This isn’t good.
Former President Donald Trump’s recent statements regarding the investigation into his actions surrounding the 2020 election in Georgia have fueled speculation about the possibility of another indictment. In a post on his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump made a prediction similar to one he made before being indicted in Manhattan earlier this year, suggesting that charges against him would be dropped due to insufficient evidence.
According to Newsweek, In his post, Trump criticized Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, referring to her as a “Racist District Attorney” and highlighting the high crime rate in Atlanta. He claimed that Willis, who initiated the investigation two years ago, would drop all charges against him, citing a lack of a compelling case. The investigation initially focused on Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, during which he urged Raffensperger to find additional votes to secure his victory over Joe Biden. Over time, the probe expanded to include Trump’s associates, election worker threats, a fake elector scheme, and unauthorized access to voting machines. Throughout the process, Trump has maintained his innocence.
Notably, Trump has faced indictments in two other investigations conducted at the state and federal levels. The Manhattan district attorney’s office and the Department of Justice (DOJ) charged him in relation to hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels during his 2016 campaign and mishandling confidential and classified documents discovered at his Mar-a-Lago residence, respectively. Prior to his indictment in Manhattan, Trump dismissed the case as “fake” and claimed that the district attorney had dropped it. However, a grand jury indicted him on 34 felony charges of falsifying business records. Subsequently, the DOJ charged him with 37 felony counts related to the mishandling of national security documents found at Mar-a-Lago.
Commentators have noted the timing and nature of Trump’s recent prediction, speculating that he may have received information regarding the ongoing investigation. Trump’s defense of his phone call with Raffensperger remains consistent, asserting that it was a legal conversation concerning what he believes to be a rigged and stolen election. He emphasized that none of the lawyers present on the call indicated any wrongdoing.
It’s worth mentioning that the viewpoints expressed by attorney Ron Filipkowski and the website Palmer Report, characterized by Trump as “liberal fake news,” have drawn attention to Trump’s prediction, suggesting that it indicates his knowledge of an impending indictment by Fani Willis.
