ATLANTA — A Fulton County judge has ordered U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, RS.C., to testify before a special grand jury in Fulton County next month.

Graham is one of eight subpoenaed jurors last week. Graham said he would contest the subpoena.

On Monday, the judge declared Graham a “necessary witness” to the investigation.

This is another step in a lengthy legal process to get Graham out of Washington to testify.

That new order says the grand jury must hear about Graham’s two alleged phone calls to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

In the injunction, Fulton County’s superior judge Robert McBurney said the “court finds Lindsey Graham to be a necessary and material witness” in the special grand jury’s investigation into possible criminal interference in Georgia’s 2020 election. .

The new order also requires Graham to testify in August.

The grand jury has subpoenaed Graham while also subpoenaing former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and others who attended a Senate subcommittee hearing in December 2020.

“Excuse me, Mr. Mayor. Can you tell us what you are going to testify today?’ Channel 2 political reporter Richard Elliot Giuliani asked at the time.

“Not now,” Giuliani said.

It was there that Giuliani and the others first made allegations of mass voter fraud in Fulton County — allegations proved false by multiple state and federal investigations.

But the new order said the grand jury is seeking to learn more about two phone calls reportedly made by Graham to Raffensperger requesting that “certain absentee ballots cast in Georgia be re-examined to explore the possibility of a more favorable vote.” result for former President Donald Trump.”

Graham is challenging the subpoena, accusing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis last week of playing politics and collaborating with the Jan. 6 commission.

“My investigation and the January 6 investigation are not the same,” Willis said in an exclusive interview last week.

Willis said she hoped Graham would change his mind and be happy to testify.

“I hope Senator Graham will have a moment of quiet reflection and decide to give truthful testimony to this grand jury who wants to hear from him on some very important issues,” Willis said.

Graham is due to testify on August 2. But all this still has to go through the courts in Washington, DC
