Georgia special grand jury nears wrap up
The Georgia special grand jury is beginning to wrap up its investigation into former President Donald Trump and his allies' alleged attempt to illegally overturn the 2020 election results.
Over the last six months, the jurors have considered evidence and heard testimony from dozens of witnesses. Testimony was sought from former New York mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
John Eastman and additional lawyers who assisted Trump have also testified.
There is soon expected to be a final report with recommendations for further action. The special grand jury cannot issue indictments, only Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis can decide whether to proceed to a regular jury or pursue criminal charges.
Potential charges include 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.
The former president has continuously dismissed the investigation and his allies have denied any wrongdoing.
