Lindsey Graham Ordered to Testify in Georgia Probe

Senator Graham has been subpoenaed in the 2020 election investigation.

Senator Graham has been subpoenaed in the 2020 election investigation.

This morning, United States District Judge Leigh Martin May ordered that South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham must comply and testify before the Georgia Grand Jury as part of an ongoing investigation conducted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. Willis has been investigating the conduct of former US President Donald Trump and his known allies and associates in the days leading up to and after the 2020 election to determine if any laws were violated.

According to Willis’ petition for Graham’s subpoena, the Senator made a series of calls following the election, in which he “questioned Secretary Raffensperger and his staff about reexamining certain absentee ballots cast in Georgia in order to explore the possibility of a more favorable outcome for former President Donald Trump.” Graham also “made reference to allegations of widespread voter fraud in the November 2020 election in Georgia, consistent with public statements made by known affiliates of the Trump Campaign.”

“Individuals on the calls have publicly suggested that Senator Graham was not simply engaged in legislative factfinding but was instead suggesting or implying that Georgia election officials change their processes or otherwise potentially alter the state’s results,” Judge May wrote in her order.

Graham, for his part, intends to appeal the subpoena, believing his status as a Senator gives him immunity. “This weaponization of the law needs to stop,” Graham told reporters at a press conference. “So I will use the courts. We will go as far as we need to go and do whatever needs to be done to make sure that people like me can do their jobs without fear of some county prosecutor coming after you.”
