Just recently, we reported on the bombshell news that South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, along with numerous other top Trump allies, has been officially subpoenaed by the Fulton County District Attorney’s office in connection to their Grand Jury criminal 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.
Just like clockwork, Lindsey Graham’s legal team has now spoken out in response to the explosive subpoenas, and it’s frankly even more ridiculous than we were prepared for.
On behalf of the Republican senator, Graham’s lawyer vowed to fight the grand jury subpoena tooth and nail.
In a statement, the senator’s attorney wrote, “I have been informed Senator Graham is neither a subject nor target of the investigation, simply a witness. This is all politics. Fulton County is engaged in a fishing expedition and working in concert with the January 6 Committee in Washington.”

Graham’s lawyer went on to claim that any information that was collected by the Fulton Co. grand jury would ultimately and “immediately be shared with the January 6 Committee.”
And they REALLY don’t want that to happen.
“As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Graham was well within his rights to discuss with state officials the processes and procedures around administering elections,” the statement on Graham’s behalf reads. “Should it stand, the subpoena issued today would erode the constitutional balance of power and the ability of a Member of Congress to do their job. Senator Graham plans to go to court, challenge the subpoena, and expects to prevail.”
