A Trump-appointed DOJ official asked his superiors to look into “foreign election interference issues.”
Newly released emails reveal Jeffrey Clark claimed China had changed voter ballots using thermostats.
Clark also urged Georgia to investigate voter irregularities, despite DOJ stating there were none.
Jeffrey Clark, a Donald Trump-appointed Justice Department official, told senior officials that China used thermostats to change ballots in the 2020 presidential election.
In a recently released email from December 2020, Clark wrote to his superiors including acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen and his deputy, Richard Donoghue, and asked them to look into “foreign election interference issues”.
Clark claimed that hackers had evidence that “a Dominion machine accessed the Internet through a smart thermostat with a net connection trail leading back to China.”
The emails were obtained by the House Oversight Committee and reported on by ABC.
In recent weeks Clark has emerged as a key figure in assisting Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election.
Trump made Clark acting assistant attorney general of the Justice Department’s civil division in September 2020, and according to the New York Times, the two later plotted to oust Jeffrey Rosen and appoint Clark as acting attorney general.
