Georgia county launches criminal probe of Trump's effort to overturn election results - NYT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia have opened a criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the state's 2020 presidential election results and reverse his loss, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

The Times, citing a state official, said county prosecutor Fani Willis had sent a letter asking state government officials to preserve documents, including those related to Trump's call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger pressuring him to "find" more votes.
