Judge rules against Trump lawyer John Eastman in dispute with Jan. 6 investigatorsA federal judge on Wednesday handed an incremental victory to the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection in a case involving California attorney John Eastman.
Eastman, who advised former President Trump on efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, has been fighting to prevent the committee from seeing more than 100 emails involving him.
The judge ruled against Eastman for now, saying the court would review the documents to determine which can be turned over to the panel.
Eastman has emerged as a central figure in the committee's investigation into Trump's efforts to subvert the election results.
