The University of Colorado Boulder understands that a visiting faculty member has served as President Trump’s counsel in election matters, and today continued to make baseless and unfounded statements regarding the 2020 presidential election at an event in Washington, D.C. Professor Eastman’s representation of President Trump and his appearance at a political rally is personal conduct. Professor Eastman does not act in any legal capacity to represent CU Boulder’s interests. Professor Eastman’s representation of a client and political activities are not within the course and scope of his duties at CU Boulder, and the campus does not exercise any oversight over them. His statements today do not in any sense reflect CU Boulder’s position.
