WASHINGTON — Top Justice Department officials and White House lawyers made clear to then-President Donald Trump in early January that they would all resign from the administration if Trump replaced his acting attorney general with an ally who had been pushing his effort to overturn the 2020 election.

That’s according to a nearly 400-page report released Thursday by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which provides a detailed timeline of Trump’s campaign to pressure DOJ officials to help him try to reverse Joe Biden’s victory. The report’s findings are based on testimony from three former DOJ officials as well as documents and emails.

From the day former Attorney General William Barr announced his resignation in mid-December of last year to early January, Trump held at least nine calls or in-person meetings with senior DOJ officials in which he directly and repeatedly asked them “to initiate investigations, file lawsuits on his behalf, and publicly declare the 2020 election ‘corrupt,'” according to the report, prepared by the panel’s Democratic staff.”
