The investigation, which started a month ago, is looking into whether Trump broke the law when he called the Georgia Secretary of State on Jan. 2 and asked him to “find” more Trump votes. Atlanta lawyer John Floyd worked with Willis previously on a 2015 racketeering case in which 11 teachers and school officials were convicted of lying about test scores.
