Trump Claims to Receive ‘Total Exoneration’ in Georgia Grand Jury Report

“President Trump will always keep fighting for true and honest elections in America!” read a Trump campaign statement.

  • Donald Trump claimed the partial release of Georgia’s Special Purpose Grand Jury Final Report gave him “total exoneration” of any alleged wrongdoing during the 2020 election.
  • “The long awaited important sections of the Georgia report, which do not even mention President Trump’s name, have nothing to do with the President because President Trump did absolutely nothing wrong,” reads a Trump campaign statement.
  • “The president participated in two perfect phone calls regarding election integrity in Georgia, which he is entitled to do — in fact, as president, it was President Trump’s constitutional duty to ensure election safety, security, and integrity,” the statement continued.
  • “Between the two calls, there were many officials and attorneys on the line, including the Secretary of State of Georgia, and no one objected, even slightly protested, or hung up. President Trump will always keep fighting for true and honest elections in America!” it went on to say.
  • Leading the investigation is Fani Willis, whom Trump has called a “radical left prosecutor.”
  • The investigation was prompted by Trump’s 2021 phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger where Trump asked Raffensperger to “find” votes.
  • Former Atlanta homicide detective Vincent Velazquez describes Willis as a “pit bull in the courtroom.” He said, “You give her an inch, she’s going to take a foot.”
  • Willis used Georgia’s racketeering statute in the investigation, a law targeting organized crime.
  • Jay Abt, a criminal defense lawyer representing witnesses in the investigation, voiced concerns that “There is an overuse and abuse of the statute.”
  • American Faith reported that Trump was reinstated on Facebook and Instagram.
  • Trump has not yet posted anything on his reinstated accounts, preferring to use only Truth Social.
