More than half of the so-called Georgia Republican “fake electors” who convened to declare Donald Trump the winner of the state in the 2020 presidential election have accepted immunity deals from Fulton County prosecutors in their criminal investigation into Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the election.
A new court filing on Friday stated that Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis (D) extended “actual immunity offers to eight” of the 16 alternate electors represented by attorney Kimberly Debrow, guaranteeing that they “will not be charged with crimes if they testify truthfully,” The Washington Post reported.
“After reviewing the actual, written offers of immunity, each of those eight electors accepted their immunity offer,” said Debrow.
The New York Times reported that one additional elector represented by a different attorney also had an immunity deal already in place.
The investigation focuses on efforts to use alternate electors to block certification of the 2020 presidential election and what role Trump and his allies had in arranging the scheme.
Willis has notified law enforcement officials to prepare for possible indictments this summer as she expects to announce “charging decisions” during the Fulton County Superior Court’s fourth term of court, which spans July 11 to September 1.
Willis said in a letter to Fulton Sheriff Patrick Labat that there would be a need for “heightened security and preparedness” as intelligence indicated an announcement “may provoke a significant public reaction.”
The former president was indicted last month by a Manhattan grand jury on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records stemming from alleged hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. Those charges faced widespread backlash, including among some of Trump’s political opponents, who said that the case was an example of political persecution.

Federal prosecutors also have multiple criminal investigations open against Trump, including his efforts to overturn the 2020 election and his handling of classified information.
