Fulton County DA Announces Next Step in Trump Investigation

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis announces that her investigation into Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the Fulton County election results in the 2020 Presidential Election has appointed a grand jury...

One year after the Democrat announced she was probing the actions of Trump and his allies here, prosecutors are turning their attention to a newly approved special purpose grand jury that can authorize subpoenas to compel testimony from more reticent witnesses.
“We realize that we’re coming to a place that there are enough people that will require a subpoena for us to speak to or for us to be able to get information,” Willis told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday in an exclusive interview.
The comments are some of Willis’ most extensive about the criminal probe since a group of Fulton County judges greenlit her request for a special grand jury, unlocking a rarely used prosecutorial tool that her team can use for up to a year.
