Former White House consultant Steve Bannon is claiming that at least 35 allies of President Donald Trump had their homes raided and electronics seized from the FBI just this week.
Bannon stated the DOJ operation had been partially referenced in the Washington Post.
It sounds like he was referring to the following article.
The particular Justice Department is looking for details about the formation plus operation of Donald Trump’s post-presidential political operation, according to three people familiar with the particular probe, sending a raft of subpoenas in a significant expansion of the criminal investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol and efforts to overturn the final results of the 2020 election.
A federal grand jury sent subpoenas on Wednesday to a wide range of former advertising campaign and White House staffers asking for information about the Conserve America PAC, according to the individuals, who spoke on the problem of anonymity to discuss a continuous probe. They described the particular subpoenas as broad, searching for all documents and marketing communications about opening the PAC and every dollar raised plus spent.
One or more of the subpoenas also required information about the plan to post slates of phony electors claiming Trump won critical states, including all communications with several key attorneys and advisers involved in the work, one of the people said. These people include Rudy Giuliani, Boris Epshteyn, Bruce Marks, Victoria Toensing and Joseph DiGenova, this person said.
Another one of the three people, who has direct understanding of one of the subpoenas, said the particular document was “ broad ranging” and included multiple other categories of information, but this person declined to explain them. FBI agents served at least some of the subpoenas in person on Wednesday, one of the people with knowledge said.
Spokesmen for Trump and the Justice Department did not instantly respond to a request for opinion. Some of the details of the subpoenas were reported by FONEM and the New York Times.
Epshteyn declined in order to comment. So did Toensing, who is married to DiGenova. Giuliani did not immediately react to requests for comment.
Bannon themselves was frog marched on Thursday for supposedly defrauding investors through the “ All of us Build the Wall” marketing campaign and charged with cash laundering, conspiracy and fraud.
Bannon pleaded not guilty upon all charges and stated the feds will have to eliminate him to shut him up.
