Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Monday temporarily halted a subpoena issued by an Atlanta-area grand jury seeking Sen. Lindsey Graham’s testimony in its probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.
Thomas issued an order that will stay the Fulton County court’s subpoena “pending further order of the undersigned or of the Court.” The justice, who supervises the 11th Circuit, handed down the stay on his own — without indicating he’d referred the matter to the full court — which typically signals an order is administrative or interim.
