It Is Getting Ugly For Trump In Georgia
As Trump spends seemingly his every waking second attacking the 1/6 case against him, the Georgia investigation grinds forward toward indictment.

Georgia On Our Minds
The 1/6 Trump indictment has consumed the news because it is that important to law and order, democracy, and accountability. The situation playing out in Fulton County, Georgia is getting less attention, but it is also very important to democracy.
For example, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that former Georgia Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan has been subpoenaed to testify:
Former Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan has received a subpoena to testify as a witness before a Fulton County grand jury that could deliver indictments against former President Donald Trump and his allies this month.
Duncan told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday that he has yet to receive a date to meet with grand jurors, but he added on social media that he would “share the facts as I know them around this investigation in hopes of figuring out what really happened.”
That’s viewed as an indication that he will agree to testify — something he didn’t initially do when he received a subpoena last year to speak to a separate special grand jury that probed whether Trump violated Georgia law with his attempt to overturn his 2020 election defeat.
Duncan decided not to run for a second term as Lt. Governor, and he has been an outspoken Republican critic of Donald Trump and Trumpism.
He is also one of the state’s former top officials who was a witness to Trump’s scheme/pressure campaign to overturn the state’s election result in 2020.
That would be some pretty bad news on its own for Trump, but wait, there’s more.
