Executive Summary

Clark; deposition scheduled for Oct. 29. Clark was at the center of one of Trump’s most complicated efforts to undermine the results of the 2020 election. Frustrated that the Justice Department wasn’t claiming that rampant fraud had occurred — since it hadn’t — Trump weighed firing the acting attorney general and replacing him with Clark, who had embraced Trump’s false claims about fraud. Ultimately, that didn’t happen.

Committee description:

According to a report released … by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, there is credible evidence that, while serving as an official at the Department of Justice, Mr. Clark was involved in efforts to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power. Mr. Clark proposed delivery of a letter to state legislators in Georgia and others encouraging to delay certification of election results. Moreover, he recommended holding a press conference announcing that the Department was investigating allegations of voter fraud despite the lack of evidence that such fraud was present. Both proposals were rejected by Department senior leadership for lacking a factual basis and being inconsistent with the Department’s institutional role.
