DOJ : Will Jeffrey Clark resign before he is fired ?

From his wiki bio, worked for Bush 2001-2005 and opposed regulation of greenhouse gases.

So he'd be no loss.

From Wikipedia

Attempts to overturn results of 2020 presidential election
Main article: Attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election
Unsatisfied that the Justice Deptartment disagreed with his charges of voter fraud in the 2020 election, in January 2021 President Trump floated a plan to replace the acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen with Clark. Trump expected Clark would then reverse the decisions of previous Attorneys General, open an investigation, and pressure Georgia election officials to void Biden's win in that state.

Rosen and his predecessor William Barr had previously resisted pressure from Trump to interfere. Clark allegedly told Rosen and other top Justice Department officials that the Department should announce it was investigating serious election fraud issues; Rosen and his deputy Richard Donoghue rejected the suggestion, as the Department had previously determined and announced that there was no significant fraud.[13] Both men were unaware that Clark had met with Trump, until Clark later told Rosen that Trump intended to appoint him to replace Rosen. The Department’s remaining senior leaders including Rosen, Donoghue, and head of the OLC Steven Engel agreed they would all resign if Rosen was removed. After Rosen and Clark presented their arguments to Trump in a White House meeting, the president backed away from the plan.[4][14]

Clark denied that he had plotted to replace Rosen or to recommend any action based on inaccurate material he read on the internet. He added that he could not discuss any conversations he had with Trump or with Justice Department lawyers because of legal privilege. He noted that in December he had been the lead signatory on the Justice Department’s letter opposing a claim that Vice President Mike Pence had the power to reject electoral votes for Biden when Congress met to certify the result.

5. Definitely agree. I found some more stuff on him via Ted Lieu




This article shows:

-Jeffrey Clark is a bad person.

-The former President became increasingly desperate as his attempts to overturn the election failed.

-We cannot let any president now or in the future believe that they can act with impunity in order to hold onto power.

⁩ with a scoop on efforts by a top DOJ official, prodded by a PA lawmaker, to work secretly with the president to plot to fire Rosen and use the DOJ to impact the election in GA.

12. This asshole resigned Jan 14

This asshole is not longer at the DOJ https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/ex-doj-official-called-radioactive-after-alleged-election-plot/ar-BB1d24NK?li=BBnb7Kz

Clark resigned from the Justice Department Jan. 14, less than a week before the end of Trump’s presidency, and didn’t have a new job lined up at the time. One legal industry consultant said he’d be “radioactive” on the job market now.

This asshole will have a hard time finding a job at a big law firm
