Georgia Court Denies Trump's Request to Block Grand Jury Report

The Georgia Supreme Court rejected former President Donald Trump's request to end a grand jury report against him over 2020 election concerns.

The unanimous decision involved actions in Fulton Country following President Joe Bidne's win in Georgia.

"The dismissal comes just weeks before Willis is expected to hand down criminal indictments in her investigation regarding alleged election interference by Trump and his team around the 2020 election. Trump's bid to block the report was seen as a long shot and was likely his last chance to stop or delay the indictments," the Washington Examiner reported.

"Trump's legal team had argued that the information obtained by the grand jury investigation was obtained unlawfully so should be discarded. Georgia's Supreme Court stated in its ruling that they didn't bring forward proper evidence," it added.

"[Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis] has signaled she will ask one of the juries to hand an indictment in the coming weeks. She has not indicated who could be charged in the probe. She previously signaled an indictment would be handed down in August," the Messenger reported.

"Willis’ probe is just one of several that the former president is facing as he attempts to make another run for the 2024 Republican nomination," it added.

Trump also faces more than three dozen charges involving classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago home during an FBI raid last year.

The former president also recently lost in a $5 million settlement involving claims of sexual abuse against author E. Jean Carroll from decades ago.

The growing list of charges has not yet hurt Trump's poll numbers. He leads nationally by a wide margin over the long list of GOP hopefuls.

The Georgia case adds to his legal battle but has so far done little to slow his plans to return to the White House.
