(TargetLiberty.org) – A judge has rejected former President Donald Trump’s attempts to block Fani Willis, the Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney from indicting him in connection to her investigation into his attempts to influence the 2020 presidential election.

Willis’ probe is looking into whether Trump’s now infamous phone call to Brad Raffensberger, the Georgia Secretary of State, in which he demanded that he “find” the necessary votes for the presidential elections to be overturned was in fact a violation of the state election interference law.

The state’s district attorney has not yet announced whether Trump was going to be indicted in connection to this case, but she has provided a timeline arguing that any charges would be filed before September 1. She has also indicated that after the more than two-year investigation, her office was now ready to take action in this case.

Former President Trump has maintained that he committed no wrongdoings in connection to this case and that the case against him was completely politically motivated. In March he had also filed a motion against the grand jury’s final report arguing that the evidence that the grand jury discovered should not be used by any prosecuting agency, including Willis and to block her from investigating the 2020 election interference claims any further.

On Monday, Judge Robert C.I. McBurney rejected this claim arguing that it was not allowed by “statutory or case law” for the findings of the grand jury to be silenced. He added that further evidence would need to be provided to justify this request.
