Fulton County, Georgia may be the center of the next court battle for former President Donald Trump. A grand jury has been reportedly ordered to convene to discuss Trump’s actions in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
The investigation is being led by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D). The lead prosecutor for Atlanta’s home county is investigating Trump’s discussions with Georgia officials after the last election.
So far, Willis has asked for both former Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (R) and former state Sen. Jen Jordan (D) to testify before the grand jury.
Duncan told CNN this weekend that he would “be there to do my part in recounting the facts.”
He further said that he had “no expectations as to the questions, and I’ll certainly answer whatever questions are put in front of me.”

The district attorney is reportedly considering racketeering charges against the former president.
Meanwhile, Trump criticized Willis on the campaign trail and on social media.
He told a New Hampshire audience that the district attorney was a “young woman, a young racist in Atlanta. She’s a racist.”
“And they say, I guess they say that she was after a certain gang and she ended up having an affair with the head of the gang or a gang member,” he said. “And this is the person that wants to indict me. She’s got a lot of problems.”
Trump further wrote on Truth Social that Willis “is using a potential Indictment of me, and other innocent people, as a campaign and fundraising CON JOB, all based on a PERFECT PHONE CALL, AS PRESIDENT, CHALLENGING ELECTION FRAUD – MY DUTY & RIGHT!”
The possible Fulton County charges would come on the heels of the latest federal indictment of the former president by special counsel Jack Smith. Smith announced a number of charges related to Trump’s statements and actions after the November 2020 presidential election.
Should Willis file charges against Trump, it would be the fourth indictment of the former president this year. He also faces charges from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) over an alleged brief relationship with adult actress Stormy Daniels.
