Two Republican Congressmen have been subpoenaed as part of a probe into a scheme that attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state of Arizona.

According to a Politico report, the investigation by Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes is similar in nature to those in other states Donald Trump lost, where the former president and his allies attempted to advance slates of pro-Trump electors for recognition in the Electoral College.

Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar have been ordered to testify before a grand jury, noting:

There is no indication that Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, who is leading the probe, is considering bringing criminal charges against either lawmaker. And it’s unclear whether Mayes has insisted on enforcing the subpoenas against the lawmakers, who may have legal bases to resist testifying.

But the subpoenas themselves — in conjunction with a series of other aggressive recent moves — show that Mayes, a Democrat, has cast a far wider net in her probe than previously understood.

Politico said it reviewed a letter dated Feb. 16 from Gosar to Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) apprising the speaker of the subpoena.

The pair of GOP congressmen mark the latest Trump allies to be subpoenaed in Mayes’ Investigation. Last month, she subpoenaed former Trump campaign aide Michael Roman.

Electors in Michigan and Nevada, where similar schemes were attempted, have already been indicted in those states.

  1. A bunch of garbage. The election was stolen. Since when can’t the american public, officials say what they think or fight back for what they think is wrong? This is just another attempt by the Biden white house to take Trump off the ballot which has failed. Biden is destoying this country & should be removed as president.
