Jeffrey Clark took a pounding today in the Jan. 6 hearings as one high ranking, Trump-appointed DOJ official after another testified as to his willingness to break the law and commit felonies if directed to by then President Trump. I m not sure when I have ever seen a criminal so thoroughly shamed by his professional colleagues on national TV. This guy will be facing charges. Bank on it.

If the DOJ investigation is looking into whether Jeffery Clark was involved in a conspiracy, this will not bode well for Donald Trump since he was really the only other person that Clark interacted with respect to trying to overturn the 2020 election.

- Clark took a pounding today

Just watched the rerun of the Hearing. Clark was Eastman's boy in the DOJ. He and Perry and a bunch of others have some 'splainin' to do.

Clark only took the 5th 125 times at his deposition, and as you can tell the DOJ leadership all volunteered to resign rather than sign on to the letter to the States lying about known corruption in the election which they have to do if Clark was AG.

I see a real dark cell in his future.

"Even with these unanswered questions, it's significant that federal investigators took such an overt step -- raiding Clark's home -- against one of the most prominent figures in Trump's post-elections schemes.

The committee was hoping to turn Clark into a household name Thursday, by eliciting testimony from top Justice Department officials about how he tried to abuse law enforcement powers to help Trump overturn the 2020 results in states that he lost.

With the raid, it looks like the committee got its wish."

Trump is a user and an abuser. Ya' just KNOW he's going to throw Clark under the bus.

Not that Clark didn't set himself up for it.

What are the chances he's going to squeal to the Committee on Trump, Eastman and Perry to save himself ~~ now that the FBI and the DOJ has him on their radar?

Coup:

'a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.'

"In the case of democratically empowered governments regime change by coup disrupts the peaceful transition of power." --Wikipedia

Was the peaceful transition of power disrupted on Jan 6?

Of course it was. When there is a disruption of power at my house that doesn't necessarily mean that lights will never come back on again.

Please stop trying to be cute with this. Trump's trash mob tried unsuccessfully to stop the VPOTUS and House of Representatives from performing a constitutional DUTY that is a requirement for the peaceful transition of power. And they clearly disrupted that process.

Or are you living under a rock?

Because impotent idiotic garland apparently couldnt tell that anything criminal had happened on 1/6 until waiting a year and half for congress to do an investigation for him.

As if there's going to be anything left to find after giving the fascists a year and a half to get rid of everything.

Democracy isn't electricity. Once you give it up it's gone.

Look at what repubs have been doing behind the scenes ever since 1/6. Rigging local systems to try and overthrow democracy AGAIN.

I agree with you. But pretending that there was no "disruption" on January 6 because our democracy barely held on is just Trumpcult b.s.

Thanks, MSGT, for a complete and concise description of what was attempted on Jan 6.

You know that, and I know that.
I was hoping maybe MSGT might be capable of knowing that.

Garland needed probable cause for the search warrant. Jeffery used legal delaying tactics to block access to his emails. He is a lawyer with money, so he can stall justice almost as long as Trump.
