The law professor who spoke at President Donald Trump‘s January 6 rally in front of the White House before rioters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol will not be returning to his teaching job at Chapman University, The Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.

Due to the comments Dr. John Eastman made at the “Save America” rally, university president Daniele Struppa announced Wednesday morning that Dr. John Eastman would not be coming back to his job. Eastman had taught at the Southern Californian institution for more than two decades and formerly served as the Fowler School of Law’s dean.

“After discussions over the course of the last week, Dr. John Eastman and Chapman University have reached an agreement pursuant to which he will retire from Chapman, effective immediately,” Struppa’s statement reads. “Dr. Eastman’s departure closes this challenging chapter for Chapman and provides the most immediate and certain path forward for both the Chapman community and Dr. Eastman. Chapman and Dr. Eastman have agreed not to engage in legal actions of any kind, including any claim of defamation that may currently exist, as both parties move forward.”

Also on Wednesday, in his own statement published on the website of the conservative Claremont Institute, Eastman announced “with mixed feelings” his retirement from Chapman.

He stated that his retirement was partially due to “some of my ‘colleagues’ on the campus or to the few members of the Board of Trustees who have published false, defamatory statements about me without even the courtesy of contacting me beforehand to discuss.”

Furthermore, Eastman was angered by a “defamatory” letter signed by about 160 university faculty members who accused him of “participation” in the deadly Capitol riot. Speaking at the rally beside Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, Eastman promoted allegations of election fraud.

He denied the claim that he “participated in a riot that incited” violence at the Capitol, arguing it was untrue.

“I participated in a peaceful rally of nearly ½ million people, two miles away from the violence that occurred at the capital and which began even before the speeches were finished,” Eastman said.

Moreover, the former law professor took the opportunity to double down on a series of election fraud claims that he promoted at the rally, notably defending his claims of “secret folders” in the voting machines that can allegedly add extraneous votes to a candidate’s vote total.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
