The former Trump campaign lawyer was the second of 19 co-defendants known to surrender this week after a lengthy indictment was unsealed last week alleging Mr Trump, Mr Eastman and others on numerous counts of offenses related to vote-rigging were charged, including violating the state’s RICO law.
Mr Trump is believed to be planning a surrender on Thursday.
It is well known that Mr. Eastman, once one of the leaders of efforts to interfere in the balloting process, wholeheartedly welcomed the idea that only Republicans across the country should rewrite election results based on nonsensical conspiracy theories that he and his Colleagues could not prove the court. He is also known to have supported the use of the US military to quell riots that he and others had anticipated in the wake of planned interference in the counting of the January 6 Electoral College elections.
He also faces eight other felonies, including asking a public official to break his oath of office.
There is more to come…
