Georgia DA Gets Catastrophic News Hours After Indicting Trump

Published on

The District Attorney of Fulton County, Fani Willis, who is presently prosecuting former President Donald Trump and others, received bad news from a former federal prosecutor on Tuesday.

During her Tuesday appearance on CNN, Jennifer Rodgers, a former federal prosecutor, stated that it is unlikely that Willis will obtain the desired outcome following the indictment. The District Attorney has set an ambitious goal of initiating trial proceedings against the former president and 18 additional defendants within six months.

Addressing the former prosecutor, CNN anchor Sara Sidner said, “Back in 2022 just last year, she brought a case against a rapper and several others. What does that tell you about the timing of this case and how quickly or slowly it might be able to come to trial?”

“Fani Willis has a lot of experience with RICO throughout her prosecutorial career, so she knows what she’s doing in this regard. But going back to the Young Thug case, it’s still in jury selection. I mean months and months just in jury selection,” she said.

“Picking a jury for the former president and these other high-ranking former officials and lawyers and so on is going to be even more complicated than picking a jury for the Young Thung RICO case so to me that just underscores again that six months is an unrealistic goal to try this thing,” she said.

Before the indictment, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney addressed important logistical matters during a typical Monday morning session at the courthouse, where he presided over the grand jury proceedings.

According to McBurney, a grand jury typically presents an indictment in the afternoon, when photography and videography are permitted. This statement was made to a group of media and members of the public who were present in his courtroom prior to the start of motions in a nightclub shooting-related murder case.

As previously reported, the Georgia judge overseeing the indictment against Trump has decided that “at least part” of the trial “may be televised.”

Due to Georgia’s laws regarding courtroom cameras, this court appearance for Trump may be unlike any other. When deciding whether to permit cameras, Georgia law permits judges to consider the parties’ consent, concerns for the safety of those participating in proceedings, and the effect on due process.

On offenses related to the 2020 election, Trump and 18 others were indicted, including Trump’s counsel Rudy Giuliani, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, and several of Trump’s advisors.

The allegations are being referred to as a “racketeering case,” with The New York Times claiming that the Trump campaign’s actions while traveling to Georgia to expose ballot irregularities constituted a “criminal enterprise” attempting to “reverse the results” of the election.

In contrast to federal and Manhattan courts, where the former president appeared for his three previous arraignments, Georgia law requires the judge’s sanction before allowing cameras into court proceedings. The presiding judge has ultimate authority over camera access. Rule 22 requires media organizations to submit a formal request for the judge’s consideration. The filing is frequently viewed as a mere formality, as requests are nearly always granted.

If Trump is brought into a Georgia courtroom, it is probable that the proceedings will be transmitted live on television, and it is possible that the entire proceedings will be broadcast, which would be a first.
