The grand jury was convened to investigate Trump’s now-infamous phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he asked Raffensperger to “find” him nearly 12,000 votes, one more than was needed to overturn President Joe Biden’s win in the state.
The jury is also investigating a scheme to install false electors and unfounded claims of voter fraud by Trump’s associates.
