A former federal prosecutor had one word to describe the recent actions to describe the prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia.
It just makes Trump look even better every time his opposition portrays themselves as clowns.
The federal prosecutor at issue, Joyce Vance, was of course referring to the Georgia trial that District Attorney Fani Willis wants to take place before the 2024 election involving Donald Trump.
Nineteen people were indicted in that case, and Willis' suggestion that the trial should start on Aug. 5, 2024, would almost certainly mean that Trump might be sworn in as president before the trial concluded.
The winner of the 2024 election is going to be inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2025.
This August, a grand jury voted to indict Donald Trump and 19 other people over alleged attempts to overturn the results of the presidential election in the state of Georgia in 2020.
Trump was 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 NOT done that. He's pleaded not guilty to all 13 counts he is facing in Georgia.
Vance wants to know why Willis isn't trying to put Trump on trial later in the year, because Trump could very well become president and then have a whole new set of rules applied to him in the middle of the trial.
If Willis' preferred schedule does come to pass, speculation is that the U.S. Supreme Court would delay the trial until Trump was eventually out of office.
Regardless of why Willis is making these decisions, one thing is perfectly clear:
They don't make a lot of sense no matter what side of the issue you're on.
"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," Joyce 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."
