US senator to appear in court over Trump investigation

United States Senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham (pictured) will have to appear in front of a special grand jury regarding an investigation into former US President Donald Trump's interference in the 2020 elections in the state of Georgia, a federal judge said on Friday.

Graham is expected to appear in court on Tuesday as he was ordered by US District Judge Leigh Martin May to honor his subpoena. Attorneys for the Republican senator argued that Graham should be protected under the principle of “sovereign immunity,” a claim the judge rejected.

On Wednesday, former New York Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared in court to testify, as he is currently facing a criminal investigation into the 2020 Georgia elections.
