Special Counsel Jack Smith Subpoenas Secretaries of State in Michigan and Arizona in Fishing Expedition Related to 2020 Election

Special Counsel Jack Smith issued subpoenas to secretaries of state in Michigan and Arizona as he expands his fishing expedition.

The subpoenas were issued to Jocelyn Benson and Katie Hobbs as part of Jack Smith’s investigation into Trump’s effort to contest the 2020 election.

ABC News reported:

Jack Smith, the special counsel investigating efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, has sent additional grand jury subpoenas to the secretary of state’s offices in Michigan and Arizona — swing states targeted by former President Donald Trump and his allies after his loss in November 2020.

“I can confirm that my office was served a subpoena in connection with the special counsel’s investigation yesterday,” Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson told ABC News in a statement Thursday. “The Department of Justice has asked that we not disclose the contents of the subpoena to prevent harming the investigation, and we will honor that request.”

Officials in Arizona also confirmed their receipt of the subpoena.

Earlier this week it was reported that Jack Smith subpoenaed Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin officials for their communications with Trump in his effort to contest the 2020 election.

Recall, Biden’s corrupt Attorney General Merrick Garland last month appointed Jack Smith to investigate whether Trump committed any crimes.

The special counsel investigation will focus on whether Trump broke the law when he took White House records to Mar-a-Lago and the other part of the probe is related to January 6.

However, Jack Smith has now expanded his investigation and is looking into Trump’s efforts to fight the massive 2020 election fraud operation in key swing states.

The investigation is targeting specific counties in swing states such as Maricopa County, which is ground zero for massive Democrat election fraud.

“The Arizona subpoena was addressed to Maricopa County’s elections department, while the Wisconsin versions were addressed to the Milwaukee and Dane clerks. All seek communications from June 1, 2020, through Jan. 20, 2021.” the Washington Post reported.

The subpoenas, which were issued by Jack Smith and signed by Assistant US Attorney Matt Burke, are dated November 22 – just days after Merrick Garland appointed Jack Smith as special counsel which means he wasted no time getting to work.
