DOJ searches home of former official who helped alleged pro-Trump ‘coup’

The activity came just before the congressional selection committee on January 6 was set to begin a public hearing expected to scrutinize Clark and other allies for the former president. That hearing was originally scheduled for June 15, but was postponed. Selected panel members, including rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Attributed the delay to challenges involved in producing videos for it and other sessions.

Former DOJ officials, including Trump’s acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and his deputy Richard Donoghue, have previously testified that Trump tried to install Clark on top of the DOJ during the last chaotic days of his administration as part of an attempt on using the department to legitimize his false allegations of election fraud.

Vought tweeted that the raid on Clark’s house was “[a]because Jeff found it appropriate to investigate voter fraud. This is not America, folks. “He also wrote that his organization stands with Clark and that the raid is part of a” new era of criminalizing politics “in the United States.

Clark, now a senior fellow in the group where Vought serves as president, headed the DOJ’s environment and natural resources department for much of the Trump administration. ABC News reported first that federal agents searched Clark’s home in Lorton, Va. Wednesday morning.
