Calif. seeks to disbar Trump adviser John Eastman for role in subverting election

The State Bar of California intends to seek the disbarment of former president Donald Trump’s election attorney John Eastman for his role in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

In a statement, the office of California Bar’s Chief Trial Counsel George Cardona said Eastman faces 11 disciplinary charges, all arising from allegations that he was behind Trump’s plan to obstruct the count of electoral votes.

Per the statement, Eastman is accused of making false and misleading statements regarding alleged election fraud — including 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. In the explanation of the charges, the California Bar directly connects Eastman’s speech to the insurrection, saying he “contributed to provoking a crowd to assault and breach the Capitol to intimidate then-Vice President [Mike] Pence and prevent the electoral count from proceeding.”

Stephen Gillers, a professor at the New York University School of Law who specializes in legal ethics, called the set of accusations levied at Eastman “scathing.”

California's 'MAGA-led' county bans Dominion voting machines in heated meeting

Source: San Francisco Chronicle/By Eric Ting

California's Shasta County — where hard-line conservatives hold a 4-1 majority on the county board of supervisors following the results of the November 2022 elections — terminated its contract with Dominion Voting Systems Tuesday evening. The justification? Widely debunked claims of mass voter fraud.

The county, described by the New York Times as "MAGA-led" following the recall of longtime Supervisor Leonard Moty in February 2022, is California's ground zero for "Stop the Steal" madness. Since November 2020, county elections chief Cathy Darling Allen has had to deal with everything from "aggressive" individuals impersonating elections officials to frivolous demands that the office defy state law and preserve records it is required to destroy.

Allen was thrown another curveball last week: Board President Patrick Jones, a key figure in the Moty recall who previously boasted to SFGATE that his dietary habits would protect him against COVID-19, added an agenda item to Tuesday night's meeting calling for a discussion of the Dominion contract. The company has been the subject of many bogus conspiracy theories and has since filed high-profile defamation lawsuits against Fox News, Newsmax and OAN.

"We've been having this conversation for a while, so I'm not sitting here shocked and appalled," Allen told SFGATE Wednesday morning. "Well, I'm appalled. But shocked? No."

Manchin pushes to delay tax credits for electric vehicles

Source: Associated Press/By MATTHEW DALY

WASHINGTON (AP) — Ratcheting up his criticism, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin on Wednesday moved to delay new tax credits for electric vehicles, a key feature of President Joe Biden’s landmark climate law.

Manchin said guidelines issued by the Treasury Department allow manufacturers in Europe and other countries to bypass requirements that significant portions of EV batteries be produced in North America.

The climate law, officially known as the Inflation Reduction Act, “is first and foremost an energy security bill,” Manchin said, adding that the EV tax credits were supposed “to grow domestic manufacturing and reduce our reliance on foreign supply chains for the critical minerals needed to produce EV batteries.″

Manchin’s bid to delay the tax credits surfaced as Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm and White House climate adviser Ali Zaidi visited the Washington, D.C., Auto Show on Wednesday to highlight the administration’s efforts to boost electric vehicles and related infrastructure.
