( – The first session of a grand jury that will evaluate the necessity of criminal indictments against ex-President Donald Trump was convened in Atlanta this Tuesday.

This follows the investigative efforts of District Attorney Fani Willis from Fulton County, which began when it was revealed that Trump had implored Brad Raffensperger, Georgia Secretary of State, in 2021 to “find” the requisite votes to reverse the state’s presidential election outcome.

The inquiry centers on the notorious phone call, as well as efforts by Trump’s associates to assemble counterfeit electors and pursue other maneuvers. These actions could potentially form the basis for a criminal lawsuit against Trump. Thus far, Willis’s office has negotiated plea agreements with eight fake electors in the state.

In addition to this, Trump is also contending with other legal issues. There are already 37 federal charges against him pertaining to alleged improper handling of classified documentation post his 2021 departure from the White House. He also faces 34 charges of business record falsification in New York, linked to a payment made prior to the 2016 presidential election to an adult entertainment actress.

Furthermore, Trump is subject to another federal probe concerning his participation in the Capitol riot on January 6. However, this investigation is entirely distinct from the one in Georgia.

The inaugural 23-member grand jury was formed on Tuesday. They are tasked with the deliberation of whether Trump or his confidantes should be served any criminal charges in relation to the Georgia incident. As per Willis’s earlier statements, any decision to indict Trump is to be made during this grand jury term, which is expected to conclude on September 1.
