Fani Willis publicizes costs towards Trump’s crew in Georgia in August
In a new letter, Fulton County, Georgia prosecutor Fani Willis announced an August timeline for indictments against Trump’s gang that tried to overturn the 2020 Georgia election results.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported:
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis hinted that she could file charges in early to mid-August as part of her long-running investigation into former President Donald Trump and his allies.
The schedule was announced in a letter Thursday to Fulton Superior Court chief justice Ural Glanville and 20 other county officials. Willis listed ten days between July 31 and August 18 when she plans to direct a large percentage of her employees to work remotely.
“This remote work will reduce the number of Fulton County District Attorney’s office staff at the Fulton County Courthouse and Government Center by approximately 70%,” Willis noted, adding that only her leadership team, armed investigators and a few other teams will be working in the building at that time.
The indictment of Georgia will come the same month as the first Republican primary debate in 2024. Donald Trump has already threatened to cancel the debate, which Fox News will host in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The indictments have the potential to push the first debate of the 2024 election cycle out of the headlines.
Willis’ schedule coincides with a pair of grand juries sitting at the Fulton County Courthouse as it looks like Donald Trump will make it through the summer with no further charges.
