Fani Willis Is Giving Us Huge Hints That She's Going to Charge Trump in August

Fulton County AG Fani Willis -- who is overseeing the investigation into former President Donald Trump's attempts to improperly overturn the Georgia election results in the 2020 presidential race -- may have indicated when she will issue charges against him and his allies who sought to do the same.

From The New York Times:

The Georgia prosecutor leading an investigation into former President Donald J. Trump and his allies has taken the unusual step of announcing remote work days for most of her staff during the first three weeks of August, asking judges in a downtown Atlanta courthouse not to schedule trials for part of that time as she prepares to bring charges in the inquiry.

The moves suggest that [Willis] is expecting a grand jury to unseal indictments during that time period.

And from The Guardian:

Willis made no explicit mention of Trump during the meeting, but the specific timing is understood to reflect the expected window for indictments after previous indications suggested charging decisions would come during the court term that runs July to September.

This investigation represents the most likely one (among the many Trump is currently facing) to result in Trump being held accountable for his illegal attempts to remain president, after he so clearly lost in the 2020 race. It is illegal for any person to try and coerce, convince, or threaten an elections official, in the state of Georgia, to engage in election fraud.

Trump clearly did so -- audio recording of him, in a conversation with State Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in late 2020, showed that Trump demanded he "find" him enough votes to "win" -- and threatened Raffensperger and his lawyer with legal repercussions if he did not do so.
