Eight of the so-called "fake electors" in Georgia who were allegedly involved in efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the state have accepted immunity in the Fulton County probe into the matter, according to their lawyer.

"After reviewing the actual, written offers of immunity, each of those eight electors accepted their immunity offer," the filing by the attorney, Kimberly Debrow, said.

Seven of the electors, according to the filing, have sat for interviews with the district attorney's office.

All 16 "fake electors" in the state had previously been informed they were considered targets of the probe.

Former President and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump attends a campaign event in Manchester, N.H., April 27, 2023.

The new filing on Friday came after Willis earlier last month asked the judge to disqualify Debrow from simultaneously representing the electors.

Debrow and the investigator, according to the filing, got into a "heated exchange" during which the investigator threatened to "tear up" the deal and indict the elector. »
