Karma Catches Up With Crooked Georgia DA Fani Willis

Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, has formally requested that the trial involving former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants commence on October 23.

In a file made on Thursday, Willis made a formal request for the commencement of a trial involving all 19 defendants on October 23, 2023. The request was made in a respectful manner.

Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, together with his former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and his former attorneys, including Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Kenneth Chesebro, Jeff Clark, and John Eastman, among others, have been indicted as part of the ongoing investigation conducted by Fulton County.

“The charges include violating the Georgia RICO Act—the Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations Act; Solicitation of Violation of Oath by a Public Officer; Conspiracy to Commit Impersonating a Public Officer; Conspiracy to Commit Forgery in the First Degree; Conspiracy to Commit False Statements and Writings; Conspiracy to Commit Filing False Documents; Conspiracy to Commit Forgery in the First Degree; Filing False Documents; and Solicitation of Violation of Oath by a Public Officer. Not everyone faces the same charges,” Fox News reported.

“The former president, specifically, was charged with 13 counts: One count of violation of the Georgia RICO Act, three counts of criminal solicitation, six counts of criminal conspiracy, one count of filing false documents, and two counts of making false statements,” the outlet added.

The House Judiciary Committee of the United States is now conducting an investigation of the actions of Fulton County, Georgia’s District Attorney, Fani Willis, with regards to her underlying reasons for pursuing legal proceedings against the former President of the United States, Donald Trump.

The inquiry was officially declared on Thursday by Chairman Jim Jordan of the Committee, who corresponded with Willis asserting that her “indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding [her] actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated.”

According to a report by Fox News, Jordan made reference to Willis’ previous fundraising endeavors as she presented her argument against the former president in the letter.

“It is noteworthy that just four days before this indictment, you launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted your investigation into President Trump,” Jordan wrote. “Additionally, the forewoman of the special grand jury you convened to investigate President Trump earlier this year bragged during an unusual media tour about her excitement at the prospect of subpoenaing President Trump and getting to swear him in.”

Former President Donald Trump has been indicted on 13 counts in relation to the state inquiry into his purported efforts to manipulate the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in that jurisdiction. He is scheduled to present himself at the Fulton County jail in Atlanta on Thursday.

The court has established a bond amount of $200,000 for Trump, and it is expected that he will undergo processing and subsequent expeditious release. According to a report by Fox News Digital, the defendant is expected to enter a plea of not guilty during his upcoming official arraignment, scheduled to take place in the early part of the following month.

It is expected that Trump would be compelled to undergo the process of having his photograph taken for official record-keeping purposes, commonly known as a mugshot. The investigation conducted by Willis involved additional defendants, such as former attorneys of Trump, namely Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, and others, who were photographed during their processing.

House Republicans are utilizing press reports that allege Willis employed similar witnesses and resources as Department of Justice Special Counsel Jack Smith in order to justify their choice to supervise Georgia state indictments.

“News outlets have reported that your office and Mr. Smith ‘interviewed many of the same witnesses and reviewed much of the same evidence’ in reaching your decision to indict President Trump,” the committee letter reads. “The House Committee on the Judiciary thus may investigate whether federal law enforcement agencies or officials were involved in your investigation or indictment.”

The committee has made a formal request to the district attorney’s office to furnish all documentation pertaining to its utilization of federal monies, communication with the Department of Justice (DOJ) or any of its subdivisions, and any records documenting cooperation with individuals from the executive branch.

The materials required by the district attorney’s office must be delivered no later than September 7th, 10:00 a.m.

The Trump campaign expressed criticism against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and other prosecutors due to their indictment about claims of his purported efforts to undermine the validity of the state’s 2020 election outcomes.

Trump and his supporters have levied allegations against Willis and other individuals, asserting their involvement in “election interference” with the intention of undermining his prospective 2024 presidential candidacy.

“These activities by Democrat leaders constitute a grave threat to American democracy and are direct attempts to deprive the American people of their rightful choice to cast their vote for President,” the campaign statement said. “Call it election interference or election manipulation—it is a dangerous effort by the ruling class to suppress the choice of the people. It is un-American and wrong.”
