Multiple news outlets are reporting that former Vice President Mike Pence has been subpoenaed by special counsel Jack Smith, who is overseeing two Justice Department probes into disgraced former President Donald Trump. ABC News was the first to report the development, citing “multiple sources familiar with the matter.”
Both The New York Times and CNN report that the subpoena is related to Trump’s efforts to overturn the election.
Jack Smith was appointed in November by Attorney General Merrick Garland to oversee the investigations into Trump’s involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection and his mishandling of classified documents since leaving the office.
