Trump Justice Department official subpoenaed by January 6 committee

Clark was a key figure in raising doubts about the inegrity of the election, according to a Senate Judiciary report issued last week. The New York Times reported in January that Clark planned with former President Trump to oust acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, and pressure lawmakers in Georgia to reverse the state’s presidential election results.
