Former Justice Dept. officials testimony sought in Clark hearingThe top two U.S. Justice Department officials in the waning days of Donald Trump's presidency will be asked to testify publicly in a legal disciplinary hearing against their former colleague Jeffrey Bossert Clark, who allegedly tried to help Trump overturn his election loss.

Hamilton "Phil" Fox, the head of the D.C. bar's Office of Disciplinary Counsel, disclosed his plans to call former Acting Attorney General Jeff Rosen and former Acting Deputy Attorney General Rich Donoghue as witnesses during a D.C. bar ethics committee hearing on Thursday.

Clark, who is also facing a parallel 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 the charging document filed by Fox's office.

He has denied wrongdoing, citing 54 different defenses, some of which also claim that the D.C. Bar lacks jurisdiction to bring the case against him.
