( – The House Judiciary Committee launched an investigation into the investigation in Fulton County led by District Attorney Fani Willis. The probe had been looking into the attempts of Trump and his allies to overturn the election results in the state in 2020.

Following the investigation, a grand jury in Fulton County has indicted 19 defendants, including former President Donald Trump, Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, of a total of 41 charges including racketeering charges over their attempts to overturn the presidential election results.

In a letter sent to Willis on Thursday, Committee Chairman Jim Jordan pointed out that there were concerns over whether federal funds or federal law enforcement officials and agencies had been used for the investigation. He added that there were also concerns over Willis’ motives in bringing forward this case.

As part of the investigation, he has requested receipt for all federal funds used, as well as communications between Willi’s office and the Department of Justice and documents related to this case.

Specifically, he has also requested any documents and communications between Willis’ office and the office of Special Counsel Jack Smith who led a federal investigation into Trump’s attempts to overturn the presidential election and his role in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol attack.

He further pointed out that Trump’s indictment within the state could potentially be a threat to the federal government’s operations, especially considering the federal interests that were currently “at stake.”
