The investigative move is just the latest sign of the widening probe that stemmed from the January 6 起义. Federal investigators are pursuing information in all seven battleground states that former President Donald Trump lost and where his campaign convened fake electors, a person briefed on the matter told CNN.
Both of the Wards acted as so-called alternate electors in Arizona. The source also confirmed that two others involved in the effort, Nancy Cottle and Loraine Pellegrino, also received subpoenas.
Alexander Kolodin, an attorney for the Wards, 告诉CNN: “This is an investigation based on allegations that our clients engaged in core First Amendment-protected activity, 特别, petitioning Congress for redress of grievances.”
