Opinion: Former Trump Attorney John Eastman Is Keeping a Low Profile in New Mexico

Daniella Cressman
"John Eastman, a lawyer who advised former President Donald Trump in his failed bid to overturn the 2020 presidential election results, is a registered New Mexico voter with a residence in one of the state’s most liberal enclaves." —Dan Boyd

Eastman has been a central figure in the U.S. House Committee's investigation into the January 6 insurrection, yet he did not answer any questions about his New Mexico residence that were poised by the Albuquerque Journal.

"State voting records show Eastman is a registered Republican who has cast ballots in every local and statewide New Mexico election since November 2018 – including casting an Election Day ballot in this year’s June 7 primary election. His residence in Santa Fe is in the capital city’s north side – not far from the state Governor’s Mansion. An individual who answered the intercom at Eastman’s gated house on Thursday afternoon said Eastman was not available. Attorneys for Eastman also did not respond to Journal questions about his New Mexico residence and his role in Trump’s post-election attempt to remain president. Eastman has been a central figure in the U.S. House Select Committee’s investigation into the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 of last year, which has revealed several New Mexico connections." —Dan Boyd

Eastman was heavily involved in building a case for ex-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results in 2020.

"Among other things, Eastman drafted a legal memo that sought to build a case for ex-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the results when electoral votes were to be certified on Jan. 6, 2021." —Dan Boyd
