Georgia election probe report to remain secret for now

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney speaks during a hearing Tuesday to decide if the final report by a special grand jury looking into possible interference in the 2020 presidential election can be released in Atlanta. 

ATLANTA (AP) — A judge said Tuesday that a final report produced by a special grand jury tasked with investigating whether then-President Donald Trump and his allies broke the law as they tried to overturn his 2020 election defeat in Georgia will remain under wraps for now.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney said he was considering whether to release the report after hearing arguments from prosecutors, who urged it be kept secret until they decide whether to file any charges, and a coalition of media organizations, which pressed for its release.
