Welcome to life after embracing Trump, Mr. Eastman. You thought he was the ticket to riches and power. Rolled the dice and lost, now take your rewards.

Interesting factoid; research has shown it is nearly impossible to overdose on schadenfreude. And how I love watching this arrogant prick, who believes he was doing something noble, who thinks he can talk his way out of anything, who desperately wants to get out of any consequences whatsoever for his misadventure, get his. My cup runneth over this morning.

If you don’t have time to get disbarred because you’re busy getting arrested, you might’ve made some questionable choices along the way.

Looking at you, John Eastman.

Eastman surrendered this morning. So what’s the problem of him being in California on Wednesday? Is he walking?

Excerpts:

John Eastman, the disgraced attorney and author of the so-called “coup memo” that outlined a plan to overturn election results in Georgia, surrendered at the same jail shortly after Hall on Tuesday morning.

In a statement, Eastman said he was surrendering “to an indictment that should never have been brought.”

Jailhouse lawyer. And Prison reformer once he gets out. Seems like all prison reformers were law and order conservatives that did time in the tank.

Perfect way to rule in Eastman’s favor: 2 day delay to be arraigned. That means he keeps his law license for a whole 2 days longer prior to losing it.

Prisons are teeming with people that share that same thought.

A backup to Gladys Knight? Maybe.

He’s leaving (leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia (leaving on a midnight train)
Hmm, yeah
Said he’s going back (going back to find)
To a simpler place and time (and when he takes that ride)
Oh yes, he is (guess who’s gonna sit right by his side)
