GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The retired Wisconsin Supreme Court justice leading a Republican-ordered investigation into the 2020 presidential election said Tuesday that he plans to issue subpoenas to mayors in the state’s five largest and most Democratic-leaning cities.

Attorney Michael Gableman told the Green Bay Common Council about his plans to issue a subpoena to that city’s mayor and four others.

It comes days after he demanded records from clerks in the same cities and the state’s top elections official.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Gableman also said he does not know if he can complete his investigation by the end of October, as Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he expected it to be done.
