The district attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, will soon determine whether to bring charges against former President Donald Trump or allies who backed his effort to overturn the 2020 election, she said Tuesday, asking a judge not to publicly release a report that would say whether or not there’s evidence of a crime—and suggesting multiple people could be indicted.
McBurney still hasn’t determined yet whether or not to make the report public, and it’s unclear when he’ll issue a decision. The special grand jury that was convened to investigate the election doesn’t actually have the power to bring charges against anyone itself, but Willis will use its recommendations to determine if a second, regular grand jury should be convened and consider whether to indict anyone. In addition to Trump, “fake” electors who submitted a false slate of electors to Congress claiming Trump won the state have also been informed they’re targets of the investigation and could face charges, as has attorney Rudy Giuliani.
