Fulton County DA Hit with Congressional Investigation Over Trump Indictment

The House Judiciary Committee is launching an investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) and the indictment of former President Donald Trump.

In a letter to Willis, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R) explicitly questioned her motivations for prosecuting Trump.

“Your indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated,” he wrote.

Regarding questions about her motivation, Jordan raised five issues:

  • four days before the indictment was announced, Willis “launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted” her investigation into Trump;
  • the infamous forewoman of the special grand jury that Willis convened who bragged about subpoenaing Trump;
  • the allegedly accidental release of a document by a Fulton County clerk showing the forthcoming criminal charges against Trump hours before the grand jury officially voted;
  • a judge disqualified Willis from targeting Georgia Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones (R) in her investigation; and
  • Fulton County officials announcing they will process Trump at the local jail like any other criminal, including forcing him to take a mug shot and post bond.

Jordan also raised concerns about the timing of the investigation, noting that Willis wants to begin trial during the heart of primary season next spring.

Additionally, Jordan said the indictment “appears to be an attempt to use state criminal law to regulate the conduct of federal officers acting in their official capacities,” which raises Supremacy Clause concerns. He also noted that Congress has a vested interest in the welfare of former presidents and possesses oversight power over federal funds distributed to local law enforcement agencies.

Finally, Jordan told Willis there are “questions about whether and how your office coordinated with DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith during the course of this investigation.”

The top House Judiciary Committee Republican thus requested documents from Willis’ office regarding its use of federal funds, documents or communications with the DOJ (including special counsel Jack Smith’s office), and any documents and communications with any federal officials about her investigation.

In a one-sentence statement, Fulton County District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Pallavi Bailey said, “We’re declining to comment on that.”

The letter was sent just hours before Trump is expected to surrender at the Fulton County jail. His bond has been set at $200,000.

  • Grant says:

    How can you say she will be disbarred when the entire system is controlled by the Democrats? They’re not going to stop this persecution of Trump, they started it and will make sure he can’t run in the 2024 election effectively giving the victory to Biden again. You still somehow think it’s a democracy we live in? Wake the fu up and shut your mouths and take it hard up the asshole because they’re going to see your posts and retro actively indict you for thought crimes when they get in again believe me. This is a one way road to absolute power for them and there’s no fighting fair or legal anymore and the conservatives are rule followers who’ll go to prison like sheep. end of fu story, end of America!

    Fat-Ass Fani, (militant, like her Black Panther militant father), you will be fried lard in the eyes of the nation, after they get done coming at your racist ass. You will lose!! Affirmative Action babies like you are going to start falling by the wayside. Are you really as stupid as you look? You need to get out of town while you still can. Go on down to Haiti, buy a bandana to wrap your swelled-up entitled head, and mix in with the natives. Lady, you just opened up a can of whoop-ass by bringing all these bogus charges, and you’ll be taught a lesson.
