Lindsey Graham Likely To Be Charged By DOJ For His Role In 2020 Election Crimes: Legal Expert

Even though he managed to dodge a bullet from Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is still not in the clear legally and is likely to face criminal charges from the Justice Department, according to a former U.S. attorney.

A grand jury in the Peach State recommended that Graham and two other former GOP senators — Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue — be indicted, but the DA filed no charges against them.

Graham should still be worried, Barbara McQuade, former U.S. Attorney for Michigan noted Saturday morning on MSNBC’s “The Katie Phang Show.”

Phang speculated that Graham may still be forced to testify at the Georgia racketeering trials of Trump and 18 other co-defendants, and that led McQuade to remark, “He may want to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.”

“The fact that this special grand jury recommended that he be indicted, it does indicate that he has some criminal exposure here,” McQuade added. “So it could be that his lawyer requests immunity for him to testify. If that is not received, then he may refuse to testify and then, when you’ve got these two different cases pending, the federal, case and state case, you have to worry about, even if Fani Willis isn’t going to charge you there’s a possibility he’d be charged federally.”

“And so, because of that exposure, it may be some of these witnesses demand immunity before they agreed to testify and waived their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. So in other words, they may not all be done yet.”

Lindsey had better hope he has one hell of a good attorney. Chances are things are going to get much worse for him before they get better.

Georgia Grand Jury: Lindsey Graham Should Be Indicted For Election Crimes

A grand jury in Georgia believes that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) committed crimes related to efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

That stunning revelation comes from an official report of grand jury proceedings that was released this morning and flagged by Stephen Fowler of Politico.

However, despite the grand jury recommendation, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis declined to charge Graham.

Mediaite notes that the grand jury report had been under seal.

The report had been under seal for nine months and was ordered released by a Georgia judge. The document includes the grand jury’s recommendations to prosecutors, including who the jury also recommended be indicted but District Attorney Fani Willis, who convened the grand jury in 2021, eventually passed on indicting – including three sitting U.S. Senators.

Though Willis didn’t indict Graham, the U.S. Department of Justice could still do, which is certainly a possibility since Special Counsel Jack Smith has made it clear that no one is off-limits when it comes to being charged with crimes related the 2020 election. After all, Smith has already obtained indictments against former president Donald Trump for his role in the election conspiracy.

Lindsey Graham Tries To Defend Trump From Indictment And Steps Into A Steaming Pile Of Irony

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on Fox “News” Monday evening and did his best impression of Henny Penny, declaring that the sky was definitely falling if disgraced former president Donald Trump wound up being indicted in the state of Georgia for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Appearing with Fox host Jesse Watters, Graham whined that the legal problems facing Trump were “unfair.”

“The American people can decide whether they want him to be president or not,” Graham declared. “This should be decided at the ballot box, not a bunch of liberal jurisdictions trying to put the man in jail.”

As HuffPost notes, many couldn’t help but wonder if Graham fully appreciated the irony of his words.

Users on … Twitter said deciding Trump’s fate at the ballot box was “sorta the point here.”

Lindsey Graham Owns Himself With A Complaint About The Judge In Trump’s Jan. 6 Trial

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) managed to own himself in spectacular fashion Wednesday during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox “News” show, suggesting that the judge assigned to failed former president Donald Trump’s Jan. 6 criminal case is biased against the ex-president and cannot be trusted to rule impartially.

However, when the judge was nominated by Barack Obama almost a decade ago, Graham voted to confirm U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, with the Senate approving the lifetime appointment by a 95-0 margin.

Despite those facts, however, Graham told Hannity that Chutkan cannot be trusted.

“The judge in this case hates Trump. You can convict Trump of kidnapping Lindbergh’s baby in D.C.”
He continued: “You need to have a change of venue. We need a new judge. And we need to win in 2024 to stop this crazy crap.”

Graham’s absurd remarks got him relentlessly mocked on Twitter, where many reminded him that he had no problem with Chutkan when he had a chance to vote against her.

Lindsey Graham Gets Booed By Crowd And Verbally Humiliated By Trump At Rally

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) got the opposite of a warm homecoming welcome when he appeared at a campaign rally for failed former president Donald Trump in Pickens, South Carolina.

Videos circulating on social media show the crowd lustily booing the senior South Carolina senator as he made remarks and introduced the twice-indicted ex-president, with the Greenville News reporting:

Graham, from nearby Oconee County, said he was going to help Trump win the 2024 general election and even pointed out that he was part of the Senate Judiciary Committee that helped bolster the Supreme Court’s conservative sheen. Despite that, the crowd remained unmoved and the booing continued for just over six minutes of Graham’s remarks.

When Trump took the stage, he tried to suggest that South Carolina loved Graham, according to Mediaite.

“Now, you know, you can make mistakes on occasion. Even Lindsey down here, Senator Lindsey Graham, we love Senator Graham.”

More loud booing.


“But when I need some of those liberal votes, he’s always there to help me get them, okay? We got some pretty liberal people. But he’s good. He’s good. We know the good ones. We know the bad ones, too. We got some real bad ones. But even he makes mistakes on occasion.”

To say it was a very bad day for Lindsey would be the biggest understatement of 2023. Even his own home state hates his guts.
