Grand Jury Concludes Trump Investigation

( – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, it was announced that the special grand jury in Georgia investigating former President Donald Trump’s actions surrounding the 2020 Presidential Election has concluded its work and has been disbanded.

According to AP News:

“The special grand jury investigating whether then-President Donald Trump and his allies committed any crimes while trying to overturn his defeat has finished its work.

“Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, who was overseeing the panel, issued an order Monday dissolving the special grand jury. The order says the grand jurors completed a final report and that a majority of the county’s superior court judges voted to dissolve the special grand jury.

“Over the course of about six months, the special grand jury has heard testimony from dozens of witnesses, including numerous close Trump associates and assorted high-ranking Georgia state officials. The case is among several around the country that threaten legal peril for the former president as he seeks a second term in 2024.” [emphasis added]

According to the report, the special grand jury does not have the power to issue indictments. It can only give a report recommending what actions, if any, should be taken by officials.

It will now be up to the local district attorney to decide whether to impanel another grand jury to seek criminal charges.
