1. Lindsey Graham, Giuliani among Trump allies subpoenaed in Georgia

A Georgia grand jury investigating possible criminal interference by then-President Donald Trump and his allies in the state's 2020 presidential election count subpoenaed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday, The Washington Post reported, citing documents it obtained. The Fulton County special grand jury also issued subpoenas for Trump legal advisers Kenneth Chesebro, John Eastman, Jenna Ellis, and Cleta Mitchell, all of whom participated in Trump's effort to overturn President Biden's victories in Georgia and other battleground states. Giuliani's subpoena mentions his December 2020 testimony to Georgia lawmakers claiming he had evidence of widespread voter fraud. Giuliani likely has "unique knowledge" of Trump's "multi-state, coordinated efforts" to influence the election results, the grand jury said.
