Major financial institutions are waging this awful war against a Trump attorney

Apr 22, 2024

The Left is weaponizing every institution they control against Donald Trump’s supporters.

The necessities of modern life are now being denied because of political targeting.

And major financial institutions are waging this awful war against a Trump attorney.

John Eastman served as one of former President Donald Trump’s attorneys after the last election.

A former legal scholar, the Left has tried to destroy him for his work in the aftermath of the contentious election. 

California is trying to disbar him, and he’s one of Trump’s co-defendants in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ criminal case.

Now he’s having his bank accounts systematically targeted for closure. 

Trump attorney having his bank accounts shut down 

Eastman told the Daily Caller that Bank of America and USAA shut down his bank accounts within months of each other.

The former Trump attorney said that he had moved his banking from Bank of America to USAA because of the company’s “wokeness.”

USAA bills itself as a financial institution that looks out for members of the military and their families.

Bank of America told him in an October of 2023 letter that his accounts with the bank would be closed out.

That November, USAA reached out to him to let him know that his bank accounts would be shut down.

“And then two months later, we get a similar letter from USAA saying that they’ve decided that they’re going to close your account and they did like three weeks later,” Eastman told the Daily Caller. “And so that was where all of our automatic payments were coming out of, all our automatic deposits. So it was a real pain to shift everything. We had to get a new bank account opened and shift everything over.”

USAA’s decision was weeks after a California judge issued a preliminary ruling that he violated state legal ethics rules for his role in helping Trump after the 2020 election.

The company told Eastman in a letter that it was terminating its relationship with him under its deposit agreement.

“We may close your account for any reason without advance notice. We may require you to give us a minimum of seven (7) calendar days advance written notice when you intend to close your account by withdrawing your funds,”  USAA’s deposit agreement states.

Banks provide no explanation for their actions 

Eastman reached out to USAA and Bank of America about the closures, but the banks informed him that they don’t explain their decisions.

The former Trump attorney became a victim of the growing trend of de-banking – where financial institutions shut down accounts for political reasons.

He said that he’s virtually certain these banks closed his accounts for political reasons.

“I’m 99.9% confident,” Eastman explained. “What I don’t know is whether they didn’t want to do business with me, or whether they didn’t want to continue to be hassled by federal regulators for doing business with me. I don’t know which of those two it is, either one of them is rather despicable.”

Punishing customers for their political beliefs is a violation of state and federal laws.

Weaponizing the financial system against conservatives is the latest alarming trend in the Left’s push to destroy their political opponents.
