Former Acting AG Jeffrey Rosen Says Deputy Tried to Subvert 2020 Election Results

HeadlineAug 09, 2021

Former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen has testified that one of his deputies tried to help Donald Trump subvert the results of the 2020 election in the waning days of his presidency. That’s according to The New York Times, which reports Rosen testified to Justice Department and Senate investigators over the weekend that his deputy, Jeffrey Clark, pressured Justice Department officials to publicly assert false claims about election fraud in order to cast doubt on the Electoral College results. Clark’s promotion of conspiracy theories was reportedly welcomed by Trump, who considered replacing Rosen with Clark as acting attorney general.
