Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney bludgeoned himself in the courtroom after signing a grand jury’s decision authorizing 10 felony indictments against a former president.
“Good. Thanks Sheriff,” said the judge. “Good luck the rest of the afternoon. (I appreciate it.) You bet. That’s it. Was it all you hoped it would be?
“You can tell us what it says

A Georgia grand jury had just finished looking into former President Donald Trump’s actions regarding the results of the 2020 election in the Peach State and issued 10 indictments on Monday.
After nearly 10 hours of testimony and deliberations on possible charges, the bill was presented to Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, who approved the charges shortly before 9 p.m.
Earlier in the day, there appeared to be a premature release of possible charges against Trump by the Clerk of Court’s office. A document detailing those allegations was temporarily accessed on the Fulton County court website before it was pulled. The alleged charges also cited a violation of the state’s “RICO Act” and an additional charge related to Trump’s alleged pressure on a public official to break his “oath of office.”
That list detailed 13 charges against the 77-year-old former president, including “violation of the Peach State’s anti-extraction law,” “conspiracy,” “false statements” and “soliciting a public official that he violated his oath.” ex officio”.
The exact timing for the filing of the official indictment by the secretariat remained uncertain. It was also not immediately clear whether Trump, or significant figures connected to him, such as former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, would face charges.
Although the grand jury was originally scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, its deliberations concluded sooner than expected. George Chidi, a freelance journalist, shared via a tweet that he was initially ordered to appear on Tuesday, but was summoned on Monday afternoon and later released without recognizance.
In response, the Trump campaign blasted Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, calling her a “rabid partisan” and comparing her to other prosecutors who have brought charges against Trump since the presidency.
