Federal agents searched former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark‘s home in Lorton, Virginia, on Wednesday morning, according to officials.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C., can confirm there was law enforcement activity in that area yesterday,” a spokesperson said. They were unable to comment on any further details.
