Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp Must Testify to Grand Jury About Efforts to Overturn 2020 Election

HeadlineAug 30, 2022

In Georgia, the judge overseeing the grand jury probe into Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election has rejected a bid by Republican Governor Brian Kemp to quash a subpoena for his testimony. However, the Fulton County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that Kemp will not have to testify until after November’s midterm elections, where he faces Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams. The special grand jury was requested by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis earlier this year. Last week, Willis sought grand jury subpoenas for Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and former Trump legal adviser Sidney Powell.
