Former President Donald Trump’s legal team wasted no time blasting Georgia’s irresponsible indictments of the 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner along with 18 associates. The Monday night action was criticized as “flawed” and “unconstitutional.”
Attorneys labeled Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ witch hunt “shocking and absurd.” They noted the apparent leak of the charges before the official announcement and even before panelists theoretically reached their final decision.
Drew Findling, Jennifer Little, and Marissa Goldberg railed against the “one-sided grand jury presentation.” They charged the panel based its findings on some witnesses “who ran campaigns touting their efforts against the accused.”
Some of Trump’s detractors, his attorneys declared, profited from book deals and employment opportunities as a result of their crusade against the former president.
Critics hardly knew where to begin in dismantling Willis’ case — the flaws were that widespread.
First, one of the leading accusations against Trump is that he denied the election results were legitimate despite knowing they were. Does any honest party believe that the former president is not convinced that he was robbed on Election Night?
Listen as Fani Willis attempts to explain the Georgia indictment against President Trump and others… this is what corruption looks like people !! The democrats are destroying our country !!!

Expressing that belief is clearly protected by the First Amendment, as any civics student knows.
Trump’s legal team, of course, stepped up to defend him from what many believed to be election fraud and interference. Is he not entitled to the Sixth Amendment guarantee of the right to legal counsel?
The egregious Fulton County document leak also came while the grand jury was still hearing testimony. Before the panelists voted.
How is this legally possible?
Further, the sweeping charges encompass a national election. Having an elected county official charge a former president with alleged crimes committed nationally is not only grandstanding but well outside of her jurisdiction.
Honest Democrats must acknowledge that former President Trump is being subjected to persecution never seen in this country. Third-world banana republics would be ashamed to commit such atrocities.
How are these dozens of felony charges from four separate indictments possibly justifiable? What is clear is that prosecutors from New York City to Georgia are attempting to print their names in history books as the person who brought down a president.
They will be toasted by leftists as long as they live if successful. But what they are doing, as Trump’s attorneys rightly noted, is patently absurd. It doesn’t stand up to the slightest scrutiny and is a stain on the nation.
