Judge Drops Some Charges Against Trump

A Fulton County judge has dismissed several counts in a case involving former President Donald Trump and five others accused of attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.


The judge ruled that six counts, including three against Trump, lacked specificity regarding the alleged wrongdoing. Trump's lawyer and others argued that the prosecution lacked detail and was politically motivated. The dismissed counts related to soliciting state officials to violate their oaths of office without specifying the violations.


Meanwhile, there's a separate request to disqualify the district attorney's office due to an alleged improper relationship between the district attorney and one of the special prosecutors. The relationship was acknowledged but claimed to have begun after the special prosecutor's appointment. The judge is expected to rule on the disqualification request soon.


Trump's prosecution in Fulton County is just one of four he is facing in federal and state courts. A trial is set to begin later this month in New York City stemming from allegations he falsified business records in connection with a "hush money" payment to suppress damaging information about him before the 2016 presidential election.
