Georgia prosecutor knocks Lindsey Graham's subpoena challenge

A Georgia prosecutor on Thursday hit back at Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for challenging a subpoena to testify before the special grand jury investigating former President Trump’s election meddling attempts in the state.

In a Thursday court filing, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) said Graham’s challenge is “built on the shifting sands of erroneous legal arguments, inapplicable legal principles, and citations to caselaw that fail to support any legal point being made.”

Graham renewed his efforts to resist the subpoena earlier this week, asking the Georgia federal district court to expedite hearing his challenge.

His legal team argued in a court filing that the subpoena would set a precedent allowing “other county officials in locales across the country to impose similar burdens on federal officials, of whatever party, to the detriment of our federal government and the federalism that protects it from state and local interference.”

4. And what law stop federal government officials from using their positions to

independently interfere with state and local proceedings?

7. Ole Lindsey has much to hide,

Which is why his knickers are in such a bunch.

Fact of the matter is, he interfered in an election in another state on his Boss's behalf. And he is being held accountable for it.

8. Everything trump touches dies. He has touched Lindsay's career.

Any person with integrity would gladly answer a subpoena.

9. Linds, you are not being subpoenaed on a whim,

nor is it "interference" to be asked to appear for questioning due to your own ill-considered behavior. If you want fewer subpoenas to head your way, next time don't flirt with election tampering, mmkay? Jackass.

I love Fani Willis' choice of Jefferson quotes at the end of the article. 👍

10. Federalism doesn't protect you from being subpoenaed...

...Linds. It also doesn't insulate criminals from their crimes.

13. It was an interesting point though.

Considering how closely aligned the Constitutional Sherifs movement is to the GOP you have to say I don't think his problem is with it interfering with federalism, but interfering with him.

He's an important person after all. Just ask him.

11. Willis can argue the reverse of his argument, that states should be free of federal officials'

interference in their election process and counting.

How rich. His phone call imposed a burden, as well.

His legal team argued ... that the subpoena would set a precedent allowing “other county officials in locales across the country to impose similar burdens on federal officials, ... to the detriment of our federal government and the federalism that protects it from state and local interference.”

15. hypocrite to the max.

He was the one interfering in state business. He was being a crook on the behalf of a crook. He can't argue his 2ay out of that truth.

More proof of the electoral college being a disaster for democracy.
