Key members of Donald Trump’s inner circle have been subpoenaed by the grand jury in Atlanta, Georgia as it continues its criminal investigation of the former president’s interference in the 2020 election.
On Tuesday, Trump’s former attorney Rudy Giuliani, South Carolina Sen Lindsey Graham and attorney Jenna Ellis were all issued subpoenas in relation to the case.
The Daily Mail reports:
Copies of the subpoenas, signed off by Fulton Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney and obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, also list conservative lawyer and activist Cleta Mitchell as well as attorney and podcast host Jacki Pick.
Mitchell advised Trump during the infamous phone conversation with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Trump used the call to urge him to ‘find’ 11,780 votes – enough to give him the state.
Raffensperger also said he was contacted by Graham 10 days after the election asking if he was had the power to reject mailed ballots in certain counties.
Graham later denied that he was doing anything improper, and was simply asking for information to understand how the mail ballots were verified.
The grand jury is reportedly focused on three appearances by Giuliani where he testified before Georgia lawmakers in the aftermath of the election.
