Former President Donald Trump has verbally attacked Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis during a campaign rally, making unsubstantiated claims that she had an affair with a gang member.
This comes as Willis is reportedly preparing to seek more than a dozen indictments against Trump and his allies in relation to her investigation into election interference during the 2020 elections.
Willis initiated the investigation after a recording of a call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger was made public, revealing Trump pressuring Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes.” Joe Biden had won Georgia by a slim margin of 11,779 votes.
The potential indictment in Georgia would mark the fourth criminal indictment against Trump within a span of five months, making him the first former president to face such charges.
The indictment could add to Trump’s legal woes as he faces federal cases related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. Trump’s legal troubles also extend to a federal case in Washington, D.C., where a judge is considering a protective order after Trump’s social media post seemingly promised retaliation against those pursuing legal action against him.
Meanwhile, Trump’s defense team has raised questions about the use of multiple grand juries in the investigation into his handling of classified documents and allegations of obstruction.
The involvement of multiple grand juries is being reviewed by a Florida judge overseeing the case.
