It looks like trouble is coming down the pike for Trump-obsessed South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, after the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has officially linked the lawmaker to Donald Trump’s attempts to “find” the 11,780 votes he desperately needed to take back the state of GA in the 2020 presidential election, according to a bombshell new court filing.
Back in the direct aftermath of the 2020 election, Donald Trump was embroiled in what has become a now-infamous phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which the then-outgoing-president all but demanded that the state official help him “find” a whopping 11,780 votes he needed to swing the traditionally red state back in his favor after Fulton County helped carry Georgia over to the blue side. Raffensperger was reportedly forced to repeatedly explain to Trump that those votes he was demanding to find simply did not exist.
Now, according to an explosive court filing reported on by POLITICO’s Nicholas Wu, none other than Lindsey Graham has been directly linked to Trump’s unhinged attempts to scrape up and “find” those more than 10,000 votes that weren’t real.
According to the publication’s reporting on the matter, a new court filing from Fulton County DA Fani Willis’s office states that Senator Graham’s “actions certainly appear interconnected with former President Trump’s similar efforts to pressure Georgia election officials into ‘finding 11,780 votes’ and to spread Georgia election fraud disinformation.”

The brutal court filing comes in direct response to Graham’s desperate attempts to side skirt a subpoena that compels him to testify as part of Willis’s special grand jury probe into Trump’s GA election scheme and less-than-perfect phone call. The Fulton County DA’s office argues in the filing that Lindsey’s actions “fall within the investigative purview of the special purpose grand jury to investigate and determine the facts of potential interconnectedness, which should include [his] sworn testimony.”
In the filing, the DA’s office directly cites claims made by Raffensperger regarding the pressure campaign lodged against him by the senator’s office, on Donald Trump’s behalf. Raffensperger revealed that Graham “implied for us to audit the envelopes and then throw out the ballots for counties who have the highest frequency error of signatures.
In response to the allegations, Graham and his attorneys have claimed that the lawmaker was not acting as a partisan official in his actions, in an effort to maintain Donald Trump’s power over the country, but instead was “only acting as a United States senator who is worried about the integrity of the electoral process.”
