Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) must appear before a Georgia grand jury investigating possible attempts by former president Donald Trump and his allies to disrupt the state’s 2020 presidential election, a federal appeals court said Thursday.
As Ann E. Marimow reports, Graham’s lawyers had asked the court to block a subpoena from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D), claiming that a sitting senator is shielded from such investigations. But a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit denied Graham’s request and upheld a lower-court ruling narrowing the range of questions prosecutors can ask.
“Senator Graham has failed to demonstrate that this approach will violate his rights under the Speech and Debate Clause,” according to the six-page order.
Graham can appeal the order to the full appeals court or could ask the Supreme Court to intervene.

Good. Get that little scum bag to admit in court that he's a lying piece of shit.

I'd prefer he also admit he likes to wear women's underwear

Weird. Why would a sitting senator, and a member of the Judiciary Committee have to be forced to testify in an investigation into election shenanigans? Is it because he's worried about becoming a target of the investigation?
