Trump election probe grand jury believes some witnesses lied
February 17, 2023
ATLANTA - A special grand jury investigating efforts by then-President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn his 2020 election loss in Georgia says it believes "one or more witnesses" committed perjury and urged local prosecutors to bring charges.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should ''seek appropriate indictments for such crimes where the evidence is compelling,'' according to portions of the special grand jury's final report that were released on Thursday.
Those sections are silent on key details, including who the panel believes committed perjury and what other specific charges should be pursued. But it marks the first time the grand jurors' recommendations for criminal charges tied to the case have been made public. And it's a reminder of the intensifying legal challenges facing the former president as he ramps up his third White House bid amid multiple legal investigations.
