DOJ Subpoenas Two Arizona GOP State Senators

The Washington Post reports:

The Justice Department has subpoenaed two Republican Arizona state senators for information tied to possible correspondence with President Donald Trump’s attorneys as attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election were underway.

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann [photo] and Sen. Kelly Townsend received subpoenas last week, according to Kim Quintero, a spokeswoman for Senate Republicans in Arizona.

The subpoenas came as the Justice Department deepened its investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol to include key Republican players in battleground states. Fann and Townsend are the first state legislators known to have received subpoenas as part of that push.

QAnon nutbag Kelly Townsend last appeared on JMG in June 2022 when she called for ballot drop box “vigilantes.”

In December 2020 she dared Arizona Capitol police to arrest her for refusing to wear a face mask.

In 2019, before the start of pandemic, Townsend appeared here when she declared all vaccination requirements to be “communist” in nature. 

Due to redistricting, Townsend will face fellow QAnon extremist Sen. Wendy Rogers in the GOP primary in August.
