Trump's Georgia Allies Now Facing Indictments
Former President Could Be Next, Says Fulton Country DA Fani Willis
Fani Willis is also is also "weighing whether to subpoena Mr. Trump himself and seek his testimony before a grand jury," reports the New York Times, which concluded that "the investigation could prove to be one of the most perilous legal problems facing the former president and his allies," notes Banzhaf.
This makes it even more likely that the Georgia criminal probe is likely to be the first to result in an indictment of the former president, says the law professor.
Banzhaf notes that Willis has already officially reported that evidence gathered earlier, including that filed with her office by the law professor, indicated "a reasonable probability that the State of Georgia's administration of elections in 2020, including the State's election of the President of the United States, was subject to possible criminal disruptions."
So moving on to Giuliani, Graham, and others very close to Trump strongly suggests that the investigation is about to come to an end, possible with an indictment of Trump, predicts Banzhaf.
Banzhaf's complaint to Willis also charged Trump with violating two additional criminal statutes: GA Code § 21-2-603 - Conspiracy to Commit Election Fraud, and also GA Code § 21-2-597 - Intentional Interference With Performance of Election Duties.
The law professor suggests that the investigation by Willis is more likely to return an indictment against Trump than the other major investigation by the Department of Justice which is investigating whether it can and should indict him for his role in allegedly inciting a riot on January 6th. Here are four reasons why.
So, with Manhattan now out of the running, and persons very close to and closely involved with Trump finally being subpoenaed, everyone who feels that Trump must be prosecuted should keep a very sharp eye on Fani Willis in Georgia, counsels the law professor.
