Fani Willis Held Meeting with Kamala Harris at White House Before Trump Indictment
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis reportedly held a five-hour meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris at the White House months before the indictment of former President Donald Trump in Georgia, as revealed by a schedule record.
The Heritage Foundation's Oversight Project, represented by Mike Howell, disclosed the information on Tuesday, indicating Willis's visit to the White House on February 28, 2023, preceding Trump's indictment.

According to a screenshot of the schedule, the meeting with Vice President Harris extended over five hours.
Notably, shortly before this meeting, a grand jury in Georgia investigating claims of election interference recommended multiple indictments.
In August, Trump, along with 18 co-defendants, including figures such as White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Rudy Giuliani, and others, faced indictment in Georgia.
Trump has since sought to dismiss the case, appealing to the First Amendment's protection of political speech.
Trump's attorneys, Steve Sadow and Jennifer Little, argue that the First Amendment encourages the kind of behavior targeted in the indictment.
Speculation arises about potential coordination between the White House and the prosecution of Trump, especially considering recent revelations that a top county prosecutor met twice with the Biden White House before the indictment.
A filing by political operative Mike Roman, a co-defendant with Trump, questions whether there was coordination between the White House and the prosecution of Biden's likely 2024 opponent.
The filing suggests that lead prosecutor Nathan Wade met with Biden's White House counsel on two occasions before the indictment, raising concerns about potential improprieties in their relationship.
The filing claims that Wade's law firm used county funds for potentially fraudulent payments, including financing exotic vacations for Willis. These developments intensify scrutiny over the circumstances leading to Trump's indictment in Georgia.
