[WATCH] Fulton County DA Says She’s ‘Considering’ Seeking Trump’s Testimony in GA Election Probe

The Georgia prosecutor investigating potential criminal interference in the 2020 presidential election is considering requesting former Donald Trump testify under oath to a special grand jury, while several Georgia Republicans already subpoenaed as part of the probe have received letters informing them that they’re at risk of being indicted.

Previously, when Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said she was “considering” doing something regarding the election fraud case, she followed it up with action. Just ask Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who’s going to have to give testimony against Trump after trying to fight his subpoena from Willis.

The Associated Press reported that Willis is considering subpoenaing Trump to testify before a special grand jury. Such a demand would almost certainly trigger an immediate court fight, including potentially over Trump’s constitutional protections against self-incrimination. Yahoo News had also reported earlier Friday that Willis is considering requesting Trump’s testimony.

Some people who had already been subpoenaed have subsequently received so-called target letters, according to a person familiar with the matter who insisted on anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. Prosecutors generally issue such letters to inform people they’ve been investigating that they have developed evidence against them and that they’re in jeopardy of being criminally charged.

The special grand jury was seated in May at Willis’ request and has been investigating whether Trump and others illegally tried to meddle in the 2020 election in Georgia as the Republican desperately tried to cling to power after his loss to Joe Biden. Trump continues to insist that the election was stolen, despite the fact that numerous federal and local officials, a long list of courts, top former campaign staffers, and even his own attorney general have all said there is no evidence of the fraud he alleges, a common thread linking all of the January 6th House Select Committee hearings.
