DOJ special counsel investigating Trump serves Georgia secretary of state with subpoena

In a Jan. 2 phone call, Trump had suggested Raffensperger “find” the votes needed to give him a victory in Georgia.

The subpoena, which is dated Friday and was received by Raffensperger’s office on Monday, follows others served last week in several states and counties. Like those other places, Georgia was a target for Trump and his allies as they sought to undo its loss in the 2020 election.

The special counsel is seeking ‘all communications in any form’ between June 1, 2020 and January 20, 2021, ‘to, from or involving’ Trump, his campaign, attorneys and aides, including former campaign officials such as Bill Stepien and Justin Clark and attorneys John Eastman, Boris Epshteyn, L. Lin Wood, Sidney Powell and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, according to the subpoena, which was obtained by the ‘Associated Press.

Efforts by Trump and his associates to undo his loss in Georgia are currently the subject of a separate investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in Atlanta. A special grand jury seated to assist in that investigation has heard from dozens of witnesses, including a number of high-profile Trump allies, over the past six months and is expected to conclude its work soon.

Among other things, Willis is investigating the January 2, 2021 phone call between Trump and Raffensperger.

It was not immediately clear whether any counties in Georgia had also received subpoenas from the special counsel.

In the weeks following the 2020 election, Trump focused in part on Fulton County, which includes most of the city of Atlanta, making unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud. But the county had not received a subpoena Monday morning, a spokesperson said.
