Letitia James wants Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl to drop a dime on whoever funded their pro-Donald Trump robocall schemes. The state of New York’s Attorney General’s office has subpoenaed two pro-Trump internet trolls in relation to a possible voter suppression scheme.
Jacob Wohl, 22, and Jack Burkman, 58, have been subpoenaed by Attorney General Letitia James in relation to voter intimidation using a targeted robocall. Wohl and Burkman were already indicted in Ohio and Michigan, and the two have also been named in a federal civil suit in the Southern District of New York.
The three subpoenas, each signed Dec. 22 and obtained by Salon, target Wohl, Burkman and Burkman’s consulting firm, Burkman & Associates. Prosecutors are seeking information about who funded the robocalls, including about the source of funds in the firm’s Bank of America account, as well as any relevant communications.
More broadly, investigators also want to see all documents concerning Project 1599, Burkman’s organization, which not only claims credit for the calls in the recordings but has also been linked to a number of other political stunts the duo has carried out over the years.
