Trump’s legal team is facing another round of grand jury subpoenas over exercising their constitutional right to contest a presidential election. Also subpoenaed was Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
CNN reported the news on Tuesday.
“[The investigation] is moving forward and it’s moving forward at a pretty good clip,” CNN Legal Analyst Jennifer Rodgers said.
Fulton County has been the center of controversy in Georgia’s razor-thin election that was handed to now-President Joe Biden. That doesn’t look to end any time soon with the county issuing a subpoena to Trump attorneys, including Rudy Giuliani, alleging ‘criminal interference’ in the 2020 election.
“The Fulton County special grand jury investigating potential criminal interference in Georgia’s 2020 elections has subpoenaed key members of former President Donald Trump’s legal team, including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Tuesday.
“In addition to Giuliani, those being summoned include John Eastman, Cleta Mitchell, Kenneth Chesebro and Jenna Ellis, all of whom advised the Trump campaign on strategies for overturning Democrat Joe Biden’s wins in Georgia and other swing states,” the report continued.
“The grand jury also subpoenaed U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of Trump’s top allies, along with attorney and podcast host Jacki Pick Deason,” the report noted.
“The subpoenas were filed July 5 and signed by Fulton Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, who is overseeing the special grand jury,” the report added. “They noted that all seven people were ‘a necessary and material witness’ to the investigation.”

“Giuliani testified before Georgia legislators in late 2020, showing edited surveillance video of ballots being tabulated at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena,” AJC remarked. The former New York City mayor said the tape was a ‘powerful smoking gun’ of election workers pulling out ‘suitcases’ of ballots to count after sending Republican poll watchers home.”
“A Big Tech-backed ‘fact’ ‘checking’ outfit claimed to debunk explosive evidence in support of Republicans’ claims of significant election problems at a Thursday Georgia Senate hearing,” Hemingway writes. “It didn’t. Not even close.”
“Newly discovered security footage from Georgia’s State Farm Arena showed dozens of ballot counters, media, and Republican observers leaving en masse at the same time from the ballot-counting area for Fulton County,” she adds. “After they left, a small remnant of about four workers began pulling trunks containing thousands of ballots from underneath a table with a long tablecloth and running them through machines.”
There is nothing legal or proper about what the Fulton County elections did. If they were workers who were suspected of handing votes to Trump, it would not only be equally wrong, the media would never stop pushing for credible answers.
