On Saturday, January 20, 2024, The Messenger reported that the Bar Association in Washington, D.C., filed disciplinary charges against three lawyers who aided former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
According to investigators with the Washington D.C. Bar, attorneys Juli Haller, Lawrence Joseph, and Brandon Johnson knowingly made false representations in several lawsuits challenging the presidential election outcome. Haller was involved in Sidney Powell’s “Kraken” lawsuits seeking to undo Joe Biden’s victories in key states.
Joseph participated in a case attempting to force Vice President Mike Pence to manipulate the electoral college results in Trump’s favor. Both Haller and Johnson filed claims in court that contained blatantly incorrect allegations of voting fraud. If found responsible, the three lawyers could face penalties from a reprimand to complete disbarment as decided by a committee of the legal organization.
