According to a report from Business Insider, one pro-Trump attorney is facing quite the uphill battle in his professional life after attempting to take over control of the Department of Justice in an attempt to keep disgraced ex-President Donald Trump in power, despite the fact that he clearly and fairly lost the 2020 presidential election to now-President Joe Biden.
“The Trump taint is sticking to Jeffrey Clark,” the Insider report reads. “In the 10 months since the would-be Justice Department coup, Clark’s name has been scrubbed from the conservative legal group where he’d landed his first post-Trump job. He lawyered up in the face of congressional scrutiny. But, just days before his Friday interview with the House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol, Clark parted ways with the defense lawyer Robert Driscoll, Politico reported late Wednesday.”
Clark is, frankly, one of many attorneys to suffer similar repercussions for their involvement with ex-President Donald Trump.
“In the eyes of several former colleagues, Clark has joined the ranks of once-respected conservative lawyers — including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the former prosecutor Sidney Powell, and the constitutional scholar John Eastman — who have been burned flying too close to Trump,” the publication reports.

“Honestly, I feel bad that the guy appears to have been canceled. He made his own bed, but I don’t wish anyone to be unemployable,” the former official stated with regard to Clark’s situation.
I don’t know about these guys, but my mama always told me, “You reap what you sow.”
I don’t know what else they expected.
