Fulton County district attorney likely to present case against Trump to grand jury next week

Published

on

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is reportedly assembling witnesses to testify before a grand jury in the Atlanta area, as part of an investigation into former President Donald Trump and his associates’ efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia

This move is believed to be an attempt to construct a narrative surrounding alleged attempts to manipulate the election outcome.

Scheduled for the upcoming week, Willis is expected to present her case to the grand jury over a span of two days.

Her focus is said to be on pursuing multiple indictments, potentially centering her approach around a far-reaching racketeering case.

This strategy could portray Trump and his associates as operating within the framework of a criminal enterprise, all in their endeavour to subvert the democratic process in Georgia.

Should the district attorney proceed with racketeering charges, legal experts predict that a coherent story will be conveyed.

According to Clark D. Cunningham, a Georgia State law professor, Willis might emphasise how Trump, positioned at the helm, orchestrated a coordinated effort involving numerous individuals to achieve his objective of retaining power, using any means necessary.

The list of witnesses subpoenaed by Willis includes figures like former Republican Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, ex-Georgia Democratic state Sen. Jen Jordan, and independent journalist George Chidi.

These individuals had previously testified before a specialised grand jury tasked with investigating the Trump case. However, Georgia’s legal framework prevents these specialised grand juries from issuing indictments.

Instead, the regular grand jury, to which the witnesses have now been summoned, will determine whether to approve or dismiss indictments based on the testimony.

These witnesses are expected to shed light on various aspects of Willis’ investigation.

This includes examining presentations made by Trump’s associates, including Rudy Giuliani, to Georgia lawmakers in 2020, which allegedly contained conspiracy-laden content.

Willis is also probing incidents like the assembly of fake electors aimed at undermining President Joe Biden’s victory in the state.

She may draw on evidence collected earlier by the specialised grand jury, as well as inputs from internal investigators.

Given the significance of the case, Michael J. Moore, a former US attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, speculates that the indictment has likely been in preparation for months. Any remaining tasks, he suggests, would primarily involve final refinements and touches to the indictment.
