( – Former senior official Jeffrey Clark, who had served during the Trump administration, could potentially end up losing his license to practice law. On Tuesday a Washington legal ethics panel is going to be hearing evidence regarding his push to have the Department of Justice involved in Trump’s attempt to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election. 

During the Trump administration, Clark had been the Department of Justice’s civil division acting head. He is currently facing a multi-day hearing on ethics charges relating to his attempting to use “dishonesty” and to “interfere with the administration of justice.”

Clark has denied that he has violated any legal ethics rules. On Monday he also wrote on social media that he was being targeted for being a supporter of the former President who had questioned the 2020 election. 

The Board on Professional Responsibility’s three-member committee is going to be holding the hearing. If Clark is found to have violated any ethics rules, then he might potentially end up having his license revoked or suspended. The full board is going to be taking up such a recommendation with the appeals court final action 

The District of Columbia Office of Disciplinary Counsel is the body to have brought forward the legal case against Clark. 

Clark is also one of the co-defendants of the former President in the Georgia case. He has pleaded not guilty in that case. He is also mentioned in the federal case as an “unindicted co-conspirator.” The ethics panel is most likely going to delve deeper into these two cases.
