Federal investigators conducted a raid on Jeffrey Clark’s home on Wednesday, June 22nd 2022. Clark was a former employee of the Trump Justice Department. Since he is currently in the spotlight, many people have been interested in learning more about his wife Melissa and son Ethan Clark.
In a dawn raid, more than a dozen DOJ law enforcement officers searched Jeff Clark’s Virginia home, confiscated his electronics, and placed him on the streets while still in his pajamas.
In conjunction with the DOJ’s investigation into attempts to rig the presidential election, Clark, who helped throw doubt on Donald Trump’s loss in the 2020 election, had his house examined.
Jeffrey Clark Wife (Melissa Clark) and Son
Ethan is the name of Jeffrey Clark’s kid, who he shares with his wife Melissa. On the internet, though, there is relatively little information on them.
On Facebook, a photo of their family from 2014 was shared, and it appears to be the only one available. Clark seems to have maintained a low profile in politics when it comes to his personal life.
However, his Wikipedia has a wealth of information about him. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is where he was born. He completed his high school education at Father Judge High School in Tacony, Pennsylvania.
He graduated from Harvard College in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts in economics and history. He joined the legislative debate team there.
In 1993, he earned a Master of Arts in urban affairs and public policy from the University of Delaware, and in 1995, he received a Juris Doctor from the Georgetown University Law Center.
He served as a legal assistant for Judge Danny J. Boggs of the Sixth Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals after obtaining his law degree. During the George W. Bush administration, he served as the Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the Justice Department from 2001 to 2005.
From 2012 to 2015, he was a member of the Administrative Law Section’s governing council of the American Bar Association. He is also a member of the Federalist Society.
Jeffrey Clark Career
Under the Trump administration, Jeffrey Clark oversaw environmental law at the Justice Department. Additionally, he received a promotion to assistant attorney general for the department’s civil division in December 2020.
He helped Trump develop a plan to oust Jeffrey Rosen, who was acting attorney general at the time, take over the office, and direct the DOJ to meddle in Georgia’s election to tip the state in Trump’s direction, according to CNN.
At a heated discussion in the Oval Office on January 3, 2021, Rosen, his then-deputy Richard Donoghue, and the head of the Office of Legal Counsel Steven Engel all threatened to depart in protest. Trump ultimately made the decision not to nominate Clark for attorney general as a consequence.
Days before the January 6 U.S. Capitol Riot, this event took place. At the hearing on Thursday, Rosen, Donoghue, and Engel will all give testimony.
