Jan. 6 committee can see phone records of Kelli Ward

The House committee investigating the US Capitol insurrection has subpoenaed six individuals over efforts to falsely declare Donald Trump the winner of the 2020 election in several swing states.

A federal judge ruled Thursday that the select Congressional committee investigating the riot at the US Capitol on Jan 6, 2021 may subpoena the phone records of the head of Arizona’s Republican Party.

The Select Committee, in January, sent a subpoena asking for phone records of Kelli Ward, the chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, that would have covered activity from November 2020 through January 2021.

That span of time would include when Ward convened an uncertified and unauthorized slate of electors to grant Donald Trump the state’s electoral votes even though he lost Arizona.

Those fake electoral votes were sent to Congress for members to consider counting during its Jan. 6, 2021, session, which was interrupted for hours after the US Capitol was breached by rampaging Trump supporters.
