US watchdog to investigate whether officials made ‘improper attempts’ to alter election result – live | US news | The Guardian

The US Department of Justice’s internal watchdog has said today that his office is launching an investigation in whether any department officials engaged in an improper attempt to alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

This news just snapped on Reuters and clearly refers to the New York Times report at the weekend that said Trump plotted with an official at the Department of Justice to fire the acting attorney general, then force Georgia Republicans to overturn his defeat in that state.

Reuters adds that the investigation will be into whether current or former department officials made an “improper attempt” to seek to alter the results of the 2020 presidential election.
