Kemp was scheduled to present testimony on Monday to prosecutors to reveal what he knows about the former president’s pressure campaign to try to wrangle a change in Georgia votes after his loss, both Bloomberg and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Kemp, a longtime Trump ally, infuriated the former president, who said the governor refused to alter the results of the fair election and make Trump the winner in Georgia, even though he had lost the state to Democrat Joe Biden.
Trump notoriously told Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in a recorded phone call after the election to “find” just enough votes to make him the winner. Trump has repeatedly characterized that phone call on Truth Social as “perfect.” Raffensperger has already testified before the grand jury.
“It looks like Fani Willis is closing in on an indictment for Trump,” Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe told Bloomberg.
Tribe said Willis has a clearer case to prove than does the U.S. Justice Department, which is looking at issues such as obstructing a congressional inquiry, defrauding the government and inciting an insurrection.
