Georgia DA pushing for Lindsay Graham testimony, maybe for racketeering case

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis laid out fresh details in a new federal court filing about why she subpoenaed Lindsay Graham for testimony before a Special Grand Jury investigating possible election interference.

Willis’ attempt to enforce Graham’s testimony is the latest step in her rapidly escalating investigation of Trump and his allies over their efforts to flip Trump’s 2020 defeat in Georgia into a win and collect the state’s 16 electoral college votes.

Willis may be attempting to put together a sweeping racketeering case under a statute known as Georgia RICO, or the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. That move has the potential to wrap Trump together with his allies into a single grand case, if Willis can prove they used an organization, such as the Trump Campaign, to commit a series of crimes. Georgia RICO is the junior cousin of the federal RICO statute, which was originally devised to bring down organized crime, and happens to be Willis’ signature move.
