Former President Donald Trump is facing potential “ criminal exposure ” in Georgia and two grand juries could almost issue subpoenas for information, in the final chapter in Trump’s legal woes.
Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating Trump’s alleged interference in the state election, where state officials confirmed Joe Biden’s victory.
The DailyBeast reported that two separate grand juries are investigating there and that the secret procedure would soon issue subpoenas.

“I suspect that is in the very near future,” Willis said.
Monday night, the former acting US attorney general told MSNBC that Trump is “ definitely looking at criminal exposure. ”
“Donald Trump is the only president who has more open grand juries than election victories,” he said joked
Katyal called the grand juries “a very serious prosecution step.” And the next step can be even more important.
“According to the news reports, it appears they are about to use their prying powers to sue the president – that is, get documents -” he explained.
“Donald Trump is the only president to have more open grand juries than election victories,” said former acting Attorney General Neal Katyal.

Donald Trump was supposed to toast a wedding at his country club, but he ended up talking about losing the 2020 election and the border crisis.
It was not immediately clear why two grand juries were investigating. “But if you’re Donald Trump now, it doesn’t look good,” he said.
MSNBC presenter Ari Melber, who interviewed Katyal, noted that election company Dominion could still press charges against Trump. The company has already sued Fox News and other outlets who released comments from Trump supporters who advanced conspiracy theories about election fraud with their product without providing any evidence.
Trump echoed his allegations of electoral fraud during a bizarre wedding toast for a couple in Mar-a-Lago over the weekend.
“They said they should get 66 million votes, sir, and the election is over. I got 75 million votes and you saw what happened, ” Trump told the crowd as he celebrated the couple with a microphone.
‘At 10.30 pm they suddenly said that that was strange, why are they closing certain places? A lot of things are happening right now, ”he said.
Some of Trump’s interactions with election officials and researchers during his election turnaround have been leaked since the November election.
In one, he told famous Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, “I just want to find 11,780 votes.” If Trump were ever to be charged, his lawyers would likely argue that he believed fraud had been committed and that he wanted officials to find it.
Democrats brought up the call in their impeachment attempt to “ instigate insurrection ” after the January 6 riot that resulted in Trump’s acquittal in the Senate.
Trump is also in legal jeopardy in New York, where Manhattan prosecutors have obtained information about his tax returns and conducted multiple interviews with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
