Donald Trump and his closest allies have long complained of the Department of Justice’s alleged “fishing expeditions”, and with good reason.
You see, virtually every one of Trump’s actions as President now appears to be under some sort of DOJ-ensconced investigation, most of which appear to have a limitless scope and a never-ending parade of political repercussions attached to them.
The latest massive, blind harvesting of information comes to us in the form of several dozen subpoenas that have now been issued to those within Donald Trump’s inner circle.
More than 30 people associated with former President Donald Trump and alleged efforts to influence the 2020 election results have received federal grand jury subpoenas, four sources told CBS News.
The subpoenas, many of which were issued last week, mark a significant escalation in the Justice Department’s investigation into origins of theand other alleged attempts to stop the transfer of power to then-President-elect Joe Biden. One source familiar with the case characterized the investigation as huge.
These subpoenas themselves are not singularly focused. Rather, they seek information on a smorgasbord of Trump’s alleged controversies.
The Justice Department is examining how money was raised and spent on alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election; efforts to submit fake “alternate” electors to Congress from states lost by Trump; and the “Stop The Steal” rally held at the Ellipse, adjacent to White House grounds, on Jan. 6, just before the Capitol riot.
The subpoenas run the gamut from well-known White House fixtures such as Stephen Miller, to unknown poll workers and and RNC contractors, indicating that the DOJ is simply “spraying and praying”, hoping to catch something that they can use to denigrate the former President.
