  • Trump 'wanted to fire his AG and replace him with one who would overturn the election in Georgia'

Clark, the Times reported, was sympathetic to Trump's "Stop the Steal" campaign, and he met with Perry to discuss a plan to have the Justice Department send Georgia a letter disclosing the department would be investigating the election results.

Clark noted that last month he was the lead signatory on an application from the Justice Department requesting a federal judge to dismiss a complaint that aimed to persuade Vice President Mike Pence to reverse the election results.

Clark reportedly said that this account contained inaccuracies but did not specify which exactly, adding that because of "the strictures of legal privilege", he could not disclose any discussions with Trump or lawyers of the Justice Department. Clark has denied being involved with a plan to get rid of Rosen.

'Senior Justice Department lawyers, not uncommonly, provide legal advice to the White House as part of our duties.

But Mr. Trump continued to press Mr. Rosen after the meeting - in phone calls and in person.

Trump, Rosen and the US Justice Department have not publicly responded to the allegations.

The New York Times reported late Friday that Trump considered firing acting Atty. "All my official communications were consistent with law".

Trump declined to comment to the Times.

On Saturday, Schumer called for the DOJ's inspector general to investigate "attempted sedition" by attorney Clark. He said in a tweet that it was "unconscionable a Trump Justice Department leader would conspire to subvert the people's will".

U.S. President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, left, leave after attemding session at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020.

Clark has said that some aspects of the report on the situation -- based on interviews with four other DOJ officials - are incorrect, according to the New York Times.

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 New York Times said former U.S. president Trump only decided against the move when told that all remaining top officials at the Justice Department would resign en masse if the plan went ahead.

"While serving as Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Division, Clark handled the following types of cases, per the bio: "(1) national policies including military actions, counterterrorism efforts, law enforcement initiatives, fraud on the Treasury, and entitlement programs, (2) litigation so massive and span so many years that they would overwhelm the resources and infrastructure of any individual field office, (3) litigation filed in national or foreign courts; (4) cases crossing multiple jurisdiction; and (5) cases to remove illegal aliens".
