Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.

Trump Plotted to Oust Acting AG, Use DOJ to Force Georgia to Overturn Election Results

HeadlineJan 25, 2021

The New York Times is reporting former President Trump plotted with Justice Department lawyer Jeffrey Clark to oust then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen in order to install Clark instead, a loyalist who would help coerce Georgia officials into overturning the state’s election results. Rosen reportedly had to argue against his own removal with Clark, before Trump, in a scenario akin to “The Apprentice.” Trump ultimately dropped the plan after Justice Department officials unanimously vowed to quit if Rosen was fired.

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal reports Trump pushed the Justice Department to directly ask the Supreme Court to invalidate Biden’s victory.
