The disbarment trial of Donald Trump’s attorney and constitutional scholar, John Eastman, concluded its fourth week on Friday, as Eastman’s team put on his case featuring their key witness, former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman. The Wisconsin Assembly contracted Gableman to conduct a small investigation into election fraud in the state’s 2020 election, the same issues prompted Eastman’s involvement in the election litigation in Wisconsin.
Eastman (pictured above) said during his testimony that although he was one of Trump’s attorneys, his advice wasn’t always taken. For example, Trump’s two lawsuits in Georgia were voluntarily dismissed after the January 6 protest since others decided they were open to debate. Eastman said he would not have backed down.
Gableman expanded on his testimony from Thursday, revealing that Wisconsin Speaker of the House Robin Vos didn’t want a “deep” investigation. Gableman said Vos eventually fired him and the team he’d compiled after eight months of work because it was “politically inconvenient.”
His team consisted almost entirely of out-of-state attorneys because not a single attorney in Wisconsin would agree to work with him on the project out of fear of retaliation. Eventually, a few months into the investigation, one Wisconsin attorney joined his team.
Eastman’s attorney, Randy Miller, spent much of the day asking Gableman about his findings, which he produced in primarily one report for the legislature. Part of his report went over the option for the legislature to decertify the election if they found fraud. Miller asked Gableman whether he agreed with Wisconsin election official Meagan Wolfe’s statement that their election was “conducted according to the law” and “in the open.” Gableman said no.
