Donald Trump is considering a ministry lawyer to replace Justice Minister Jeffrey Rosen, forcing Georgian officials to manipulate election results in that state, U.S. newspapers reported Friday evening.
According to New York TimesTrump abandoned his plan only when he learned that Justice Department officials would resign more if his plan was followed.
This information, it also reported Washington Post, Comes two weeks before the impeachment trial of Donald Trump in the Senate. When Congress-elected delegates confirmed the victory of his Democratic rival Joe Biden in the presidential election, he allegedly encouraged his supporters to attack Capitol on January 6th.
Trump lost to Georgia in the November presidential election at the hands of Biden, who said in the vote that his rigging was unfounded.
U.S. According to newspapers, Trump was further frustrated by Rosen’s refusal to use the Department of Justice’s authority to interfere with the vote count.
Rosen is said to have drawn up a plan with Justice Department attorney Jeffrey Clark, who has backed claims that his election victory was stolen to give him a job.
But, in a three-hour test involving three people, Trump is said to have finally backed down, resigning heavily from the Justice Department, the New York Times wrote.
Clark denies plotting to oust Rosen
In the case of Trump, Rosen and the U.S. Department of Justice, they did not respond publicly to claims published in the press.
In early January, an audio-recording publication in which President Trump was heard asking a Georgia official to “find” votes to overturn the outcome of the presidential election in that state sent shock waves through Washington already.
