Georgia Grand Jury: Lindsey Graham Should Be Indicted For Election Crimes

A grand jury in Georgia believes that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) committed crimes related to efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

That stunning revelation comes from an official report of grand jury proceedings that was released this morning and flagged by Stephen Fowler of Politico.

However, despite the grand jury recommendation, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis declined to charge Graham.

Mediaite notes that the grand jury report had been under seal.

The report had been under seal for nine months and was ordered released by a Georgia judge. The document includes the grand jury’s recommendations to prosecutors, including who the jury also recommended be indicted but District Attorney Fani Willis, who convened the grand jury in 2021, eventually passed on indicting – including three sitting U.S. Senators.

Though Willis didn’t indict Graham, the U.S. Department of Justice could still do, which is certainly a possibility since Special Counsel Jack Smith has made it clear that no one is off-limits when it comes to being charged with crimes related the 2020 election. After all, Smith has already obtained indictments against former president Donald Trump for his role in the election conspiracy.

Fani Willis Claps Back Hard At Jim Jordan: ‘You Lack A Basic Understanding Of The Law’

Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis has had quite enough of the petty threats and other distractions from House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and she’s responding to his childish actions by reminding him that his knowledge of the law is tenuous at best.

Jordan has repeatedly accused Willis of trying to “interfere” in the 2024 election by charging former president Donald Trump as part of a racketeering conspiracy to overturn the results of balloting in the Peach State as part of the 2020 election, which Trump lost in an electoral landslide.

Focusing on a letter Jordan sent in August, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Willis accused the congressman of using “inaccurate information and misleading statements” for his own political gain.

“Its obvious purpose is to obstruct a Georgia criminal proceeding and to advance outrageous misrepresentations,” Willis said in response to Jordan’s letter. “As I make clear below, there is no justification in the Constitution for Congress to interfere with a state criminal matter, as you attempt to do.”

Willis also noted that Jordan was legally ignorant.

“Your letter makes clear that you lack a basic understanding of the law, its practice and the ethical obligations of attorneys generally and prosecutors specifically.”

It should be noted that Jordan never sat for the bar exam in his home state and has never actually practiced law, as MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell noted in a brutal takedown of the Ohio Republican earlier this year.

“An Ohioan who is a graduate of Capital University Law School, but has never passed the bar exam – so is not a lawyer – Congressman Jim Jordan got a reply to his letter from Harvard Law School graduate Alvin Bragg, the district attorney of Manhattan.”

“Alvin Bragg’s reply letter to Jim Jordan is the single most humiliating letter ever received by a chairman of the House Judiciary Committee – every one of whom has known much more about the law than Jim Jordan.”

Jim Jordan is a sycophantic jackass who wants to advance his political career when he isn’t busy serving as Donald Trump’s full-time fluffer. He’s an embarrassment to his party, the Congress, and the United States.

Court Documents Reveal Mark Meadows And Other Co-Defendants Are Already Flipping On Trump

With each day and each new court filing from attorneys representing co-conspirators who allegedly worked with disgraced former president Donald Trump to try and overturn 2020 election results in the state of Georgia, it becomes clearer that many of those charged are eager and willing to toss the ex-president under the bus in order to save their own asses, according to a report from Politico.

One of those co-defendants is former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

During a hearing in Atlanta, a defense attorney for Meadows called attention to Trump’s prominent role in what is certain to be a crucial element of prosecutors’ case there: the infamous Jan. 2, 2021, phone call in which Trump demanded that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, “find” enough votes to declare Trump the winner.

Meadows arranged that pivotal call. But after prosecutors played audio of the call in the courtroom, an attorney for Meadows emphasized that his client’s part in the actual discussion was both more minor and less provocative than Trump’s.

“There’s a lot of statements by Mr. Trump. Mr. Meadows’ speaking roles were quite limited,” Meadows’ lawyer, Michael Francisco, observed as he cross-examined Raffensperger, who was called to testify by prosecutors.

“He didn’t make a request that you change the vote totals — Mr. Meadows, himself?” Francisco continued.

“Correct,” Raffensperger replied.

And then there was this, which also appeared in court documents:

Meadows made clear in his own testimony at last week’s hearing that Trump viewed the false electors as a significant part of his strategy to remain in power. He said he sent an email pushing the campaign to assemble those slates because he feared a tongue-lashing from Trump.

“What I didn’t want to happen was for the campaign to prevail in court action and not have this” lined up, he said.

“Why?” prosecutor Anna Cross asked him.

“Because I knew I’d be yelled at by the president of the United States,” he said.

The Georgia racketeering charges filed against Trump and 18 co-defendants by Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis could send each person to prison in the Peach State for decades, meaning that everyone associated with the conspiracy has a strong incentive to cooperate with prosecutors or prepare for a long term of incarceration.

Trump has also been indicted in Florida and Washington, D.C. by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Attorney Says Trump’s Georgia Co-Defendants Are About To Turn On Each Other And Donald

Disgraced former president Donald Trump and his 18 co-defendants charged with racketeering in Georgia for attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election are facing decades behind bars, which means many of them will be looking to cut deals with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, according to criminal defense lawyer Danny Cevallos.

Cevallos appeared on MSNBC Saturday and was asked by host Yasmin Vossoughian about legal filings this week in the Peach State by several of Trump’s co-defendants who are attempting to sever their cases from the group and be tried separately.

Cevallos responded:

“Motions to sever, the prosecution had to know this was coming, that probably all of these defendants, or most of them, when everything is said and done, will probably seek severance in one form or another because they are going to argue, as Sydney Powell did, for example, that ‘I did some things that had nothing to do with these other things and I do not want the guilt of being associated with all of these other people.'”

Those motions, Cevallos added, suggest that many of the people charged are ready to turn on each other in order to save their own skin.

“Watch as all of these defendants turn and start pointing the finger at each other. On one sense, it is difficult procedurally because it creates a lot of work, but on the other hand, Fani Willis must be sitting saying watch them all point the finger at each other.”

Joe Biden Reacts To Trump’s Mugshot – And His Comments Are Laced With Some MAJOR Shade

Though he has refrained from commenting on the legal problems facing failed former president Donald Trump, President Joe Biden was asked for his thoughts today on the mugshot taken Thursday in Georgia of the disgraced ex-president.

Biden, who is on vacation in Lake Tahoe, California, was asked by reporters if he’d seen the Trump mugshot.

The president chuckled and replied, “I did see it on television.”

What did you about the picture? A reporter inquired.

Biden (with perfect deadpan): “Handsome guy. Wonderful guy.”

Twitter immediately lit up with applause for Biden, with many noting that the shade he directed at Trump was epic.
