(ConservativeSense.com) – According to a New York Post Friday report, the Georgia prosecutor who is currently investigating alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election by Donald Trump has formally requested hearings or trials to be held at the Fulton County courthouse in August. The media outlet pointed out this is the clearest sign of when a formal decision on charges against the former US President might be announced.
In a letter to the courthouse’s chief judge, the District Attorney of Fulton County Fani Willis explained she’s planning to have 70 percent of her staff working remotely between July 31st and August 18th. According to this letter, staff workers who remained in the Fulton County courthouse during those days include every “armed” investigator and even the leadership staff.
In another letter sent to local enforcement in April, Willis pointed out she will announce charging decisions during Georgia Superior Court’s fourth term, which starts on July 11th and ends on September 1st. She explained these decisions resulted from the investigation her office has been carrying out into potential criminal meddling in the conduct of the state’s 2020 general election.
During an NBC News’ “Nightly News” interview back in February, the special grand jury foreperson Emily Kohrs said that this jury Willis tapped in 2022 to investigate election interference by the former president and some of his allies recommended the indictment of over a dozen individuals. Kohrs also said this could turn into a significant scandal since there will be unknown names but some other names “that you will recognize.”
In another interview with the New York Times, Kohrs explained that the number of people she believes will be indicted might be larger than expected. About this issue, she reiterated that some of the names that are going to appear on this list are quite known to everyone.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has previously charged the former president and Republican leader with 34 felonies for allegedly paying adult film actress Stormy Daniels hush money right before the 2016 presidential election. Many believe these legal procedures against Trump are unjustified.
