The Arizona Mirror reports, The FBI subpoenaed Karen Fann and Kelly Townsend for information on the January 6 insurrection:

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann and Mesa Republican Senator Kelly Townsend were subpoenaed by the FBI for an on-going investigation into President Donald Trump’s alleged pressure campaign on state officials to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

“President Fann received a FOIA in the form of a subpoena by the FBI as part of the Biden Administration’s political theatrics as they look into ‘January 6,’” Kim Quintero, Director of Communications for Arizona Senate Republicans said in a statement to the Arizona Mirror. “Nonetheless, President Fann is fully cooperating in releasing whatever emails and text messages they are requesting.”

Fann, a Prescott Republican [Election Denier], hired and helped lead the GQP sham “fraudit” of Maricopa County’s 2020 Presidential election results. She was also in communication with a number of Trump allies such as OANN correspondent Christina Bobb — who also worked for the Trump campaign and sent emails to Fann on behalf of Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani in December 2020 that included witness declarations, statements and expert testimony. Bobb’s non-profit would also supply volunteers for the “audit” itself as well as funding.

Quintero also confirmed that [QAnon Queen Sen.] Townsend, a staunch supporter of the “audit” efforts and bogus election fraud claims, was issued a similar subpoena. Quintero said she is not aware of any other senator who wsa issued a subpoena.

“We have no reason to believe (Fann and Townsend) will be called to testify in Washington D.C.,” Quintero said. “The documents expressly say that she is not to comment on the matter, so this is all we can release at this time.”

I don’t know, could it have something to do with this?

Rep. Jake Hoffman is one the fake Arizona GQP electors under investigation by the Department of Justice. UPDATED Trump’s fake electors: Here’s the full list (scroll down to Arizona).

And how in God’s name is Election Denier extraordinaire Sen. Wendy Rogers and the other Arizona legislators who signed this letter not yet subpoeaned by the FBI?

The Arizona Mirror continues:

The Arizona Capitol Times reported that Fann said there is a “list” of lawmakers who received a subpoena.  [So maybe they have been subpoenaed?]

A Republican spokesman for the Arizona House of Representatives said he was unaware whether any members of that chamber had also been subpoenaed.

The subpoenas follow a string of other subpoenas to other high profile Arizona politicos who have found themselves enmeshed in election fraud claims and other legal battles.

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward was issued a subpoena by the Department of Justice last week along with other Arizonans who signed onto a document that would have sent fake electors to Congress on Jan. 6. [see video above.]

Politico first broke the news of Ward and her husband Michael being subject of a subpoena, citing an unnamed source who was familiar with the case but could not speak publicly. Alexander Kolodin, the Wards’ attorney and an attorney for both the Arizona Senate and Cyber Ninjas, confirmed to the Arizona Republic that he was representing them in the matter.

The Washington Post also reported that Arizonans Nancy Cottle and Loraine Pellegrino, who signed the false elector document as chair and secretary, were also served subpoenas in the matter.[see video above.]

This is not the first subpoena that Cottle, Pellegrino or Ward have faced. All three have been issued subpoenas by the House Select Committee investigating the riot on Jan. 6 at the Capitol, with Ward’s phone records specifically being sought by the committee. The Wards have filed a countersuit on the initial subpoena by the committee in federal court in Phoenix, which is still pending.

The document at the heart of the matter, which led the DOJ to issue a subpoena, involves 11 Arizona Republicans who met at the state party headquarters to falsely declare themselves the state’s official presidential electors.

The document created a second set of electors for former President Donald J. Trump and included former and currently elected members of the Arizona legislature.

Rep. Jake Hoffman, R-Queen Creek, was one of those electors. Hoffman would later go on to own a business that looks and acts identical to the email campaign platform utilized by Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to email 29 Arizona lawmakers asking them not to certify the election results.

Former Rep. Anthony Kern, who was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, was also one of the electors, along with Senate Candidate Jim Lamon and Turning Point Action head Tyler Bowyer.

The subpoena appears to be part of a larger investigation into Trump allies and associates and their role in the Jan. 6 riot.

Donald Trump’s Coup Plot is the largest seditious conspiracy in the history of the United States. It includes hundreds of Republican members of Congress, state legislators, and third parties (lots of lawyers) asffiliated with the Republican Party and/or the Trump campaign, and even at the granular level of local election officials in several states.

As I have said many times, The Party Of Trump Is A Criminal Enterprise Led By A Third-Rate Mafia ‘Don’ Trump:

I will reiterate what I have said many times before. The Party of Trump is a criminal enterprise led by a third-rate mafia “Don” Trump. They are all accomplices, coconspirators and accessories who aid and abet his criminality and corruption. There is not a patriot among them. They put fealty to their “Dear Leader” above all else, including loyalty to their country and our national security, and their oaths of office to defend the Constitution. They reject the rule of law and are amoral. It is a betrayal of the faith of the American people in our constitutional government. They must all be held accountable.

If I was one of the DOJ prosecutors investigating this case, I would be looking at a RICO charge to prosecute all of the Republican Party officials involved in this coup d’etat and seize the assets of all the Republican Party organizations and Trump campaign organizations and third parties involved in this insurrection to put them out of business for good, just as the DOJ would do for any criminal enterprise or mafia organization.
