Not your Mama's subpoenas

https://statuskuo.substack.com/p/these-arent-the-subpoenas-were-used?s=r

These Aren’t the Subpoenas We’re Used To Seeing

'On May 26, two FBI special agents arrived at the home of former White House aide to Donald Trump, Peter Navarro, and banged on his front door in the early morning hours...The subpoena asks Navarro to produce any documents he has related to the attack on the Capitol last January. It also asks for any documents that would shed light on his refusal to testify to congressional investigators in February, as well as any contacts or communications with the former president or his attorneys related to January 6. Finally, and tellingly, it also demands Navarro appear before a federal grand jury on Thursday, June 2.....That the grand jury has now reached into Trump’s inner circle of advisors and demanded Navarro personally produce documents and appear to testify is a significant escalation.

A separate but important subpoena was issued by the Fulton County grand jury that was recently specially empaneled to investigate election fraud, conspiracy and possible racketeering by the Trump White House in the state of Georgia...One of the key witnesses to efforts by the former administration to illegally overturn the result of the Georgia presidential election is Brad Raffensperger, the current secretary of state.

Will the subpoenas prove more effective than what we’ve seen so far? Most likely. Subpoenas from the courts carry far more weight and are far more difficult to oppose than ones from a congressional committee, which must rely upon the Justice Department to move to enforce them. A refusal to appear after a grand jury has called you to testify can land you in jail for contempt of court far faster.'

3. What are the chances...

any documents or communications between Trump and Navarro still exist?

We know Trump's penchant for flushing everything down his gold plated shitter, and not leaving any electronic trail (curiously similar to all mob bosses) so does Navarro have anything remaining?

8. racketeering is one of the hooks you use when others are hard to prove

and I'd settle for that if it kept is smarmy ass out of politics until he drops.

Hell, his idiot followers would vote for him even if he were dead.
