A report from the Senate Judiciary Committee has provided the most in-depth look into how the Donald Trump, Mark Meadows and other Trump allies with links to the Jan 6 rally and insurrection pressured DOJ officials to endorse the false claims that the election was stolen and to assist in Trump's effort to overturn the election results. The report also covers Jeffrey Clark who circulated a "proof of concept letter that falsely stated the DOJ had evidence of election irregularities and urged the Georgia legislature to appoint a new slate of electors. The letter, if met with success, would be replicated for additional states. In addition, the report details how Trump forced the resignation of BJay Pak after he refused to validate false election claims and how Trump was stopped from replacing acting AG Rosen with Clark when top assistant AG's threatened to resign if Trump did so.
