House Select Committee issued subpoenas to individuals, including a conservative lawyer Cleta Mitchell, who was staunchly associated with ex-US President Trump’s campaign and also was in regular communication with Congressional members promoting baseless assertions of voter fraud. Mitchell was on a notorious Jan. 2021 phone-call in which Donald Trump baselessly claimed to Brad Raffensperger (R), Georgia’s State Secretary, that his state was caught up with election fraud and stimulated State Secretary’s team to find just sufficient votes to tilt Mr. Joe Biden’s success in Georgia.
The Select Panel also issued subpoenas to Kenneth Chesebro, Donald Trump’s campaign lawyer, who purportedly helped develop an ineffective strategy to submit alternate certificates of Electoral College vowing to former President electoral support from various battleground states gained by President Joe Biden. However, the House Panel has earlier issued subpoenas to several GOPs who signed these certificates.
‘Bogus elector plot’
Legislators also subpoenaed Katherine Friess, Washington lobbyist, and lawyer. He was involved in the attempts to tilt the Presidential election outcomes, and the panel anticipates she played a part in drafting the executive-order to grab hold of EVMs. Currently, she is suing the panel to prevent them from gaining her phone logs.
Moreover, January 6th Committee issued a subpoena to lawyer Kurt Olsen because he pushed the United States Justice Department in Dec. 2020 to file a sweeping last-ditch legal protest looking for tossing out Biden’s wins in numerous purple states, according to Jan. 6 panel. Olsen purportedly wrote a draft executive-order urging the Justice Department to take voter action.
Another subpoena issued by January 6th Panel went to the former Kansas Attorney General, Phillip Kline. He helped organize a meeting with the former President and three hundred state lawmakers that led to several state representatives sending a letter to Mike Pence, former U.S. Vice President, inspiring him to obstruct the election certification.
A final subpoena went to a correspondent for the far-right, pro-Donald Trump ‘One America News,’ Christina Bobb, who Cable News Network earlier reported was engaged in the bogus elector plot and played a part in the drafting of executive-order for the ex-President that would have authorized national agencies to take hold of EVM’s in multiple states. The panel members anticipate Christina Bobb was present in the war room at the Willard Hotel on 6th JAN led by Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City.
All the six lawyers were told to produce responsive documents to the House Select Panel and cooperate with the committee’s investigation.
