Georgia grand jurorA special grand jury in Georgia reportedly heard a recording of Donald Trump attempting to get then-state House Speaker David Ralston to convene a special session of the legislature to overturn Joe Biden’s narrow 2020 election win in the state.

Ralston, who has since passed away, reportedly deflected the outgoing president’s request, allegedly telling Mr Trump, “I will do everything in my power that I think is appropriate,” according to jurors who spoke with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which first reported the news of the call.

A special session was never called, though Republicans in the state did organise a plan to serve as unauthorised fake electors and cast their votes in the Electoral College for Donald Trump, even though Mr Biden won the state’s vote.The jurors have previously focused on other calls Mr Trump made in 2020 to state officials, including an infamous recording of the president asking Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” him enough votes to win.
