A federal judge ruled US Senator Lindsey Graham must testify before a state grand jury investigating whether any laws were broken by former President Donald Trump and his allies in attempts to overturn his 2020 election loss in Georgia.

US District Judge Leigh Martin May rejected Graham’s efforts to quash a subpoena Monday, finding that although members of Congress are generally shielded against being forced to testify about their legislative activities, the Fulton County grand jury was exploring post-election conduct that may fall beyond those protections.

The article goes on to state the following:

May also rebuffed Graham’s arguments that he shouldn’t have to appear because of his status as a sitting senator — that he was covered by sweeping sovereign immunity or, alternatively, a line of appeals court cases that set the bar high for forcing high-ranking officials to be deposed.


The report explains that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has accused Graham of pushing him to throw out legitimately-cast mail-in ballots.  The allegations stem from two phone calls Graham made to Raffensperger just weeks after the 2020 election.

Graham has denied the allegations, saying his phone calls were “investigatory, information-gathering exercises” protected by the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause.

Bloomberg News reporter Zoe Tillman shared the following in a series of Twitter posts:

New: A federal judge rejected Sen. Lindsey Graham’s challenge to a subpoena to testify before a grand jury in Georgia probing efforts to disrupt the 2020 election.

DA showed “extraordinary circumstances and a special need for Senator Graham’s testimony.”

Story, with more to come, on a judge ruling that Sen. Lindsey Graham must testify before a state grand jury in Georgia investigating efforts to disrupt the 2020 election.

The judge rejected Graham’s multipronged attack on the validity of the Fulton County grand jury subpoena — he’d raised the Constitution’s Speech or Debate clause, sovereign immunity, and case law shielding high-ranking officials from forced testimony.

The judge sent the case back to state court and left open the possibility that Graham could raise targeted challenges to specific lines of grand jury inquiry under the Speech or Debate Clause, but wrote that it still might not take all Qs off the table.

  1. This shows the Democrats are scared to death of President Trump. His popularity just gets stronger. The left is just pushing people further away from them. America has woke up to their evil politics!

  2. I am so damn sick and tired of these “investigations” against conservatives and especially President Trump. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING comes of any accusations toward the lateral left yet EVERYTHING gets pursued against the Right. The good thing here is that they are pushing people away, invalidating their investigations through public perception and bringing more and more people to their senses against the left. November can’t get here soon enough. Get out and vote!!

  3. How much more will it take to show everyone in this country that all of our judges are in the back pocket of the democratic party? Did you notice this piece of crap judge even acknowledged in the PAST Graham would not have to appear. BUT since this is an effort to get to TRUMP it’s okay. This is getting old. This vendetta against anything TRUMP!!!!! Please let people wake up before November! This democratic party is killing our country.

  4. The socialist Demogods need to be neutralized. We now know the “Woke” are a lost cause. Time to move on and be vigilant of the cheaters in the November election. We all need to get out and vote like our lives depends on it . Because it does!!!

  5. We have real problems here in America and they keep going after President Trump and wasting our taxpayers money. We need to clean house from the top to bottom and get rid of these anti- Americans . If it was up to me put them all on planes and ship them over to a communist country and take away their American Citizenship as they hate it here away

  6. Everything he says will be skewed by the propaganda news to fit their agenda to destroy any republicans that could stop a democrat from winning any seat. Because they will lie he probably should just take the 5th! Until it happened to Trump he had the same attitude as many people, that if you took the 5th you had to be guilty but he learned that isn’t the truth that you can be innocent but will be screwed anyway you answer!

  7. Not a big fan of Lindsay Graham. The guy is pretty unpredictable. But can anyone really believe that Graham pressured an election official not to count legitimate votes?!! I don’t believe that for a second.
