A top Justice Department ally was ordered to vacate the building and banned from its facilities after a new report tried to pressurize officials to provide alleged information about election fraud To make available.
White House liaison officer Heidi Stirrup was reportedly a close colleague of Stephen Miller, one of the president's closest advisors. She was appointed as the liaison between the White House and the Justice Department in the last few months in the final days of the 2020 election.
Ms. Stirrup was charged with seeking confidential information from Justice Department sources about ongoing investigations and open cases of apparent allegations of electoral fraud.
According to the Associated Press, which cited numerous anonymous sources, she was evicted from the Justice Department within the past two weeks. The Justice Department, the White House and Ms. Stirrup responded immediately to requests for comment.
The news comes after Attorney General William Barr told the AP earlier this week in an interview that his department had not seen credible evidence of mass fraud in a way that would alter the results of the presidential election.
However, the president and his allies continued to advance false and debunked conspiracy theories related to his election defeat, falsely claiming that the vote against him was rigged before the ballot papers could be counted.
The attorney general told the news agency: "So far we have not seen any fraud on a scale that could have led to a different election result."
Trump's personal attorney, meanwhile, has continued to claim the election was stolen in public statements while taking his discredited claims and witnesses to state houses and hearings across the country amid a series of failed legal challenges.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who led the president's legal battle against the electoral process, was forced to try to silence his own testimony at a hearing in Michigan Wednesday night when she attacked Republican lawmakers.
This is a game changing story and will be updated.
