Jan 6 Committee subpoenas fake Trump electors: Mapping the conspirators.

As the Jan 6 committee uncovers more details on the conspirators and fake electors, a network map helps keep track of the investigation.

This map has been updated as of Jan 29th with details of the 14 people who were part of bogus slates of electors for President Donald J. Trump. Network maps help put a face to a name and see how different people are interconnected. This map was created with the free Kumu app.

“The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack issued 14 subpoenas on Friday to people who falsely claimed to be electors for President Donald J. Trump in the 2020 election in states that were actually won by Joseph R. Biden Jr., digging deeper into Mr. Trump’s efforts to overturn the results. The subpoenas target individuals who met and submitted false Electoral College certificates in seven states won by President Biden: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“The select committee is seeking information about attempts in multiple states to overturn the results of the 2020 election, including the planning and coordination of efforts to send false slates of electors to the National Archives,” Representative Bennie Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi and the chairman of the committee, said in a statement. “We believe the individuals we have subpoenaed today have information about how these so-called alternate electors met and who was behind that scheme.” – NY Times

Mapping the investigation

Net widens and deepens

“Two Arizonans who signed a document falsely declaring they were empowered to cast the state’s electoral votes for former President Donald Trump were subpoenaed Friday by a congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump lost the 2020 election in Arizona. Yet, 11 Republicans met at the Arizona Republican Party headquarters on Dec. 14, 2020, and signed a document that said they were “duly elected and qualified” electors for Arizona. In total, seven states sent slates of alternate electors to the U.S. Senate.

The Select Committee of Congress subpoenaed the chairperson and secretary from each of those seven states who signed the certificates making the false claim. In Arizona, the chairperson was Nancy Cottle; the secretary was Loraine Pellegrino.” – AZ Central
