The New York Times reporters have revealed the identity of an ally of former US President Donald Trump, who played a key role in developing the latest plan to reverse the country’s election results.
According to the newspaper, a special associate of the former head of state in an attempt to replace the acting Minister of Justice of the country turned out to be Republican Congressman Scott Perry. It is noted that he allegedly played “a significant role in the crisis that erupted this month at the top of the Ministry of Justice,” and helped the former head of state find a “suitable” candidate for the post of acting Minister of Justice in the person of Geoffrey Clark. It is known that Perry acted as an intermediary between them.
Earlier, The New York Times journalists said that Trump in the last weeks of his tenure as president of the United States considered another attempt to cancel the election results – to replace the acting Minister of Justice of the country Jeff Rosen with one of the leading officials of the department, Geoffrey Clark.
It was argued that with the help of the US Department of Justice, the former head of the White House wanted to force Georgia lawmakers to cancel the results of the presidential elections in the state, where Democrat Joe Biden won by a narrow margin.
Joe Biden was inaugurated on January 20, he became the 46th President of the United States. The ceremony was attended by outgoing Vice President Mike Pence, former Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, along with the spouses. The anthem of the USA was performed by Lady Gaga. Trump ignored the ceremony, breaking a 150-year-old tradition, and left Washington a few hours before the celebrations.
