A special Georgia grand jury looking into former President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election on Tuesday subpoenaed U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and six others to testify next week. Among those also subpoenaed were attorneys Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, both advisers to Trump.

The grand jury reportedly seeks to discuss at least two telephone calls Graham made in January 2020 with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his staff about the election results. Graham’s office, which routinely and frequently power-publishes news releases and comments, did not immediately respond to requests for comment, according to multiple news outlets. As of this morning, no update has been made on his Twitter feed since July 4. More: Roll Call, WCBD TV, The State, The Post and Courier, The Washington Post, The New York Times
