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.
"...Mr. Rosen and Mr. Clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre White House meeting that two officials compared with an episode of Mr. Trump’s reality show 'The Apprentice,' albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis." @ktbenner:
“He met with Mr. Trump over the weekend, then informed Mr. Rosen midday on Sunday that the president intended to replace him with Mr. Clark, who could then try to stop Congress from certifying the Electoral College results.”

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.

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

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
