A Georgia grand jury is investigating interference in the 2020 election by John Eastman, the lawyer who developed former President Donald Trump’s strategy to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory.
Mr. Kise is expected to make his debut at a hearing scheduled for Thursday by Judge Cannon. An individual who has knowledge of the matter says, Mr. Kise has a deal to join Mr. Trump’s team and will leave Foley & Lardner to do so. In the past, he has successfully argued cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. As a longtime GOP activist, he served on the transition teams of former Republican Gov. Rick Scott and current GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.
