Jan 6th House Select Committee Subpoenas 6 More in Connection With Fake Electors Scheme

The House committee investigating the U.S. Capitol insurrection subpoenaed six more individuals Tuesday over the efforts to falsely declare Donald Trump the winner of the 2020 election in several swing states.

The panel is seeking testimony and records from several former Trump campaign members as well as state elected officials, who they say had knowledge of or participated in efforts to send false “alternate electors” in seven of the states President Joe Biden rightfully won.

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 07: Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., read the final certification of Electoral College votes cast in November’s presidential election during a joint session of Congress, after working through the night, at the Capitol on January 7, 2021 in Washington, DC.

The individuals subpoenaed include Michael Roman and Gary Michael Brown, who served as directors for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. The committee believes the two men reportedly promoted allegations of election fraud as well as encouraged state legislators to appoint false slates of electors. The other four individuals include current and former state lawmakers in Arizona and Pennsylvania.

The latest subpoenas come more than a month after the committee issued subpoenas to 14 people over the submission of false Electoral College certificates declaring Trump the winner of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

 

 

“The Select Committee is seeking information about efforts to send false slates of electors to Washington and change the outcome of the 2020 election,” Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said in a statement. “We’re seeking records and testimony from former campaign officials and other individuals in various states who we believe have relevant information about the planning and implementation of those plans.”

Despite the fake electors scandal in their own state, two Republican lawmakers from Wisconsin are calling for the legally impossible act of overturning the results. President Joe Biden won the state by a margin of just over 21,000 votes.
