The House Select committee investigating Jan. 6 subpoenaed ex-Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark who promised to pursue former President Trump’s election fraud claims.
“The Select Committee needs to understand all the details about efforts inside the previous administration to delay the certification of the 2020 election and amplify misinformation about the election results,” said Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-MS). “We need to understand Mr. Clark’s role in these efforts at the Justice Department and learn who was involved across the administration.”
Clark was a prominent figure in a recent Senate report detailing Trump’s attempts to pressure the DOJ to help him overturn the 2020 election results.
Clark has an Oct. 29 deadline to produce records and testify.
