The Facts

  • Superior Court Judges have approved a request by Fani T. Willis - DA of Fulton County, Georgia - to form a special grand jury to investigate Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in that state.

  • The special grand jury would begin on May 2 and continue for up to 12 months.

The Spin

Pro-Trump narrative

Trump's phone call to Raffensperger was perfect. He was acting in the interests of the American people and in keeping with his oath to uphold the Constitution by asking state officials to investigate allegations of voter fraud.

Democratic narrative

The documented conduct of Trump and allies such as Sen. Lindsey Graham is evidence of a broad scheme to undermine the will of Georgia's voters, opening him to charges including racketeering, election fraud solicitation, and conspiracy to commit election fraud.
