Judge Denies Jeffrey Clark's Request to Transfer Disciplinary Hearing to Federal Court
Jeffrey Clark, an assistant attorney general in the Trump administration, is facing disciplinary proceedings by the D.C. bar.
Rudolph Contreras, a federal judge, ruled that the disciplinary proceedings could not be taken to federal court.
Judge Contreras said that his court lacked jurisdiction and that he could not hear the D.C. returned to the office of the Disciplinary Council of the Bar.
The disciplinary proceedings are based on Clark's alleged actions following the 2020 election.
Clark reportedly wrote a letter on behalf of the Justice Department to the Governor of Georgia and the Legislature.
The letter raised concerns about the state elections and suggested calling a special session of the Legislature.
Rosen, Donoghue and other assistant attorneys general reportedly threatened to resign if Clark was appointed.
