Attacking the right to legal counsel

Wall Street JournalThis time around, we received a very different message from our law firm. Having just secured a landmark decision vindicating our clients’ constitutional Second Amendment rights in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, we were presented with a stark choice—withdraw from representing them or withdraw from the firm. There was only one choice: We couldn’t abandon our clients simply because their positions are unpopular in some circles.

Just The NewsJohn Eastman, election attorney to former President Donald Trump, claimed Monday in a court filing that the FBI seized his phone.

Federal agents executed a search warrant last week while Eastman left a restaurant in New Mexico, he wrote in the motion, which CNN obtained. The attorney asked to see the warrant, but the officer refused and seized his iPhone Pro 12, he said.

Eastman "was forced to provide biometric data to open said phone" and "was not provided a copy of the warrant until after his phone was seized," the attorney said in the U.S. District Court of New Mexico filing.

I remember when Democrats gave terrorists legal counsel, but apparently that's not a thing for Republicans.
