The Georgia panel pushed for criminal charges against Lindsey Graham and other Trump allies

A special grand jury convened by Georgia prosecutors has recommended criminal charges against Sen. Lindsey Graham and a host of other allies of Donald Trump who have not been charged by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, according to a report released Friday.

The special grand jury, which led a year-long investigation into efforts to undermine the 2020 election in Georgia, helped Willis gather a massive amount of evidence that she used to build a sweeping indictment against Trump and eighteen alleged co-conspirators, including Rudy Giuliani. , John Eastman and others. But the special grand jury report, which remained under wraps until Friday, urged her to indict a much broader range of figures linked to the effort.

They contain:

  • Graham, the senior senator from South Carolina

  • Former Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler

  • Trump advisor Boris Epshteyn

  • Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn

  • Attorney Cleta Mitchell

The special grand jury, a quirk of Georgia law, had no authority to issue indictments but had to make recommendations to Willis, who could then file an indictment through a traditional grand jury. All of the figures Willis charged alongside Trump last month were also on the list determined by the special grand jury.
