Georgia prosecutors who are investigating former President Trump’s attempts to stay in power have evidence connecting his legal team to a voting systems breach in Coffee County in early January 2021, CNN reports. 

The news comes as Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis prepares to present the case before a grand jury this week. More than a dozen people are expected to be charged in the investigation. 

Text messages and emails from Trump’s legal team show the breach was a “top-down push” to access voting software. According to text messages, a local elections official involved in the voting machine breach sent a “written invitation” to Trump’s attorneys less than a week ahead of the breach. The letter, which was reportedly written by former Coffee County elections official Misty Hampton, invited a group of Trump allies to help with the operation. 

Prosecutors have questioned her, Rudy Giuliani, and Sydney Powell, an attorney who pushed debunked conspiracy theories about the election. 

Sullivan Strickler, a law firm hired by Trump’s attorneys to examine voting systems, has also been implicated, according to the report. 

Other text messages revealed efforts to gain access to the voting equipment in Trump-friendly Coffee County. 

Giuliani’s attorney Robert Costello said his client did nothing wrong. 

“Rudy Giuliani had nothing to do with this,” Costello said. “You can’t attach Rudy Giuliani to Sidney Powell’s crackpot idea.”

Coffee was the only county in Georgia to fail to certify the election results.
