Former President Donald Trump’s legal woes are piling up as Special Counsel Jack Smith recently issued a subpoena to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
The subpoena which was dated Friday was received on Monday by Raffensperger’s office. As part of the subpoena, Raffensperger is expected to hand in “any and all communications” involving Trump and his allies from June 1, 2020, to January 10, 2021. Trump reportedly called Raffensperger a few days before the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and demanded that he “find” the necessary votes so that the 2020 election results in Georgia could be overturned.
In the recent midterm elections, the former president endorsed a GOP primary challenger to Raffensperger. However, the incumbent was able to quickly secure his position and be unaffected by the challenge.
Smith’s subpoena to Raffensperger specifically calls for all communications between him and the Trump campaign, Trump himself, and several aides and lawyers to be handed in. Campaign officials Justin Clark and Bill Stepien and lawyers John Eastman, Boris Epshteyn, Lin Wood, Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, are explicitly named in the subpoena.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) appointed Smith as Special counsel last month. Smith is called to oversee the federal investigations relating to Trump and the attempt to overturn the 2020 election, as well as the case relating to the documents recovered from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

One thing I’ve noticed is that often there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the banks intentions when talking about property foreclosures. One fable in particular would be the fact the bank wants your house. The financial institution wants your hard earned dollars, not your property. They want the money they loaned you along with interest. Staying away from the bank will simply draw a new foreclosed summary. Thanks for your publication.
