Trump Ga. grand jury
In early January 2022, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s office asked a Georgia court to convene a special grand jury “for the purpose of investigating the facts and circumstances relating directly or indirectly to possible attempts to disrupt the lawful administration of the 2020 elections in the State of Georgia.” The Georgia indictment includes 41 different criminal charges against Trump and his co-conspirators — ranging from perjury to forgery to “solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer” — although Trump is only personally implicated in 13 of these charges. Notably, the indictment also charges Trump with violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, a statute that is often used to charge members of the mafia and other criminal enterprises.

Blue Laws for Red Citizens

One state prosecutor and one civilian plaintiff have already won huge fines and damages from former President Donald Trump that may, with legal costs, exceed $500 million. Trump awaits further civil and criminal liability in three other federal, state, and local indictments. There are eerie commonalities in all these five court cases involving plaintiff E. Jean Carroll, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, New York Attorney General Letitia James, federal special counsel Jack Smith, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. One, the prosecutors are either unapologetically left wing or associated with liberal causes. They filed their legal writs in big-city, left-wing America—Atlanta, New York, Washington—where liberal judges and jury pools predominate in a manner not characteristic of the country at large. Two, the cases are overtly political. Bragg, James, and Willis have either campaigned for office or raised campaign funds by promising to get or even destroy Trump. Carroll’s suit was funded by left-wing billionaire Reid Hoffman. Smith sued to rush his court schedule in hopes of putting Trump on trial before the November election. Three, there would not be any of these cases had Trump not run for the presidency or not been a conservative. Four, in all these cases, the charges could have been equally applicable to fellow left-wing public figures and officials. President Joe Biden, like Trump, was accused of sexual assault decades earlier—by former staffer Tara Reade. Yet Reade was torn apart by the media and the Left for inconsistencies in her memory. By contrast, the wildly inconsistent and amnesiac Carroll won $83 million from Trump. More From Daily Signal:
