New Evidence May Finally Trigger A Trump Indictment
Georgia DA Fani Willis Has Recording of Third Threatening Phone Call
This new recorded telephone call, from Trump to now-deceased Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, asked the Republican to illegally convene a special session of the Legislature to overturn Joe Biden's victory.
It was played for the special grand jury investigating Trump and his allies, and makes the evidence that Trump violated the laws of Georgia even more overwhelming, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, whose formal legal complaint that Trump violated criminal laws in the state triggered Willis' investigation, and subsequently the calling of the special grand jury.
This new evidence further strengthens Willis' already very strong legal hand, and may help pressure her to promptly issue an unprecedented indictment of a former president, especially if she wants to beat the Manhattan District Attorney to be first.
Several experts are suggesting that a Bragg indictment of Trump could come down as early as next week, although it might not then be made public for several more days.
As the New York Times further explained: "What's more, Georgia criminal law is some of the most favorable in the country for getting at Mr. Trump's alleged misconduct."
For example, there is a Georgia law on the books expressly forbidding just what Mr. Trump apparently did in Ms. Willis' jurisdiction:
Prof Banzhaf and other legal experts have suggested that there is strong evidence that Trump and his allies also violated several additional Georgia criminal statutes.
It also seems clear the Willis is planning to bring charges under Georgia's RICO [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations]
There are many other indications that Willis may soon indict Trump, suggests Banzhaf, whose criminal complaint triggered her investigation, and who also played a role in obtaining special prosecutors for former president Richard Nixon, and for finally bringing former Vice President Spiro Agnew to justice.
