Federal Police Searches Home of Jeffrey Clark, Who Persuaded Trump's False Electoral Fraud Claims, Also Former DOJ Officer

Federal investigators on Wednesday conducted a search of the home of former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, people briefed on the matter tell CNN. 

Clark is the former DOJ lawyer who former President Donald Trump sought to install as attorney general in the days before the January 6 Capitol riot 

as top officials refused to go along with his vote fraud claims. It wasn't clear what investigators were seeking at Clark's home, but the raid was part of 

the Justice Department's sweeping investigation into the effort to overturn the 2020 elections, according to sources familiar with the matter. 

The search occurred on the day the Justice Department served subpoenas to people involved in the Trump campaign's push to organize a  

slate of fake electors to try to certify a Trump and not Joe Biden election victory. He was at the center of an effort by Trump to get  

the Justice Department to falsely claim there was enough voter fraud in Georgia and other states that he lost.
