Why it matters: The report provides new insight into the probe into 2020 election interference — and shows that the panel sought to indict more people in the sprawling racketeering case.
- The special grand jury recommended charges against Trump and many of his allies who were named in the indictment, but it also recommended charges against others, including: former Georgia Sen. David Perdue, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The big picture: The report comes after Trump was indicted last month with 18 others in Georgia.
- The 26-member special grand jury, which is different than the grand jury that indicted Trump and his associates, spent about seven months hearing from 75 witnesses as part of the investigation.
- Some of Trump’s closest allies, including former lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, testified before the special grand jury and were indicted along with the ex-president last month.
Flashback: Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ordered a partial release of the grand jury’s investigation in February, but the partial release did not include any names or details on recommendations for charges of election interference.”
