Former U.S. Department of Justice attorney Jeffrey Clark will face disciplinary proceedings in January 2024 for helping Donald Trump overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. The committee overseeing his professional misconduct case made the decision on Tuesday.

The DC Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel filed Ethics allegations v. Clark in July 2022. These proceedings had been stayed for several months. Clark requested that the case against him be moved to federal court in October 2022. A federal judge rejected that request in June in a lengthy opinion that found federal courts have no jurisdiction over bar license disputes.

Clark is an environmental lawyer Trump almost knocked to be acting attorney general in his fading battle to retain the presidency. He previously worked as a former deputy attorney general at one DOJ subagency and as acting deputy attorney general at another. His legal complaints center on an unsent draft letter that falsely claimed that the department had identified “significant concerns that may have affected the election results in several states, including the state of Georgia.”
