At the end of a 90-minute hearing, an Atlanta judge did not rule on whether to release the findings of the special grand jury investigating attempts by Donald Trump and his allies to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory in Georgia.

“It’s not easy – said Robert McBurney, the Fulton county judge who examined the matter – I think the fact that we had to discuss for 90 minutes whether to make public an investigation into alleged interference by a former president to try to overturning an electoral result is already an extraordinary event in itself. My suggestion is that we think about it for a while and then reach out to both parties if I have specific questions that I would like more information on,” McBurney said, adding that if he decides to make the report public, he will give notice before doing so. “No one – said McBurney – will wake up hearing the news from the newspapers”.

Several media organizations have asked McBurney to release the document, which could establish whether jurors believe Trump and his allies committed crimes when they lobbied officials in Georgia to overturn a Biden victory.

Fani Willis, the Fulton County district attorney who initiated the investigation, opposed the release of the report, saying: “We want to make sure everyone is treated fairly and we think future defendants are treated fairly, it’s not appropriate at this time to publish this report.” She also added that “a decision is imminent” on the report’s findings.

In Georgia, the findings of a special grand jury must be sent to a “regular” grand jury to trigger indictments. The special grand jury jurors unanimously voted to make their findings public.
