Holy crap, breaking news on MSNBC.

Willis does not want the Special Grand Jury report released because it could harm the investigation and most importantly she said this. She said this to the judge.

Decisions are imminent. That means, about to happen. That means indictments are about to happen.

2. I have thought all along that if she wanted to prosecute she would not want the

public release. This bodes well, I think.

The fewer details floating around in the news, the less any potential jury pool might know beforehand. Smart.

19. From NPR today

At least 17 people so far have been informed they could be prosecuted for their actions, including the 16 fake electors and Giuliani. Willis has been disqualified from investigating one of the sham electors, newly elected Lt. Gov. Burt Jones, after Jones argued a fundraiser that Willis hosted for his eventual general election opponent created a conflict of interest.

During the 26 member grand jury's term, Willis sent target letters to people she is investigating related to the fake electors plot. These include two Republican officials — State Senator Brandon Beach and David Shafer, chairman of the Georgia Republican Party — and the 16 people who falsely presented themselves as electors.

44. From CNBC Today

Georgia DA investigating Trump for 2020 election interference says charging ‘decisions are imminent’ after grand jury report

The Georgia prosecutor investigating former President Donald Trump and his allies for possible criminal interference in that state’s 2020 presidential election told a judge Tuesday that decisions on whether and whom to charge in the probe “are imminent.”

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis cited that plan during a hearing in Atlanta, where she urged the judge to keep sealed — for now — a final special grand jury report that was assembled to gather evidence and hear testimony from 75 witnesses for that investigation.

A consortium of media outlets has asked Judge Robert McBurney to make the report public, as the grand jury has recommended.

42. Look up the definition of imminent.

That's exactly what it means, about to happen.

Now when you have a judge who could not make a yes or no decision today, that could slow things down.

52. what she said was even more damming

She said it could harm the defendants' rights to a fair trial when they are tried. Meaning, she is going to indict and there will be defendants. It could also give them grounds for appeal if they lose.
