Fulton County DA Tells Staff To ‘Be Ready’ As Charges Against Trump Loom
Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis has told her staff to “be ready” as she let it slip this week that she may have made some charging decisions in her investigation into Trump’s 2020 election interference in the state.
During an interview with WABE, Willis said that she was “not willing to make her decision public at this time,” hinting that she may have already decided what charges to bring against the former president.
“I haven’t made any decisions regarding charging, at all, at least none that I’m willing to make public at this time,” she said.
“No matter what decision I make in that case, emotions are going to be high, and people may want to do things that would be harmful,” Willis said. “I always tell my staff if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready.”
Willis also indicated that she is aware the country is closely watching the case.
“I do understand that the country is interested in this. It’s always been interesting to me, like how much the country is paying attention. But for me, everyone is entitled to dignity. Everyone is entitled to being treated fairly. So we want to make sure that we don’t do anything differently in this case than we would in others,” Willis said.
Willis plans to announce charging decisions over the summer, according to WABE.
