Trump attorneys are trying to block Georgia grand jury’s final report in a bid to overturn the election
Trump attorneys seek to BLOCK final Georgia grand jury report on bid to overturn election: Attorneys urge Fulton County prosecutors to withdraw as they ‘consider racketeering and conspiracy allegations’
- Trump attorneys filed a motion to block the final report in Georgia
- The filing comes amid reports prosecutors are considering racketeering charges
- Seeks rejection of Fani Willis; comes amid the latest Stormy Daniels case
Attorneys for President Donald Trump filed a motion in a Georgia court to block the report prepared by a special grand jury while forcing the Fulton County prosecutor to be removed from the case entirely.
The brazen legal move comes amid reports that Georgia prosecutors are considering racketeering and conspiracy charges in their probe into the 2020 election effort by Trump and some of his allies.
The motion would “preclude the use of any evidence derived from the report” – and comes after the jury’s predecessor publicly hinted that multiple people could be indicted in the case.
The legal maneuvering in Georgia comes days after Trump posted on his Truth Social website that he will be arrested Tuesday and called for protests in connection with Stormy Daniels’ “hush money” scheme, amid tense preparations in Manhattan for possible charges there.
Attorneys for former President Donald Trump filed a motion to “overturn” or block the final report of a special Georgia grand jury investigating electoral subversion attempts by Trump and some of his allies
The Georgia submission Demands the court ensure the removal of Fulton County DA Fani Willis, who has been the subject of repeated Trump attacks, and demands that she be “barred from any further involvement in this matter.”
Trump’s attorney, Drew Findling, told the New York Times that he filed on his client’s behalf.
The special grand jury heard testimony in the case for months beginning in May, although a separate grand jury would actually hear indictments.
The jury’s forewife, Emily Kohrs, attracted attention with a series of media appearances – including one in which she said it would have been a “great moment” if she could summon Trump after a subpoena.
She also appeared to imply that there could be multiple charges in the case.
“Can you imagine doing this for eight months and not coming out with a whole list of recommended charges,” Kohrs told CNN last month. “It’s not a short list. It is not.’
There had been indications that Trump’s legal team would seek to have any charges dropped, in part citing media statements about the case. Trump called it a “kangaroo dish” at the time.

The move comes after Trump said he could be arrested Tuesday in connection with a separate case in Manhattan involving prosecutor Alvin Bragg investigating “hush money” to pornstar Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump. Trump denies their allegations
Emily Kohrs, a prep for the Atlanta-based grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election, went on a media tour during which she offered clues about possible indictments
“I wanted to hear from the former president, but honestly I wanted to subpoena the former president because I had to swear everyone in,” she said. “And so I thought it would be really cool to have 60 seconds with President Trump where I look at him and say, ‘Solemnly swear,’ and I can swear him in,” she continued
Willis has investigated behavior surrounding efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election results, including the former president’s infamous phone call with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which he urged him to “only find 11,780 votes.” .
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which spoke to several members of the Special Grand Jury, reported that the members also heard a recording of an additional Trump call to former Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, who is now deceased.
The former Republican spokesman cut Trump off, according to a grand juror, telling Trump, “I will do everything in my power as I see fit.”
According to the Times, experts say Willis is building a case that “could charge multiple defendants with conspiracy to voter fraud or racketeering.”
CNN also reported that prosecutors were investigating racketeering and conspiracy charges.
