A U.S. Supreme Court judge has temporarily overturned a subpoena in the Capitol investigation. As a result, the commission investigating the Storming of the Capitol does not have access to Kelli Ward’s phone records. She is the chairman of the Republican Party Department in the state of Arizona and a confidant of Donald Trump.

Ward had objected to the subpoena in several courts, but was not proved right. So she went to the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Elena Kagan decided to halt the commission of inquiry until the case has been further investigated.

The researchers had queried all of Ward’s SMS and call data from November 1, 2020 to January 30, 2021. She is alleged to have been involved in attempts to “complicate the counting of votes for the presidential election”.

Ward went to court because she believes the subpoena violates the fundamental rights of party members who spoke to her or sent her messages during that time.

Former President Trump himself has also been indicted. He is also expected to object.
