Reporter Confronts Fulton County DA About Mysterious Leak

On Monday, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis refused to comment on how a draft of the indictment against former President Donald Trump and 18 others had been leaked.

Earlier that day, Reuters had discovered a document uploaded to the Fulton County Court website which indicated an “open” case against Trump for charges that were later confirmed in the official indictment.

The document even included a case number and judge’s name before it was deleted and described as “fictitious” by the court. It remains unknown how this information was leaked prior to the grand jury’s decision.

At a press conference after the grand jury handed down the indictment, Willis was asked about the leak. However, she refused to provide any additional information or clarification on the matter, instead appearing to deny its existence.

“I can’t tell you anything about what you refer to,” Willis said.

“What I can tell you is that we had a grand jury here in Fulton County. They deliberated until almost 8:00 [p.m] if not right after 8:00 [p.m]. An indictment was returned, and we now have an indictment. I am not an expert on clerks’ duties or even administrative duties. And so I’m not going to speculate,” the DA added. “Next question!”

The problem for Willis is that Trump’s attorneys will use the incident as ammunition that their client was not afforded a fair process.

“The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has once again shown that they have no respect for the integrity of the grand jury process,” attorneys Drew Findling and Jennifer Little said in a statement Monday afternoon.

“This was not a simple administrative mistake,” the statement continued. “A proposed indictment should only be in the hands of the District Attorney’s Office, yet it somehow made its way to the clerk’s office and was assigned a case number and a judge before the grand jury even deliberated. This is emblematic of the pervasive and glaring constitutional violations which have plagued this case from its very inception.”

Following the release of the indictment, Trump’s legal team characterized the events as “shocking and absurd” and referred to the leakage of information as a “major fumble,” citing it as evidence that Willis had taken an imprudent approach in moving forward with the indictment.

    It only goes to show that the American Mainstream News Media even ‘eats their own.’ As the old saying goes: “No good deed ever goes unpunished.” This type of “administrative mistake” (snickering) may be cause for a later Legal Appeal if former President Trump is Convicted. It also shows that the Progressive Left is extremely sloppy in going after their Political Opponents (Enemies) and only embarrass themselves in the process.

    I believe it was a deliberate leak as the case wont hold water. Georgia is being investigated for, hold on, voter fraud. Seems it has been found that Georgia has a serious problem with voter fraud and Trump has been claiming voter fraud so could this whole case be an effort to coverup the fraud? All these false charges are nothing more than an effort to keep Trump from running for office.

      every silly thing that these sleezes are condemning President Trump for is based on hatred and being scared! Trump is not a force to reckon with bc he does what he says and will go after anyone who does unlawful things in this country. the left is about the most unlawful group there is – they are a disgrace!!!!! good riddance to them

    We can thank those fools in Fulton County who showed themselves to truly be the illiterate, ignorant and utterly stupid hearts and minds of Fulton County officials. Add to that the blow hard sheriff made an asinine statement, “Donald Trump will be fingerprinted, have a mug shot made” just like every other person charged”. DA FANI (unusually fitting name for her) and the sheriff’s comment showed that the opinion held by most of the country and the world is that Southerners are racist, absolute bullies when they have any degree of power or money, and they just sit around sipping whisky while planning another KKK rally. AMERICA, THOSE TWO PEOPLE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES REPRESENT THE TRUE, PATRIOTIC AMERICAN SOUTHERNER WHO SERVES THE LORD, OUR BELOVED COUNTRY AND DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE BY THEIR COLOR, SPEECH OR RACE. We love America and justice but unfortunately those two fools prefer to love and promote themselves more than they want truly fair elections and completely just and unbiased judicial behavior.

    Nothing new. Atlanta/Fulton County Demos have always been liars, thieves, murderers, assaulters, vote stealing ballot box stuffers. And how do I know? I lived there for over 40 years until I got out in 2020.
