Current investigations into the January 6 insurrection are exposing the support Trump was garnering within the Justice Department. A recent New York Times article “detailed efforts of Jeffrey Clark, the acting head of the Justice Department’s civil division, to pressure top leaders to falsely and publicly assert that ongoing voter fraud investigations cast doubt on the Electoral College’s results. That led Mr. Trump to consider removing Mr. Rosen and installing Mr. Clark at the top of the department to carry out that plan. “
This New York Times report is evidence of Trump’s pattern of pressuring Justice Department professionals and state officials to 1) falsely claim the elections were fraudulent or 2) ask officials to manipulate the vote count. or encourage false counts to manipulate. ballots. The only electoral theft taking place is that of Donald Trump and his representatives, and these testimonies from Congress and the Department of Justice are focusing on indisputable evidence. Time is ticking on whether Jeffrey Clark will be charged with a crime. Mr. Rosen has reported that he learned from other Justice Department officials that Clark repeatedly asked them to make false public statements “stating that ongoing investigations into voter fraud were calling into question the validity of the Electoral College.” Trump was so excited by Clark’s support for his plan to subvert the election results that he wanted to install the corrupt sycophantic to head the Justice Department. Fortunately, some patriotic Republicans remained more loyal to democracy than Trump and were able to convince him not to fire Rosen.
Evidence of Trump’s efforts to steal the election is mounting, led by Jeffrey Rosen’s cooperation with the Justice Department and Congress. The investigation into the January 6 insurrection has triggered a tax-style investigation into Trump and his inner circles, including members of Congress. The actions Trump was taking after the election to question the results have raised curiosity about the collaboration of members of Congress. The Jan.6 Select Committee plans to call members who were with Trump days before and on the day of the insurrection to testify. There is widespread curiosity among committee members about who was with Trump while watching the insurrection on television. They are seeking information about Trump’s behavior that day and why it took him hours to make a statement for the rioters to go home.
Most disturbingly, Trump continues to escape justice despite his flagrant violation of the law. However, investigations into election interference appear to be moving rapidly to gather evidence before Trump panics and resumes his weekly pattern of obstruction of justice. Anyone who continues to support Trump might well admit that they are counting on Trump and the Republicans to bring down democracy and cheat their way to autocratic power. However, they must realize that Trump’s ideology for America to become authoritarian leadership would apply should a Democrat become president. What does the gun ban and open borders sound like? Supporters of candidates who are in favor of a one-party system must realize that the form of government completely ignores the wants, needs, and values of half the rest of the country. Those who resist Trump know what that feels like. That is why millions of Americans were proud and hopeful when Joe Biden won the presidency. The next sigh of relief comes when the Justice Department announces that Trump is being indicted.
