Emails show how President Trump’s team scrambled to overturn election results

John Yang:

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee say they now have e-mails that show Trump and his staff pressured top Justice Department officials last December to file a lawsuit in the Supreme Court, in an attempt to nullify the 2020 election.

In one e-mail, a Trump White House official sent an entire draft lawsuit to then acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen for the Justice Department to use to throw out election results in six states.

“The president asked me to send the attached draft document for your review,” the official wrote to Rosen and other senior Justice Department officials on December 29.
