Former Lt. Governor of Georgia Geoff Duncan confirmed on Saturday that he has been subpoenaed to testify before a Fulton County grand jury.
"I can confirm that I have been requested to testify before the Fulton County grand jury on Tuesday. I look forward to answering their questions around the 2020 election," he wrote in a social media post.
"Republicans should never let honesty be mistaken for weakness," he added.
Mr. Duncan didn't respond to a request for more details from The Epoch Times. He told ABC News that he doesn't have any further information for now.
The Epoch Times has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
The latest development indicates that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is wrapping up her investigation into former president Donald Trump's efforts to challenge the reported ballot counts in the 2020 presidential election.
Mrs. Willis's office has been working on the case for two and a half years.
The attorney general told a local news outlet in July that she would make "big decisions" about the election probe before September.
"I made a commitment to the American people, but most importantly the citizens of Fulton County, that we're going to make some big decisions regarding the election investigation and that I will do that before Sept. 1 of 2023. I'm going to hold true to that commitment," she said.
Trump's Legal Battles Amid Reelection BidPresident Trump is campaigning to go back to the White House after he left there in 2020, when he promised an "orderly transition" to a new White House while saying he would "continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted." But he now has to fight several criminal cases, which weren't a factor during his 2016 campaign.
Besides the Fulton County investigation, President Trump has been charged in three criminal cases: the hush money case in New York County, the Mar-a-Lago documents case in Florida, and the Jan. 6 election case in the District of Columbia.
U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Florida Aileen Cannon has set the trials for the Mar-a-Lago documents case to start as early as May 20 next year. A pretrial hearing will be held on May 14.
President Trump's hush money case will start on March 25, 2024, in the New York state court.
It's still unclear when will the trials for the Jan. 6 election case will start, although Special Counsel Jack Smith's office has requested to the judge that it begin as early as Jan. 2 next year.
Judge Issues Gag OrderU.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Tanya Chutkan on Friday opposed the request by prosecutors to bar former President Donald Trump from revealing non-sensitive evidence provided to him by prosecutors ahead of the trial on whether he conspired to illegally obstruct the counting of the 2020 electoral votes.
The gag order is binding to both sides. Parties must seek the court's authorization to release "sensitive information" in an unredacted manner in court or in public filings.
