The walls are closing in on Donald Trump and his inner circle of co-conspirators.
Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade claimed that former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark should be very concerned with being indicted for criminal conspiracy based upon a letter he wrote at Donald Trump’s request that sought to overturn the 2020 Presidential vote count in Georgia among other states.
McQuade was referring to new evidence regarding Trump’s attempts to negate and recount the legitimate results revealed in a bombshell report by the Washington Post containing damning evidence that Clark knowingly was participating in a criminal enterprise.
Former AG Jeffrey Rosen testified before a Senate committee for seven hours behind closed doors on Saturday, where he is presumed to have discussed how he repeatedly rebuffed Trump’s efforts to cast doubt on the election results in the final days of the administration. Rosen presented evidence that has not yet been made public, further damning Trump’s remaining supporters in Congress. Last week, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released notes of Trump’s conversations with Rosen, memorialized by a top aide to the former acting attorney general, showing how the former president pressured the Justice Department.
📌Jeffrey Rosen was acting AG when Trump was trying to overthrow our govt.
📌What Rosen told a Senate panel Saturday elicited a member to say this: "(I was) struck by how close the country came to total catastrophe.”

Rosen’s testimony will be vital in connection with Clark’s, because Clark was in the room where it happened as Rosen’s Deputy AG. But where Rosen refused to help Trump commit election fraud, Trump did find a willing participant in the assistant attorney general for the Civil Division, Jeffrey Clark, and the public reporting is that Clark met privately with President Trump; completely forbidden under the department policies. communications are to be done in a formal way.”
Former acting AG Rosen is spilling the tea and sharing documents with DOJ and Congress about Trump’s efforts to pressure him regarding election fraud. Better late than never, but he should have come forward before Trump’s second impeachment trial. https://t.co/HdOMMNfB2H

Speaking with host Yasmin Vossoughian on Sunday, McQuade referenced how far Trump was willing to go to sabotage not just the election, but the country itself. “This is so far out of the lane of the Justice Department — providing legal advice to states about how they could engineer a different result in their state,” McQuade said of the phone calls they made to states like Georgia and Arizona.
