Judge says Gingrich must testify in Fulton County election probe

A judge has ordered former Georgia congressman and House Speaker Newt Gingrich to testify before a special grand jury in Atlanta.

The Fulton County grand jury, convened by Fulton DA Fani Willis, is investigating whether then-President Donald Trump and Republican allies illegally tried to influence the 2020 election in Georgia.

Gingrich lives in Virginia and has argued he shouldn’t have to testify. But Wednesday, a judge in Virginia ordered Gingrich to appear before the Georgia panel.

Gingrich’s lawyer says he expects to appeal the judge's ruling.
