A grand jury investigating Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the results of the election in Georgia has subpoenaed some key allies of the former president who help in the effort, including Trump loyalist Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) and Rudy Giuliani, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis launched the investigation in Georgia last year after a recording of Trump’s phone call with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger leaked. On the call Trump pressured Raffensperger to “find” 11,780 votes, just enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s victory there in the election.
Graham also called Raffensperger in the days following the elections and allegedly questioned whether he had the power to discard all legally cast mail-in ballots from counties that had shown higher rates of unmatched signatures. Graham denied the allegations.
In addition to Giuliani and Graham the grand jury also subpoenaed John Eastman, Cleta Mitchell, Kenneth Chesebro and Jenna Ellis, all of whom advised Trump on strategies to overturn Joe Biden’s wins in Georgia and other key swing states, AJC reports.
