On Wednesday night, law enforcement officials searched former Trump DOJ official Jeffrey Clark’s home in what is likely connected to the January 6th hearings taking place in the House of Representatives.
Clark will likely be a part of the January 6th Committee investigation and may be asked to appear before Congress due to his alleged involvement.
The search on his home follows the political prosecution of multiple high-profile officials in the Trump administration including former Trump advisor Steve Bannon and Pete Navarro, who are being charged with Contempt of Congress.

Federal authorities searched the home of Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official with President Donald Trump’s administration, federal sources told Fox News.
An official with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in DC confirmed to Fox News that there was law enforcement activity in the vicinity of Clark’s Lorton, Virginia, residence on Wednesday, but would not say more. Clark’s name is expected to come up in hearings with the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office DC has no comment regarding the nature of that activity or any particular individuals.
Clark served as acting assistant attorney general for the Civil Division during Trump’s final months in office, and colleagues have testified he was a “true believer” that the 2020 election had been stolen, according to NBC News.
Clark reportedly flouted DOJ policy and met directly with the White House regarding election conspiracies, rather than going through proper channels.
As Democrats continue to persecute conservatives related to the January 6th probe, another report came out on Thursday morning from Politico. Two high-profile Democratic lawmakers reportedly told a Politico reporter that no one “gives a bleep” about the January 6th hearings.

The admission by Democratic lawmakers follows a surge in President Trump’s poll numbers in 2024 during the height of the probe by a partisan Congressional committee.
