

John Eastman was booked at the Fulton County jail Tuesday.

Eastman is charged alongside Trump and 17 others, who are accused by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis with scheming to subvert the will of Georgia voters in a desperate bid to keep the Republican president in the White House after he lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

Eastman says the indictment “should never have been brought.”
