Lindsey Graham Is Getting A Little Desperate, Files New Court Motion Claiming He’s Protected On “All The Topics” In GA Election Investigation Subpoena

He's getting desperate.

South Carolina Senator and Trump sycophant Lindsey Graham was recently slapped with a subpoena in connection to the ongoing election investigation in Fulton County, Georgia — and suffice it to say, he’s really not happy about it.

Graham and his legal team have been fighting tooth and nail against the subpoena for Graham’s testimony since the moment it was issued. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is currently seeking Graham’s under-oath testimony before a Grand Jury in connection to a grand jury related to an ongoing investigation into whether or not Donald Trump broke Georgia state law when he called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and all but demanded that the state official “find” enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential election win in the traditionally red southern state.

As part of his desperate effort to avoid having to answer for what he’s done, the Republican lawmaker’s legal team has now reportedly filed a motion in Fulton County today, asserting that Senator Graham should remain protected against testifying on “all the topics” included in the subpoena, ultimately arguing that he shouldn’t have to comply with the order at all.

Graham secured himself a small win earlier this week when the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily paused a previous district court order that required Graham’s compliance with the subpoena. But he knows that won’t last forever. In an effort to get ahead of it all, Lindsey’s lawyers filed a motion today claiming that constitutional protections allow the senator to avoid answering a single question from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

The motion filed on Senator Graham’s behalf reads:

This Court has asked ‘exactly which questions and/or categories’ the Speech or Debate Clause [of the U.S. Constitution] bars. It should bar questioning on all the topics sought by the District Attorney and this subpoena (see Docs. 2-2, 2-3), and the other topics suggested by Amici so far (which are not found in the plain text of the Petition, Certificate, or subpoena), because all ultimately seek ‘inquiry into [the investigation] and into the motivation for those acts.'”

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has already admitted that he felt pressured by Lindsey Graham to somehow discard some of the state’s votes in favor of Joe Biden in the direct aftermath of the 2020 presidential election.
