Criminal Complaint Filed Against Trump For Attempted Election Steal

A criminal complaint has been filed with the Department of Justice over Donald Trump’s attempts to pressure that same department to work to overturn his loss in the 2020 election to President Joe Biden.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a government watchdog group, filed the complaint against Trump and his chief of staff Mark Meadows.

“The Department of Justice should investigate whether former President Trump and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows violated federal criminal law by attempting to weaponize the Department of Justice as part of their larger campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, according to a complaint filed today by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington,” CREW said in a statement to the press.

Media reports recently revealed that Trump reportedly tried to pressure the acting Attorney General in late 2020 to pursue conspiracy theories that the election was stolen from Trump.

These alarming and illegal acts were part of a broader conspiracy to deprive American citizens of their right to vote and to have their votes counted. Ultimately, this pattern of misconduct aimed at undermining the democratic process culminated in the seditious attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021,” said CREW President Noah Bookbinder. “Government officials who try to subvert our republic and undermine democratic rule must be held accountable to the full extent of the criminal law.”
