District attorney Fani Willis announced she is seeking a grand jury to look into Trump trying to figure out what happened during the 2020 election.
The prosecutor for Georgiaâ€™s biggest county on Thursday requested a special grand jury with subpoena power to aid her investigation into former US president Donald Trumpâ€™s efforts to influence the stateâ€™s 2020 election results.
In a letter to Fulton countyâ€™s chief judge, first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper, district attorney Fani Willis wrote that multiple witnesses have refused to cooperate without a subpoena requiring their testimony.
â€œTherefore, I am hereby requesting â€¦ that a special purpose grand jury be impaneled for the purpose of investigating the facts and circumstances relating directly or indirectly to possible attempts to disrupt the lawful administration of the 2020 elections in the State of Georgia,â€ Willis wrote.
The investigation by Willis, a Democrat, is the most serious inquiry facing Trump in Georgia after he was recorded in a phone call pressuring Georgiaâ€™s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, to overturn the states election results based on unfounded claims of voter fraud.
Trump has officially responded saying “the people who committed the crime are being protected.”

“So let me get this straight, I am being investigated in Georgia for asking an Attorney General with many lawyers and others knowingly on the phone to look for corruption, which definitely took place in the Georgia Presidential electionâ€”but the people who committed the crime are in no way, shape, or form under investigation and are instead being protected? The people looking for the crime are being hounded and the people who committed the crime are being protected. This is not the American way.”
Of course, this grand jury is doing nothing to investigate the ballot harvesting that took place in Georgia:
