The 1/6 committee gave Jeffrey Clark a little over two weeks to appear, testify and release his record.
The 1/6 committee subpoenas against Jeffrey Clark
About: the 1/6 Committee:
Chairman Bennie G. Thompson announced today that the Special Committee has issued a subpoena to Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official who was reportedly involved in efforts to overthrow the 2020 presidential election and disrupt the peaceful transfer of power. The subpoena requires Mr. Clark to provide testimony and records as part of the Special Committee’s investigation into the events of January 6th and the causes of the violence that day.
According to a report released last week by the Senate Judiciary Committee, there is credible evidence that Mr Clark was involved in efforts to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power while serving as a Justice Department official. Mr Clark proposed that a letter be sent to Georgia state lawmakers and others asking them to delay confirming the election results. He also recommended holding a press conference announcing that the Ministry is investigating allegations of electoral fraud, even though there is no evidence of such fraud. Both proposals were rejected by the department management because they had no factual basis and were incompatible with the institutional role of the department.
The report goes on to state that Mr. Clark failed to follow Departmental guidelines in his communications with the White House and that the former president was considering appointing Mr. Clark as acting attorney general.
The subpoena requires Mr. Clark to produce records and testify when giving evidence on October 29, 2021.
Clark is the first identified coup co-conspirator to be subpoenaed.
Clark will try to dodge the subpoena, but the nation will soon see how serious he is once Trump employees are prosecuted.
The 1/6 committee wastes no time.
Clark would take over the DOJ and work to overturn the election for Trump. The coup plan and the 1/6 attack are related, and Jeffrey Clark has information on both of them.
The committee is following the coup plotters, because every day the situation for Trump is getting worse.
