What is Lindsey Graham hiding?

What does Lindsey Graham know about Trump that we don’t? An appeals court has frozen the U.S. senator Lindsey Graham’s testimony to a grand Jury

It’s part of an ongoing investigation on the former president Donald Trump’s actions pursuing to overturn a 2020 election defeat.

Graham, who is a republican says due to his post, he’s immune from being inquired about the investigations.

The decision to hold off the hearing, comes as a relief to the senator.

The appeals court also granted him permission to challenge testifying under the U.S. Constitutions clause for protecting lawmakers from being compelled to discuss legislative topics.

But he isn’t out of the investigation entirely.

As a close ally of Trump, many believe he has insight into the former presidents efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Well, if you’re asking, what could Lindsey Graham possibly know?

The Grand jury are particularly interested in hearing about two phone calls he made to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his staff, allegedly searching for ways to review absentee ballots.

This probe is just one of the many legal fights embattling the former president. Recently, Trump’s home was raided by the FBI and he’s also being investigated by a congressional panel in regards to the January 6 Capitol riots.

Donald Trump previously falsely claimed that he lost Georgia because of voter fraud. Many say winning this state, significantly helped Joe Biden take the Presidency.

Despite facing a number of probes and investigations.

Donald Trump denies any wrongdoing.

In fact, it seems like he’s preparing to run for President.

That’s exactly what happened in New York though, where a bright-coloured bird was rescued.

Wildlife groups believe the pigeon was dyed as part of a gender reveal ceremony.

The feathery friend was suffering from malnutrition when it was found in Madison Square Park.

In a statement, the Wild Bird Fund says they should never be dyed because of risks like starvation and even death.

It went on to say the “poor bird has it bad enough unable to find food in the wild, fly well or escape predators.”

“But being a bright, unusual colour makes him even more of a target.”

The lawsuit also takes aim at some of Trump’s children, and executives of his business.

During the deposition tape, Trump can be seen reading a lengthy statement.
