The Fulton County Sheriff’s office have released the mugshot of John Eastman, one of Donald Trump’s alleged co-conspirators in the Georgia election interference case, after the lawyer handed himself in.
Eastman, who is alleged to have orchestrated the so-called fake elector plot which aimed to keep Trump in power after he lost the last election, surrendered to authorities for arrest in Georgia on Tuesday.
Eastman has been charged with several offenses under Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ expansive probe, including conspiracy to commit forgery, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings and violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.
In a statement after his arrest, Eastman denied all the allegations against him in the “indictment that should never have been brought.”
“I am confident that, when the law is faithfully applied in this proceeding, all of my co-defendants and I will be fully vindicated,” Eastman added.
