Well, he got his wish to be arrested before he was disbarred:
John Eastman, the conservative attorney who pushed a plan to keep Donald Trump in power, turned himself in to authorities Tuesday on charges in the Georgia case alleging an illegal plot to overturn the former president’s 2020 election loss.
Eastman was booked at the Fulton County jail and is expected to have an arraignment in the coming weeks in the sprawling racketeering case.
He was indicted last week alongside Trump and 17 others, who are accused by District Attorney Fani Willis of scheming to subvert the will of Georgia voters in a desperate bid to keep Joe Biden out of the White House. It was the fourth criminal case brought against the Republican former president.
This is the primary defense of Trump and his co-conspirators at this pojnt — to describe illegal conduct at a high level abstraction, or to single out one isolated phrase of the indictment to make it sound as if someone is being charged for innocuous conduct. It’s like reading the indictment of Timothy McVeigh and saying “so it’s illegal to buy fertilizer and rent a truck now?”
