Trump DOJ lackey who tried to steal election should be 'called up today on charges': Ex-senator

A shocking letter released this week revealed that an official from former President Donald Trump's Justice Department tried to push the department to directly intervene to overturn the election results in Georgia.

The official, Jeffrey Clark, was stopped by others in the DOJ but the country came shockingly close to an official coup. If Donald Trump had fired the acting DOJ chief, as he attempted, and appointed Clark, the plan could easily have been put in motion to steal the 2020 election.

'We found a draft he couldn’t dodge': Trump's failed legal strategy on his taxes roasted by legal expert

Last week the Justice Department ordered the IRS to hand over former President Donald Trump's taxes to Congress.

There has been an extensive legal battle that went all the way to the Supreme Court, where the justices punted back to the lower courts to regulate and those lower courts said that Trump had to hand them over. He's still fighting it, but most legal experts say it isn't likely to work.

Mo Brooks tries to weasel out of insurrection lawsuit by telling judge he’s ‘never smoked tobacco’ or cheated

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is being sued by Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) for his role in allegedly inciting the January 6 insurrection. Brooks infamously evaded being served by going to great lengths, resulting in forcing the process server to hand the papers to his wife at their home.

Brooks on January 6 spoke at Trump's MAGA rally and told the estimated 12,000 attendees, "Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass." But Brooks was also the first member of Congress to announce he would vote to overturn the election. And in December Politico reported Brooks was "spearheading the long-shot push to overturn the election results in Congress," and noted he had organized a "trio of White House meetings, which lasted over three hours and included roughly a dozen lawmakers."
