ATLANTA — The Fulton County District Attorney’s office is investigating Lindsey Graham over his phone call to Georgia’s Secretary of State after the 2020 election.
Channel 2 Action News has confirmed that Fani Willis is looking into the call, which happened Nov. 13, ten days after the election. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told Channel 2′s Nicole Carr that Graham asked him if he had the power to throw out mail-in ballots in some Georgia counties.
“She is investigating any and all evidence pertaining to the 2020 election that falls within Fulton county,” Willis’ office said in a statement.

While Willis didn’t speak directly to Graham’s possible involvement, the statement echoes what Wills told Channel 2′s Dave Huddleston on Thursday.
“Anyone that violates the law will be prosecuted,” Willis said. “(I’m) not going to treat anyone different.”

In November, when ABC News asked Graham why a senator from South Carolina felt the need to get involved with the Georgia Secretary of State, Graham answered, “Because it affects the whole nation. I’m very interested.” He also denied initiating the conversation on behalf of then-president Donald Trump.
Willis is also investigating Donald Trump after a Jan. 2 phone call to Raffensperger where the president asked the Secretary of State to “find” him votes and overturn the election results in Georgia.
President Joe Biden won the state by a narrow margin of just under 13,000 votes.
