Feds Search Home of Former DOJ Official Allied to Trump Bid to Overturn Election


Federal agents conducted a search recently at the home of former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, who played a key role in former President Donald Trump’s efforts to get law enforcement officials to challenge Joe Biden’s election victory, reports the Washington Post. Several former senior Justice Department officials testified Thursday about a bizarre effort by Clark to volunteer himself and the Justice Department as advocates for Trump’s bogus claims of massive voter fraud during the election.

The search was carried out in conjunction with what appears to be a significant expansion of the Justice Department’s Jan. 6 investigation, now reaching far beyond the rioters who stormed the Capitol that day and exploring efforts by Trump and his supporters to try to undo Biden’s victories in a half-dozen key states like Georgia, Michigan and Arizona.
