NextImg:John Eastman calls evidence in Georgia case 'weak' and predicts defendants will be 'vindicated' at trial

John Eastman, one of the defendants in the wide-ranging Georgia RICO case, criticized the case Friday. He claimed the evidence was "weak" and predicted all defendants would be vindicated at their trials.

Eastman, who previously served as an attorney for former President Donald Trump, has been indicted by a grand jury in an alleged scheme to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. Prosecutors allege Eastman was a central figure in the scheme, which included setting up a fraudulent slate of electoral votes for the state.

“I think if we get a fair trial in Fulton County, whether that’s in state court or federal court, I’m confident that we’ll be fully vindicated,” Eastman told Fox News on Friday. “Not just me, but all the defendants.”

The attorney accused the case of being weak in evidence and high in politics, stating the legal aspect was just "5%" of the fight, while politics was the rest. Eastman also claimed a broad racketeering case against a former president was setting a "very dangerous" precedent.

“Our federal criminal code and our state criminal code have gotten so expansive and so vague that any one of us can be charged by a creative prosecutor with three felonies a day,” Eastman said.

Eastman defended his actions in Georgia, claiming he had a right to legally question the results of the 2020 presidential election. Eastman added that he would do it again if he could.

“The stakes are very high. If we don’t have fair elections, if we don’t have a rule of law in how those elections are conducted, then one of the most basic premises, the foundation stones of our country, is gone,” Eastman said.

The trial date for at least one defendant in the case has been set for Oct. 23, but the dates for key figures such as Rudy Giuliani, Trump, and Eastman have not been announced. However, prosecutors are hoping the case will go to trial in the spring of 2024.
