Fulton County DA Says She Won’t Rule Out Subpoenas For Trump And His Family

Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis is putting failed former president Donald Trump and his family on notice as she ramps up her investigation of possible crimes committed by them in an attempt to steal the 2020 presidential election the the Peach State.

Speaking with Blayne Alexander of NBC News, Willis said she has not ruled out issuing subpoenas for Trump and his three oldest children, Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric:

“We’ll just have to see where the investigation leads us. I think that people thought that we came into this as some kind of game. This is not a game at all. What I am doing is very serious. It’s very important work. And we’re going to do our due diligence and making sure that we look at all aspects of the case.”

On Tuesday, the grand jury Willis has impaneled to look at possible election crimes committed in Georgia issued subpoenas for several others connected to Trump’s attempts to have officials name him the winner of balloting in the state, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported:

In addition to Giuliani, among those being summoned are John Eastman, Cleta Mitchell, Kenneth Chesbro and Jenna Ellis, all of whom advised Trump on strategies for overturning Democrat Joe Biden’s wins in Georgia and other swing states.

The grand jury also subpoenaed South Carolina U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Trump’s top allies in the U.S. Senate, and attorney and podcast host Jacki Pick Deason.

In the days ahead, don’t be surprised if Willis does indeed subpoena Trump, who will find it difficult to ignore such a summons since he is no longer president and has no protection from such legal actions.

The biggest threat to the disgraced ex-president right now is in states such as Georgia, especially since there is audiotape of him demanding that Brad Raffensperger, the state’s secretary of state, find tens of thousands of votes for him even though he had clearly lost and the election had already been declared the most secure in U.S. history.
