Subpoenas for a top Pennsylvania Republican lawmaker’s “forensic investigation” of the 2020 election appear to be on the horizon.
On Friday, state Sen. Doug Mastriano, chairman of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee who sent letters earlier this month to three counties seeking information and materials related to the 2020 election and 2021 primary, said the trio would want “legal cover” if they comply with his request for the audit, to which Democratic officials in the state have voiced opposition.
The panel will “probably” vote on subpoenas, along with figuring out the chain of custody, sometime in mid-August, Mastriano told One America News Network, noting a meeting needs to be scheduled. He also predicted there would be some sort of “court fight.”
Letters were sent to Philadelphia, York, and Tiago counties earlier this month. Mastriano set a deadline of July 31 and threatened to pursue subpoenas if they did not comply, setting up a process reminiscent of the run-up to the GOP-led Arizona Senate’s audit in Maricopa County. Some officials in these Pennsylvania counties already signaled they would not fully comply with the request as things stood.
