  • CNN published this video item, entitled “‘Pure insanity’: See top Trump DOJ official’s response to election probe request” – below is their description.

    New emails from Justice Department and White House officials show how President Donald Trump’s allies pressured then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to consider false and outlandish allegations that the 2020 election had been stolen at the same time that Rosen was being elevated to lead the Justice Department in December 2020.

    The emails show how Trump’s White House assistant, chief of staff and other allies pressured the Justice Department to investigate claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election — and how Trump directed allies to push Rosen to join the legal effort to challenge the election result, according to a batch of emails released by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday.

    The documents also offer a window into how Rosen dealt with the political pressure coming from the White House.

    Trump’s campaign to pressure the Justice Department was occurring as he was replacing Attorney General William Barr — who had publicly said there wasn’t evidence of widespread voter fraud — with Rosen, the emails show.
