Congressional investigators say former President Donald Trump had “multiple phone calls” on Jan. 6, 2021 with an attorney who represented Texas in its lawsuit to overturn the election.
The revelation that Trump had spoken repeatedly with Kurt Olsen amid his last-ditch push to overturn the election was included in a new round of subpoenas by the Jan. 6 select committee. The latest batch targeted a grab-bag of prominent Trump allies amid his quest to subvert the 2020 presidential election, as well as some of the more minor players who facilitated key events along the way.
The subpoenas also target Cleta Mitchell, a prominent GOP attorney who joined Trump on a call with Georgia officials in early January 2021. Mitchell is already suing to block a select committee subpoena for her phone records.
