A Georgia prosecutor is ready to charge former president Donald Trump with racketeering and conspiracy charges in his attempt to overturn the 2020 election in the state. The investigation has gathered a significant amount of evidence, including “recordings of phone calls, emails, text messages, documents, and testimony before a special grand jury.” The inquiry is believed to show that the push to help Trump came from Trump himself or his PAC. The special grand jury, which met for seven months in Atlanta and heard from 75 witnesses is recommending charging Trump with multiple indictments.
According to CNN:
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis could make decisions on charges this spring, the source said. Willis will bring her charging recommendations to the regularly seated grand juries, who each serve two-month terms. Two regular Fulton County grand juries were seated in early March, and the next batch of two are scheduled to be sworn-in early May.
Investigators have at least three recordings of Trump pressuring Georgia officials, including a phone call that he made to the Georgia House speaker to push for a special session to overturn Democrat Joe Biden’s 2020 victory in the state.
There is also a recording of Trump’s call to a top investigator with the Georgia Secretary of State’s office in December 2020, while they were looking into quashed allegations of irregularities with signature-matching in Cobb County in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Willis kicked off her investigation in early 2021, soon after the infamous January phone call became public in which Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” the votes necessary for Trump to win Georgia’s electoral votes.
The Fulton County probe expanded beyond the Trump phone calls to include false claims of election fraud to state lawmakers, the fake elector scheme, efforts by unauthorized individuals to access voting machines in one Georgia county and threats and harassment against election workers.
These charges would be independent of the charges Trump assumes will cause the left the indict him Tuesday. We will see how far the witch hunt goes. Will the leftist loons attempt to charge him not one but two times in attempts to get one charge to stick or have backup charges? We will see as we move forward.
