ATLANTA — At least eight of Georgia’s «fake voters» were granted immunity in the Fulton County District Attorney’s investigation of former President Donald Trump and his allies regarding alleged interference in the 2020 election, according to a new filing. judicial.

More than a dozen people signed a certificate falsely stating that Trump had won Georgia in the 2020 election and declared themselves «duly elected and qualified» electors of Georgia. Georgia has 16 electors in the Electoral College.

The eight unidentified people agreed to interviews with prosecutors, seven of which were completed between April 11 and 14, according to the file.

«Based on the details of the actual immunity offers that addressed some of the attorney’s prior concerns and the attorney’s current assessment of the risks and benefits of the immunity offers, all eight voters who were offered immunity have accepted,» says the presentation.

Subsequently, an interview will be scheduled for the eighth voter, who was out of the country at that time.

The disclosure of the immunity agreements came in a motion opposing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s effort to disqualify attorneys and impose penalties, which was filed Friday by attorney Kimberly Debrow, who represented some of the voters.

Debrow countered apparent concerns that voters had framed each other, writing: “All voters stand united in their collective innocence and defense, and none testified or believes that they or any other voter committed any wrongdoing, let alone ‘criminal acts’. ‘”

Debrow did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

The eight immunity agreements that came to light Friday are not the first in the district attorney’s investigation into alleged election interference.

Special grand jury foreman Emily Kohrs told NBC News in February that some witnesses testified with immunity agreements already in place, noting that a dozen witnesses had obtained some form of immunity. One witness was offered immunity on the witness stand after failing to answer questions, Kohrs said at the time. The special grand jury recommended indicting more than a dozen people, she said.

Willis said last month that he plans to announce the collection decisions in mid-July.

An attorney for David Shafer, the Georgia Republican Party chairman who had put his name on a fake voter list, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Shafer’s immunity status.

The Fulton County District Attorney’s office declined a request for comment.
