It is unclear what information Smith is seeking from Pence. Spokesmen for Smith and Pence declined to comment on the matter.

ABC news first reported that Pence has been subpoenaed.

In December, NBC News reported that Smith had aforementioned local officials in key presidential states for any communication involving Trump, his campaign and a host of aides and allies who helped him in his effort to overturn the 2020 election.

The move was an indication that Smith is investigating a scheme involving fake voters, a list of people who signed documents claiming they were the rightful voters of their states and claiming Trump was the victor rather than the rightful winner, President Joe Biden.
