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

This week, a three-member disciplinary panel in Washington, D.C., came to a preliminary, nonbinding conclusion that Clark violated his ethical duties as an attorney when he attempted to help overturn the 2020 election and thwart the peaceful transfer of power to Joe Biden.

Clark has not yet faced the nuclear option of being stripped of his license to practice law. A decision by the D.C. Bar Association’s disciplinary board as to what, if any, punishment Clark will receive will come after it reviews further submissions from both Clark and the disciplinary investigators.

Fulton County, Georgia Criminal Election Influence Investigation. Prosecuting Office: Fulton County, GA District Attorney’ Fani Willis’ Office.
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 3/26/24 reference post #130 here:
https://www.websleuths.com/forums/t...of-rico-act-aug-2023-4-guilty-4.701639/page-7

3/27/24 Update: Trump & Shafer: Hearing on 3/28/24 at 10am on (1) Trump post-hearing brief in support of his adopted demurrers & motions raising First Amendment as-applied challenges, and (2) David Shafer (a) general special demurrer to the indictment, and (b) general demurrer & motion to strike legal conclusions.
3/27/24 Update: (Roman): Defendants application for permission to appeal due before the GA Court of Appeals of Judge McAfee order on their motions to disqualify DA Willis, her office & special prosecutor Nathan Wade on 4/1/24. (Roman): Oppositions due to defendants application for permission to appeal before the GA Court of Appeals of Judge McAfee order on their motions to disqualify DA Willis, her office & special prosecutor Nathan Wade on 4/11/24. (Still): Motions (other than motions in limine) due for Shawn Still on 4/18/24 & (Roman): Last day for GA Court of Appeals to issue a decision on defendants appeal of Judge McAfee order on their motions to disqualify DA Willis, her office & special prosecutor Nathan Wade on 5/16/24.
3/27/24 Update: Judge Yvette Roland, who presided over months of testimony & argument about the basis of John Eastman’s fringe legal theories, ruled that the veteran conservative attorney violated ethics rules & even potentially criminal law — when he advanced Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results based on weak or discredited claims of fraud. Though Eastman may appeal Roland’s decision, including to the State Supreme Court, the ruling forces his law license into “inactive” status while any review is pending, meaning he can no longer practice law in California. In all, Roland found Eastman culpable for 10 of 11 charges that State Bar investigators brought against him, including misleading courts, lack of candor and, most notably, plotting with Trump to derail the transfer of power.
4/1/24 Update: Mark Meadows requested that Judge Scott McAfee hold an evidentiary hearing on his motion to dismiss the charges against him – his latest attempt to try to assert immunity, which other judges have repeatedly rejected. If he gets what he wants, Meadows could have to testify under oath – in a courtroom that allows cameras.
4/4/24 Update: Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee rejected the argument that Trump’s alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election were protected under the First Amendment. “The defense has not presented, nor is the Court able to find, any authority that the speech & conduct alleged is protected political speech,” the Judge wrote in his order. In his order, the judge also denied similar First Amendment challenges raised by other co-defendants in the case. Judge McAfee ruled that statements made by Trump & 14 others charged in the indictment handed down last year were made “in the furtherance of criminal activity” & not protected by the First Amendment. “After considering the extensive briefing, the argument of counsel, and the indictment, the Court finds these vital constitutional protections do not reach the actions & statements alleged by the State,” McAfee wrote in his order. “Nor do the statutes themselves facially violate the First Amendment. The Defendants’ motions are therefore denied.” Judge McAfee’s ruling is the latest step inching the state racketeering case against Trump forward. Willis has suggested she would be ready to go to trial as soon as August, but the judge has still not set a trial date for Trump or his remaining 14 co-defendants. Trump’s Georgia lawyer Steve Sadow said in a statement that Trump & other defendants “respectfully disagree” with the ruling & will explore their options.
4/5/24 Update: A three-member disciplinary panel in Washington, D.C., came to a preliminary, nonbinding conclusion that Jeffrey Clark violated his ethical duties as an attorney when he attempted to help overturn the 2020 election & thwart the peaceful transfer of power to Joe Biden. Clark has not yet faced the nuclear option of being stripped of his license to practice law. A decision by the D.C. Bar Association’s disciplinary board as to what, if any, punishment Clark will receive will come after it reviews further submissions from both Clark & the disciplinary investigators.
4/8/24 Update: On Monday, Trump filed a joint motion with 14 co-defendants asking Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee to allow them to appeal his April 4 order in which he said the charges should not be tossed because the defendants’ "actions & statements" about the 2020 presidential election were not constitutionally protected. In the Monday filing, Trump & the defendants argue that while the court held the indictment is not subject to dismissal, interlocutory appellate review of the defendants’ "vital constitutional protections," is "both prudent and warranted." Judge McAfee has 10 days from his April 4 order [4/15/24] to decide whether or not to let the parties appeal. If he does, they will have 10 days from that order to appeal to the Georgia Court of Appeals or the Georgia Supreme Court.
4/8/24 Update: Fulton county prosecutors asked the Georgia state court of appeals on Monday to reject Trump’s request to consider his claim that the DA Willis should be disqualified over a relationship with her deputy, arguing that the matter was correctly settled by the lower court judge. “The present application merely reflects the applicants’ dissatisfaction with the trial court’s proper application of well-established law to the facts,” prosecutors wrote in a 19-page filing.
*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.
 
Just tried finding Judge McAfee decision from Monday - but just finding the 4/4/24 articles.

Anyone? have better luck than me? TIA if you do! :)

edited to add - Fulton County court site is still down from the hackers.... so can not go in there & see what is happening.
 

A major deadline to file pretrial motions in the Fulton County election interference case has now passed for all defendants. Now, the only pretrial filings still allowed by the court are motions in limine, which pertain to evidentiary questions.

Most defendants had to file by Jan. 8. However, State Senator Shawn Still was granted an extension until April 18, according to a scheduling order signed by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee.

Still's extension came as a result of state law.

"As a current member of the General Assembly, the defendant is automatically entitled to a continuance," McAfee wrote in his order.

Georgia code -- O.C.G.A. 17-8-26(a) to be exact -- gives state lawmakers the right to obtain "continuances" in a case while they're engaged in their legislative duties:
 
Goog again for a decision - but I guess McAfee has not made it yet... or at least I am not getting any updated articles on it...
 
The only item coming up for GA on the Master Calendar (last updated 4/18/24) is this one

Thursday, May 16, 2024
GA (Roman): Last day for GA Court of Appeals to issue a decision on defendants appeal of Judge McAfee order on their motions to disqualify DA Willis, her office and special prosecutor Nathan Wade

link: Master Calendar of Trump Court Dates: Criminal and Civil Cases

Actually - I believe this is for all of them... even though it just has Roman's name. So the Judge Court of Appeals will be making his their decision - hopefully earlier! :)

edited again - I shall put them ALL on 5/16.

Keep in mind, the Georgia legislature is heavily Republican. The Senate is investigating the DA for the way she hired her lover to be a special prosecutor and paid him $600,000 of taxpayer money. She is saying she won't testify before the Senate Committee and doesn't believe they can legally subpoena her. She's up for re-election, the primary is this month and Black clergy have endorsed her. I've added a link from another news organization that maybe you can open.

The special committee was established after Willis found herself embroiled in a scandal related to a romantic relationship she had with Nathan Wade, a special prosecutor she hired in the case against Trump. It was argued that the relationship was improper and should disqualify Willis from continuing to lead the case, but she was allowed to remain on the condition that Wade was removed. Wade has since resigned, and the decision to keep Willis on the case is being appealed.

Georgia's state Court of Appeals said Wednesday that it will consider an appeal from former President Donald Trump challenging the decision not to disqualify Fani Willis as the district attorney overseeing the 2016 election interference charges against him.

The order said that Trump can file a notice of appeal within the next 10 days.


A lawyer for Trump, Steve Sadow, said in a statement that the former president "looks forward" to arguing before the appeals court that the case should be dismissed and Willis disqualified "for her misconduct in this unjustified, unwarranted political persecution."

ATLANTA – Marc Shultz has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Atlanta on charges of transmitting interstate threats to injure Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis because of her prosecution of Former President Donald Trump. Shultz made his initial appearance in federal court in San Diego, California on May 2, 2024, and will be formally arraigned in Atlanta in June…

“Threats against any individual, credible or not, is a very serious crime that the FBI will not tolerate,” said Keri Farley, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta. “Threats of violence against government officials, specifically, threaten the very fabric of our democracy. We want everyone to know that if you engage in such behavior, you will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

According to U.S. Attorney Buchanan, the indictment, and other information presented in court: On October 4, 2023, and again on October 5, 2023, Shultz allegedly posted multiple comments to two separate YouTube live stream videos. His comments threatened District Attorney Willis with violence and murder including a statement that she “will be killed like a dog.”

Marc Shultz, 66, of Chula Vista, California was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 24, 2024. Members of the public are reminded that the indictment only contains charges. The defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said she may refuse to testify before a state senate committee.

They are investigating allegations of misconduct during her prosecution of former President Donald Trump and others."

and

"But Willis said she has no plans to comply because she doesn’t think she has to.

“First of all, I don’t even think they have the authority to subpoena me. But they need to learn the law,” Willis said.

One senate source told Elliot they believe the subpoena would be legal but added, it is a legal gray area."

Case (with unindicted co-conspirators) & court info from 2/10/21 thru 4/8/24 reference post #144 here:
https://www.websleuths.com/forums/t...of-rico-act-aug-2023-4-guilty-4.701639/page-8

4/8/24 Update: On Monday, Trump filed a joint motion with 14 co-defendants asking Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee to allow them to appeal his April 4 order in which he said the charges should not be tossed because the defendants’ "actions & statements" about the 2020 presidential election were not constitutionally protected. In the Monday filing, Trump & the defendants argue that while the court held the indictment is not subject to dismissal, interlocutory appellate review of the defendants’ "vital constitutional protections," is "both prudent and warranted." Judge McAfee has 10 days from his April 4 order [4/15/24] to decide whether or not to let the parties appeal. If he does, they will have 10 days from that order to appeal to the Georgia Court of Appeals or the Georgia Supreme Court.
4/8/24 Update: Willis also filed a motion on Monday asking to block Trump's appeal last month of McAfee's ruling that allowed her office to remain on the case after she faced questions of conflict of interest for having a romantic relationship with the lawyer she hired to manage Trump's case, Nathan Wade. McAfee ruled that the DA could continue to lead the prosecution against Trump & his co-defendants as long as Wade stepped aside.
4/19/24 Update: A major deadline to file pretrial motions in the Fulton County election interference case has now passed for all defendants. Now, the only pretrial filings still allowed by the court are motions in limine, which pertain to evidentiary questions. Most defendants had to file by 1/8//24. However, State Senator Shawn Still was granted an extension until 4/18/24, according to a scheduling order signed by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee. Still's extension came as a result of state law.
4/27/24 Update: for ALL: Last day for GA Court of Appeals to issue a decision on defendants appeal of Judge McAfee order on their motions to disqualify DA Willis, her office & special prosecutor Nathan Wade on 5/16/24.
5/8/24 Update: The Georgia Court of Appeal on Wednesday decided to hear an appeal of a Judge's ruling allowing DA Willis to remain at the helm of Fulton County's election interference case against Trump. In a one page order, the appeals court said it would allow Trump to challenge the decision not to disqualify Willis over her relationship with her deputy. Trump has ten days to file a notice of appeal, the court said. [So by 5/18/24].
