Trump and Justice Dept. Lawyer Said to Have Plotted to Oust Acting Attorney General

Trying to find another avenue to push his baseless election claims, Donald Trump considered installing a loyalist, and had the men make their cases to him.

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department’s top leaders listened in stunned silence this month: One of their peers, they were told, had devised a plan with President Donald J. Trump to oust Jeffrey A. Rosen as acting attorney general and wield the department’s power to force Georgia state lawmakers to overturn its presidential election results.

The unassuming lawyer who worked on the plan, Jeffrey Clark, had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results and to bolster Mr. Trump’s continuing legal battles and the pressure on Georgia politicians. Because Mr. Rosen had refused the president’s entreaties to carry out those plans, Mr. Trump was about to decide whether to fire Mr. Rosen and replace him with Mr. Clark.

The department officials, convened on a conference call, then asked each other: What will you do if Mr. Rosen is dismissed?

The answer was unanimous. They would resign.

Much more from The New York Times...


This certainly adds more weight against Trump in his Senate impeachment trial. What do you think?

Trump’s criminal efforts to lawlessly overturn the Georgia election results should have been a second Article of impeachment.

Thankfully Trump and his corrupt, criminal ‘administration’ is gone.

If true. Yes. Like the impeachment trial itself (that must be carried out), we shall see.

Not really. There is only one article of impeachment, for inciting a riot. Election tampering, while another serious charge, isn't part of it.

Georgia is mentioned in the Article of impeachment.

I think we've finally found that serious case of "election fraud" Trump has been talking about.

Conspiracy is, and covers this.

What I think is that if you believe an American President can be charged with what someone thinks he might have considered you are in serious need of help.

Unfortunately.

If one wishes to be critical of the House’s second impeachment of Trump, it’s that they failed to draft a second Article addressing Trump’s efforts to coerce Georgia election officials to join Trump in a criminal conspiracy to overturn that state’s lawful election results to Trump’s benefit.

That can be brought separately as a criminal indictment though. I think what the House was trying to do was KISS and get it voted on with all deliberate speed.

So you also think a private citizen can be impeached by Congress? Prove it. Both attempts to impeach President Trump failed miserably. Face it. Move on.
