Trump Put on Notice of Indictment - AP

First - If Not Only - Criminal Charges Against Trump Likely in Georgia
WASHINGTON - Jan. 30, 2023 - PRLog -- The Associated Press has just reported that "Former President Donald Trump and his allies have been put on notice by . . . a Georgia prosecutor who indicated she was likely to seek criminal charges soon in a two-year election subversion probe."

While noting that [Fani] "Willis, a Democrat, didn't mention Trump by name," nevertheless "her comments marked the first time a prosecutor in any of several current investigations tied to the Republican former president has hinted that charges could be forthcoming."

Also according to the AP's newest report, Clark Cunningham, a Georgia State University law professor, predicted "I expect to see indictments in Fulton County before I see any federal indictments."

Law professor John Banzhaf, whose formal legal complaint filed with Willis initially triggered the criminal investigation of Trump and his allies, and led to the rare appointment of a special grand jury which just issued a still-sealed report, also suggests that the first - if not the only - criminal charges against the former president will be filed by a county prosecutor rather than by the Department of Justice [DoJ].

An ever growing number of experts have also concluded that Trump's gravest legal threat comes not from the newly appointed special counsel Jack Smith, but rather from the DA of Fulton County, Georgia; in part because Attorney General Merrick Garland may nix one or more proposed federal prosecutions for legal and political reasons, as well as the troubling "optics," says Banzhaf.

So with many persons very close to and closely involved with Trump having been subpoenaed, everyone who feels that Trump must be prosecuted should keep a very sharp eye on DA Fani Willis in Georgia, counsels the law professor.
