Giuliani and Graham Subpoenaed in GA Trump Election Probe
The investigation is focused on efforts by Trump and his allies to pressure Georgia election officials to decertify the election result and even “find” Trump votes so that he could win the state in the 2020 presidential election.
Trump was caught on tape on Jan. 2, 2021, pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” him 11,780 votes so that he could win the state – a conversation that Raffensperger later described as threatening.
Other former Trump lawyers subpoenaed Tuesday included “John Eastman, Cleta Mitchell, Kenneth Chesebro, and Jenna Ellis, all of whom advised Trump on strategies for overturning Democrat Joe Biden’s wins in Georgia and other swing states,” reported the Atlanta Consitution-Journal.
Sen. Graham was subpoenaed due to his role in reportedly calling Raffensperger “in the days following the November 2020 elections.” The Journal added that Graham “allegedly questioned whether the secretary of state had the power to reject more legally cast absentee ballots to help Trump narrow his deficit in Georgia. Graham denied the allegation.”
