Statement on John Eastman August 31 Appearance Before Fulton County Special Grand Jury

In his appearance before the Fulton County Special Grand Jury, we advised our client John Eastman to assert attorney client privilege and the constitutional right to remain silent where appropriate. Out of respect for grand jury secrecy we will not disclose the substance of the questions or testimony.  We wish to thank the grand jurors for their service.

By all indications, the District Attorney’s Office has set itself on an unprecedented path of criminalizing controversial or disfavored legal theories, possibly in hopes that the federal government will follow its lead.  Criminalization of unpopular legal theories is against every American tradition and would have ended the careers of John Adams, Ruth Ginsburg, Thurgood Marshall and many other now-celebrated American lawyers.  We ask all interested observers of any political persuasion to join us in decrying this troubling development.

Charles Burnham, Esq.
