New Evidence Re-Surfaces After Elections: Trump Pressed The Justice Department to Reverse the Election Results
Former US President Donald Trump has been urging the Justice Department to join his efforts to reverse the election loss he suffered in the final weeks of his presidency, which was based on charges of election fraud.
Top Secretariat officials, however, have declined to do so, according to documents disclosed today.
According to Voice of America, the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which sought records, disclosed details about the former president, his then-chief of staff Mark Meadows, and private lawyer Kurt Olsen’s attempts to pressure the Secretariat to act on Trump’s assertions.
“Those documents show that President Trump tried to abuse our country’s leading law enforcement agency in a brazen attempt to reverse the outcome of the election in which he was defeated,” said Committee Chairwoman Democrat Carolyn Maloney.
Trump’s attempts in the documents are separated from reports that the Justice Department, during Trump, secretly tried to obtain information on the telephone numbers of at least two Democratic members of Congress, which is why current Secretary of Justice Merrick Garland announced that he would strengthen the protection of the Secretariat. of political influence.
The Secretariat for Justice under the then Secretary William Barr, who left the position on December 23 last year, and his deputy Jeffrey Rosen, decided not to take action regarding the unproven allegations of election irregularities.
According to the emails, Meadows asked the secretariat officials to investigate the conspiracy theory that the American election data were changed in the facilities in Italy, and that the CIA was aware of that.

On January 1, Meadows sent Rosen a link to a video on YouTube detailing the unproven theory, and Rosen forwarded the email to his then-deputy, who replied “Pure Madness.”
The House committee’s materials also show that Trump exerted pressure on Rosen, who was then the Deputy Attorney General, to look into his charges of election fraud.
According to e-mails, Rosen refused to organize a meeting between secretariat officials and Trump’s personal lawyer Rudi Giuliani about his false claims that the elections were stolen.
“I refused and said that Giuliani or any of his ‘witnesses’ would not have special treatment and reiterated that I would not talk to Giuliani about these issues,” Rosen wrote to colleagues on January 1.
