America Confused About Fani Willis' Decision
Much of America shares a common opinion about the actions of Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis right now.
Many of us need only one word to define them:
Former federal prosecutor, Joyce Vance, said it first:
Willis' decisions in the case regarding Donald Trump allegedly trying to overturn presidential election results in Georgia in 2020 have been a "little perplexing" for everyone trying to make sense of the issue.
Trump and 19 other people were indicted in the case. All of them were charged with "violating the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act."
Four of the 19 accused have already accepted a plea deal and agreed to testify.
Trump has definitely NOT accepted a plea deal.
He pleaded not guilty to all accusations.
Now, America (Joyce Vance included), is a little confused at why Willis would request the trial start in August of 2024.
By the time that case gets rolling, it's going to be time for the 2024 presidential election.
If Trump wins, he would be sworn into office on January 20, 2025.
That date is probably before his Georgia trial would even be over if it didn't start until August.
While many have speculated that the U.S. Supreme Court would pause the trial until Trump was out of office, many people want to know why Willis wouldn't be eager to get this done before Trump has a chance to take office.
"With Judge Aileen Cannon in Florida showing signs of being less than committed to her May trial schedule, there might be some room for an earlier date in Georgia, which makes the timing of Willis' request a little perplexing," Vance said. "The Mar-a-Lago case is straightforward, and it's hard to imagine it taking more than several weeks, at the outside, to try. We may gain some insight Friday on when Judge McAfee wants to try his case."
