Investigators in Georgia want to talk to a leader of the group "Black Voices for Trump" in front of a special grand jury.
Investigators looking into attempts to change the results of the 2020 election in Georgia want to talk to Harrison Floyd, a leader of the group Black Voices for Trump, about his alleged role in a plot to get a Georgia election worker to say there was fraud in the election.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said that Floyd, who lives in Maryland, is a "necessary and material witness" for the investigation and asked him to testify before the special purpose grand jury on September 28.
Willis said in a new court filing that Floyd set up a meeting between election worker Ruby Freeman from Fulton County and Trevian Kutti, who used to work as a publicist for R. Kelly and Kanye West.
According to court documents and public records from the Cobb County Police Department, Kutti, who lived in Chicago, went to Freeman's home in Georgia in January 2021 and spoke with an election worker at a local police station while being watched by officers.
"The witness knows more than anyone else about the content of Kutti's conversations with Ruby Freeman, the reasons why he decided to put Kutti in touch with Freeman, how the meeting between Kutti and Freeman was set up, and any communications between himself and others involved in planning and carrying out the meeting, the Trump campaign, and other known and unknown people involved in the multi-state, coordinated efforts to influence the election."
The Cobb County police report from January 2021 says, "Ms. Kutti said that Ms. Freeman was in danger and that she had 48 hours to talk to her to get ahead of the problem." The police report said that Kutti said Freeman was in danger because of the election.
Kutti said the same things at the meeting at the police station.
Kutti told Freeman, "I can't say for sure what will happen," according to the body camera footage that CNN got by asking for public records. "All I know is that it will get in the way of your freedom."
"You are a loose end for a party that needs to clean up," Kutti said.
Freeman was one of the election workers Trump and his campaign went after when they made false claims that she was counting fake mail-in ballots in Fulton County. She testified before the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021 earlier this year.
