Tuesday an Atlanta judge will convene a hearing to decide on if they should release the special grand jury report into Donald Trump. The case pertains to the 2020 election and ultimately whether or not President Trump should face charges. The judge is said to be hearing arguments for both sides during the hearing. This comes after the special grand jury in the state spent 7 months creating their final report – which is likely to include some summary of their work, and recommendations based on those findings.
The jurors have recommended making the report public, and Fani Willis, the district attorney in Fulton county, which encompasses Georgia’s capital, is using its findings to determine whether to bring charges in the investigation, which has centered on the attempts by top Trump allies like attorney Rudy Giuliani and senator Lindsey Graham to convince state officials to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the state. It’s unclear if Willis is considering charges against Trump in the case. Attorneys for the former president said yesterday they will not attend the hearing, and that Trump has not committed any crimes.
According to CNN, Trump’s attorneys will not be participating in the hearing Tuesday. Though,
The judge will have to weigh the public’s interest in learning about efforts to interfere in the last presidential election against concerns that making the information public could hinder an ongoing investigation if the district attorney is pursuing indictments and that the release could disparage individuals who have not been charged with crimes.
