Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.) revealed he wasn’t concerned about his testimony before the Georgia grand jury despite the jury’s suggestions a witness committed purgery.

Graham asserted he has “no concerns” with the testimony, adding that he agrees with the “grand jury analysis that there was no widespread fraud in Georgia,” pointing out that he voted to certify the state’s election results.

Graham has found himself in the crosshairs of a nearly year-long probe after Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) subpoenaed him last year.

Willis sought the South Carolina Republican’s testimony on former President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure Georgia officials to overturn the state’s results.

For months, Graham attempted to obstruct the subpoena but was unsuccessful, finally appearing before the grand jury in November.

Last week, on February 16, the grand jury released a partial report of its investigation, suggesting that Willis pursue indictments of witnesses who lied to the grand jury, though it doesn’t mention who those witnesses are.

The probe’s known targets include Trump’s former attorney Rudy Giuliani and 16 Republicans who participated in a meeting where they attempted to carry out their alternative elector scheme and certify the election in Trump’s favor.

Any of those witnesses may be the individuals who lied to the grand jury. Yet, Graham finds himself in the spotlight because, in the wake of Trump’s loss, he reached out to Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, to question the validity of the state’s tally.

On Sunday, Graham defended the infamous phone call, claiming he felt it “made sense” to make it at the time, but wouldn’t answer a question regarding whether he regretted it.
