Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is taking significant steps in her investigation into former President Donald Trump. As per a CNN report, she has summoned multiple witnesses to appear before a grand jury next week. These witnesses include former Georgia Lt. Gov Geoff Duncan, independent journalist George Chidi, and former Georgia state Sen. Jen Jordan.
Duncan has expressed his willingness to cooperate with the inquiry and plans to appear before the grand jury. Chidi has also confirmed his involvement and shared the news on social media. Both individuals are prepared to provide testimony in the investigation.
Willis’s decision to call witnesses indicates her intention to pursue potential charges against Trump and his associates. She is reportedly considering bringing racketeering charges against Trump under the state’s RICO statute, similar to how she charged Atlanta rapper Young Thug.
As Willis’s investigation gains momentum, Trump has been criticizing her and questioning her motives. He has expressed his concerns about potential indictment through public addresses and his newly established social media platform, Truth Social. Trump’s campaign has even released a TV ad in Atlanta that scrutinizes Willis and accuses her of previous misconduct.
If Willis decides to press charges against Trump, it would be his fourth indictment in just five months. Trump is currently facing federal charges related to his alleged efforts to challenge the 2020 election results and mishandling of White House documents, brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has also filed over 30 counts of falsifying business records against Trump.
