(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, an Atlanta-area prosecutor, is expected to indict over a dozen Republicans in her partisan effort to punish supporters of former President Donald Trump for questioning the validity of the 2020 election, CNN reported.
Willis, who has made a career out of opposing the former president and every turn, has not announced the indictments yet, though there has been some speculation based upon her previous targets.
Her office will reportedly bring forward conspiracy and racketeering charges–most often reserved for criminal activity and not political campaigns. The nature of the charges indicate the sort of politically-charged trial that Willis is attempting to conduct.
Further, her legal team is expected to present her case before a Grand Jury next week, and will presumably announce another indictment of Trump in the coming weeks.
As Willis has moved forward with her attempt to criminalize support for Trump, the former president has taken shots at the prosecutor for her shady past.
His campaign team released an ad that insinuated that Willis had a romantic affair with a gang member. Trump himself commented on the alleged affair earlier this week.
“I guess they say that she was after a certain gang and she ended up having an affair with the head of the gang or a gang member,” Trump said Tuesday. “And this is a person that wants to indict me.”
According to Willis, however, this accusation is “derogatory and false.”
She also prohibited her legal staff from responding to any allegations.
“You may not comment in any way on the ad or any of the negativity that may be expressed against me, your colleagues, this office in the coming days, weeks or months,” Willis wrote in a Wednesday email.
