Graham goes to Supreme Court to block Fulton subpoena
The South Carolina Republican seeks to avoid testifying in an investigation of possible 2020 election interference in Georgia.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) is taking his fight to avoid testifying before a special grand jury to the nation’s top court.
Graham has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene after a lower court ordered him to testify before a special grand jury in Georgia investigating whether then-President Donald Trump and others illegally tried to influence the 2020 election in the state. In a filing Friday with the Court, attorneys for the South Carolina Republican sought to halt Graham’s possible testimony while he continues to appeal the requirement to appear before the Fulton County special grand jury.
The filing was directed to Justice Clarence Thomas, who handles emergency appeals from Georgia. Thomas can act on his own or refer the matter to the full court.
