The Georgia special grand jury investigation into former President Donald Trump and his allies' attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results has concluded, according to the Atlanta-area judge overseeing it.

"Given the special purpose grand jury's delivery of its final report, the undersigned's recommendation, and the Superior Court bench's vote, it is the ORDER of this court that the special purpose grand jury now stands DISSOLVED," wrote Judge Robert McBurney in Monday's short court order.

The investigation probed whether Trump himself and/or his allies, engaged in criminal efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia. Since special grand juries in Georgia are not authorized to issue indictments, the panel will issue a final report that serves as a tool for the special grand jury to recommend whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should pursue indictments in her election interference investigation.

Following the report, Willis can then go to a regularly empaneled grand jury to seek indictments.

The special grand jury was dissolved almost a year after Willis began her investigation in 2021 after a January call became public in which Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find" the votes necessary for Trump to win Georgia in the presidential election.

The nearly two dozen members of the grand jury have been investigating the matter for more than six months. It remains unclear if any criminal recommendations will come from their probe.

The high-profile case has featured testimony from Trump allies like Rudy Giuliani, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Georgia state leaders Gov. Brian Kemp, Raffensperger, and others, also testified.

"The court thanks the grand jurors for their dedication, professionalism, and significant commitment of time and attention to this matter," McBurney wrote in the order. "It was no small sacrifice to serve."

A hearing is slated for Jan. 24 to decide whether the report should be made public. McBurney said that the special grand jury recommended that its final report be accessible to the public.
