Former Trump White House counsel Pat Cipollone has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury investigating the former president’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, CNN reported Tuesday night.

Citing a source familiar with the matter, the network reported that “Cipollone and his attorneys are in discussions about an appearance before the grand jury, including how to deal with executive privilege issues. ”

The development is the latest sign that the Justice Department’s investigation has reached inside former President Donald Trump’s White House and that prosecutors are looking at conduct directly related to Trump and his closest allies’ efforts to undo his election defeat.

Cipollone testified before the House Select Committee last month, revealing to House investigators that he told Trump there was not sufficient evidence of election fraud and that he should have conceded the election.
