But according to former Trump administration officials, the replacement plan failed after DOJ top officials came to know about the alleged plot and threatened to resign. Gen. Jeffrey Rosen and replacing him with another DOJ lawyer, Jeffrey Clark, who was prepared to back Trump's efforts to overturn the election.

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.

Greg Friel, the lawyer just named to oversee the Justice Department's civil rights division on a temporary basis, issued a directive Friday revoking a 22-page memorandum a Trump appointee released earlier this week taking a cramped view of a major Supreme Court decision a year ago that longstanding federal law protects LGBTQ individuals from discrimination at work.

In a statement to the New York Times, Clark declined comment on his relationship with Perry, and denied trying to oust Rosen, saying he had participated in "a candid discussion of options and pros and cons with the president".

"Senior Justice Department lawyers, not uncommonly, provide legal advice to the White House as part of our duties". In the meeting, Rosen and Clark each made their case.

"Mr. Trump seemed somewhat swayed by the idea that firing Mr. Rosen would trigger not only chaos at the Justice Department, but also congressional investigations and possibly recriminations from other Republicans and distract attention from his efforts to overturn the election results".

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

Clark, who had become the acting head of the civil division in September, was quickly embraced by Trump after their meeting, per the paper.

In that New York Times report that published Saturday, Perry was identified as the person who introduced Trump to a senior U.S. Department of Justice attorney who was open to Trump's unproven claims of election fraud and, according to the Times reporting, might have been interested in providing a route around more senior leaders who had rejected them.

Josh Shapiro, Pennsylvania Attorney General, said in a tweet, "Representative Perry ought to familiarize himself with Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of our Constitution".
