Former Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Bossert Clark, who sought to help President Donald Trump reverse his 2020 election loss, had his home searched by US law enforcement officers on Wednesday, an experience he describes as “Stasi-esque.”

In an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, Clark shared his dismay at what he had to endure when he was forced to stand outside his home in his pajamas while a search of his home by armed federal agents took place.

“There was a lot of banging in front of my door. I soon found out that there were agents. I asked for the courtesy of putting on pants and was told “no”. They swept the house. Twelve officers and two Fairfax County police officers searched it for more than three hours. There was also an electronic sniffer dog. All electronics have been removed from my house,” Clark said.

“I just think we’re living in an era that I don’t recognize and increasingly, Tucker, I don’t recognize the country anymore with these Stasi-esque things happening,” Clark said.

“Yes, this is Stalinist,” Carlson replied. “At some point someone starts to fight back and it gets super ugly. I pray it doesn’t happen, but I think it probably will.”

The Stasi was one of the most hated and feared institutions of the East German communist government between 1950 and 1990.

One of the main tasks of the Stasi was to spy on the population, mainly through an extensive network of civilians turned informers, and to fight any opposition through overt and covert measures.

Clark, a former Justice Department official and a staunch Trump, explained how federal agents searched his home for three and a half hours.

Federal agents searched the home of Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department attorney who was considering installing former President Donald Trump as attorney general in the days before the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, as part of an election campaign. to undo.

An ally, Russ Vought, head of the Office of Management and Budget at Trump’s White House, said Clark should be out on the street in his pajamas.

The raid took place as part of the department’s investigation into the January 6, 2021 attack on the United States Capitol.

U.S. law enforcement officers searched his Virginia home on Wednesday in a Washington suburb of Lorton, Virginia.

At the time of the search, a US congressional panel investigating the deadly Jan. 6 attack was preparing its fifth hearing on Trump’s failed attempts to pressure the Justice Department to reverse its 2020 defeat.

Clark is said to have been a key figure in Trump’s plan to stay in power after losing the 2020 election.

In the days leading up to the January 6 violence, Trump was considering a proposal to appoint Clark as acting attorney general.

“At what point can we say that the Justice Department, where you once served, is a political tool, it’s gotten completely out of hand?” asked Carlson during Thursday night’s interview.

“Yeah, I think this is highly politicized and it’s also part, Tucker if you didn’t know, of a nationwide effort yesterday,” Clark explained.

“There were several states where several people were mugged for their electronic devices at about the same time. And that, of course, requires a high degree of coordination.’

Congress was told that Clark at one point pressured others in his department to send a letter to Georgia lawmakers falsely claiming that the Justice Department had “significant concerns” about Bidens’ legitimacy victory in the state, echoing President Trump’s false claims of vote fraud.

In fact, Biden won the state without widespread evidence of voter fraud.

His letter to Republican Governor Brian Kemp urged him to convene a special session of the Georgian legislature to create a separate list of voters who support Trump.

“History is calling,” Clark, a relatively young official, told the president at the White House on Jan. 3, according to a statement from Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue and an excerpt from a court file.

‘This is our chance. We can make this happen.’

In the event, Trump decided not to promote Clark amid warnings that hundreds of DOJ officials would resign if he did.

Carlson made no mention of this fact during the clip in which Clark appeared, instead describing it this way: “What he was doing wrong was simply calling for an investigation into voter fraud.”

Clark was subpoenaed and appeared before the panel twice, but his attorney later told the panel that Clark intended to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Clark faces an investigation by the Inspector General of the Department of Justice and an ethics investigation by the DC Office of Disciplinary Counsel, an office that investigates attorney misconduct.

Clark previously served as assistant attorney general in the department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division and briefly served as chief of the civil division toward the end of the Trump presidency.
