After an eight month investigation, the Fulton County Special Purpose Grand Jury investigating former President Trump's and allies' attempts to overturn election results in Georgia has issued its final report and been dissolved.

On Jan. 24 at 12 pm ET, Judge Robert McBurney will hear argument on whether the special grand jury's final report should be made public.
