DOJ Subpoenas Election Officials in Three More States

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has issued more subpoenas to election officials in the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s efforts to stop certification of the 2020 presidential election results. Last week, the Washington Post reported that Jack Smith, the special counsel overseeing the DOJ’s investigation into Trump’s abuses of power, subpoenaed officials in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Now, it appears that effort has expanded to include Georgia, Nevada and New Mexico.

The subpoenas include top state officials, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) and New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver (D), as well as the elections division in Clark County, Nevada, home to Las Vegas.
