Two Top Trump Political Aides Among Those Subpoenaed in Jan. 6 Case

Quote:
The Justice Department has subpoenaed two former top White House political advisers under President Donald J. Trump as part of a widening investigation related to Mr. Trump’s post-election fund-raising and plans for so-called fake electors, according to people briefed on the matter.

Brian Jack, the final White House political director under Mr. Trump, and Stephen Miller, Mr. Trump’s top speechwriter and a senior policy adviser, were among more than a dozen people connected to the former president to receive subpoenas from a federal grand jury this week.

The subpoenas seek information in connection with the Save America political action committee and the plan to submit slates of electors pledged to Mr. Trump from swing states that were won by Joseph R. Biden Jr. in the 2020 election. Mr. Trump and his allies promoted the idea that competing slates of electors would justify blocking or delaying certification of Mr. Biden’s Electoral College win during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, 2021.
A lawyer for Mr. Miller declined to comment. Mr. Jack, who remains an adviser to Mr. Trump as well as to Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the House Republican leader, and several other House Republicans, declined to comment.

A subpoena does not indicate someone is under investigation, but the Justice Department may send one to people from whom it is seeking information.

The subpoenas were issued to a wide range of people who either worked in the White House or on the Trump campaign, including senior officials like the campaign’s chief financial officer; personal aides to Mr. Trump; and the former chief of staff to Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter who also served as one of his senior advisers.

The Save America PAC was formed soon after Election Day in 2020, as Mr. Trump aggressively raised money on his baseless claims of an election “stolen” through widespread voting fraud.

Among the recipients of subpoenas from a grand jury sitting in Washington are relatively junior aides from the White House and Mr. Trump’s 2020 campaign. While the subpoenas asked for information concerning the Save America PAC, they also sought communications with several pro-Trump lawyers — like Kenneth Chesebro — who helped devise the electors plan.
Numerous subpoenas focused solely on the fake elector plan were sent to Republican state lawmakers and state Republican officials allied with Mr. Trump starting this spring. Those subpoenas were signed Thomas P. Windom, a veteran federal prosecutor, who has been leading the inquiry into the scheme.

At least one of the new subpoenas bore the name of a veteran fraud prosecutor, and still another had the name of a third federal prosecutor, Mary L. Dohrmann, who has been working in recent months with Mr. Windom.

Mr. Jack’s role in the White House was generally confined to advising Mr. Trump on races further down the ballot. He has not been paid by Save America.

Mr. Miller has been paid by Save America since leaving the White House, but he is not known to have had a planning role in the electors scheme or the fund-raising efforts, although he did discuss electors on television.

On Dec. 14, 2020 — the day the Electoral College met to cast its votes for president — Mr. Miller appeared on Fox News and announced that state lawmakers in several key swing states were in the process of sending “an alternate slate of electors” to Congress.

FAKE SUBPOENAS!! ! POLITICALLY MOTIVATED WITCH HUNT! ! ! ! I PARDONED EVERYONE ALREADY!! ! !!1!1!!


Now that that's out of the way, we're in for near endless entertainment as this band of criminals gets what's coming to them for believing they could go on a crime spree with complete impunity. Seems they had far too much faith in one of trumplestiltskin's many coup attempt methods succeeding and assumed they'd be protected members of the red hat brigade by their orange leaderbean. Whoopsie-doodle! :lol:

Now let's see if the Naziferatu cooperates, or if he gets charged with contempt of congress, too.

DOJ seizes Team Trump phones as part of intensifying Jan. 6 probe

Quote:
When it comes to the many ongoing scandals surrounding Trump World, it’s tempting to think the Mar-a-Lago controversy is the most serious. After all, the former president stands accused of stealing classified materials, refusing to give them back, and obstructing the retrieval process. There’s an ongoing criminal investigation, and indictments are a distinct possibility.

But by some measures, the most dramatic scrutiny of Donald Trump and his team remains the Justice Department’s criminal probe of the Jan. 6 attack and the Republicans’ efforts to overturn the election results.

For months, there was ample speculation about whether investigators were moving forward with any vigor at all. As the latest New York Times reporting suggests, those questions continue to get answers.

Justice Department officials have seized the phones of two top advisers to former President Donald J. Trump and blanketed his aides with about 40 subpoenas in a substantial escalation of the investigation into his efforts to subvert the 2020 election, people familiar with the inquiry said on Monday. The seizure of the phones, coupled with a widening effort to obtain information from those around Mr. Trump after the 2020 election, represent some of the most aggressive steps the department has taken thus far in its criminal investigation into the actions that led to the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.

According to the Times’ reporting, much of which has been confirmed by NBC News, federal agents executed court-approved search warrants, taking the phones of at least two people — Trump lawyer Boris Epshteyn and campaign strategist Mike Roman — while also issuing subpoenas to a variety of figures, including Dan Scavino, Trump’s former social media director, and Bernie Kerik.

The subpoenas, according to the Times, were related to the investigation into the fake electors scheme.

I think DeSatan knows Naziferatu could only be a negative for his campaign. Few people like a racist bully, while other racist bullies would hold Miller's Jewishness against him.

He obviously doesn't have any official membership, but that doesn't stop him from harboring all the Nazi bigotry against non-whites.

Limiting non-white immigration, denying citizenship to immigrants in need of public assistance, specifically caging the children of illegals to discourage immigration, the Muslim ban, and mocking the poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty, were all his ideas while working under Trump. Miller's bigotry is well known since he worked for Steve Bannon at Breitbart, which is why he got the position under Trump.

So basically the usual complaint from the left that border control is nazi fascist racist.

Plus all the other disreputable things he and Trump had done to stop "the browning of America." How is that defensible?

Plus all the crazy white supremacist stuff miller was known to write online for breitbart, on forums, in emails etc. The guy is a hardcore white supremacist - that's why he was hired into his role & turned loose to implement anti (non-white) immigration policies.

Waiting to hear from matrix how any of that is defensible. (hint: It wasn't then and still isn't now.)

I'd have to separate fact from left-wing propaganda to make a determination.

Then by all means, look up his record. Just don't be swayed by the right trying to minimize or justify it all.
