US Special Counsel Withdraws Subpoena on Trump’s Political Fundraising Group

US Special Counsel Jack Smith Withdraws Subpoena on Trump’s Political Fundraising Group

U.S. Special Counsel Jack Smith has recently withdrawn a subpoena seeking records about fundraising by the political action committee Save America, which is controlled by former President Donald Trump. This decision indicates a scaling back of Smith’s inquiry into the political fundraising work that was associated with unfounded claims about the 2020 election. The investigation is narrowing its focus.

Save America: Trump’s Separate Fundraising Group

Save America is a separate group from Trump’s campaign but played a significant role in raising money to support him as the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican nomination. It was founded by Trump shortly after he lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden. The group has not been specifically mentioned in the federal indictment against Trump.

Trump’s Legal Challenges

Trump has been facing legal challenges on various fronts. He pleaded not guilty on August 3 to charges brought by Smith in federal court in Washington. The charges include conspiracy to defraud the United States by preventing Congress from certifying Biden’s election victory and attempting to deprive voters of their right to a fair election. Trump also faces three other indictments related to hush money payments, handling of classified documents, and attempts to overturn his election loss in Georgia. He has pleaded not guilty to all these charges.

The Withdrawn Subpoena: Scope of Investigation

The withdrawal of the subpoena seeking records from Save America may simply reflect a pragmatic decision to narrow the scope of the investigation, according to legal experts. This move suggests that the Special Counsel’s office is refining its focus and reallocating its resources.


The withdrawal of the subpoena on Trump’s political fundraising group signifies a shift in the Special Counsel’s investigation. As the inquiry narrows its focus, it remains to be seen how this will impact Trump’s legal challenges and the overall political landscape.
