Donald Trump latest: Emails show Trump officials & Mark Meadows 'pressured Justice Department to overturn election loss'

NEW documents released Tuesday reveal how Trump officials and Mark Meadows pressured the Justice Department to overturn the results of the election Trump lost.

The docs were released by Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee and include interviews like one with former White House chief of staff Meadows, who reportedly pressured the Justice Department to investigate claims of election fraud that were unfounded, according to CBS News.

The release comes just a day after Trump's 75th birthday when many of his fans sent the former president well wishes.

To celebrate his birthday, Trump's PAC urged donors to "surprise" the former president with donations on his birthday.

The move also comes after Republican Tom Rice launched a blistering attack on Trump over the weekend.

Rice told The Washington Post that Trump launched "a frontal assault on the Constitution."

    TRUMP CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY BY REITERATING 2020 ELECTION FRAUD

    Donald Trump celebrated his 75th birthday on Monday by issuing a statement blasting the 2020 election as a “scam” and fuming at Republican lawmakers for standing against him.   

    The former president put pressure on Pennsylvania Republicans as he accused them of being “stupid, corrupt, or naive” and acting like a “radical left Democrat” by refusing to back his allegations of election fraud. 

    He issued a warning to the lawmakers as he repeated calls for an audit of the state’s votes and claimed that if the GOP state senators continued along “this path of resistance,” they would be voted out of office. 

    Trump also insisted again that what “went on in Philadelphia” be “exposed.”

    “Why is State Senator Jake Corman of Pennsylvania fighting so hard that there will not be a Forensic Audit of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam?” Trump said in a statement released on Monday afternoon. 

    “Corman is fighting as though he were a Radical Left Democrat, saying that a Forensic Audit of Pennsylvania not take place. 

    “Why is Senator David Argall playing the same game? Are they stupid, corrupt, or naive? What is going on?” Trump questioned. 

    “Other State Senators want this Forensic Audit to take place – immediately. I feel certain that if Corman continues along this path of resistance, with its lack of transparency, he will be primaried and lose by big numbers. 

    “What went on in Philadelphia and other areas of the state must be properly and legally exposed. If it is not, just like with open borders, we won’t have a country anymore!" he concluded.
