Alex Holder, a British documentarian who gained access to the White House and the Trump family by filming a documentary about them, has already become instrumental in the Jan. 6 hearings in Congress. Now, he may be able to add more information to the case against Trump in Fulton County, Georgia, where Trump tried to bully officials into changing the 2020 presidential vote in his favor.

In addition to the investigation by the Jan. 6 congressional committee and the investigation of Trump’s businesses in New York, Georgia continues its criminal investigation against Trump. Now, Holder will need to cooperate with investigators in Fulton County as they continue their investigation.
According to CNN:
“Our client will comply with any lawful subpoena from the Department of Justice or any other law enforcement agency,” said Holder’s attorney Russell Smith.
Trump told Holder that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger, two officials Trump tried to pressure who recorded a phone call where Trump can be heard badgering the men to overturn the election results for him. His pressure on those officials have become of interest in the Jan. 6 hearings.
‘Of interest are Trump’s comments to Holder about Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, two Republicans who refused to intervene in the election on Trump’s behalf. Holder told CNN Saturday that Trump had referred to Kemp and Raffensperger as “stupid” for refusing to change the outcome of the election.”‘

The documentary in full will be aired for the world to see on a streaming platform. Clips have shown Ivanka Trump, who told the Jan. 6 committee that she knew the election was not stolen, that it seemed to have been stolen and her father, who she calls “honest” in a laughable moment lacking all self-awareness, needed to continue his lawsuits to overturn the results.
‘Holder’s “Unprecedented” three-part docuseries about the 2020 election will be released on Discovery Plus, which is owned by CNN’s parent company, later this summer. The documentary includes never-before-seen footage of the Trump family on the campaign trail and their reactions to the outcome of the election.’
