Trump Is About To Be Subpoenaed In Georgia Election Interference Case

Former President Donald Trump is about to see his name on a flurry of subpoenas in the matter of his attempt to change the results of the 2020 election in the state of Georgia, according to a reporter with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Greg Bluestein was a guest on MSNBC Saturday, and he was asked by host Tiffany Cross:

“What I find fascinating in the Fulton County case is the grand jury is set to convene in March, if I’m not mistaken. Any chance Trump could be subpoenaed, and how will she enforce that subpoena, do you think?”

Bluestein responded:

“Yeah, there is a chance the president, the former president can be subpoenaed, but we’re looking even more closely at whether or not Willis subpoenas state officials, like Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who was on the other end of that famous call from former President Trump demanding that he find enough votes to overcome the election vote. If she subpoenas Governor Kemp, who he pressured to call a special election to illegally overturn the results of the election.”

And Bluestein added that state officials could also find their names on subpoenas from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis:

“Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan was also urged to preserve documents that could be crucial to this case because he provides over the state Senate and the state Senate called hearings featuring pro-Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani spouting false conspiracy theories and other lies about the election. And there were some state lawmakers who could be subpoenaed, because they were the ones directly promoting these falsehoods that could be really key to this investigation.”

The main evidence in the case against Trump and his allies, according to Bluestein will be the phone call the former president made to the Georgia Secretary of State in which he called for votes to be added to his totals so he would defeat Joe Biden in the Peach State:

“Clearly that call is the centerpiece of this investigation … but I should say, it’s not the only part of the investigation. The DA’s office has also made clear, it’s looking into other things. Potentially Lindsey Graham, the senator from South Carolina. His own call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, allegedly urging Brad Raffensperger to find other ways to toss out legitimate ballots. President Trump’s role with the federal prosecutor here in Atlanta, who resigned very suddenly, right before the January 5th runoff. There’s a lot of different avenues. She made very clear that this is going to be a is very far-ranging investigation. So we’re carefully watching every step she takes.”

Don’t be surprised if in the next couple of weeks there are dozens of subpoenas for Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham, and lots of top officials in the state of Georgia related to the investigation by D.A. Willis. Discovery alone should be fascinating to watch.
