Donald Trump seems quite panicked about this criminal investigation in Georgia!

donald trump has a long and robust history of getting away with all the sleazy, underhanded, wildly unethical, and probably criminal things he’s ever done in his life. Whether it be stiffening contractors he owes money to, pay a porn star to keep quiet about their alleged affair, or inciting a violent riot in a botched attempt to overturn the results of an election he lost, the payoff that would befall other people never seems to come for the ex -President. But according to a former federal prosecutor, the guy’s luck could turn thanks to the state of Georgia.

During the weekend, Joyce Vance, a former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, Told MSNBC as Fulton County Attorney Fani Willis, which assembled a special grand jury earlier this year, has extremely damning evidence on its hands regarding Trump’s attempt to steal Georgia’s vote in 2020. In order to indict the former president, Vance said Katie Phang, Willis needs ‘proof of the former president’s state of mind’ and, according to the ex-attorney, Willis may have it from the recording of the phone call that took place on January 2, 2021, before the official certification of the vote, in which Trump ordered the Secretary of State of Georgia Brad Raffensperger to “find” him the exact number of votes needed to win the state, despite the fact that he had in fact lost. “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state,” Trump told Raffensperger, before threatening to sue the local official for not following through. That the then-president wasn’t “requesting an investigation into potential voter fraud, not a look to see if anything was wrong, but he’s asking” Raffensperger to “find out for him the precise number of votes he has need,” Vance told Phang. is “pretty good evidence of criminal intent going into it”.

Like HuffPost Remarks, while Willis’s investigation was initially launched in response to this very damning call, “the investigation has now been expanded to include possible racketeering and fraud related to a number of Republican efforts to overthrow the election”. Raffensperger, who won his primary last week, is due to testify before the grand jury on Thursday.

A Brookings Institution analysis released last year — which the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office investigated — concluded that Trump’s actions in Georgia put him at “substantial risk of possible well-founded state charges.” on multiple crimes,” including “criminal solicitation to commit election fraud; intentional interference in the exercise of electoral functions; conspiracy to commit electoral fraud; criminal solicitation; and report RICO violations. In a interview with The New York Times, Willis said, “Anything related to attempted interference in the Georgia election will be subject to scrutiny…An investigation is like an onion. We never know. You take something out, then you find something else.

Is Trump really in legal danger? If his story is anything to go by, it’s hard to say yes, overwhelming evidence doesn’t stand up. But he certainly seems upset with Willis’ work, having bleated on Truth Social over the weekend: “The young and ambitious radical left-wing Democratic ‘prosecutor’ from Georgia, who presides over one of the most criminal and corrupt places in United States, Fulton County, appointed a grand jury to investigate an absolutely “PERFECT” phone call to the Secretary of State. Many lawyers, on both sides, were knowingly on the call. I also assumed it was taped. I called to fight a rigged and stolen election, and they’re going after me instead of the people who rigged and stole it. God bless America!”

At a rally in Texas in January, Trump also attacked Willis, along with two other black prosecutors without mentioning the name of any of the investigators, telling his supporters Fulton County Attorney General, New York Attorney General . Letitia James, and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg are “vicious and horrible people” and claim “that they are racist and that they are very sick, that they are mentally ill”. Then he encouraged his supporters to launch ‘the biggest protest we’ve ever had in Washington, D.C., in New York, in Atlanta and elsewhere’, if ‘these vicious radical racist prosecutors are doing anything wrong or illegal’ , a requirement former prosecutors believe. could “turn against him legally” given that it looks very much like an attempt to obstruct justice.
