Sen. Lindsey Graham’s testimony is “crucial” for the investigation into 2020 election interference, according to an Atlanta-area district attorney.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis made the claim in a court filing that rejected an appeal from the South Carolina senator saying he should not be forced to testify before the grand jury, according to CNN. The prosecution argued that he must testify because it could lead to a “revelation” regarding the case.

LINDSEY GRAHAM FIRES BACK AT FULTON COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND CHALLENGES SUBPOENA

Graham is crucial to the investigation “not simply because he possesses necessary and material information but also because he is expected to provide information regarding additional sources of relevant information,” the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office argued.

“Delaying the Senator’s testimony would not simply postpone his appearance; it would also delay the revelation of an entire category of relevant witnesses or information,” the office said.

“Given the possibility that Senator Graham’s testimony could reveal additional routes of inquiry, staying remand and enjoining his appearance at this stage could ultimately delay the resolution of the (Special Purpose Grand Jury)’s entire investigation,” the filing read.

The South Carolina senator argued that he should not be forced to testify before the grand jury because his activities surrounding the 2020 presidential election were all related to legislative activity as part of his position as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, so he should be protected under the Constitution’s speech and debate clause.

Willis wants to question Graham regarding conversations the senator had surrounding election-related activity, particularly with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, according to the Washington Post.

The district attorney is investigating allegations of a conspiracy orchestrated by former President Donald Trump and his allies, which she characterizes as “a multistate, coordinated plan by the Trump Campaign to influence the results of the November 2020 election in Georgia and elsewhere.” Trump has denied all allegations of wrongdoing.
