Earlier this month, the Fulton County special grand jury investigating potential criminal interference into Georgia's 2020 elections subpoenaed members of former President Donald Trump's inner circle, including Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, and Senator Lindsay Graham, among others.

To discuss these high profile subpoenas and some of the finer points of Georgia state criminal procedure, Lawfare managing editor Tyler McBrien sat down with Tamar Hallerman, reporter at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who is covering the Fulton County Trump probe, and who also formally served as the paper’s Washington correspondent covering the Trump administration. Tamar also hosts a weekly podcast on the special grand jury called Breakdown.

They discussed the scope of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis's criminal probe, how a special grand jury operates in the state of Georgia, what this one has been up to, and what's next for the investigation.
