(TargetLiberty.org) – Prosecutors from Fulton County, Georgia would not consider offering a plea deal to Mark Meadows, Rudy Giuliani, or former President Donald Trump and would instead force them to go to trial.

While Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney appears to be willing to consider the possibility of plea deals with any of the other co-defendants, she does not appear to be interested in offering the same option to any of the three key conspirators in the case relating to the attempts to overturn the presidential election results in 2020.

Willis in her case has filed charges against 19 defendants, including the three aforementioned defendants. In the case, she is accusing them of having taken part in a wide scheme to try and keep Trump in the White House despite his loss in the presidential election against Joe Biden. At the time Meadows was serving as Trump’s chief of staff, while Giuliani had at the time been Trump’s lawyer.

The Guardian in its report noted that the decision that the three men would not be offered plea deals has not been officially communicated.

Trump’s lawyer Steve Sadow noted in a statement that it was “laughable” to even consider any possible deals considering that the only thing that Trump’s side would be willing to accept is a dismissal and a possible negotiation over the apology that the prosecutors would offer to the former President and the American people.

Giuliani’s political adviser Ted Goodman pointed out that this was “another unethical leak” and that the only reason these leaks were occurring is because the prosecutor’s office was attempting to gain publicity for their case. He added that they had no way of proving any wrongdoings in this case. He proceeded to argue that the only deal Giuliani was going to make was to tell the truth.

Goodman proceeded to call this case partisan and added that it was just an attempt to keep President Donald Trump from winning back the White House in the upcoming election.
