This morning, the New York Times is reporting that the Mad King called the acting attorney general in a clear effort to interfere with the 2020 presidential election, asking Jeffrey A. Rosen, and his deputy, Richard P. Donoghue, to call the election 'corrupt'.

This is just one more example of Donald Trump using the levers of government to advance his personal agenda.

The exchange unfolded during a phone call on Dec. 27 in which Mr. Trump pressed the acting attorney general at the time, Jeffrey A. Rosen, and his deputy, Richard P. Donoghue, on voter fraud claims that the department had disproved. Mr. Donoghue warned that the department had no power to change the outcome of the election. Mr. Trump replied that he did not expect that, according to notes Mr. Donoghue took memorializing the conversation.

Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me” and to congressional allies, Mr. Donoghue wrote in summarizing Mr. Trump’s response.


Congressional allies? No wonder Jim Jordan is stammering over his answers to the question of when he spoke to president Trump on Jan. 6... before, during, and/or after the insurrection: https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1420827835246186496

Imagine of Hillary Clinton or president Obama had ever tried this... republicans would be calling for their execution.

History will certainly remember Trump as the most inept, corrupt president in the history of the United States, with no close second.
