Donald Trump urges the Justice Department to ask the Supreme Court to overturn the election results. It’s unclear when exactly this effort began, but the pressure increased after SCOTUS rejected a Texas lawsuit on December 11.

Trump’s plan is to have the United States file a lawsuit against the states of his choice to invalidate their election results. The DOJ refuses.

Senior department officials, including Mr. Rosen, former Attorney General William Barr and former acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall refused to file the Supreme Court case, concluding that there was no basis to challenge the election outcome and that the federal government had no legal interest in whether Mr. Trump or Mr. Biden won the presidency.

Trump announces William Barr’s resignation on December 14. The next day, he pressures soon-to-be acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen to carry out his plans. When that doesn’t work, he concocts a plan to replace Rosen with a loyalist.
