The Fulton County District Attorney, Fani Willis, is making preparations to present her case against former President Donald Trump to a grand jury. The investigation focuses on allegations of Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. Trump is currently facing three separate federal charges.
Georgia Case Targets Alleged Voter Fraud
District Attorney Willis has confirmed that her investigation is specifically focused on Georgia and the events that had an impact on the state. One potential indictment under consideration is whether Trump violated Georgia law by pressuring state officials to investigate allegations of voter fraud.
The investigation was initiated by Willis after a phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in January 2021. During the call, Trump suggested the need to find improperly cast votes in order to reverse his election loss in the state. Trump’s attempt to dismiss the investigation was unanimously rejected by the Georgia Supreme Court.
Indictment Decision Expected Soon
The grand jurors in Fulton County have already been selected, and a decision on whether to indict Trump is expected to be made soon. Limited information about Willis’ case has been disclosed, but it has been reported that a special grand jury convened last year recommended charging multiple individuals.
Trump’s Response to Previous Indictments
For his first three indictments, Trump voluntarily surrendered himself without being handcuffed or having a mugshot taken. These indictments were related to classified document handling, hush money payments, and efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
Sheriff’s Statement on Mugshot
Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat has stated that if Trump is indicted in Georgia, he will be subjected to standard procedures such as submitting fingerprints and taking a mugshot. The sheriff emphasizes that these practices apply to everyone, regardless of their status.
