According to a recent study commissioned by a local media outlet, a majority of respondents in Georgia expressed their opposition to the idea of former President Donald Trump accepting a plea deal offered by District Attorney Fani Willis.
According to a study conducted exclusively by 11Alive in Atlanta, the majority of respondents, accounting for 55 percent, expressed a preference for President Trump to undergo a trial. Meanwhile, 21 percent of participants indicated that he should consider accepting a deal, while 24 percent either remained uncertain or refrained from expressing an opinion.
According to an unidentified individual, referred to as Eros, who leans towards the Republican party and resides in Cobb County, “I would rather him do a plea agreement.”
“He wants to prove everyone wrong and become president again. So I don’t think his pride would allow him to plead guilty,” asserted Beth Carter, a voter in Midtown who tends to support the Democratic party.
Richard Holloway, a member of the Republican Party hailing from Lithia Springs, expressed his support for a trial concerning Donald Trump, as he holds the belief that such a trial would result in his exoneration.
“I’m for Trump. Go, Trump. ‘Know what I mean?’ Good luck,” Holloway said, expressing his skepticism over the likelihood of successfully convicting him.
According to Leelt Ermias from Atlanta, the outcome would be contingent upon the specific circumstances surrounding the plea. “It would depend on the details of the plea,” Ermias said, adding that she does not support Trump.
Prosecutors are vested with the power to engage in plea bargaining, wherein they have the ability to offer plea agreements that go beyond the customary terms of probation or sentencing requirements. According to 11Alive, the agreements may encompass the defendant’s consent to participate in counseling or their exclusion from a specific jurisdiction.
According to Clint Rucker, a former Fulton County prosecutor who currently practices law privately, “Imposing a requirement that the person never run for public office again could be a condition that could be part of a negotiated plea.”
However, Rucker further expressed skepticism over the likelihood of Trump accepting a plea deal, emphasizing that he would “not bet one penny” on this kind of result. This sentiment was echoed by several voters interviewed by the media outlet, as they believed that such a plea deal would effectively eliminate Trump’s chances of participating in the 2024 race.
In recent weeks, President Trump expressed opposition to the possibility of entering into a plea agreement in relation to any of the four ongoing legal proceedings against him.
In a short press conference held prior to his departure from the Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club on route to Iowa, President Trump provided a response to a reporter’s inquiry regarding his willingness to accept a deal.
A reporter asked him, “Is there any chance you take a plea deal in Georgia?”
President Trump answered:
We did nothing wrong. We don’t ever take a plea deal. We don’t take plea deals. It’s a wise guy question. You’re just a wise guy. We don’t take plea deals because I did nothing wrong. It’s called election interference. You know what that is?
Because these indictments are going out by Biden. Who can’t even put two sentences together. This is Joe Biden. Because he can’t win the election by himself. He can’t win the election based on votes. So what they did is they got the attorney general to do it. And then you see how stupid they acted yesterday with the appointment of the special counsel. They call it special counsel. And what a crazy thing that was. And it’s being laughed at all over the world.
The fact is that we have a country that’s in serious trouble. We have a country that’s in major decline. I don’t mean decline, I mean major decline. And we’re going to straighten it out. This group and a lot of people just like this group. We’re going to straighten it out and we’re going to make America great again.
An attorney representative for Trump expressed a lack of concern with the increasing quantity of indictments against him, despite the fact that a majority of these indictments have been filed in jurisdictions that exhibit a strong Democratic leaning.
Collectively, the accusations brought up by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, and special counsel Jack Smith in two distinct instances, cumulatively result in a significant number of years of imprisonment. However, Alina Habba expressed to Shannon Bream, the anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” that the ex-president maintains a positive outlook.
“If it was a normal person, honestly, Shannon, I could understand the concern. President Trump is not your average person. He’s incredibly intelligent, and he knows the ropes. He also knows the facts because he lived them,” Habba proclaimed.
