(DCWatchdog.com) – Happening Now: Just moments ago, it was announced that Fulton County Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis had received the go-ahead by supervising judges to present evidence that she believes would prove that former President Donald J. Trump and other Republicans interfered with the 2020 Presidential Election in Georgia.
According to the Washington Times:
“A request for a special grand jury by the Georgia prosecutor who’s investigating whether former President Donald Trump and others broke the law by trying to pressure Georgia officials to throw out Joe Biden’s presidential election victory has been approved.
“Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis last week sent a letter to county superior court Chief Judge Christopher Brasher asking him to impanel a special grand jury. Brasher issued an order Monday saying the request was considered and approved by a majority of the superior court judges…
“Willis wrote in her letter to Brasher that her office ‘has received information indicating a reasonable probability that the State of Georgia’s administration of elections in 2020, including the State’s election of the President of the United States, was subject to possible criminal disruptions.’ She said her office has ‘opened an investigation into any coordinated attempts to unlawfully alter the outcome of the 2020 elections in this state.’” [emphasis added]
Additionally, according to reports, Willis is investigating and will present evidence to the special grand jury concerning the following:
- A Jan. 2, 2021, phone call between then President Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger
- A November 2020 phone call between U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and Raffensperger
- The abrupt resignation of the U.S. attorney in Atlanta on Jan. 4, 2021
- Statements made during December 2020 Georgia legislative committee hearings on the election
Whether the grand jury will indict Trump or anyone else will not be known for months as the grand jury will not be seated until May.
