Committee dealing with Trump supporters
President Trump at that time used every means to oppose his removal from office. He is said to have received support from the Ministry of Justice. The Capitol Attack Investigation Commission has some questions for a former agency employee.
The Capitol Attack Commission has requested documents from a former Justice Department official. “We need to understand Mr. Clark’s role in this Department of Justice effort and who has been involved across the board,” the House committee said.
A committee in the US House of Representatives will investigate the background to the January 6 attack on the Capitol. Supporters of Donald Trump have stormed the US Capitol in Washington after the president-elect incited them in a speech.
The Commission of Inquiry is also asking Clark to testify. A report from the Senate Judiciary Committee revealed how Trump tried to pressure the Justice Department after the election. The commission relies on this report.
So Clark proposed a letter calling on lawmakers in the US to delay confirmation of election results. In addition, it should be announced at a press conference that the ministry is investigating allegations of election fraud. Both proposals were rejected. According to reports, then-acting US Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen is now being questioned by the commission. “I can’t vouch for that,” panel member Adam Schiff said on CNN.
Trump tried to obstruct the commission’s investigations and insisted on so-called executive privilege. This is one of the president’s powers to withhold certain information from Congress or the courts. US President Joe Biden refused to accept the first Trump-era White House records requested by the commission.
