Fulton County DA makes moves that hint at possible Trump charges coming: Report

 May 20, 2023

It's been a few months since former President Donald Trump has been faced with an indictment, but according to emerging reports, it could again happen sooner than later. 

According to The Hill, sources have indicated that a Fulton County, Georgia judge has cleared the scheduled in many ways for the first half of August, signaling a possible timeline for a new Trump indictment.

Were it to happen, this particular possible indictment revolves around the district attorney's attempt to prove that Trump and his team worked to overturn the state's 2020 election results, narrowing in on a phone call made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) during which Trump asked him to "find" more votes.

Anti-Trumpers and Democrats have long hoped for this particular case to move forward, as many claim it to be magnitudes of order more serious than the case brought against the former president by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.

The notice

It wasn't specifically noted in a series of emails and memos regarding the scheduling changes that it was due to possible charges being announced, but there were several major hints.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) asked the county's judges "not to schedule trials and in-person hearings in roughly the first half of August," The Hill noted.

The outlet added:

Willis also indicated about 70 percent of her staff will work remotely on various days in August, according to a letter sent Thursday to local judges, law enforcement officials and elected officials.

"I respectfully request that judges not schedule trials and in person hearings during the weeks beginning Monday, August 7 and Monday, August 14,” Willis wrote. “If judges schedule in person hearings during the post-conference days when my office will be working partially remote, senior leadership will handle those proceedings," she wrote.

In addition, she thanked the recipients of the memo for helping keep the judicial complex "safe during this time."

Many interpreted that to be a clear sign that charges against Trump could be filed, which could trigger protests from both the former presidents supporters and detractors.

When will it happen?

Willis had previously stated that if she were to announce any charges, it would come between July 11 and Sept. 1.

The charges would likely hit a number of the former president's current and former inner circle, including figures such as former adviser and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

For his part, Trump has consistently written off the case as yet the Democrats' latest political witch hunt attempt.

Only time will tell if charges are announced, but even if they're weak, the timing is not ideal, given that Trump's 2024 campaign will be ramping up by that time.
