Jeffrey Clark, who served as assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources from 2018 to 2021, originally presented the conspiracy to Trump when he tried to help the then-president change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. .
After hearing about it, Trump asked National Intelligence Directorate John Ratcliffe to investigate whether Nest thermostats had interfered in the election and changed the ballots from being cast for him to Biden.
Trump wanted to appoint Clark as acting attorney general after former attorney general Bill Barr stepped down in December — just a month before Trump was due to leave office.
‘[Clark] believed that wireless thermostats made in China for Google by a company called Nest Labs may have been used to manipulate voting machines in Georgia,” Karl wrote in his book.
He added: “The idea was crazy, but it intrigued Trump, who asked Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe to look into it.”
Karl said White House counsel Pat Cipollone told Trump at the time that if Clark became attorney general, there would be a massive resignation from the Justice Department — so Trump withdrew the effort.
After that failed, Trump just kept Clark at his old post.
“After Jeffrey Clark attempted a coup at the Justice Department, he kept his job,” Karl said.
Karl’s book ‘Betrayal’ will be released on November 16, 2021.
