Georgia RICO Investigation May Call Trump Before Grand Jury, Then Prison

The intrepid Fulton County District Attorney (DA) Fani Willis hates a bully, and she is going after the biggest bully of all, Donald Trump. The fearless DA said that she has “credible allegations” of very serious crimes, and some people are going to jail.

Trump bullied Ruby Freeman a Fulton County elections worker. And Willis hates bullies she said in an interview with The Washington Post:

‘I hate a bully. Obviously, I think we would find it offensive to bully an election official to influence an election.’

Former personal attorney to the ex-POTUS Rudy Giuliani has been in her crosshairs along with 16 fake electors who planned on voting for Trump:

When DA Willis spoke to Washington Post, she noted that “people are facing prison sentences:”

‘The allegations are very serious. If indicted and convicted, people are facing prison sentences.’

But will the DA put Trump on the stand? Willis said:

‘A decision is going to have to be made, and I imagine it’s going to be made late this fall.’

Her “special grand jury has “interviewed about 65 percent of the dozens of witnesses” that the DA’s office needed for the case. As the midterm elections grow close, Willis said she plans “a quiet period starting October 7:”

‘I didn’t want people to claim that this was some political stunt that we were doing to impact the election.’

Trump acolyte Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has tried to manipulate his way out of testifying before the grand jury. But DA Willis believes her team is on track s far as he and others go:

‘I’m pleased with where it is. I think we’re moving along at a really good speed. We are going to be done calling witnesses by the end of this year. Period.’

In an unusual move, she brought in a specialist in state anti-racketeering. Known as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act or RICO. Georgia has used this law in high-profile cases before. The DA was a lead prosecutor in a case using RICO to prosecute 30 Atlanta teachers and administrators in a student test cheating scandal.

Willis called the current election fraud case ”a complex conspiracy,” but Georgia law allows it:

‘The RICO statute allows you to tell jurors the full story It’s a great statute for prosecutors.’

Of course, the DA  would have preferred to leave the 2020 election events out of her investigation. However, the DA pointed to Trump’s recorded call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to “find” just enough votes to win Georgia. The ex-president told the Secretary of State who was responsible for the elections:

‘I just want to find 11,780 votes’: In [an] extraordinary hour-long call, Trump pressures Georgia secretary of state to recalculate the vote in his favor.’

But the 45th president left her no choice by allegedly interfering in her states electorate:

‘I understood that if this occurred in Fulton County, it is serious enough that it needed to be looked at.’

The DA and her team of attorneys have been pursuing three themes:

‘First, they are pursuing whether there were violations of Georgia law prohibiting false statements to government officials. Those statutes could apply to Giuliani and other Trump campaign advisers who cited evidence — later debunked — of widespread election fraud when speaking to Georgia legislative committees.’

Then, Willis will address “solicitation of election fraud:”

‘Second, Willis is examining the calls made by Trump and others to Georgia officials after the election. In court filings, Willis has cited a Georgia statute prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud.’

The DA’s team has been going after the fake electorates, too:

‘ Third, prosecutors have been pursuing the effort to send the names of would-be Trump electors from Georgia to Washington. Prosecutors are interested in whether sending official Trump electors from battleground states was part of an organized effort to give Vice President Mike Pence a reason to declare that the outcome of the election was in doubt when he presided over the congressional counting of electoral votes on Jan. 6, 2021.’

She has not decided whether she will charge Donald Trump. But that answer should arrive before long.
