Georgia District Attorney Ready To Indict Trump And Others As Soon As December: Report

A district attorney in Georgia is reportedly ready to begin handing down indictments against failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump and others as soon as December, according to CNN.

The Georgia prosecutor leading an investigation into efforts by Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election is aiming to quickly wrap up the grand jury’s work after the midterm elections and could begin issuing indictments as early as December, sources familiar with the situation tell CNN.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has said that her investigation into attempts to subvert the 2020 election will go quiet beginning later this week to avoid any appearance of influencing the upcoming election. But while her investigation will not make any overt moves in the next few weeks, her team is gearing up for a flurry of activity after Election Day.

The reason for the December date is simple, according to former US attorney Michael J. Moore:

“I think her hands are tied, certainly, until after the midterms. She wants to pull some of the politics out of it, so to ensure that the investigation is not forgotten, instead of sort of rattling the sabers and subpoenaing other witnesses you would just say you know we’re going to take this time to reflect on the investigation.”

The investigation by Willis is tied to the infamous phone call Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which the ex-president urged election officials in the Peach State to “fine” the votes needed to guarantee he would be declared the victor in the state, which President Joe Biden won by nearly 12,000 ballots.

Willis is also looking into the selection of alternate and fake electors who would agree to cast their votes for Trump when presenting results to the Electoral College. That action alone is a felony.

 Danny Porter, former district attorney for Georgia’s Gwinnett County, explains what Willis is investigating:

“It has moved from just the idea of the phone call to the Secretary of State to a much broader investigation of tampering with the election.”

Willis has suggested that she may seek to charge Trump and others with RICO charges, which would involve a larger conspiracy of criminal behavior.

Willis has said she could pursue RICO – Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations – charges as part of her investigation. Racketeering charges, sometimes used in gang-related activity, allow prosecutors to bring charges against multiple defendants. Willis could use the law to try to make the case that Trump and his allies were part of a criminal enterprise in their various efforts to pressure state officials, put forth fake electors and otherwise try to influence the election.

Why RICO? Willis explains:

“The reason that I am a fan of RICO is, I think jurors are very, very intelligent. They want to know what happened. They want to make an accurate decision about someone’s life. And so, RICO is a tool that allows a prosecutor’s office and law enforcement to tell the whole story.”

WATCH: Conservative Tries To Justify Voting for Herschel Walker And Gets Slammed By CNN Panel

CNN political commentator Alice Stewart got hit with a heavy dose of criticism when she tried to defend the indefensible actions of Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker and suggest that he’s still the beset person in the race.

Recent revelations about Walker — including his allegedly paying for a girlfriend to have an abortion and physically abusing his family — won’t matter to voters in the Peach State, Stewart suggested, because they are focused on on issues such as inflation and crime:

“We’re seeing character and ethics are not a qualifying factor for elected officials anymore. It’s unfortunate but it’s actual reality… But conversations in my home state of Georgia, they’re not concerned with what Herschel Walker did in 2009.”

That led CNN Senior Political Analyst John to counter with this reminder:

“What we’re saying is character doesn’t count. That’s what’s really dangerous. If you go down that slippery slope and say that character doesn’t count, confidence doesn’t count, telling the truth doesn’t count, what you’re really saying is, ‘Party above country, power above everything.'”

When Stewart said that voters would still support Walker due to his conservative policy positions, commentator S.E. Cupp pounced:

“I don’t see conservatism in a lot of this, I don’t see policies, principles, ideas. I see people like Herschel Walker and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert and Donald Trump and Matt Gaetz vice-signaling to their base. And all they’re voting for now is, ‘Who do they hate and are they the same people I hate?'”

Donald Trump Elections WTF?!

Trump Claims Pollster Said He Would Have Beaten Washington And Lincoln Running On The Same Ticket By 40%

Speaking to the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) Hispanic Leadership Conference in Miami, Florida on Wednesday, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump claimed that a pollster once told him if he ran against George Washington and Abraham Lincoln running on the same ticket with each other, he would have beaten the two beloved presidents by 40%.

According to The Recount, Trump remarked:

“I remember a very famous pollster, very well known, John McLaughlin, came to my office just prior to the plague coming and he said, ‘Sir, if George Washington and Abraham Lincoln came alive from the dead and they formed a President-Vice President team, you would beat them by 40 percent.’ That’s how good our numbers were.”

How do we know Trump made up this conversation? Obviously, because Donald is a pathological liar and has never told the truth about anything.

The other way we know it to be a complete falsehood is because it’s simply a reimagination of comments the disgraced ex-president made while still in office, according to Business Insider.

Donald Trump told journalists that he believed he could beat George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in an election.

“I think it would be hard if George Washington came back from the dead and he chose Abraham Lincoln as his vice-president, I think it would have been very hard for them to beat me,” Trump told Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.

Trump also said something similar to conservative host Hugh Hewitt.

“I don’t know if you’ve seen, the polls have been going up like a rocket ship. George Washington would have had a hard time beating me before the plague came in, before the China plague.”

Had Trump not repeatedly downplayed the seriousness of the COVID pandemic, the 2020 election might have been closer, but Biden would still have won because a majority of voters said they voted against Trump because they were tired of his extremist policies and endless scandals.

Supposedly, Trump is planning to run again in 2024. Apparently he wants to lose twice and be even further humiliated.

Jim Jordan In Danger Of Losing Reelection As Sex Abuse Survivor Group Resurrects His Ugly Past

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) may think he won’t have any trouble winning another term in the House of Representatives, but a group of survivors who say they were sexually abused by a team doctor while Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, are trying to derail the congressman’s bid for reelection.

According to WCMH-TV, the group says Jordan’s failure to report what was happening makes him unfit for any elected office.

Some survivors of sexual violence at the hands of former Ohio State University physician Richard Strauss have taken their advocacy to Ohio’s 4th U.S. House District race, where Democratic hopeful Tamie Wilson faces an uphill struggle against incumbent Republican Jim Jordan.

Abused by the team doctor under the guise of medical exams from 1978 to 1998, the survivors – some of whom donned “#MeToo Jordan Knew” T-shirts outside Ohio Stadium on Saturday during an Ohio State football game – argued Jordan’s failure to protect them from a predator makes him unfit for office.

Jordan’s Democratic challenger, Tamie Wilson, had this to say about the incumbent congressman:

“Character matters. If this guy is going to be a part of sexual abuse, he’s not going to defend the Constitution or our country.”

For his part, Jordan says any allegations against him are unfounded and not supported by some who have reached out to him.

“The number of wrestlers who have reached out to me, who’ve said this is complete baloney. We’ve got statements that have been sent to us, people willing to help and tell the truth. We’ll continue to get that information out.”

And yet, dozens of former student athletes report that Dr. Strauss, between the years of 1979 to 1996, performed medically unnecessary genital exams, which they reported to university officials, including Jordan. Yet nothing was reported by those officials and Strauss continued to molest young boys.

Strauss survivor Tom Lisy notes:

“His coverup of the OSU sexual assault is the real crime, the real slight. There’s guys I know who trained with him every day and they went through a journey together and he has completely turned his back to them.”

New Poll Shows Lauren Boebert Is On The Verge Of Losing In The Midterm Election

One of the most controversial (and useless) Republicans in Congress is on the verge of losing her seat, according to a new poll.

Axios reports that the race between Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is now statistically tied with her Democratic challenger, Adam Frisch. The election is now just 34 days away.

Boebert received support from 47% of likely voters, while Democrat Adam Frisch landed at 45% — making the race a statistical tie within the ±4.4 percentage point margin of error.

7% of voters are undecided, per the poll.

Even more surprising is that Frisch has gained ground in just a few months time, putting him well within range of beating Boebert.

The survey, taken Sept. 2–Oct. 2 by Keating Research, a Democratic firm and one of the most accurate pollsters in Colorado, represents a 5-point swing toward Frisch. In July, Boebert held a 49%-42% advantage.

Unaffiliated voters — those not aligned with a major political party — strongly dislike Boebert, who’s known for her Christian nationalist rhetoric, opposition to bipartisan legislation, and lighting rod remarks about guns and immigration. Those voters are shifting toward Frisch as the election progresses, pollsters said.

What does this mean for an incumbent in a year that is supposed to be favorable for GOP candidates?

Chris Keating, president and founder of Keating Research, explained:

“With Boebert under 50%, that means she is vulnerable to losing this race.”

Boebert has been under scrutiny recently after a report came out suggesting that her neighbors in Colorado’s Third District wish she and her family would move elsewhere.

The Denver Post obtained recordings of the calls to police and report that Boebert’s neighbors said they feared for their lives at times because the Boebert clan “all have guns.”

Allegedly, Boebert’s husband, Jayson, is known to drink and drive:

“Jayson’s probably drunk. You could probably get him for a DUI, he just drove down here.”
