As part of its enormous defamation litigation against Fox News and Newsmax for their support of alleged 2020 election falsehoods, voting technology company Smartmatic has subpoenaed Trump associates Michael Flynn and Steve Bannon.

According to court documents that were made public last week in New York and Delaware, Flynn and Bannon received subpoenas requiring them to appear for depositions and provide answers under oath.
