WATCH: Two Minutes from the Jan. 6 Hearing That Show Trump Acted Criminally to Steal the 2020 Election – https://www.mediaite.com/trump/watch-two-minutes-from-the-jan-6-hearing-that-show-trump-acted-criminally-to-steal-the-2020-election/
"Former President Donald Trump directed his Justice Department to simply declare the 2020 general election “corrupt” and said he and Republicans in Congress would take care of the rest.
Reports of this have been out for some time, but former Acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue testified to the House Select Committee Thursday, under oath, that this happened, and he had contemporaneous notes as evidence.
Donoghue is not some member of “resistance Twitter” nor is he a Never Trumper. He was a senior member of the Trump DOJ, largely because he was loyal to the Trump administration and former Attorney General Bill Barr. And yet, here he was, under questioning by Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger, admitting to the public under penalty of perjury, that the former president tried to pressure the Justice Department into declaring a fair election fraudulent so that he could remain in power."
