WaPo: Trump Called Acting A.G. Rosen Almost Daily To Push Probes Of 2020 Election

 

The Washington Post reports that last year, Trump called Acting A.G. Jeffrey Rosen almost daily to pressure the DOJ to investigate false claims of voter fraud. Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who sits on the Jan. 6 select committee, says “we will find out” if those phone calls by Trump contributed to the attack on the Capitol: “We have a pattern here of subversion of the electoral system that we need to take very seriously.”

    1. @Engage360 but here’s the thing. At least in NYC: CRIME IS WAY DOWN COMPARED TO WHEN GHOULIANI WAS MAYOR. LOOK IT UP.

    2. @Engage360 Six months ago Trump directed domestic terrorists to attack Congress in an attempt to overturn the results of a democratic election.

    3. @Kevin Connor Mr. Chan may be watching Youtube from Hong Kong. Thanks for your comment tho Mr. Chan

    1. @Engage360 Foxnews is finally reporting the truth (sometimes) because they don’t want to keep getting sued. You listen to stupid conspiracy theories. Poor little guy.

    2. I’m from the Atlantic City area. Trust me, the Jersey mob didn’t want him. Too fkn stupid. True.

    3. @Andrew Chan
      There you go Andrew with the Retrumplican deny, deflect, and put the blame somewhere else! If you would check into your research a little better you would see that the border has been a problem for years! Trump had one of the worst Border policies! He just lied to you idiots and as usual you believe anything he says! All the to do about the border is just the Retrumplicans trying to draw the attention there, so the American citizens don’t realize about the voting law changes that they’re sneaking through at midnight in every State with Republican attorney generals and helped by the Chickenshit Republican senators!

      We can’t believe anybody with a brain and common sense believed all the lies that we’ve told!

      Release the Kracken !!!

    1. @Andrew Chan And the Trump administration allowed Putin to have all the control and top and secret American info . Trump Traitor

    2. American justice led by the heroic democrats will answer first, then maybe God will have his turn with those traitors before they are sent to their reward of eternal hellfire. But we gotta take care of our own house, because if we wait until God gets a go at it, nothing will have changed. WE NEED JUSTICE NOW, and we need to administer it with our own hands

    3. The fraudulent nightly network newscasts have devoted ZERO minutes to crime recently, even though crime is eating away at our cities and our Country. They don’t want to talk about it because it will hurt the political narrative of the Communist Democrats. Just think, six months ago we had the most secure Border in our history. Today, it is the least secure in our history with criminals illegally flooding into our Country—many spreading COVID into our communities—and other Countries’ prisons being emptied into our neighborhoods. America needs law and order, not defunding the police. We need our police back. America should and can be safe!

    4. Kick the can down the road, deny all responsibility, do nothing, and leave everything to an imaginary sky-wizard to resolve. Yep, that’ll sort it out for sure.

  1. I’m so glad that officer called him a hitman. I just wish people would stop calling him a president or former president. He never did one presidential thing. Golf doesn’t count.

  2. “Beware the power of stupid people in large groups. Before you know it, they’ve all got little hats”
    – George Carlin

    1. Just had a photograph from the border 1000s of fighting age men crossing illegally all wearing a I love China Joe t-shirt!!!

  3. Remember that one time when Bill Clinton had a conversation with Loretta Lynch and the entire GOP went bananas! No? Neither do they (the GOP) evidently.

    1. Also, Clinton did it in clear view. If I recall, it was a hot day and they were standing on the tarmac, so he invited her into the plane to chat. What the GOP didn’t talk about was the 4.6% GDP growth, the balanced budget, the zero national debt, the record number of jobs created (18.5 million) etc. I’m not condoning Clinton’s affair with Monica, but when compared to the crimes committed by Trump, that’s like getting a parking ticket.

    2. @Lotta Sunshine and actually what Bill and Monica did was nobodies business but theirs and Hillary’s. Like when Bush’s daughter was having drug problems and poppa said it’s a personal family matter and we’d appreciate respect and privacy to handle it. Such good Christian hypocrisy from the GOP

    1. @Nhung Ngo wow you’re so bad at reading someone. No not what Freddie meant at all!!! It means the Dems need to get TOUGH or find someone who will .

  4. This combined with the calls to Georgia election officials (which trump is also under investigation for) points to a clear pattern of election interference and the attempted subversion of democracy.

    1. I watched the hearing and it was chilling the threats, violence, many had to leave their homes, provided escourt to and from their car to the office. Many installed security systems and their homes to protect themselves from these right wing militias simply for doing their jobs, counting votes! And Republicans disgusting vulgar attacks said nothing about these militias and racists! Many blacks and women were targeted, confronted, harassed simply because of their race and gender. Trumpsters are the worst of humanity. The man who confronted Tucker Carlson was correct as now Faux News denigrating the capital police who testified saying they were scripted by Pelosi and they were acting? Laura Ingraham is despicable had pictures of trophies for the acting?! I wish they could be buried under a rock but this is half of America…disgusting!

    2. anita windbigler – and when you allow states to do door to door registration, like Georgia did, and are allowed to help people fill out their ballots, that’s exactly what you do.
      You go out and find people that might not want to vote, and convince them to vote for your party.
      Do you even understand what Stacey Abrams organization does and how it works?

    3. @The Environmentalist i just checked the comment sections on FOX. There’s alot of folks over there calling Trump a POS too. His grip is loosening. Thank God!!

    4. @CrimdorAs mentioned I watched the hearing and it was chilling the threats, violence, confrontations these election officials received and are still getting. Many had to leave their homes, provided escourt to and from their car to the office. Many installed security systems in their homes to protect themselves from these right wing militias simply for doing their jobs, counting votes!
      Many election officials couldn’t handle it and retired, took Family, medical leave. And Republicans disgusting vulgar attacks said nothing about these militias and racists attacking them! Many blacks and women were targeted, confronted, harassed simply because of their race and gender. Trumpsters are the worst of humanity. The man who confronted Tucker Carlson was correct as now Faux News denigrating the capital police who testified saying they were scripted by Pelosi and they were acting? Laura Ingraham is despicable had pictures of trophies for the acting?! I wish they could be buried under a rock but this is half of America…disgusting!

  5. They need to have warrants sworn out against any person that threatens election officials. Seize their weapons and lock them up.

    1. @Scott Tyson What does that have to do with Trump supporters carrying out acts of insurrection, domestic terrorism, and threatening our election officials?

    1. @Debra Johnson I’m pretty sure investigators don’t care what Debra Johnson from YouTube believes.

    2. @dublinjazz1 Who said they did. But 14 investigations is stupid and now another which is just a bad soapl opera.

  6. With all the problems this country had, including a deadly pandemic. What was “the hit man” doing?? He was worried about himself.

    1. @John Markes – Yes. We all saw that video of Donald in a lab coat juggling test tubes. Remarkable, wasn’t it?

    2. @MERLE1593 Yes is was. All of our great presidents done stuff like that. From Reagan to Obama.

    1. pewtin to his henchmen; “Comrades, we have to deal with Biden from now on. Our American Agent is unable to pay us back what he owes. Release the tapes”

    2. Putin is already working on the 2022 election and it’s not even the presidential election!! He keeps getting caught trying to break into our gas companies, hospitals, and food processing plants again too. WTF?? President Biden said today we might be going to WAR with Russia – an actual Military WAR, not a cyber war!!

    1. It’s sadly the custom. The only time I ever heard a different approach was when George W Bush became President, as that was confusing,”Which President Bush?”

  7. Every time a new president took over office the old president was at the inauguration Trump didn’t go because he planned January 6th he knew what was coming down

  8. Trump got away with so many things for 4 years including 2 impeachments that he started doing things right out in the open because he got away with everything. The GOP made this monster a bigger monster. America desperately needs to get smarter and stop letting crooks run it.

    1. its was republican voters who are to blame for creating this monster, dont ever forget that. its our neighbors, family members, ex-friends, co-workers, all of them now enemies of america and they are who are to blame for trying to destroy our democracy.

    2. Stopped 4 conflicts in the middle east. Created the vaccines. Raised the GDP by 33%. Yep Trump is a monster. ( operation warp speed. Abraham accords. Cares Act) you don’t have to like him, but he’s not a monster.

  9. We need to move fast before the Republicans steal back the House, dammit, and they are swimming in molasses.
