The Atlanta prosecutor investigating former President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn Georgia’s election results received approval to convene a special-purpose grand jury to hear evidence.

The approval of the special panel, which came in an order filed Monday by Fulton County Chief Judge Christopher S. Brasher, clears the way for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to subpoena witnesses, something Willis has said is necessary because key witnesses are refusing to cooperate otherwise.
