Post-election challengers targeted in broad DOJ probe
Among the dozens of grand jury subpoenas served in recent weeks, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has initiated a criminal investigation into allegations of fraud in the 2020 presidential election, including the appointment of alternate elector slates and disputes over election results.
First obtained by Red State, the subpoena dates Sept. 6 and orders recipients to testify before a federal grand jury. A copy of every communication related to post-election challenges is also required, including theories about election fraud, whether then-Vice President Mike Pence changed the election outcome, and strategies for ensuring Donald Trump is certified winner of 2020.
Trump and supporters have cast doubt on the election outcome in seven contested states, according to the subpoena, which seeks documents and communications from Trump's top advisers and state electors, local officials, and dozens more people.
