Justice Department issues 40 subpoenas to Trump associates
The justice department has issued 40 subpoenas to associates of former president donald trump.
It’s for their investigation into january 6th and the 2020 election.
It’s **separate from the house committee’s investigation.
And separate from the justice departments **other investigation into classified documents at trump’s mar-a-lago residence.
Dozens of subpoenas were issued in the span of just one week…
The subpoenas target allies of president trump…
Anywhere from low level aides to senior advisors.
Two of whom recently had their phones seized according to reports.
It’s seen as the most dramatic move yet in that investigation.
Meanwhile…The doj and trump’s legal team are at a standstill over the appointment of a special master to look at the mar-a-lago documents.
The doj has said they’re willing to accept one of trump’s picks — a 78 year old retired judge appointed by president reagan.
