DODGERS WON TODAY!

Great game!

Trump coup plotter John Eastman is finally facing real accountability

Former president Donald Trump and his supporters have blamed his indictment on a “two-tiered” justice system. As it happens, we do have a two-tiered system, but here’s a better example of it: Hundreds of ordinary people have been convicted of attacking the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, yet not one member of Trump’s inner circle of coup-plotters has faced real accountability for it.

This is an excellent article with points I found to be well taken. I only posted the first paragraph because, frankly, I found so many of the paragraphs informative and interesting that I could not choose which ones to post.

The discussion of the difference between the State Bar proceedings in New York re Giuliani and California re Eastman pointed out, at least to me, that Eastman is facing -- for essentially the same conduct -- a different disciplinary hearing in California as versus New York. IMO, the CalBar is extremely serious about going after Eastman for "corrupting the law to subvert the constitution." Giuliani is looking at charges for false statements as a lawyer. While what Giuliani did is unacceptable, the CalBar appears to me to label Eastman, basically, as unAmerican and a traitor.

Also of interest, again to me, was the discussion of the testimony by Greg Jacob, Pence's attorney, wherein he stated his view on Eastman's responsibility for J6.

An excellent read. Hope you enjoy.

Eastman disbarment proceedings over 2020 election begin in California

[link:https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-apps/imrs.php?src=&w=916|

Conservative attorney John Eastman defended himself before the State Bar of California on Tuesday in a disbarment hearing focused on his role in developing a legal strategy to help President Donald Trump stay in power after his 2020 election loss.

Eastman faces 11 charges stemming from allegations that he was the architect of the legal road map Trump followed in an effort to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 election by obstructing the electoral vote count in certain states.

Eastman is also accused of making false and misleading statements regarding alleged election fraud, the State Bar said, referencing claims he made at a rally at the Ellipse outside the White House that preceded the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. If Eastman is found culpable for the allegations, he could lose his license to practice law in California.

Much of Eastman’s testimony Tuesday focused on the sources and validity of figures Eastman had used to push the idea that thousands of fraudulent ballots had been cast in Georgia. On the stand, Eastman remained somewhat defiant when presented with data from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger that disputed, among other claims by Eastman, that 66,000 underage people and 2,500 convicted felons had voted in the state in the 2020 election.

IMO, he is going to be disbarred. There are 11 Counts and the charges are serious: Failure to Support the Constitution and Laws of the United State, Misleading a Court and counts of Moral Turpitude, etc. Here is a link to the Cal Bar Disciplinary Complaint:

Cataract surgery...how long does it take to heal?

It looks like I have a cataract in my left eye. Right eye is 20/20, but need surgery on the left.

From start to finish, how long does it take to get back to taking care of yourself? I hate to be dependent on anyone.

Thanks for any info!
