The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the House of Representatives of the US Congress previously stated that the former president allegedly asked the department heads “just to say that the elections were not clean.”
Former US President Donald Trump fundamentally disagrees with the statements of the US Congress that at the end of last year, he tried to put pressure on officials of the Ministry of Justice to achieve the cancellation of the results of the presidential elections held in November 2020. This is stated in the statement of the politician.
“In fact, it’s just the opposite. The documents were supposed to support the integrity and integrity of the elections and the sanctity of our voting <…>. Our country has experienced an incredibly corrupt presidential election, and it is time for Congress and others to study how this was allowed, rather than investigate those who expose this massive fraud for the American people,” the message says.
On Friday, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the House of Representatives of the US Congress released a statement according to which Trump exerted pressure on senior officials of the Ministry of Justice. The committee came to this conclusion after the handwritten notes distributed by the chairman Carolyn Maloney (Democrat from New York State), made on December 27 last year by the then acting Deputy Minister of Justice – US Attorney General Richard Donoghue, which relate to his telephone conversation with Trump and Jeffrey Rosen, who was the acting head of the Ministry of Justice at that time.
Trump allegedly asked the leaders of the Justice Department to “say that the elections were not clean, and leave the rest to him and his fellow party members in Congress.”
