Benson: SOS served with election interference plot subpoena
Benson’s office has been served with a subpoena by the special counsel investigating the January 6th attack on the US Capitol
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office has been served with a subpoena by the special counsel investigating the January 6th attack on the US Capitol and former President Donald Trump’s attempts to reverse the results of the November 2020 election.
Benson confirmed the subpoena, which was delivered Wednesday, via a statement issued by her office. The statement says, “The Department of Justice has asked that we not discuss the contents of the subpoena to prevent harming the investigation and we will honor that request.”
The Washington Post and MLive have reported special counsel subpoenas have also been served seeking records of communications between unnamed Wayne County officials and the former president as well some of his aides and associates. Two Wayne County canvassers were contacted by Trump in a failed effort to stop the certification of election results.
