Trump illegally pressured DOJ officers to file a lawsuit with the Supreme Court docket nullifying the election and declaring a particular election in six states.
The Home Oversight Committee obtained the paperwork and located, “Paperwork obtained by the Committee in response to this letter present that in December 2020 and early January 2021, President Trump, his Chief of Employees, and out of doors allies repeatedly put stress on senior DOJ officers to problem the outcomes of the presidential election and advance unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud, with the obvious objective of preserving President Trump in energy regardless of dropping the 2020 election.”
Right here is a few of what Trump did:
On December 29, 2020, President Trump’s White Home Assistant emailed Mr. Rosen, Mr. Donoghue, and Appearing Solicitor Common Jeffrey Wall, attaching a draft authorized temporary to file within the Supreme Court docket. She wrote, “The President requested me to ship the hooked up draft doc on your assessment,” and offered a cellphone quantity so they may contact the President immediately.
The draft 54-page grievance demanded that the Supreme Court docket “declare that the Electoral Faculty votes forged” in six states that President Trump misplaced “can’t be counted,” and requested that the Court docket order a “particular election” for president in these states.
Trump actually thought that he might get the Supreme Court docket to nullify the election and maintain a brand new election within the six swing states that he misplaced. Trump didn’t need a new nationwide election. He simply wished a brand new election in locations like Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
That is the extent of corruption and criminality that Trump injected into the DOJ. It’s what AG Merrick Garland should clear up.
Trump’s DOJ officers are already staring down the barrel at a number of investigations into their surveillance of Democrats, and it simply received a complete lot worse for Trump and the members of his administration who tried to overturn the election.
