Jan. 6 committee issues a scathing subpoena to a Trump official implicated in plot to overturn the election
The House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack has just issued a scathing subpoena to Jeffrey Clark, a former Trump Justice Dept. official accused of scheming with the then-president to overturn the results of the presidential election.
"The Select Committee's investigation has revealed credible evidence that you attempted to involve the Department of Justice in efforts to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power," the subpoena reads. "As detailed in a report issued by the Senate Judiciary Committee, you proposed that the Department send a letter to state legislators in Georgia and other states suggesting that they delay certification of their election results and hold a press conference announcing that the Department was investigating allegations of voter fraud."
"The report further indicates that you engaged in unauthorized investigation of allegations of voter fraud and failed to abide by the Department's policy on contacts with the White House."
