The Justice Department has issued more subpoenas in a probe tied to a fraudulent elector scheme aimed at rejecting President Biden’s 2020 presidential win, multiple news outlets reported.

The Washington Post, which was first to report the news, said the people who were issued subpoenas included Thomas Lane, who was involved in former President Trump’s campaign in New Mexico and Arizona, and Brad Carver, a Georgia lawyer who allegedly considered himself to be an elector for the former president.  

Officials with the FBI confirmed to the Post that court-authorized law enforcement action had been taken by agents in different places. The addresses of those targeted by federal agents were tied to the men, according to public records, though the FBI did not identify those targeted specifically.

A campaign aide for Trump in Michigan, Shawn Flynn, also received a subpoena, The New York Times reported, citing people familiar. People familiar told the Post that Georgia Republican Party chairman and alleged Trump elector David Shafer also received a subpoena.
