Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis filed a request Thursday for a special grand jury to be convened in the ongoing case against Donald Trump and his efforts to nullify 2020’s election results in the state. A special grand jury would be able to focus exclusively on this investigation, whereas the work of regular grand juries covers many cases at a time. A Brookings Institution analysis last year determined that Trump’s behavior in Georgia put him “at substantial risk of possible state charges” such as racketeering, election fraud solicitation, intentional interference with the performance of election duties and conspiracy to commit election fraud.
