WI Attorney General Wants Investigation Shut Down

Shut it down. That’s Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul’s request, regarding the partisan Republican investigation into the state’s 2020 presidential election

“This investigation should be shut down. This is not a professional process that we’re seeing, and it’s a waste of taxpayer money.”

Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman has issued multiple subpoenas, including one requiring state Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe to testify on Friday. Kaul says it could end up in court.

“The current request is not a lawful request in our view and we think a court would find that she’s not required to testify there. Again, she’s happy to talk to them.”

In a statement, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said Gableman will continue his investigation, and that the subpoenas have been issued correctly.
