In a new letter, Fulton County, Georgia DA Fani Willis flagged an August timeline for indictments from Trump’s gang who tried to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has hinted she may seek indictments in early to mid-August as part of her lengthy investigation into former President Donald Trump and his allies.
The timeline was disclosed Thursday in a letter to Fulton Superior Court Chief Justice Ural Glanville and 20 other county officials. Willis listed 10 days between July 31 and August 18 that she plans to direct a large percentage of her staff to work remotely.
“This remote work will reduce the number of employees in the Fulton County Attorney’s Office at the Fulton County Courthouse and Government Center by approximately 70 percent,” Willis noted, adding that only his management team, Armed investigators and a few other teams will be working in the building these days.
Georgia’s indictments will come the same month as the first Republican primary debate of 2024. Donald Trump has already threatened to skip the debate which will be hosted by Fox News in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The indictments have the potential to wipe the first debate of the 2024 election cycle from the headlines.
Willis’ timeline matches when two grand juries will meet in the Fulton County Courthouse as it looks like Donald Trump will slip away in the summer without more indictments.
