the republican senator Lindsey Grahamally of the former president donald trump (2017-2021), finally declared this Tuesday before the Court about the efforts to revoke the results of the 2020 presidential elections in the state of Georgia, where Democrat Joe Biden won.

Graham had filed before the Supreme Court of USA a petition to avoid his appearance before a grand jury in Atlanta (Georgia), but the country’s highest court overturned his attempt three weeks ago.

The grand jury is investigating whether Graham called in 2020 the Secretary of State for GeorgiaBrad Raffensperger, in charge of certifying the elections, to reverse the result of the elections, something that both officials have denied.

The case is part of the investigations in Georgia into whether Trump and others, including Grahamlobbied the political representatives of that state in relation to the results of the 2020 elections.

Trump denounced without evidence a massive electoral fraud that gave victory to Biden and a mob of supporters of the republican stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021 to stop the ratification of the Democrat’s victory.

In Georgia and other states USA., special grand juries cannot issue criminal indictments, but they do have the power to subpoena witnesses and to transfer documents, in a process that takes place in secret.

At the end of their mission, these types of juries, made up of between 16 and 23 people, issue a report with their conclusions and sometimes recommend some measures, but it is up to the prosecutors to decide whether or not to accuse, something for which they would need to present evidence to another grand jury.
