The House Judiciary Committee is looking into Fulton County (Georgia) DA Fani Willis and her decision to pursue criminal charges against President Trump’s exiting administration.
On Thursday, Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) sent a letter announcing the probe. According to a letter sent by Jordan to Willis, the federal government has a lot at stake in her accusation and prosecution, and the circumstances surrounding her acts give rise to suspicions of possible political intentions.
In her letter, Jordan included a reference to Willis’ prior fundraising efforts to bolster her case against the ex-president.
To underline her inquiry into President Trump, Jordan pointed out that she only four days before her indictment started a new campaign fundraising website.
Jordan said the special grand jury was formed earlier that year to investigate President Trump, and during a media tour, the forewoman of the grand jury expressed excitement at the prospect of subpoenaing Trump and having him sworn in.
Trump will visit the Fulton County prison in Atlanta and surrender. A governmental investigation into his alleged efforts to derail the 2020 presidential election in Georgia has resulted in 13 indictments against him. Trump’s bail was $200,000, and his case will likely be handled and resolved shortly. His official arraignment, at which he will likely plead not guilty, is set for the beginning of next month.
Trump will likely have his photo taken in jail. Some people accused and photographed as part of Willis’ investigation were Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, and others.
The Republican majority in the House is bolstering its investigation into state charges in Georgia with stories from the media. Special Counsel Jack Smith of the Department of Justice is accused of using the same witnesses and evidence that Willis used.
Jordan noted that according to media reports, Willis’s office and Mr. Smith studied similar material before deciding to prosecute President Trump, as stated in the committee letter. The letter says that if federal agencies or officials were engaged in her inquiry or indictment, the House Committee on the Judiciary may investigate.
The committee has asked the district attorney’s office to turn over any information relating to federal funding, interactions with the Department of Justice or its components, and partnerships with executive branch members.
By 10 a.m. on September 7, the District Attorney’s Office must turn over all requested documents.
