NYT Signals ‘Big’ Trump Indictment Coming Out Of Georgia Soon



Donald Trump Georgia indictment

Days after the world saw Donald Trump get indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney on 34 felony counts related to hush money payments to an adult film star and Playboy model before the 2016 election, legal experts are focused on Fulton County, Georgia, where District Attorney Fani Willis could be bringing a “big” case against Trump over his efforts to overturn his election loss in the state.

As reported by The New York Times, Trump is facing a “blizzard of legal challenges” in Georgia, where the investigation into the former president’s attempts to tamper with the 2020 presidential election results could thwart his attempt to escape prosecution by running for president for the third time.

The Times points out “numerous signs that Willis may go big, with a more kaleidoscopic indictment charging not only Mr. Trump, but perhaps a dozen or more of his allies.”

“While nothing is certain, there are numerous signs that she may go big, with a more kaleidoscopic indictment charging not only Mr. Trump, but perhaps a dozen or more of his allies,” the report states, before adding, “Nearly 20 people are already known to have been told that they are targets who could face charges, including Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s former personal lawyer, and David Shafer, the head of the Georgia Republican Party.”

It further notes: “The wide scope of the investigation has been evident for months, and Ms. Willis has said that seeking an indictment under the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, statute is an option that she is considering,” the Times report added that Willis “may do so after a new grand jury begins its work in the second week of May, though nothing is set in stone. Typically, presenting such cases to a regular grand jury is a short process that takes a day or two.”

Regarding using RICO to go after Trump and his associates, Willis previously stated, “RICO is a tool that allows a prosecutor’s office or law enforcement to tell the whole story. And so we use it as a tool so that they can have all the information they need to make a wise decision.”

Emily Kohrs, the forewoman of that special grand jury, strongly hinted in an interview with The New York Times in February that Mr. Trump was among more than a dozen people who had been recommended for indictment. “You’re not going to be shocked,” she said, when asked whether Mr. Trump was named in the report. “It’s not rocket science.”
