(TargetLiberty.org) – Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) has requested from Georgia county judges to not schedule any trials and in-person hearings for the first half of August. This is considered a sign that she might be preparing to file charges against former President Donald Trump during that time.
Willis has also indicated that approximately 70 percent of her staff were going to be working remotely on different days in August. This information was disclosed in a letter sent to local judges, law enforcement officials, and elected officials on Thursday.
Specifically, she requested that no trials and in-person hearings be scheduled from August 7 to August 14. She proceeded to state that if any in-person hearings are scheduled for that time, then her office would be “working partially remote” and that the proceedings would be handled by senior leadership. She added that the week of July 31, there would only be a few in-person proceedings as most judges were going to be attending the state’s annual judicial conference.
Willis did not provide a specific reason for the request but in the letter did encourage those who received the letter to help keep the county’s judicial complex “safe during this time.” Many have considered this latest letter a possible indication of when Willis is planning to announce indictment following the lengthy probe into whether Trump and his allies violated any laws during their attempts to overturn the state’s 2020 presidential election results. At the time Trump had urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to “find 11,780 votes,” during a phone call. These votes would have resulted in Trump and not Biden winning the state.
