- For more than two years now, Fani Willis has been investigating the actions former President Donald Trump and others took in the wake of the 2020 election.
- Trump's Georgia legal team in March asked the court to toss out the report of a special grand jury that had been seated in the case and to prevent prosecutors from using any evidence or testimony stemming from the panel's investigation.
- The Trump administration invoked Title 42 in spring 2020 as COVID-19 cases were spreading.
- That meant that border agents could quickly process and expel migrants.
- The policy expired last week.
- The Army's training hub in Georgia was renamed Fort Moore during a ceremony last week.
- The change replaces the name of a Confederate officer that had adorned the base for more than a century with that of a decorated Vietnam War commander and his wife.
