The House January 6th committee has subpoenaed Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official and Trump ally. The committee issued the subpoena over belief Clark urged DOJ officials to investigate President Trump’s election fraud claims.

The Hill reports:

“The Select Committee’s investigation has revealed credible evidence that you attempted to involve the Department of Justice in efforts to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power,” the committee wrote in its letter.

“You proposed that the department send a letter to state legislators in Georgia and other states suggesting that they delay certification of their election results and hold a press conference announcing that the department was investigating allegations of voter fraud.”

Clark, the former acting Civil Division assistant attorney general, was at the center of a report from the Senate Judiciary Committee last week detailing Trump’s pressure campaign on the highest ranking officials at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

The subpoena comes after a Senate report suggested the House panel focus on the Justice Department.

“President Trump’s efforts to enlist DOJ and its leadership in his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election were aided by numerous allies with clear ties to the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement and the January 6 insurrection,” the Senate report stated.

According to The Hill, Clark has been a tricky figure for congressional investigators and he refused to sit down with the Senate Judiciary Committee for its report.
