The latter is accused of having encouraged his supporters to launch an assault on the Capitol on January 6, when the elected representatives of Congress certified the victory of his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, in the presidential election.
Trump narrowly lost Georgia to Biden in the November presidential election, in a vote he claimed was baseless to be rigged.
According to U.S. newspapers, Trump has grown increasingly frustrated with Rosen’s refusal to use the power of the Justice Department to interfere with the vote count.
He allegedly worked out a plan with Jeffrey Clark, a Justice Department attorney who backed up his claims that his election victory was stolen, to give him the job of Rosen.
But, in a three-hour ordeal involving the three men, Trump is said to have finally backed down, under threat of massive resignations from the Justice Department, writes the New York Times.
Clark categorically denied devising a plan to oust Rosen.
As for Trump, Rosen and the US Department of Justice, they have not publicly responded to the claims published in the press.
In early January, the release of an audio recording, in which President Trump is heard asking a Georgia official to “find” votes to reverse the presidential outcome in that state, had already sent shock waves through Washington. .
