BOOM! Karma Just Caught Up With Georgia DA Fani Willis

In a late-night court filing last week, a pro-Trump attorney and former federal prosecutor seriously accused Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis of “prosecutorial misconduct.”

In a 21-page document, Sidney Powell, one of the few lawyers defending then-President Donald Trump who maintained that his victory in 2020 was rigged, contended that Willis’s “indictment represents troubling and unethical conduct by the prosecutors.”

According to The Messenger, the filing, which has over 200 pages of exhibits, also claimed that Willis’ office neglected to provide potentially exonerating material.

The Messenger reported: “Powell is charged with seven state felonies in the broad election-racketeering case that claims there was a plot to rig Georgia’s 2020 presidential election results.” She entered a not guilty plea.

Powell’s attorney, Brian Rafferty, indicated in the Thursday filing that all charges should be dropped and that the indictment “represents troubling and unethical conduct by the prosecutors.” Rafferty additionally stated that Powell was not connected in any kind to the events that occurred in Coffee County, Georgia, and asserted that prosecutors “failed to conduct an independent investigation” into allegations that voting systems were fraudulently hacked there, which are crucial to the indictment.

The Messenger provides additional information:

Along with Trump election lawyer Kenneth Chesebro, Powell is scheduled to go to trial starting Oct. 23 after the two requested expedited proceedings under Georgia’s Speedy Trial Act. A trial date for the other 17 defendants has not yet been scheduled.

Wednesday was the deadline for Powell and Chesebro to file pre-trial motions other than those dealing with the exclusion of testimony. In a separate filing Wednesday, Powell argued the indictment “fails in every regard” to specify the details of her alleged crime.

At a conference set for Friday morning in Atlanta, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee was anticipated to review pre-trial motions, the outlet added.

A renowned legal expert and a former prosecutor have both said that the indictment of the former president Trump in Georgia was needless and supported the Democratic Party’s allegations of a “pile on.”

Elie Honig was answering to the accusations made against Trump by Willis, as Newsweek revealed last week.

Willis indicted Trump and eighteen other people in August on a total of forty-one felonies, according to a 98-page document. For racketeering, each of the accused received the maximum penalty of 20 years. Trump entered a not guilty plea after having his mugshot taken in a jail in Atlanta towards the end of August.

Honig contended that Trump is already facing criminal charges for allegedly conspiring to rig seven states—including Georgia—into electing him president in 2020.

Honig stated that the Georgia allegations are “unnecessary and if anything, lend fuel to Trump’s claims…that this is just a Democratic Party pile on” during an appearance on the legal podcast “Cafe.”

According to Honig, the Department of Justice’s Special Counsel Jack Smith has already accused Trump of attempting to “steal the election nationwide and in seven states in particular, including Georgia.”

“So why is [the Atlanta indictment] in the greater good and why is it promoting public confidence in the fairness of this [process] to have one of those seven state prosecutors pile on with a charge of her own? I don’t think it serves any greater good,” he said.

The individual asserted that the indictment was politically biased, attributed to Willis:

“I disagree with the exercise of prosecutorial discretion by an elected county prosecutor, a partisan, with a D [for Democrat] next to her name. I think it makes Trump’s chances of being convicted and punished higher if that’s the only goal here. If that’s the only goal, all seven states: Michigan, New Mexico, and on down the line, should be charging him too but that would be ludicrous,” Honig said.
