When it appeared that several of his allies, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), may face prosecution in a Georgia grand jury report issued on Friday, the former president of the United States reportedly took to social media to vent.
The former president claimed that Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, was a Justice Department employee and described her as a “out of control ‘prosecutor'”.
“The Georgia Grand Jury report has just been released. It has ZERO credibility and badly taints Fani Willis and this whole political Witch Hunt. Essentially, they wanted to indict anybody who happened to be breathing at the time. It totally undermines the credibility of the findings, and badly hurts the Great State of Georgia, whose wonderful and patriotic people are not happy with this charade of an out of control “prosecutor” doing the work of, and for, the DOJ. ELECTION INTERFERENCE” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform.
In Fulton County, Georgia, the grand jury considered possible charges against a number of people in relation to an investigation led by Willis into efforts by Trump and his allies to rig the state’s 2020 election results.
According to the report, charges had been suggested against Graham, former Georgia senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and lawyer Cleta Mitchell.
Nineteen defendants in total, including Trump, former White House top of staff Mark Meadows, former Trump attorney Rudy Giulliani, former Justice Department employee Jeffrey Clark, and former Trump attorney John Eastman, have been indicted in relation to the investigation.
The first trial for defendant Kenneth Chesebro is scheduled for October 23 after all 19 defendants have been arraigned.
