A special grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, has wrapped up its investigation of the 2020 presidential election and President Donald Trump following the dissolving of the jury via a court order, multiple sources are reporting.

According to Just the News, the jury was nixed by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, after a final report was submitted. Whether the final report will be released to the public will be determined following a scheduled hearing for Jan. 24.

The Associated Press noted in their report that the jury had reportedly been investigating whether President Donald Trump and his allies committed any crimes in the Peach State, with the investigation bringing in countless witness testimonies, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

In Georgia, a special grand jury does not have the authority to issue any indictments, but they can assemble a final report that can recommend to the court what actions should be taken, via the Associated Press.

The crux of the investigation rests largely on a phone call that took place between President Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in 2020, in which the two discussed irregularities and problems with the state’s election process.

“BOTH of my phone calls to Georgia were PERFECT,” Trump wrote in 2022, as reported by RSBN. “I had an absolute right to make them &, in fact, the story on the one call was given a retraction, or an apology, by the Washington Post because they were given terribly false information about it, & when they heard the actual call, they realized that their story was wrong.”

He noted in that same statement that he, as well as anyone else, had the “absolute right to challenge the results of an Election. This one, CORRUPT, RIGGED & STOLEN!”

Per the Associated Press, the decision on whether any indictments will be sought is up to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
