Jeffrey Clark

A former Trump administration official who pushed the Department of Justice to greenlight a letter falsely claiming the FBI found serious evidence of voter fraud in multiple states, has parted ways with his attorney just days before he is set to testify before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, Politico reports.

Citing two people with knowledge of the matter, Politico reported that former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark, who is scheduled to testify before the committee on Friday, has split with Robert Driscoll, a Washington attorney who was representing him.

As noted by politico, “Clark has drawn notoriety for his role in the final days of the Trump administration” for pushing other senior DOJ officials “to greenlight a letter falsely claiming the FBI found serious evidence of voter fraud in multiple states” despite no evidence of such fraud.

The site also reported that at one point, “Trump discussed firing his acting Attorney General Jeff Rosen and replacing him with Clark. When the rest of the department’s top leadership learned of the plan, they told Trump in a White House meeting that they would all quit if the president followed through on it.”
