“The work is accomplished,” Willis told local news station 11Alive on Saturday. “We’ve been working for 2 1/2 years. We’re ready to go.”
“Some people may not be happy with the decisions that I’m making, and sometimes, when people are unhappy, they act in a way that could create harm,” Willis added.
“The work is accomplished ... We’re ready to go.”

"In a letter to the chief judge of the Fulton County courthouse in May, Willis signaled in a scheduling request that charging decisions stemming from an investigation into 'possible criminal interference in the administration of Georgia’s 2020 general election' could come in early August," NBC News reported.
"Willis also said in a separate letter to law enforcement that she’d announce charging decisions during a state Superior Court term that began this month," it added.
The investigation could add to current legal concerns for Trump as he deals with his case over classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago home last year during an FBI raid.
The former president also faces potential charges related to his role in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6, 2021.
The Georgia case is based on allegations that Trump interfered in Fulton County following a close loss to President Joe Biden. Allegations could include other GOP leaders, such as South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
The buzz is building about the latest case, with Trump using the attacks to continue his lead in polls in a comeback bid for the White House.
