As Charges Loom, Judge Rejects Trump's Bid to Quash Georgia Probe

This happened just days before criminal charges are expected to be filed

A Georgia judge on Monday rejected former U.S. President Donald Trump's bid to quash an investigation into whether he illegally interfered with the state's 2020 election, just days before criminal charges are expected to be filed.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney denied Trump's request to disqualify the lead prosecutor, block any potential indictments and throw out a special grand jury report that included recommendations on whom to charge.

The report has remained sealed under McBurney's orders pending charges in the case, one of many legal troubles Trump faces. Separately in Miami, a Trump aide appeared in federal court on Monday to face charges he tried to help the former president hide classified documents by deleting security camera footage.
