The First Grand Jury could not make any charges….
Their info will be used by Fulton County DA Fani Willis for charges in a current Grand Jury that WILL hand down indictments….
It appears that Trump and those helping him want to trash the first groups conclusions in order to derail the DA’s upcoming criminal charges…..
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is asking a Georgia court to dismiss Donald Trump’s request to toss the final report and evidence from a special grand jury that spent months investigating efforts by the former president and his allies attempting to overturn the 2020 election.

Trump and others seeking to quash the special grand jury’s work “are not content to follow the ordinary course of the law,” Willis wrote in a court filing.
“They seek to ‘restrain’ a criminal investigation before any charges are filed or even sought; they ask that the judicial system place them above and apart from the common administration of the criminal law; and they do so by raising arguments for which they have no standing, or which they failed to timely join, or which they have already failed, or which have no basis in law at all,” she wrote.
Attorneys for Trump had asked in March for a judge at the Superior Court of Atlanta to quash the special grand jury’s work and disqualify the district attorney’s office from pursing any charges related to the sprawling investigation.
Willis, a Democrat, responded on Monday that Trump’s motions are “procedurally flawed” and should be “dismissed or denied as appropriate.”
“Overall, the Motions are procedurally flawed and advance arguments that lack merit, and the State respectfully requests that this Court retain supervision of this matter and dismiss or deny the motions as appropriate without a hearing,” Willis said in the court filing.
Cathy Latham, one of the 16 Republicans who served as “fake electors” in a plan to subvert the Electoral College in Georgia, also joined Trump’s lengthy motion in an effort to intervene in the long-running investigation by the Fulton district attorney…
