Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis suggested in a Tuesday afternoon court hearing that she could seek indictments in connection to a special purpose grand jury’s investigation into possible criminal interference in the state’s 2020 election.

Over a dozen media outlets filed a joint brief on Monday urging that the report be made available to the public. 

The brief notes that the investigation “has been one of enormous public interest not just to Georgians, but also to citizens throughout the US,” and says that the variety of media organizations filing the brief “reflect the profound public interest in this issue,” according to WSB-TV

“The Georgia Supreme Court has explicitly stated that it would ‘decline to extend the requirement of secrecy applicable to grand jury proceedings beyond that which is currently imposed by statute.’ Olsen, 302 Ga. at 291. There is no basis to do so here. The Media 19 Intervenors respectfully request that the Report be publicly filed and published as the special purpose grand jurors have requested.”  

Willis argued on Tuesday that “The state understands the media’s inquiry and the world’s interest. But we have to be mindful of protecting future defendants’ rights. If that report was released, there somehow could be arguments made that it impacts the right for later individuals, multiple, to get a fair trial.”
