A Georgia judge rejected former President Trump’s attempt to end an investigation into his alleged efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results.
The Hill has more:
“The movants’ asserted ‘injuries’ that would open the doors of the courthouse to their claims are either insufﬁcient or else speculative and unrealized,” Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney wrote in the nine-page ruling.
“They are insufﬁcient because, while being the subject (or even target) of a highly publicized criminal investigation is likely an unwelcome and unpleasant experience, no court ever has held that that status alone provides a basis for the courts to interfere with or halt the investigation.”
The ruling marks the second roadblock for Trump in his efforts to dismiss the probe. Earlier this month, the state’s supreme court rejected another suit seeking to block it.
