Lindsey Graham agrees to testify before grand jury investigating Trump’s meddling in 2020 election

South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham agreed this Tuesday to abide by a subpoena calling on him to testify before a Georgia grand jury investigating then-President Donald Trump’s possible criminal meddling in the 2020, CNBC reports.

However, Graham has retained his right to question the grand jury’s legitimacy.

From CNBC:

The Atlanta-based grand jury is seeking evidence related to efforts by Trump and others to get Georgia officials to overturn the election won there by President Joe Biden.

Graham’s agreement to accept the subpoena likely will streamline his dispute with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over the demand for his testimony. Asked Tuesday afternoon about the development, Graham told NBC News that Fulton County hasn’t “even tried to subpoena me. I just want to get it done.”

The Republican lawmaker, one of Trump’s closest confidants in the Senate, had asked a federal judge in South Carolina last week to quash the subpoena.

But Willis in a court filing Monday told the judge that Graham’s challenge was both too early, and not filed in the right court. She said the fact that Graham had not yet been served with the subpoena made any motion to quash it premature, and that he might not be served in South Carolina.
