With all of the legal issues swirling around failed, one-term former President Donald Trump, it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with all of the jurisdictions currently investigating and possibly preparing to indict him.
One of the cases that hasn’t gotten nearly as much ink as the ongoing probes in New York is the election meddling investigation being conducted by Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis, who believes that the Donald meddled in the 2020 election in the Peach State by calling Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and urging him to “find” thousands of votes that would turn the tide and allow Trump to be declared the winner.
Willis’ case, according to former U.S. Attorney Michael J. Moore, is a strong one.
Moore was asked by CNN host Fredricka Whitfield:
“You can build it. You just have to be specific in your claims and allegations,. You want to show somebody had an intent to do something wrong, and that they tried to influence somebody else to participate in it or to turn things in a way that made it more favorable to the defendant. So fraud is a tough case on its own. But again, in these cases, you either trace the money, you trace the phone call, you trace the emails.”
He added that the phone call Trump made is compelling evidence:
“What you find is these fraudsters and folks out there get caught by their own tongue. They just are unable to keep their mouths shut. That’s why we’ve got an hour-long, essentially, confession about the president in Georgia on the case. He is soliciting somebody, that being the secretary of state, to commit election fraud. When you have a confession, the case against is a lot simpler.”
The tape of the phone call Trump made to Raffensperger makes clear that the former president did indeed try to meddle with the election results in Georgia. The grand jury Willis has impaneled will indict Trump and the case will go to trial. And there’s a very real possibility that Trump will be found guilty.
Fani Willis has Donald Trump nailed on the charge of election meddling. His phone call is all the evidence she needs to prove the serial sexual assaulter did indeed attempt to overturn the will of voters in Georgia.
Game, set, and match, Fani Willis.
