Donald Trump may soon face criminal charges as Georgia election probe wraps up
Atlanta, Georgia - Former President Donald Trump may soon be facing criminal charges as a Georgia Grand Jury has completed its probe into his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.
Judge Robert McBurney of the Fulton County Superior Court ruled on Monday that the investigation into Trump's efforts has been completed, and its report has satisfactorily fulfilled its intent, as reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
McBurney also noted that the majority of Supreme Court justices who reviewed the report agreed with his ruling.
The move effectively dissolves the grand jury that consists of 26 members and was created by the county's district attorney Fani Willis about a year ago.
Willis launched the investigation in February 2021, which was authorized to "investigate any and all facts and circumstances relating directly or indirectly to alleged violations of the laws."
Particularly, the investigation looked into a call Trump placed to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2, 2021, in which he pressured the official to "find" 11,780 votes in an effort to overturn the results in Georgia.
Judge Robert McBurney has scheduled a hearing for January 24 to decide if the finalized report should be released to the public.
