Georgia prosecutor is asking the Fulton county DA Fani Willis and the county’s Chief Judge for a grand jury to go after Trump for possible interference in the 2020 Election.
• The DA asked the Judge to impanel the special grand Jury because “information indicating a reasonable probability” that the Georgia election was subject to possible criminal disruptions.
• Georgia DA Willis said in the past that the investigation includes a January 2nd phone call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger saying, ” I just want to find 11,780 votes.”
• DA Willis sent a letter to Raffensperger, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan, and Attorney General Chris Carr alerting them of her investigation.
• She wrote on Thursday, in requesting the special grand Jury, that “a significant number of witnesses and prospective witnesses have refused to cooperate with the investigation absent a subpoena requiring their testimony.”
• Secretary of State says he is willing to testify in the investigation. Telling NBC anchor Chuck Todd, “if she wants to interview me, there’s a process for that, and I will gladly participate in that because I want to make sure that I follow the law, follow the Constitution And when you get a grand jury summons, you respond to it.”
• If a Grand Jury is to be assembled, it will be allowed to investigate for as long as it’s needed but will not have any power to indict.
• One power it would have is to recommend criminal prosecutions as it sees fit.
• The DA says that Trump is being accused of “solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”
