Lindsey Graham's moment of truth: After being ordered to testify, he faces a stark choice

Sen. Lindsey Graham faces his courthouse moment of truth.

On Aug. 15, Atlanta federal District Court judge Leigh Martin May ordered Graham to testify before the special Fulton County grand jury investigating then-President Donald Trump's Jan. 2, 2021, phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

In that call, Trump asked Raffensperger to "find 11,780 votes," which he asserted was one vote more than he needed to overturn Joe Biden's electoral victory in Georgia. Graham had himself made two phone calls to Raffensperger after the November 2020 election but before Trump's call. It's not hard to imagine what those calls were about.

Graham has three choices on how to proceed. Only one can redeem him as someone committed to the rule of law. That choice, by the way, would also be the safest way to avoid the kind of prosecutorial suspicion that could lead to Graham becoming a target of the Georgia investigation, as Rudy Giuliani became on Monday.

Kick Trump's ass or continue to kiss it? These are such tough decisions. - Lindsey Graham

1. He will take the 5th.

And not the 5th that you use to make mint juleps.

2. I'd rather he pled the fifth than not tell the truth or just not show up.

3. He could be given immunity and thus required to testify.
