Former President Donald Trump has thus far evaded the requirement of being photographed for a mugshot during his previous indictments. However, this situation may undergo a reversal if he faces charges in the state of Georgia.
According to sources who talked to CNN, it is expected that District Attorney Fani Willis would seek over twelve indictments against Trump and other individuals in this case.
According to Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat, there will be a photographic session with former President Donald Trump.
“First and foremost, we will follow our own policies and procedures. We simply don’t … give any leniency just because of your status. Ultimately, there may be a court order that his lawyers may ask for, there may be some alternate … processes around it, but we’ll stay focused on our policies and procedures. And if a mugshot is warranted, we’ll follow that policy and procedure as well,” according to Axios.
“And so again, we treat everybody equally,” he asserted. “We’ve certainly learned from both New York as well as Miami. So, we’ve got a lot of different agencies involved.”
A quick search on the website “Open Secrets” which details which organizations and individuals give to which politicians, etc, shows that Sheriff Labat contributes to Democrat candidates. Labat is black as well, the same as Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is most likely an anti-white racist. DA Willis actually campaigned on indicting Trump while she ran for her elected position of DA. She was giddy and laughing when she announced the indictment this week.
Trump’s campaign railed against Willis this week as they revealed she is the daughter of a former Black Panther and said that she comes from a “family steeped in hate.”

According to a report by Mediaite, during his appearance at the Iowa State Fair, President Trump was questioned on allegations of an impending indictment in Fulton County. In response, he expressed his sentiments passionately toward the district attorney.
A reporter inquired whether there was a possibility for the former president to enter into a plea agreement in the state of Georgia.
“We did nothing wrong. We don’t ever take a plea deal. We don’t take plea deals. It’s a wise guy question. You’re just a wise guy. “We don’t take plea deals because I did nothing wrong. It’s called election interference,” President Trump shot back in response.
“Because these indictments are going out by Biden. Who can’t even put two sentences together. This is Joe Biden. Because he can’t win the election by himself. He can’t win the election based on votes. So what they did is they got the attorney general to do it. And then you see how stupid they acted yesterday with the appointment of the special counsel. They call it special counsel. And what a crazy thing that was. And it’s being laughed at all over the world,” Trump continued.
“The fact is that we have a country that’s in serious trouble. We have a country that’s in major decline. I don’t mean decline, I mean major decline. And we’re going to straighten it out. This group and a lot of people just like this group. We’re going to straighten it out, and we’re going to make America great again. Wise guy,” Trump added with another shot at the reporter.
In response to a sequence of criticisms directed on her, Willis retaliated against Trump last week.
In a written correspondence, she vehemently criticized an advertisement that was being circulated throughout a nearby market, which aimed at criticizing her. Additionally, she provided guidance to her employees, instructing them to refrain from engaging with the aforementioned advertisement.
According to a story by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, she also asserted that the prosecutions conducted by herself and her colleagues were only driven by professional considerations rather than personal motivations.
“Each of you represents me. Especially, ADA’s who all took an oath under my name. We often remind you if you are an ADA you are my personal staff and represent me. Many of you are quite kind to me, very protective, and will become very defensive if someone attempts to attack me, the office, or your colleagues. You may not comment in any way on the ad or any of the negativity that may be expressed against me, your colleagues, this office in coming days, weeks, or months,” Willis ordered.
“We have no personal feelings against those we investigate or prosecute and we should not express any. This is business, it will never be personal,” she added.
The Atlanta Journal article continued:
In the minute-long ad, titled “The Fraud Squad,” the narrator refers to Willis as “Biden’s newest lackey.” It says that Willis presided over a sharp rise of violent crimes in Atlanta and highlights her office being disqualified from investigating Lt. Gov. Burt Jones in her long-running election interference case due to a political conflict of interest.
But the most incendiary allegation is that Willis “got caught hiding a relationship with a gang member she was prosecuting.” It cites as evidence a Jan. 25, 2023, article in Rolling Stone.
But the ad gets several facts wrong. The Rolling Stone article is an interview with YSL Mondo, one of Willis’ former clients in 2019 when she worked as a defense attorney, and it doesn’t make reference to any sort of affair.
In the interview, Mondo is quoted saying that he had some “auntie-to-nephew, mother-to-son type of talks” with Willis. But the article notes that the two didn’t talk after his case was resolved.
