ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia prosecutor’s office is confirming that it has opened a criminal investigation into “attempts to influence” the outcome of last year’s general election. A spokesman for the Fulton County District Attorney’s office who confirmed the investigation Wednesday did not specifically mention former President Donald Trump. But Trump has come under intense criticism for a call he made to the state’s top elections official. Spokesman Jeff DiSantis told The Associated Press he couldn’t name the subjects of the investigation, but said “the matters reported on over the last several weeks are the matters being investigated.”
