In a Sunday Truth Social post, former President Trump asked Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to concentrate on Atlanta killings rather than a politically driven case. According to reports, Willis plans to indict the former president and at least a dozen of his aides in relation to challenges to the Georgia 2020 election.
In a post on Truth Social early on Sunday, Trump stated: “Why is ‘Phoney’ (Like in PERFECT ‘PHONE’ CALL, get it?) Fani Willis, the severely underperforming D.A. of Fulton County who is being accused of having an ‘affair’ with a Gang Member of a group that she is prosecuting, leaking my name in regard to a Grand Jury pertaining to Election Fraud & Irregularities that I say took place in Georgia.”
“I made a PERFECT PHONE CALL OF PROTEST. What does Phoney Fani have to do with me? She should instead focus on the record number of murders in Atlanta!” he added.
CNN reported on Sunday that Willis had text messages and emails “directly connecting” members of Trump’s legal team to a Coffee County voting system hack in early January 2021. State racketeering (RICO) charges against Trump and his allies are anticipated to be brought by Willis, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“The only Election Interference that took place in Fulton County, Georgia, was done by those that Rigged and Stole the Election, not by me, who simply complained that the Election was Rigged and Stolen,” Trump wrote in a follow-up post.
“We have Massive and Conclusive Proof, if the Grand Jury would like to see it. Unfortunately, the publicity-seeking D.A. isn’t interested in Justice, or this evidence. Also, as in Manhattan, the corrupt DOJ is pushing hard trying to keep Biden in Office. The whole system is dishonest and broken!”
The message evidence in Willis’ case against Trump may be a key component of the Fulton County District Attorney’s grand jury presentation this week in her election fraud case against the 77-year-old current front-runner in the 2024 GOP presidential primary — who has already been hit with three criminal indictments this year.
“Just landed back in DC with the Mayor huge things starting to come together! Most immediately, we were just granted access — by written invitation! — to Coffee County’s systems. Yay!” reads a text conversation sent on January 1st, 2021 between coworkers at Sullivan Strickler, the law firm Trump’s team hired to investigate the voting procedures in the predominately Republican county, according to CNN.
Rudy Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City, who served as Trump’s attorney at the time, was referred to as “the Mayor” in other letters received by the same group, the site claimed.
According to texts and other records, it appears that Trump’s campaign began battling for access to voting machines in the rural county with a preponderance of Republicans as early as mid-December.
The letter of invitation was purportedly written by Misty Hampton, a former Coffee County elections official who attracted the attention of Trump’s supporters by falsely asserting that Dominion voting machines could “very easily” flip votes from one candidate to another in the days following the election.
A Trump campaign employee sent Hampton an email asking to “obtain as much information as possible” regarding the voting situation in the county, which Trump won by 70%, in an effort to postpone the certification of Joe Biden’s victory, CNN said.
Hampton refused to recount the results before the deadline in early December, delaying the certification of Biden’s victory in the Peach State.
Giuliani and Trump’s other attorneys utilized a video Hampton allegedly made alerting the public to problems with the county’s voting technology in an attempt to persuade other state legislators that voter fraud tainted the results of the 2020 election.
In a draft of executive orders to seize voting machines that was given to Trump during a meeting in the Oval Office on December 18, 2020, Coffee County was not included.
According to previous testimony he and others gave before the House committee on January 6, Giuliani also allegedly made mention of intentions to obtain “voluntary access” to Georgia voting machines at the time.
According to CNN, Hampton gave the Trump team a written invitation to visit the Coffee County election office a few days after the crucial Oval Office encounter.
On January 1, 2021, just a few days before the breach, Katherine Freiss, another lawyer who collaborated with Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and other Trump friends, allegedly distributed the invitation to a group of Trump supporters.
Additionally, according to reports, Freiss extended the invitation on the same day to disgraced former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, who had partnered with his former employer Giuliani to support their allegations of voter fraud.
Prior to DA Fani Willis possibly bringing an indictment against Donald Trump and his friends over the Georgia 2020 election, the sheriff’s office in Fulton County put security measures in place.
The texts examined by the site then claimed that Hampton and elections officer Cathy Latham reportedly assisted Trump’s team in gaining access to the Coffee County voting system.
Particularly Latham has drawn criticism for security footage that allegedly captures her allowing unauthorized individuals access to the polling machines.
The investigation into allegations of election meddling being conducted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, which will be presented to a grand jury this week, is anticipated to involve the text messages and other conversations.
