Former Attorney General officials, who were considered the Attorney General in the last few weeks of President Donald Trump, had their homes searched by federal officials, the New York Times and CNN reported Thursday.
Jeffrey Clark, who was promoted to Assistant Attorney, searched his residence on Wednesday as part of an investigation by the Justice Department in an attempt to overturn the 2020 election results.
A DOJ spokesman told CNN that “there was law enforcement activity near Clark’s house,” but did not identify their involvement.
The report was issued hours before former deputy attorney Jeffrey Rosen testified to the House Committee on January 6.
Rosen previously testified to the Senate committee that Clark was being considered for the role of acting for AG. Rosen said Clark had talked with Trump about his efforts to revoke the outcome of the 2020 elections. Rosen was Trump’s last Attorney General and played that role less than a month after William Barr left the Justice Department.
Rosen said he did not want to use the Justice Department on behalf of Trump to fight the 2020 election award.
