Fulton DA Fani Willis Secures Sham RICO Indictment of Trump, 18 Others

'This is disgraceful, it is wrong, and it is an abuse of power by angry democrats who have decided the rule of law doesn’t matter to them anymore... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) In the wake of a scandalous leak of the proceedings of a Fulton County grand jury, it was confirmed late Monday night that District Attorney Fani Willis had secured an indictment against former President Donald Trump and 18 of his allies on 10 counts of allegedly attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, which then potted-plant, basement-bound candidate Joe Biden had allegedly won.

Other defendants named in the indictment included former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman and Sidney Powell, according to the Associated Press.

The defendants would be given until noon Aug. 25 to surrender and prosecutors plan to request a trial date within six month, said Willis, who launched her political career with a vow to indict Trump and has been fundraising for years off her witch hunt.

“I’m pissed,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said as the fourth indictment of Trump loomed.

“Our country is over 200 years old. We have never once indicted a former president or a leading candidate for president. And this is Joe Biden and this is the Democrats weaponizing the justice system because they’re afraid of the voters,” Cruz told Fox News.

“This is disgraceful, it is wrong, and it is an abuse of power by angry democrats who have decided the rule of law doesn’t matter to them anymore.”

Comparing Willis to “Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, Deranged Jack Smith, and New York AG Letitia James,” the Trump campaign charged that the Fulton County DA was “Ripping a page from Crooked Joe Biden’s playbook, Willis has strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign.”

The message continued its own blistering indictment of Willis, writing that “Combined with the intentionally slow-walked investigations by the Biden-Smith goon squads and the false charges in New York, the timing of this latest coordinated strike by a biased prosecutor in an overwhelmingly Democrat jurisdiction not only betrays the trust of the American people, but also exposes true motivation driving their fabricated accusations,” the campaign’s statement admonished.

“They could have brought this two and half years ago, yet they chose to do this for election interference reasons in the middle of President Trump’s successful campaign.”

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said the latest indictment presented a weak case and again exposed the politically-motivated intent behind the Trump indictments.

“First of all, nobody should take seriously that there was grand jury indictment. The fact that it was a grand jury indictment, it means nothing. It’s the prosecutor who indicted,” Dershowitz told Fox News, pointing out that the indictment leak was posted “before the grand jury even voted.”

Dershowitz shredded all four of the Trump indictments as incredibly weak cases that would likely be overturned on appeal. Regarding the Fulton County charges, Dershowitz said that “if you bring a RICO case, that increases your chances of winning a trial and losing on appeal,” which would unfold after the 2024 tilt.

The indictments were all “designed to get quick convictions in jurisdictions that are heavily loaded against Donald Trump,” he said. “And if you’re going after the man running for president against your person, you have to have the strongest case. Otherwise, it becomes a banana republic,” he added.

“I’m not a Republican, I’m not a Trump supporter, but I care deeply about the Constitution,” he said. “I care deeply about preserving the rule of law. And we’re seeing it being frittered away for partisan political purposes.”
