While Donald Trump continues to stave off the slings and arrows of the J6 committee, with their outrageous assumptions and their executive privilege entrapment scheme still in full effect, another investigation into his behavior surrounding the 2020 election is picking up steam.
Down in the Peach State, where Trump was recorded having a lively discussion about election security with several members of the Georgia electoral team, a grand jury is now seeking information from a number of the former president’s close confidantes.
A Fulton County grand jury has issued a slew of subpoenas to seven people, including Rudy Giuliani, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and conservative lawyer John Eastman, as part of an investigation surrounding former President Trump.Advertisement - story continues below
In addition to Giuliani, Graham and Eastman, who helped develop the legal case for overturning the 2020 election, podcast host Jacki Pick Deason and campaign legal advisers Kenneth Chesebro, Jenna Ellis and Cleta Mitchell also received subpoenas.
It appears as though Georgia’s litigators were also concerned with the as-of-yet unverified “fake electors” conspiracy theory.
In the subpoena for Eastman, it noted that the conservative lawyer had been involved in a “fake elector” scheme aimed at overturning President Biden’s victory in the state.
Donald Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in the case, and has himself not yet been subpoenaed by the grand jury.
