Vivek Ramaswamy says Trump should move for dismissal in Georgia after early reveal charges

 August 16, 2023

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis caused a stir on Monday when she held a press conference to announce yet another indictment against former President Donald Trump.

Yet according to a Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, one detail connected with the indictment may give Americans who support Trump reason to cheer.

Ramaswamy calls early reveal of Trump's charges "pathetic"

Ramaswamy was referring to the fact that Fulton County's official court website published and then deleted charges against Trump before the grand jury had officially released its indictment.

This led Ramaswamy, who is an entrepreneur and Yale Law School graduate, to allege that Trump's civil rights had been violated.

"Here we go again: another disastrous Trump indictment. It’s downright pathetic that Fulton County publicly posted the indictment on its website even before the grand jury had finished convening," Ramaswamy wrote in a tweet on Monday.

Ramaswamy offers to write amicus brief on Trump's behalf

"Since the four prosecutions against Trump are using novel [and] untested legal theories, it’s fair game for him to do the same in defense," the Republican candidate continued.

Ramaswamy suggested that Trump should "immediately file a motion to dismiss for a constitutional due process violation for publicly issuing an indictment before the grand jury had actually signed one."

"He should make a strong argument on these grounds [and] it would send a powerful message to the ever-expansive prosecutorial police state," the businessman insisted.

"As someone who’s running for President against Trump, I’d volunteer to write the amicus brief to the court myself," Ramaswamy offered.

He declared that "prosecutors should not be deciding U.S. presidential elections, and if they’re so overzealous that they commit constitutional violations, then the cases should be thrown out [and] they should be held accountable."

Law professor: Indictment "essentially criminalizes challenges to elections"

Ramaswamy is far from being alone in going after Willis, as George Washington Law School professor Jonathan Turley did so too.

Turley told Fox News that Willis' indictment is an "excessive" and "dangerous" move that "essentially criminalizes challenges to elections."

"There's no sort of limiting principle in this document," Turley stressed. "They are charging things like the president saying publicly, we need to have a recount. Democrats and Republicans challenge these elections routinely."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
