Former President Donald Trump criticized Fulton County Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis for the recent revelation that a Georgia special grand jury recommended indicting more individuals than those who were actually charged in the 2020 election case.
In response to a nine-page report that showed 39 people receiving charges recommended by the grand jury, with 18 of them being charged against the former president, Trump expressed his concern.
Among those not indicted were Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., former U.S. Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue of Georgia, and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“The Georgia Grand Jury report has just been released. It has ZERO credibility and severely undermines Fani Willis and her entire political Witch Hunt,” Trump posted on Truth Social.
“Essentially, they wanted to indict anyone who happened to be breathing at the time. This completely undermines the credibility of the findings and significantly harms the Great State of Georgia. Its wonderful and patriotic people are not happy with this out-of-control ‘prosecutor’ doing the work of, and for, the DOJ. It is ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”
On August 14, Willis indicted Trump and 18 others with felony charges of interfering with the 2020 presidential election.
Many of those indicted, including former New York mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, have testified before the special grand jury.
Trump, the current front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, was never called nor appeared before the grand jury.
The Georgia criminal case is the fourth involving Trump. He is also facing charges related to his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election and incite the January 6, 2021 Capitol attack, mishandling of classified documents, and hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
