FIRST ON FOX: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will appeal the decision by a federal judge forcing him to comply with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury as part of the investigation into whether former President Donald Trump and others violated any laws during the latter’s efforts to reverse the state’s outcome in the 2020 presidential election.

In an exclusive statement to Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for Graham accused the judge of ignoring constitutional text and Supreme Court precedent, citing the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause prevents a local official from questioning a senator about how that senator did his job. Here, Senator Graham was doing his due diligence before the Electoral Count Act certification vote – where he voted to certify the election,” the statement said.


They added, “Although the district court acknowledged that Speech or Debate may protect some of Senator Graham’s activities, she nevertheless ignored constitutional text and binding Supreme Court precedent, so Senator Graham plans to appeal to the 11th Circuit.”

Reporter Joseph Bustos tweeted Monday, “.@LindseyGrahamSC‘s office in a statement says the senator plans to appeal Monday’s decision to the 11th Circuit. Graham’s effort to throw out a subpoena for him to testify in front of a Georgia grand jury was denied.”

Reporter Caitlin Byrd tweeted, “INBOX: U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s office releases statement saying he plans to appeal the decision to the 11th Circuit after a federal judge said the South Carolina Republican must testify before a special grand jury in Georgia.

Reporter Mary Green tweeted, “.@LindseyGrahamSC‘s office says he plans to appeal this decision. Last week in Columbia, Graham called the subpoena ‘ridiculous’ and a ‘weaponization of the law.'”

  1. How many progressive judges sit there? It appears that the judiciary process is dependent on the political leanings of the judges and the leaning of the defendant.

  2. Obama’s plans are all coming together ! With the backing of Soros, the help of Susan Rice, and Hillary too, I suspect. These are Evil times
