Trump summoned Rosen, wanting the Justice Department to file legal briefs supporting his allies’ lawsuits. And he urged Rosen to appoint special counsels to investigate unfounded accusations of widespread fraud. But Rosen refused, per ⁦@ktbenner⁩.

Top DOJ leaders listened in stunned silence this month: One of their peers, had devised a plan with Pres. Trump to oust Jeff Rosen as acting AG and wield the power to force Georgia state lawmakers to overturn its election results.

EXCLUSIVE: When @ktbenner first told me about this story even I was stunned after 4 years of covering the Trump Administration. This coda is one for the history books.

EXTRAORDINARY STORY by @ktbenner on how Trump and a little-known Justice Dept. lawyer secretly plotted with Trump to OUST the Acting Attorney General just before his term ended as Trump sought to overturn the election results. Nearly a coup at DOJ.

Quoted @ktbenner

Don't know what to say. I guess there was, I dunno, an almost-coup at DOJ so that this man no one really knew outside of the department could send a letter to Georgia politicians to stop the steal

SCOOP: The acting head of DOJ's civil division spoke with Trump about a plan to stop the steal; and then told Acting AG Rosen that he was gonna be replaced in order for the plan to be implemented. And then DOJ senior leaders said they would quit en masse

As more women — and therefore more survivors — entered government, they and others have been vocal about how much more complicated the calculus of abuse can be, how yawning the gaps in protection and how damaging the belief that victims can just leave.

TW: Domestic Violence

Every time someone dies at the hands of their partner, that’s something we could’ve stopped as a society.

I’m a survivor of domestic and sexual assault. We’re legislating to create a society that’s safe for us all.

New: Congresswoman Cori Bush and musician FKA twigs describe what makes abusive relationships hard to leave: It’s not just the violence. It’s the psychological manipulation. Now, some of it is against the law. Story w/ @ktbenner

Thank you @melanar and @ktbenner for your outstanding reporting. This is why I introduced Jennifer’s Law in CT - to identify and prevent all forms of abusive controlling behavior. And to ensure that women like #jenniferdulos gain the freedom they deserve.

This is dumb and bad for a lot of reasons, but also: The cheapest watch Shinola sells is $400. Certainly not Rolex territory but the New York Times is kind of telling on itself by describing that as an “Everyman” watch.

In addition to being expensive, I would like to point out that Shinola is bankrolled by rapacious private equity firms. #teamrolex

I would love some data on how many reporters and editors at the NYT have Peletons and own a Rolex. And whether I can get a story about it.

This is critical reporting by @ktbenner @melenar about how we need a much better understanding of coercive control & unseen, early signs of domestic violence.
