A Georgia grand jury has issued subpoenas to U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and the attorney Rudy Giuliani as part of an investigation of possible criminal interference in that state’s 2020 election by former President Donald Trump, a new report said Tuesday.

Also subpoenaed by the special grand jury in Fulton County were other members of Trump’s legal team in addition to Giuliani, The Atlanta Journal-Consitution reported.

CNBC has requested comment from Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, and a lawyer for Giuliani, who had served as Trump’s personal attorney.

The grand jury, which was impaneled in early May, is probing an effort by Trump and allies to reverse the victory of President Joe Biden in Georgia’s 2020 election.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is overseeing the investigation, told a judge in January that she had received information indicating a reasonable probability” that Georgia’s election “was subject to possible criminal disruptions.”

Willis said that information included reports that people “associated with these disruptions” contacted the state’s secretary of state, its attorney general, and the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.
