Jeff Clark Legal Defense

Campaign Created by: Supporters

The funds from this campaign will be received by Jeffrey Clark.

Goal: USD $500,000
Raised: USD $ 64,277

Jeff Clark has been an eminent legal practitioner over a career spanning about 25 years.  No question about his qualifications, his ethics, or his legal acumen had ever been raised prior to late January 2021.  He served in the Bush Administration as a very young (34 year-old) Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Environment and Natural Resources Division from 2001-2005, fighting against over-regulation and winning awards from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and, most importantly, from the Pentagon for protecting naval readiness.  Without his efforts, China's race for naval domination would have advanced by leaps and bounds.

Like many true and stalwart conservatives who decided to continue their honorable track record of public service by joining the Trump Administration, however (or who otherwise became aligned in the minds of the monolithic "mainstream" media), Jeff Clark was frequently attacked and thus began a process of tearing down his reputation, earned the hard way over decades.  Sadly, it takes less effort to tear someone down than to build him up, no matter the consequences to him, to his children, or to the nation.

President Trump nominated Jeff Clark to become the Assistant Attorney General of the 400-lawyer Environment Division at the Justice Department in 2017.  He was proud, 17 years later, to take the helm of the DOJ litigating Division he had first entered as a leader in 2001.  Despite attempts to block his confirmation (which held him up for an unprecedented 14-month period), he was confirmed with bipartisan support in October 2018 and took office on November 1, 2018.  He accomplished much--(1) securing billions of dollars in penalties from those cheating the American people; (2) defending President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords that stripped Americans of jobs, offshoring them to China and other parts of the world for no good purpose; and (3) spearheading the first reform of the red-tape-encrusted National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 40 years, which was, among other things, slowing infrastructure renewal to a crawl.  In recognition of his strong work in the Environment Division, Jeff Clark was ALSO named the Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Division (adding another 1,000 lawyers to his oversight responsibilities) in early September 2020.  He left both offices behind as part of the transition in mid-January 2021.

As part of a new and destructive era in politics, Jeff Clark has been targeted for cancellation by the hyper-partisan January 6 Committee, the "mainstream" media, and a collection of leftist law professors and supposed "Republicans" who are conveniently never-Trumpers.  He needs your support to defend himself against these unfair assaults and the efforts to penetrate into confidential advice he provided to President Trump--for on the Left, the advice given to all Democrat Presidents is sacrosanct but President Trump somehow cannot be afforded those same constitutional protections.  Think of the outcry if President Trump had taken office and immediately ordered the release of the advice given to President Obama from Attorney General Holder about the "Fast and Furious" operation.

In the minds of his enemies, President Trump is a special case that must be resisted at all costs and anyone who during their term of office did not sit around presiding over meetings but who instead zealously acted in the service of President Trump's efforts to "take care that the Laws be faithfully executed," U.S. Const. art II, sec 3, is equally an enemy.  Because the view that Mr. Trump is not entitled to the respect his office commands, is not the neutral way in which our constitutional republic or lawyer-client relationships work, Jeff Clark needs the support of American patriots like you. 



Update #11 Post Removal Hearing
September 23, 2023

Thanks to everyone for their support.

I wanted to update you. The removal hearing in my case involving Fani Willis in Georgia was heard on Monday September 18, 2023.

We submitted a declaration from former Attorney General and legal luminary Ed Meese in support of why there is federal removal jurisdiction as I was a federal officer during the period Fani Willis is using to question my conduct. I was acting within the color of my federal office.

We do not know when the Judge will rule.

Update #10 -- Thank You! // a Six-Front War // Fulton County Jail // Arraignment Waiver // Latest Litigation Events // Expansion of Legal Team
September 2, 2023
facebook X

It has been several months since I have updated all of you, for which I apologize. June, July, and August 2023 have all very active months defending my law license.

First, I want to thank all of you and the Lord for blessing me with an outpouring of support. So in turn I want to call for God’s blessings on you! You have been a source to me and my family.

Second, recent events have now placed me in a position where I have to defend myself on six roughly simultaneous fronts: (1) Hearing Committee #12 of the D.C. Bar; (2) the D.C. Court of Appeals (the District of Columbia’s highest local court—an Article I court in the schema of our Constitution); (3) the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia—an Article III court in the constitutional schema; (4) the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia — also an Article III court in the constitutional schema — all of these four fronts concerning my bar license defense; (5) the Fulton County Superior Court (a state court), where I was indicted along with President Trump and 17 others; and (6) the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia (also an Article III court in the constitutional schema).

You have to hand it to them, the Democrats know how to launch lawfare. It is a marvel to behold. An evil marvel, but still a marvel.

Third, at about 1 am last Friday (August 25), I went to the Fulton County jail (which is under investigation for its poor conditions and civil rights violations by the federal government) for “booking,” a “mug shot,” etc. As the straightest of arrows in two stints in federal government service and one in state government, this was an interesting experience, to say the least. But as an aspect of God’s blessing, I do have to tell you that the officers and others at the jail were very professional and even kind to me. Maybe they see through exactly what this politicized process really is.

Fourth, after I caught a brief nap, I began to work on another brief with my lawyers to defend my bar license but without waiting for that brief to be filed, on that same day (August 25), the U.S. District Court in D.C. issued an order denying two stays I had filed. (That timing was quite curious given that it came while I was till in Atlanta.) The gist of our position was that I should be able to first see the Georgia proceedings to conclusion before having to defend my bar license.

Fifth, on August 31, we filed a stay request with the D.C. Circuit to hold the bar proceedings in stasis so that I could focus all defense efforts on the Georgia charges. Fani Willis’s theory in Atlanta is essentially the same as the D.C. Bar’s — and equally flawed.

Sixth, without waiving any of my rights, yesterday I waived arraignment in the Fulton County Superior Court so that I could avoid another time-consuming trip to Atlanta.

Seventh, as you may have read in the news, like President Trump’s last Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, I removed the Fulton County case against me to federal court — to the Northern District of Georgia. The federal judge in that case, Judge Jones, has set a removal hearing in my case for September 18, 2023. Please pray for me that I am successful in removing that case to federal court. My appeal in the D.C. Circuit removing the D.C. Bar case against me to federal court is still ongoing. Please pray for my success there as well.

Eighth, I will continue the fight. I cannot give into the forces of tyranny that are trying to turn our beloved USA into a one-party state. I call on your prayers for the whole nation and that my family and I hold up through this long struggle, which has already lasted about two and three-quarters years.

Ninth, I also receive various harassing messages on Twitter/X and also on this site. Pray for our enemies, that they will see the light and stop being so mean-spirited.

Finally, I will pray for all of you and the Nation. I also ask for your prayers for my legal team, which is coming under fire in recent media stories. It’s all part of the lawfare effort against conservatives. I’ve had to expand my team, and sadly, given all the fronts, have expanded the goal for this charitable campaign.
I’m thankful you whether you have donated or sent prayers for us!

Update #9 Initial Loss on Removal Issue, Appeal, Attempted Premature Reactivation of Local Bar Case
June 18, 2023

As my work at the Center for Renewing America has hit its stride, I have been focused there on rebuilding my career after the cancellation efforts directed at me by the Democrat party, the January 6 Committee, reporters fond of printing anonymous leaks and framing up totally inaccurate or highlight misleading narratives, etc.

I should have been posting more frequent updates, however, and hope you accept my apologies for not doing so.

This update is meant to catch people up. There was about an 8-month period of quiet but now activity has picked up just as President Trump now faces two indictments, one state and one federal.

On the same day that President Trump was indicted in the Southern District of Florida (June 8, 2023), the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a remand order running against me. As a federal officer who is being attacked by the D.C. Bar for actions and advice I gave confidentially within the Executive Branch of the federal government both inside the U..S. Justice Department and to President Trump (or so I thought -- I didn't count on others breaching their duties of confidentiality, especially not anonymously at first), my lawyers and I believe I am entitled to a federal forum to resolve the Bar claims in a federal Article III court.

After about an 8-month delay and without granting us oral argument so that we could attempt to persuade the District Judge in open court, one Judge of the District Court disagreed and remanded my case back to the local bar process which includes a three-tiered process of (a) a hearing by a 3-member hearing committee (two D.C. lawyers and one non-lawyer D.C. citizen), followed by (b) review by the D.C. Board of Professional Responsibility, and then (c) by the D.C. Court of Appeals (an Article I court).  Ultimately, my fight arising out of the local bar's actions could reach the U.S. Supreme Court as well.

Last Sunday, June 11, 2023, I appealed that District Court ruling to the D.C. Circuit. (Following review there, I could, if necessary, also seek Supreme Court review by that path as well.) Preliminary deadlines have been set in the case running through end of July 2023. But that appeal is only just beginning. Meanwhile, on Friday June 16, 2023, the local bar process sent an order for me to file a response by June 23, 2023 to their attempt to restart the hearing process.

The local D.C. bar may be unaware that, by federal statute, I have an appeal as of right of the June 8, 2023 order up to the D.C. Circuit, making the local bar's June 16, 2023 order premature. We will be attempting to get them to continue holding the case pending my federal Article III appeals. I will keep everyone updated on that. We had already informed the D.C. Court of Appeals that it should continue its abeyance, however. Yet we still received this disappointing hearing committee order on June 16, 2023 despite our pending motion to the D.C. Circuit Appeals.

The forces aligned against President Trump and me are formidable and well-funded. The 65 Project and a ground called LDAD are relentless and no doubt funded by dark money, likely coming from deep pockets, possibly from Silicon Valley or Wall Street or both.

I am now fighting a two-front war to protect my bar license -- one in my D.C. Circuit appeal (an Article III path) and one back before the local bar process (an Article I process).

I am sure you will appreciate that fighting in two places (especially if one of the paths is not placed in abeyance once more) will make defending myself and continuing the fight for being able to disagree with mainstream media and Democrat-dominated views of the 2020 election more expensive than it has been to date. And I want to keep that fight alive. The financial and time burdens the cases place on me and my family, however, are heavy. I need your help to sustain the fight.

Please continue your support of me. I appreciate those who recently made donations as a result of my media appearances and if you saw those who have defended me like Robert Barnes and Viva Frei on their podcast and Steve Bannon and Natalie Winters.

Continue to pray for me and my family as well. We are all very appreciative of that. Over dinner tonight for Father's Day the Clarks will be praying prayers of gratitude for those of you who have donated, sent prayers, or both.

Future updates to come.
