In the never-ending legal battle surrounding the questioning of the results of the 2020 elections, the beat continues.

It’s now hitting two members in Congress.

Investigators are investigating alternate electors’ questions regarding the results of the 2020 elections. They’ve also issued subpoenas for two people close to Donald Trump, the former president.

The subpoenas to Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, which have not previously been reported, ordered the two Arizona Republicans to testify before a grand jury.

Politico reports, there is no indication of any criminal investigation involving either Congressman, and both may have legal reasons to refuse to testify. This news will undoubtedly make the left happy.

The Attorney General of the State has not made it clear whether or not they will comply with the law.

It appears that Democratic Attorney General Kris Mayes is trying to bring in as many people as possible.

The details of Mayes’ investigation have remained a mystery, in part due to Arizona’s unusually strict – and, according to some experts, constitutionally questionable – state law that prohibits witnesses from disclosing they have been summoned.

Jared Keenan is the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona. He said, “Getting a subpoena for a testimony in front of a Grand Jury was rare, and I don’t think anyone has ever challenged the secrecy laws.”

Seven states had alternate electors, and in Georgia, Michigan, and Nevada, prosecutors are pursuing criminal charges against these electors. Mayes sent out many subpoenas and could be moving toward a prosecution of her in Arizona.
