Is Trump’s DOJ Making North Carolina His New Front in the Voting Wars? Subpoenas Sent to Get Voting Records Throughout State

A few weeks back, the DOJ brought charges in North Carolina against 19 people the government said were non-citizens voting in the election. The NYT reported:

The Justice Department said the violations were uncovered by a newly created federal task force on document and benefit fraud in North Carolina’s Eastern Judicial District, led by the Homeland Security Department’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division and the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service.

But now something bigger is up, according to Democratic lawyer Marc Elias:

Is this the latest attempt of the Trump Administration to push the voter fraud narrative? Is this a voter suppression effort? Or is it a legitimate investigation untouched by politics?

This is one to watch closely.
