Ex-Trump Justice official Clark faces legal disciplinary charges

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Legal licensing authorities in Washington announced on Friday they have filed disciplinary charges against Jeffrey Bossert Clark, a former Trump administration Justice Department official who tried to get himself appointed as attorney general to help promote Donald Trump’s false election fraud claims. Clark, who is now also facing a federal investigation into his conduct, is accused of attempting to “engage in conduct involving dishonesty” and attempting actions “that would seriously interfere with the administration of justice,” according to a petition filed by the D.C. Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel. The ethics charges, dated June 29 and received by the Bar of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on July 19, were made public on Friday, after Clark was served a copy of them in the morning, said Hamilton “Phil” Fox, the head of the D.C. Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
