The special counsel in charge of the investigations against the former president Donald Trump has subpoenaed former vice president Mike Pence, sources told Fox News.

After months of discussions between Pence’s legal team and federal prosecutors, a subpoena was issued, but the Justice Department chose not to comment on the situation.

Special Counsel Jack Smith is in charge of the investigation, which is focusing on both testimony and materials relating to the disturbance on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol as well as any possible improper handling of classified information by Trump after leaving office.

In order to look into the entirety of the criminal inquiry into the storage of presidential papers, including classified records, at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Smith as a special counsel in November.

A call for comment from Fox News Digital went unanswered by a Pence representative right away.

It wasn’t immediately clear what Pence will face from the government or whether he will assert his executive privilege rights.

The probe into him, which Trump referred to as “the greatest politicization of justice in our society,” was the subject of his declaration last year that he “won’t partake.”

Trump stated that he has been going through this for six years and that he is done with it in an interview on Friday, just after the announcement. He expressed the hope that the Republicans will have the guts to oppose this.

Additionally, he claimed that every accusation against him had been disproven, from false impeachments to [former special counsel Robert] Mueller’s conclusion that there was no cooperation. Trump emphasized that doing more right now is totally unacceptable.
