On Thursday, CNN aired video via video camera of the Fairfax County Sheriff's Department executing a search warrant at Jeffrey Clark's home early in the morning.


The video, obtained by CNN reporter Hannah Rabinowitz, depicts the Trump administration's Justice Department employee wearing only a formal T-shirt and underwear.


A female officer then informs Clark that she works in the Inspector General's Office in the Department of Justice.



She said, "You can go out with me, we have a search warrant and we need to talk to you." "Can I get you out for me?"


  1. She repeated, "Let's go, let's go."
  2. Can I wear my pants first?" He asked.
  3. He was told: "They're going to evacuate the house."


Clark was a key figure in Trump's plot to rig the 2020 election. According to new information discovered by the House committee during the January 6 rebellion examination, he was working with the White House more closely than previously thought.


Clark drafted a letter for the Justice Department leadership to send to Georgia's election officials in late December 2020, falsely stating that "the Justice Department is investigating various irregularities in the 2020 election for President of the United States" and recommending that Georgia's legislature meet to overturn Joe Biden's victory in the state.


When Justice Department leadership refused to release the letter, Trump considered replacing acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen with Clark. 


He later retreated, but Clark's gambit at the Justice Department was an unprecedented effort to interfere in the 2020 election.


The House Committee to Investigate the 6 January Rebellion decided to charge Clark with contempt of Congress for failing to respond to the Committee's queries. One important concern the committee wants to address is Clark's close cooperation with the White House in his disruptive election message.


"I also wanted to ask him about the metadata in the draft letter indicating some engagement with the White House communications agency [in] drafting or preparing that letter"


 the 6 January committee's senior adviser said in Clark's 5 November briefing. Maddow was first reported late last year.



  • Clark was to defend the Fifth Amendment - a possible acknowledgement of knowledge of criminal activity
  • in response to the January 6 Committee's subpoena in Saturday's planned filing
  • but the hearing was postponed until December 16 due to a "medical condition."


According to a study, Clark violated the administration's rules in his discussions with the White House, and the former president considered appointing Clark as acting attorney general.
