As Trump pushed for probes of 2020 election, he called acting AG Rosen almost daily

  President Donald Trump called his acting attorney general nearly every day at the end of last year to alert him to claims of voter fraud or alleged improper vote counts in the 2020 election, according to two people familiar with the conversations.
