Fulton DA asks feds for security help with Trump investigation

A Georgia prosecutor investigating former President Donald Trump is asking the FBI for help with security.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating whether Trump and his allies attempted to improperly influence the 2020 election in Georgia. With a special grand jury set to be seated in early May, and the former President railing against Willis and other prosecutors, the DA asked the FBI Sunday for a risk assessment of county judicial facilities as well as intelligence and protective resources.

Willis said that her office is also working with Fulton County to find and address security concerns.
