According to an ex parte filing in the Fulton County District Superior Court on May 5, eight out of 16 fake electors who committed to vote on behalf of former President Donald Trump took immunity deals and sat for interviews as a part of the ongoing investigation into alleged election interference by Trump and his allies in the 2020 presidential election. The filing states that seven of the eight electors sat for interviews in April 2023 as a part of the immunity agreement.

The existence of the immunity deals was revealed as a part of a motion opposing District Attorney Fani Willis’s motion to disqualify counsel for the eight elector nominees.
