GA Court Tries to Explain ‘Fictitious’ Trump Indictment

There is something a little funny going on in Georgia right now.

Hours before the grand jury returned the indictment against former president Donald Trump, the indictment was posted online.

The post was eventually taken down, then the grand jury returned its indictment, then the "real" indictment was posted, almost verbatim from the one that was handed down by the grand jury.


When Fulton Country District Attorney Fani Willis was asked to explain how this could happen, she pulled her best Joe Biden impersonation out and decided not to answer the question.

Here is the problem… if the indictment had not yet been returned by the grand jury, how was the indictment ready for posting hours before?

As soon as the indictment was posted, Reuters spotted it and reported it, which resulted in Fulton County Court pulling the posting off its website.

Then the court issued a scathing statement, calling the document, "fictitious," as though they had nothing to do with it.

The court warned the media "that documents that do not bear an official case number, filing date, and the name of The Clerk of Courts, in concert, are not considered official filings and should not be treated as such."

Monday night, the indictment was made official, and when Willis was asked about the mystery posting during her press conference, she stated, "No, I can't tell you anything about what you refer to. What I can tell you is that we had a grand jury here in Fulton County. They deliberated till almost 8 o'clock, if not right after 8 o'clock, an indictment was returned. It was true billed. And you now have an indictment."

After two days of getting blasted by the media and every legal pundit, the court is changing its tune just a bit.

It is now saying, "The Office of the Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts announces that midday on August 14, 2023, a media outlet utilizing the Fulton County Press que obtained a docket sheet and shared it with other media outlets who then released the sample working document related to the former United States President, Donald Trump – reporting that an indictment had been returned by the Special Grand Jury in Fulton County Georgia.

"Upon learning of the mishap, Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts, Ché Alexander, immediately removed the document and issued correspondence notifying the media that a fictitious document was in circulation and that no indictment had been returned by the Grand Jury.

"In anticipation of issues that arise with entering a potentially large indictment, Alexander used charges that pre-exist in Odyssey to test the system and conduct a trial run.

"Unfortunately, the sample working document led to the docketing of what appeared to be an indictment, but which was, in fact, only a fictitious docket sheet," reported Fox News.

The statement continued with what was basically a reaming of the media for jumping the gun.

There is one thing that the court failed to explain.. why did the "fictitious" document match the charges that came down in the "actual" indictment.

The statement by the court was someone covering their a$$ because something really stinks here and the court is obviously lying about what happened.

How did the court know how this indictment was going to come down… that is the question that has to be answered.
