Georgia Court Rejects Trump Request To Bar State

The Georgia Supreme Court denied former President Donald Trump’s bid to avoid officials from punishing him for his efforts to overturn his loss in the state’s 2020 presidential election tally.

In a unanimous decision, the court denied Trump’s attorneys’ request to intervene in the lawsuit, which they filed last week. The attorneys urged that a special grand jury report should be thrown out and that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s prosecution should be suspended.

You must check out some of the other latest news we’ve lately covered:

Willis began his investigation after Trump pleaded with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in January 2021 to “find” the votes he needed to win the state. According to a House of Representatives inquiry, Trump attempted to call him more than a dozen times, but the official avoided answering the phone. The district attorney has indicated that she may file charges in the case. In August, a grand jury was formed to investigate the case.

The state Supreme Court in its ruling this week said Trump’s filing didn’t have “the facts or the law necessary to mandate Willis’s disqualification by this Court at this time on this record.” The court also found the push from Trump’s attorneys didn’t prove his constitutional rights were violated.
