A Republican U.S. congressman played a role in ex-President Donald Trump's efforts to oust the top Justice Department official and replace him with a loyalist willing to support efforts to overturn his election defeat, the New York Times reported on Sunday.
On Saturday, Illinois senator Richard Durbin, who is the incoming chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told the DOJ in a letter that he was investigating alleged efforts by the former president and Clark to use the government department to further Trump's plan to overthrow the results of the 2020 election. The school, of course, is named after Joe Biden, the man whose presidency the Timesreport claims Trump wanted Clark to derail. Clark argued in favor of his plan - which included getting rid of Rosen - and Rosen argued against his own removal.
Trump was frustrated with Rosen's refusal to pursue his baseless allegations of election fraud.
Rosen refused, telling Trump that such a move would be inconsistent with the department's lack of findings of voter fraud, the paper reported.
The report also added that Perry and Clark hatched a plan to have the justice department send a letter to Georgia state lawmakers falsely claiming that the department was investigating the state for voter fraud that could overturn Biden's win.
Clark told the Times that their account had inaccuracies but did not give specifics. "All my official communications were consistent with law".
Schumer, a Democrat representing NY, said on Twitter that the plan was "unconscionable" and called for the Justice Department Inspector General to "launch an investigation into this attempted sedition".
The weekend before Trump's term ended, the president met with Clark, and after the meeting, Clark told Rosen of Trump's intent to remove him.
Ultimately, senior Department of Justice officials on a conference call agreed that if Rosen was replaced, they would all resign.
The decision to reverse the "plot" allegedly came only after Rosen and Clark filed their opposing cases with him in a White House meeting.
Donald Trump asked Attorney General Bill Barr and top DOJ officials to file a lawsuit at the US Supreme Court to over turn the election in his last weeks in office, but the officials refused, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The notion of department pandemonium, congressional investigations and blowback from fellow Republicans seemed to resonate with Trump, who after almost three hours chose to allow Rosen to stay and determined that Clark's plan would not work, according to the Times.
