Georgia D.A. Requests Grand Jury for Trump Probe for Election Interference
In Georgia, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has requested a special grand jury to probe whether Donald Trump or his allies committed a crime when they pressured Georgia election officials to overturn Joe Biden’s win.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has sparked outrage over comments he made to reporters Wednesday, just before Republicans successfully filibustered voting rights legislation for the fifth time in six months.
Reporter: “What’s your message for voters of color who are concerned that without the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act, they’re not going to be able to vote in the midterm?”
Minority Leader Mitch McConnell: “Well, the concern is misplaced, because if you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans.”
Kentucky Democrat Charles Booker, who unsuccessfully ran for McConnell’s Senate seat in the 2020 election, tweeted, “I am no less American than Mitch McConnell.”
