TRUMP AFTERSHOCKS: He’s gone from office, but the you-can’t-make-this-up stories about Trump’s (mis)conduct as president keep coming. Look no further than the lead of this New York Times story that posted last night: “The Justice Department’s top leaders listened in stunned silence this month: One of their peers, they were told, had devised a plan with President Donald J. Trump to oust Jeffrey A. Rosen as acting attorney general and wield the department’s power to force Georgia state lawmakers to overturn its presidential election results.”
Well, if true, that’s a prosecutable conspiracy to commit fraud (18 U.S. Code § 371) right there. I hope that the DOJ is looking at it.
Trump backed off, the story continued, “but only after Mr. Rosen and Mr. [Jeffrey] Clark [Trump’s partner in the gambit] made their competing cases to him in a bizarre White House meeting that two officials compared with an episode of Mr. Trump’s reality show ‘The Apprentice,’ albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis.”
