GA - Ex-POTUS Donald Trump and others indicted, 13 counts in 2020 election interference, violation of RICO Act, Aug 2023 *4 guilty* #4

It should never have been brought because all it has done is fuel Willis' ego and Trump's ego at the expense of Fulton County taxpayers. The fact that Willis' lover--who has never prosecuted a criminal case--has been paid over $600,000 by the taxpayers is incredibly disgusting. None of the three should hold public office ever again.

Mistakes were made for sure, but Trump is doing what Trump does best—creating doubt in any institution that might come up with an unfavorable result for him. It’s what he does, and people fall for it every time.

100%.

Typical DARVO methodology, imo. Deny, attack, reverse victim (here, the person or the institution they represent) & offender.
 
I try to remember what this case is about, rather than focusing on the side distractions.
And I hope that, one day, the Fulton County taxpayers will be thanked for their part in exposing and prosecuting serious election interference.


trump: All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes .... Look, we need only 11,000 votes ... Look, Brad, I got to get, I have to find 12,000 votes ....

Ryan Germany: The numbers that we are showing are accurate.

trump: Why don’t you want to find this, Ryan? What’s wrong with you? ..... all we have to do Cleta is find 11,000 plus votes ....

The problem is no jury in Georgia is going to unanimously convict Trump. It is a very red state.

It's U.S. voters who need to make sure he and his cult never hold public office again.

Maybe.

But US voters have a right to have their voting result protected. And they have a right to know when someone(s) has tried to blatantly strip that right from them - because that someone(s) may try to do that again.

Let's just hope that on Election Day 2024, the people who fall for it every time are far outnumbered by those who don't.

My county takes election integrity very seriously. When I was summoned for election duty, the training took 4 hours. I seriously doubt this is ever attempted again because the perps will get caught.

I totally agree with you--because Trump is who and what he is, I believe Ms. Willis should have recused herself when a hint of any kind of distracting scandal started. She should realize this case is bigger than her--- It seems to me her ego is getting in the way of her doing what is best for this case. That is a shame--

It wouldn't have mattered who was in her place, nor what kind of life they lived, that person, though she or he were as pure as the driven snow, would be a target and their daily life would become a scandal.

Bottom line. Right there!
 
Here are his exact charges -

Donald John Trump (77) indicted & charged (8/14/23) with 1 count (1) of violation of the Georgia RICO (Racketeer Influenced & corrupt organizations) Act (there are 161 acts listed), 4 counts (5, 9, 28, 38) of solicitation of violation of oath by public officer, 2 counts (13 & 19) conspiracy to commit false statements & writings, 1 count (15) conspiracy to commit filing false documents, 2 counts (11 & 17) conspiracy to commit forgery in the 1st degree, 1 count (27) filing false documents & 2 counts (29 & 39) of false statements & writings.

I agree U.S. voters need to hold him accountable, but also all those other defendants in the GA RICO case need to be held accountable, and they aren’t being prosecuted by the federal government—only Trump. They were just as instrumental in trying to overthrow the election results, so I think the GA case is super important. They committed crimes in Willis’ jurisdiction so I just feel like she had not only a right, but a duty, to bring this case. It’s a tough one, that’s for sure, but important IMO.

BBM. That's up to a Georgia jury to decide and the folks in Georgia that I personally know are not happy with picking up the $600,000+ tab for Willis' lover. Even if Willis' recuses herself, I think this one is going to result in a hung jury or worse, an acquittal.

Wisconsin's fake electors haven't been charged, and several weeks ago, one of them, Andrew Hitt, an attorney and former chairman of the state Republican Party, agreed to sit down with us to explain how he says he and Wisconsin's other GOP electors were tricked by the Trump campaign.

Andrew Hitt says he and the other Republican electors met anyway to cast fake votes because he'd been told the Trump campaign would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Kenneth Chesebro, a pro-Trump attorney — who was an alleged architect of the fake electors plan — showed up to watch.

DONALD TRUMP: Ah, beautiful kids Andrew. Good. Good. I'm going to blame you Andrew if they don't do it.

Andrew Hitt: Can you imagine the repercussions on myself, my family, if it was me, Andrew Hitt, who prevented Donald Trump from winning Wisconsin.

Anderson Cooper: You're saying you were scared?

Andrew Hitt: Absolutely.

Officials with the Fulton county court handed the indictment to judge Robert McBurney.
Proposed trial date on 8/5/24.
Judge Scott McAfee presiding. DA Fani Willis. See above for defense attorney for each defendant.

Case (with unindicted co-conspirators) & court info from 2/10/21 thru 2/2/24 (Roman, Trump, Cheeley) reference post #48 here:

2/15/24 Update: Roman, Trump & Cheeley: AG Fani Willis, Nathan Wade & Robin Bryant-Yeartie (former friend [Willis] & co-worker took the stand. Evidentiary hearing continues on 2/16/24.
2/16/24 Update: Roman, Trump & Cheeley: The two days of hearings were filled with drama: talk of trips to Aruba & rented cabins & a Norwegian cruise. But underlying the salacious nature of the testimony is the future of one of the most important of the cases against Trump. Willis & Wade each took the witness stand to describe their relationship, insisting it had nothing to do with the case against Trump. Defense lawyers accused special prosecutor Nathan Wade of perjury for denying his romantic relationship with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis began before he was hired in November 2021 to help prosecute Trump & 14 remaining defendants on charges of election interference. Wade & Willis each testified under oath that their relationship began in spring 2022 & ended in summer 2023. But defense lawyers contend the relationship began as early as 2019 & that Willis profited from it, so they should be disqualified from the case. Witnesses who testified: Willis' father, John Clifford Floyd III, Terrence Bradley, a former law partner of Wade who represented him in his divorce, former Georgia Gov. Roy Barnes & Robin Yeartie, a former longtime friend & work colleague of Willis. McAfee ruled Friday that Bradley could refuse to answer questions based on attorney-client privilege.
Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, who will rule sometime two weeks or so from now on whether Willis, the special prosecutor Nathan Wade & the rest of the Fulton county district attorney’s office will continue to handle the Trump trial, or if instead it will be handed to another attorney chosen by the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia. Judge Scott McAfee wound down court proceedings for the day & said he will work with attorneys to find a date for closing arguments — possibly late next week or the following week. Next for
ALL: Pretrial hearing on 2/20/24.
*Scott Graham Hall - (fake GOP elector tied to Coffee County breach) Plead guilty (9/29/23) & sentenced to 5 years of probation in exchange for testimony moving forward (including at trials of other co-defendants), a $5K fine & 200 hours of community service. Probation becomes non-reporting after 2.5 years, assuming he does not violate his probation during those initial 2.5 years. And will have to write letter of apology to Georgia citizens.
*Sidney Katherine Powell (68) - took a plea deal & plead guilty to 6 counts of conspiracy to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties & sentenced to 6 years probation, required to testify at future trials, pay at $6K fine & #2,700 in restitution to the State & write an apology letter to the citizens of Georgia & admit her role in the January 2021 breach of election systems in Coffee County.
*Kenneth John Chesebro (61/now 62) – took a plea deal (10/20/23) & plead guilty to Count 15 Conspiracy to commit filing false documents. All other charges dismissed. Sentenced to 5 years probation, $5K restitution fine, 100 hours of community service & an apologize letter to the citizens of Georgia & testify against all other co-conspirators truthfully. Also no communication with media, witnesses & co-defendants, recorded proffer with prosecutors, provide documents & evidence. Resides in Puerto Rico & Judge will see if he can get probation transferred there. As part of his plea deal, Chesebro admitted that he conspired to put forward fake GOP electors in Georgia with Trump & former Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani & John Eastman. Giuliani & Eastman have both pleaded not guilty in the Georgia case & now face the prospect of Chesebro taking the witness stand against them."
*Jenna Lynn Ellis (38/now 39) – Took a plea deal to charge of aiding & abetting false statements & writings. Ellis plead guilty on 10/24/23. Sentenced to 5 years probation, $5K fine, apology letter to the citizens of Georgia, 100 hours of community service & testify truthfully against other co-defendants.
