Virginia judge: Gingrich must testify to Fulton special grand jury

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story said the judge refused to issue a stay on the order so that Gingrich could appeal. The judge said he wouldn’t issue a stay on the spot but directed Gingrich’s legal team to file the paperwork seeking one as they appeal.

FAIRFAX, VA. — A judge in Virginia has rejected an effort by former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich to avoid testifying before a special grand jury in Georgia investigating the effort by former President Donald Trump to reverse his 2020 election loss.

In a hearing Wednesday morning in Fairfax County, Virginia, lawyers for Gingrich argued an appearance in Fulton County would be “unduly burdensome,” and asked the judge not to make the former Georgia congressman travel to Atlanta to answer questions.

“Speaker Gingrich’s testimony before the Georgia Special Purpose Grand Jury is simply not necessary,” attorney John A. Burlingame told the court. ... Burlingame said the better option was to have the Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol send the grand jury a copy of Gingrich’s testimony about the same subject matter.

“It’s not necessary for Speaker Gingrich to have to travel to Georgia to address the exact same topics before a different body,” Burlingame said. Gingrich has a Nov. 21 deposition scheduled on Capitol Hill.

9. How many of these orders have been totally blocked?

From memory - I think nearly all of the subpoenas have been allowed by multiple judges in multiple jurisdictions. Not a good precedent for those dealing with the Fulton DA.

26. Funny add Gingrich to the list of people who are scared shitless about having to testify ...

.... under oath in front of the Grand Jury that D.A. Willis has put together to find out the
truth about those who wanted to illegally change the outcome of OUR PRESIDENTIAL
ELECTION by stopping the proper counting of the vote of blacks in Georgia.

The list also includes:

* TFG
* Rudy
* Lindsey Graham

27. Consdering that each state runs its own elections

You'd think that the GOPers (aka the "states' rights" crowd) would know better than to meddle where they don't belong.

I'm not at all surprised that Graham and Gingrich are being required to testify. It's almost like a "play stupid games, win stupid prizes" moment.

Hmmmm.... wasn't there someone else that tried to get involved in the GA election???
