Don’t Make Vacation Plans In August – Georgia Election Criminal Indictments Are Coming

Don’t make any vacation plans in August. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is clearly signaling that indictments in the Coup Plotter conspiracy in Georgia are coming down in August, and it will not just be Coup leader Donald Trump. Willis is signaling a RICO count that will attempt to take down the entire criminal enterprise in Georgia, including state party leaders involved in the fake GQP electors scheme, and Trump campaign officials and lawyers. This is what special counsel Jack Smith should be doing.

NBC News reports, Georgia prosecutor indicates charges in Trump election probe could come in early August:

The Georgia prosecutor investigating possible interference in the 2020 election by then-President Donald Trump and his allies has requested no trials or in-person hearings be held at the Fulton County courthouse in early August — a sign of when a decision on charges could be announced.

In a letter Thursday to the chief judge of the courthouse, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said she plans on having 70% of her staff working remotely between July 31 and Aug. 18. Those who will remain in the courthouse at that time include the leadership staff and “all armed investigators,” according to the letter, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News.

“I respectfully request that judges not schedule trials and in person hearings during the weeks beginning Monday, August 7 and Monday, August 14,” it said.

Willis did not give a reason for the unusual request in the letter, which was first reported by The New York Times.

In a separate letter to local law enforcement last month, she said she’d “announce charging decisions resulting from the investigation my office has been conducting into possible criminal interference in the administration of Georgia’s 2020 general election” during the state Superior Court’s fourth term, which begins July 11 and ends Sept. 1.

The special grand jury that Willis tapped last year to help investigate possible election interference by Trump and his allies recommended indicting more than a dozen people, Emily Kohrs, the jury foreperson, said on NBC News’ “Nightly News” in February.

“There are certainly names that you will recognize, yes. There are names also you might not recognize,” Kohrs added.

In the months since, a number of “fake electors” — people who signed a certificate falsely declaring that Trump had won Georgia in the 2020 election and themselves as the state’s official electors — have struck immunity deals with Willis’ office, according to court filings.

Criminal Defendant Donald Trump is in a panic. His lawyers have been prematurely filing motions – no one has been indicted yet – to try to dismiss the criminal probe against him.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the case. [Almost all criminals assert they are innocent.] His lawyers submitted a court filing in March arguing that all the evidence gathered by the special grand jury should be deemed unconstitutional and that Willis should be “disqualified from further investigation and/or prosecution of this matter.”

Note: Georgia’s governor, Brian Kemp, signed a bill that makes it possible to oust elected district attorneys from office if they are believed to not be adequately enforcing the law. It’s a move that is seen a thinly veiled power grab to push out Democratic prosecutors – and to interfere in Fani Willis’ criminal probe of Donald Trump’s Coup Plotter conspiracy. Georgia governor signs bill that allows removal of district attorneys.

In a response filed earlier this week, Willis’ office said Trump’s requests should be dismissed because they “lack merit.”

Trump’s lawyers then asked Tuesday for three weeks to reply to the DA’s response, a request Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney denied Friday.

“To date the Court has received well over five hundred pages of briefing, argument and exhibits on the issues raised by former President Trump,” he wrote. “That is plenty.”

McBurney said that if he needed any further information, he would ask for it.

If I want your opinion, I’ll ask for it” – a good sign the judge is not amused by Trump’s lawyers’ antics. There is next to zero chance that the judge will rule in Trump’s favor on prematurely filed motions.

  1. Another reason to not plan any vacations in August: when Dear Leader is criminally indicted, one should expect to see an increase in activity from right-wing domestic terrorist groups.

      NAACP issues travel advisory for Florida, says state “has become hostile to Black Americans”
      UPDATED ON: MAY 22, 2023 / 7:52 PM / CBS NEWS

      The NAACP issued a formal travel advisory for Florida on Saturday in response to what the organization described as Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.”

      The civil rights organization is the latest to caution travelers against visiting Florida; the League of United Latin American Citizens and LGBTQ advocacy group Equality Florida previously issued travel advisories.

      • New Zealand, the UK, France, Canada, and Ireland have all issued travel warnings to their people cautioning them about visiting the USA.

        • DHS National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin – Issued May 24, 2023 at 2:00pm ET,

          The United States remains in a heightened threat environment. Lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and personal grievances continue to pose a persistent and lethal threat to the Homeland. Both domestic violent extremists (DVEs) and those associated with foreign terrorist organizations continue to attempt to motivate supporters to conduct attacks in the Homeland, including through violent extremist messaging and online calls for violence. In the coming months, factors that could mobilize individuals to commit violence include their perceptions of the 2024 general election cycle and legislative or judicial decisions pertaining to sociopolitical issues. Likely targets of potential violence include US critical infrastructure, faith-based institutions, individuals or events associated with the LGBTQIA+ community, schools, racial and ethnic minorities, and government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement.
