Jeffrey Clark

Federal law enforcement officials have raided the Virginia home of former top Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, who pushed to have the department formally declare that the results of the 2020 election were illegitimate in an effort to keep Donald Trump in power, Politico reports.

According to Russ Vought, who served as former President Donald Trump’s White House budget director and now works with Clark at the Center for Renewing America, “more than a dozen DOJ law enforcement officials searched Jeff Clark’s house in a pre dawn raid, put him in the streets in his pjs, and took his electronic devices.”

The raid comes just one day before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots was due to highlight his role in the attempt to overturn the election.

Former DOJ officials, including Trump’s acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and his deputy Richard Donoghue, have previously told the House Select Committee that Clark lobbied to have Trump appoint him as acting AG, after which he would send a letter to Georgia urging them to rescind certification of the 2020 election.
