“I do not have a timetable on this matter, but I will act as quickly as possible. I will also add that this case is unprecedented in its scope and nature. Finding a special prosecutor with the resources to handle such a case will not be easy.“, he said in a statement.
In the meantime, to move forward, Skandalakis has already asked prosecutor Fani Willis for a copy of the report produced by the special grand jury in charge of the investigation into the events that occurred in Georgia after the 2020 elections.
At the moment, there is no concrete information where Burt Jones is named as part of the accusations that weigh about 19 people, but perhaps that is because they seek to investigate it individually.

About, The lieutenant governor of Georgia issued a statement mentioning that the accusation against prosecutor Fani Willis only responds to her interest in promoting her career.
“Fulton County District Attorney has spent millions of taxpayer dollars and thousands of man hours over the last two and a half years orchestrating a campaign media and public relations constant for the sole purpose of furthering his own political career“, says the letter.
In any case, no matter how the case of Donald Trump and his alleged accomplices ends, Willis’s work has already fulfilled its objective, since it is not every day that a prosecutor dares to file accusations against a nation’s president who she can even send to jail.
