Judge Delivers Tough Ruling to Lindsey Graham in GA Election Probe

The great state of Georgia, once a perennial bastion of political “redness”, has been shifting in recent years, particularly as the population of Atlanta continues to be bolstered by a mass Hollywood immigration taking advantage of the state’s generous tax incentives for filming.

In fact, the Peach State’s electoral votes went “blue” in 2020 for the first time since the 1990’s, lending a new sense of urgency to the coming midterm elections, if for no other reason than to gauge the staying power of this liberal trend.

But there are also concerns in Georgia regarding the 2020 election, and an ongoing investigation into the aftermath of that contest has one South Carolina lawmakers back in the crosshairs.

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.

The longtime Senator insists that there was no wrongdoing.

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 isn’t exactly out of legal retorts just yet, with at least one appeal still available to him before his testimony becomes inevitable.
