A former federal prosecutor and news analyst has commented on Fani Willis’ goals as ‘unrealistic’ in Donald Trump’s Georgia 2020 election subversion case.
Here are the details of the news.
Federal Prosecutor Says Fani Willis’ Goal In Trump Case Is Not Realistic
A former federal prosecutor has indicated that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who recently indicted the former President Donald Trump, ‘does not have realistic goals.’
In an interview on Tuesday, former federal prosecutor Jennifer Rodgers asserted that Willis would not get her desired result out of the indictment.
Willis brought out an indictment against Trump and his 18 other allies for their attempt to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. Jennifer Rodgers has claimed that the prosecutors have set a goal of having the trials in the case within six months, which, according to her, is ‘unrealistic.’ She talked about Willis’ goals when the host questioned her about the probable timing of the trials in the case.
The host asked, ” Back in 2022, just last year, she brought a case against a rapper and several others. What does that tell you about the timing of this case and how quickly or slowly it might be able to come to trial?”
Jennifer Rodgers answered, “Fani Willis has a lot of experience with RICO throughout her prosecutorial career, so she knows what she is doing in this regard. But returning to the Young Thug case, it is still in jury selection. I mean months and months just in jury selection.”
Comparing the jury selection process in the previous cases and Trump’s case, Rodgers added, “Picking a jury for the former President and these other high-ranking former officials and lawyers and so on is going to be even more complicated than picking a jury for the Young Thug RICO case. So to me, that just underscores again that six months is an unrealistic goal to try this thing.”
Willis began her probe just a month after the disclosure of Trump’s January 2021 phone call to Georgia’s secretary of State to help the former President with sufficient voters to make him win the 2020 election in the State. She investigated Trump’s illegal attempts to influence the election results in one of America’s important political battlegrounds.
The interview came after Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney informed reporters and the public about the filming of the indictment announcement before the grand jury brought Trump’s arraignment. McBurney said, “If a grand jury presents an indictment, that’s usually in the afternoon, and you can film and photograph that.”
The outlet said, “If the grand jury votes to indict, be it on Monday or Tuesday, the indictment will be walked over from Willis’ office to the county courthouse by a representative of the clerk’s office, the Fulton County sheriff’s office, and the grand jury. It will be presented to McBurney to sign and be made public. The names of jurors will also be made public at that time.”
According to the news outlet, McBurney also said, “The media’s cameras in the courtroom will be allowed to film the moment it is made public. But there will not be an out loud reading of the documents.”
Trump, a GOP front-runner for the 2024 Presidential nomination, stated that he would not take any plea deal, calling his fourth indictment an ‘election interference.’
The former President has said, “We don’t take plea deals because I did nothing wrong. It’s called election interference.”
