Appeals Court Temporarily Blocks Sen. Lindsey Graham’s Testimony In Georgia Voter Fraud Case

The federal appeals court for the 11th Circuit temporarily blocked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) from testifying before a Georgia grand jury investigating attempts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election.

The appeals court told the lower court to rule on whether certain questions should be off limits in questioning.

Graham earlier agreed with Fulton County officials to testify before the grand jury but did not show up for his testimony.

The original agreement between the senator and Fani Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, seemed to be a compromise after weeks of conflict over subpoenas between Graham and the county.

When the prior subpoenas were sent, Graham and his lawyers argued “absolute legislative immunity and privilege” and attempted to fight the claim.

A state judge in Georgia then ruled that Graham must testify to give his account of the attempt to decertify the election results. The judge also called for Graham to comply with Willis and her inquiry into the senator’s attempts during the November election.
