Fulton County Grand Jury Will Hear Testimony In Trump Election Fraud Investigation From At Least 50 Witnesses

Grand Jurors are scheduled to hear closed-door testimony from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Thursday, according to his subpoena, which was obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution through an open records request.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has been overseeing the extensive criminal investigation into efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 presidential election which is heating up weeks after the seating of a special purpose grand jury with subpoena power. The New York Times reported that the grand jury expects to send out at least 50 subpoenas in connection with their inquiry.

They also filed separate subpoenas to interview five of Raffensperger’s current and former top aides, including Deputy Secretary of State Gabe Sterling, the week of June 6th, and at least one state senator later in the month. Republicans in Washington could take a note from Sterling, who explained why he wasn’t fighting his subpoena to a local Atlanta news station. “You comply with subpoenas,” Sterling told Channel 2 Action News, which first reported news of his subpoena. “You go in there, you tell the truth, follow the law and that’s what this office always does and will continue to do.”

The AJC reports that Raffensperger is at the center of at least two of the events being examined by Fulton County prosecutors. The first is the notorious hour-long phone call Trump placed to him on January 2, 2021, in which he repeatedly pressed Raffensperger to “find” 11,780 votes to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s win in Georgia. The other event took place in November 2020 just after the election when Trump ally Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called Raffenpserger, who said  Graham had questioned him, as election officials conducted a recount and audit of the presidential race, about whether he had the power to disqualify more absentee ballots based on mismatched signatures.
