The U.S. House Select Committee investigating the deadly Capitol riot, said it had subpoenaed Tuesday, a half-dozen people who had knowledge of or contributed in efforts to send ‘fake alternate electors’ to D.C. for Donald Trump, the former US President, in the 2020 election.
Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson said that the January 6th Committee is seeking out information about attempts to send bogus slates of alternate electors to D.C. and change the results of the Nov. 3 Presidential contest. Moreover, Thompson said they’re looking for responsive documents from officials of the campaign, and other people in various US states who they anticipate have linked information regarding the organizing and execution of those intentions.
The Select Committee demands info on efforts to send false “alternate electors” and otherwise interfere with election certification.
The Select Committee issued 6 subpoenas:
•Michael A. Roman
•Gary Michael Brown
•Douglas V. Mastriano
•Mark W. Finchem

The House Panel has also stated it subpoenaed in quest of records and testimony to Gary Michael Brown, the deputy director for Trump’s re-election movement, and Michael Roman, who served as the director for the said campaign. Among others being summoned are the Arizonian GOP Kelli Ward, who already has sued to obstruct the panel from acquiring her phone details, and a state Senator in Pennsylvania, Doug Mastriano, an open-source of the unfounded assertions that there was extensive election fraud in the 2020 election.
Furthermore, Ward, a fervent supporter of ex-US President, who made efforts to tilt Joe Biden’s electoral success in Arizona, and her husband were part of a ‘fake slate of electors’ from the state.
The Panel Chairman also noted in a Tuesday’s letter that during the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection, she said on Twitter that the U.S. Congress is adjourned. Therefore, send the elector choice back to the legislatures.
Ward, investigators say, had a direct line to Trump and the two discussed election fraud.
Further, she remitted a slate of electors for AZ unsanctioned by the state. Ward even tweeted: Congress is adjourned. Send the elector choice back to the legislatures.

The House Select Committee also issued subpoenas to two other officials in the US states carried by Mr. Biden as he overpowered GOP Donald Trump’s bid for re-election: A former member of the Michigan House of Representatives, Lara Cox, and an Arizona state Sen. Mark Finchem.
The new subpoenas announced almost a month after the Jan.6 Panel subpoenaed fourteen individuals over the submission of bogus Electoral College permits announcing Donald Trump the champion of Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Nevada.
Mr. Thompson stated the panel wants to realize about assertions of Finchem that the 2020 election was engineered and his communications with planners and organizers of the ‘Stop the Steal’ demonstration on 6th January. In addition, the US House of Representatives Committee wishes to discover more regarding Finchem’s remarks that he’d visited D.C. to produce an evidence book and letter of Mr. Mike Pence presenting key evidence of voter scam in Arizona.
