Lindsey Graham Ordered to Testify in Georgia Probe

With the number of investigations into Donald Trump seemingly increasing by the week, the ever-widening scope of these probes has began to scoop up some of those within Trump’s wake, while not yet getting their litigious ligatures around the big fish himself.

The latest to find themselves caught up in a Trump-centric investigation is South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who will need to travel a few hours south on I-85 in the not too distant future to testify in the Peach State.

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham must testify before a special grand jury investigating whether then-President Donald Trump and others illegally tried to influence the 2020 election in Georgia, a federal appeals court said Thursday.

The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals paves the way for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to bring Graham in for questioning. She wants to ask the South Carolina Republican about phone calls he made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in the weeks after the election.

Raffensperger said Graham asked whether he had the power to reject certain absentee ballots, something Raffensperger took as a suggestion to toss out legally cast votes. Graham has dismissed that interpretation as “ridiculous.”

Graham has not only denied any wrongdoing in the case, but has also suggested that his status as an active member of Congress makes him invulnerable to such legal actions.
