Fulton County DA May Request Trump Testify Under Oath as His Allies Are Notified They May Be Indicted: Report

Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis says she may request Donald Trump testify before her special criminal grand jury investigating attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

“Yes,” Willis told Yahoo News‘ Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman, “when asked if there was any chance Trump will be called to testify.”

“I think it’s something that we’re still weighing and evaluating,” she added.

That development comes as they report Willis’ office has sent “target” letters to several of Trump’s allies, “prominent Georgia Republicans,” “informing them they could be indicted for their role in a scheme to appoint alternate electors pledged to the former president despite Joe Biden’s victory in the state.”

GOP state Sen. Burt Jones, Georgia Republican Party chair David Shafer, and state Sen. Brandon Beach are all reportedly among the recipients of the letters.

“Jones and Shafer were among those who participate in a closed-door meeting at the state Capitol on Dec. 14, 2020, in which 16 Georgia Republicans selected themselves as the electors for the state, although they had no legal basis for doing so.”
