The district attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, who has been looking into potential criminal meddling in the 2020 election, will reveal her decision on whether to press charges “in the near future,” the DA informed law enforcement in a letter on Monday.
The letter from District Attorney Fani Willis stated that the notification was given “to ensure that our law enforcement community is ready to protect the public,” stressing that the disclosure “may provoke a significant reaction.”
According to Willis, the decisions will be made public between July 11 and September 1, 2023, or “during the Fulton County Superior Court’s fourth term of court.” The letter stated that it was our responsibility as leaders to be ready.

Willis formally began the investigation in February 2021, partly as a result of the now-famous Jan. 2, 2021 phone call that then-President Donald Trump placed to Brad Raffensperger, the secretary of state for Georgia, in which Trump begged Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes,” the precise number Trump needed to win Georgia.
Trump, who has criticized the investigation, has frequently defended his call to Raffensperger and described it as “perfect.” In its final report released in January, the special grand jury charged with the investigation stated that it had “by a unanimous vote found that no widespread fraud took place in the Georgia 2020 presidential election that could result in overturning that election.”
As @NormEisen explains, alleged misconduct by lawyers representing fake electors may be holding up “imminent” indictment in Georgia, but signs indicate cooperation by some electors that would benefit the prosecution. https://t.co/YpCOOx0N6R

Indictments should be sought against witnesses that the grand jury believes may have lied while testifying, according to sections of the grand jury’s findings that were made public. The grand jury stated in its findings that “a majority of the grand jury believes that perjury may have been committed by one or more witnesses testifying before it.”
“Where the evidence is strong, the Grand Jury recommends that the District Attorney seek appropriate indictments for such crimes.” No information on whether or whether the grand jury recommended changes for anyone involved in efforts to overturn the election was included in the portion of the report that was made publicly available.
