Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis was the latest Democrat prosecutor to indict Donald Trump.
This case just took an unexpected turn.
And Fani Willis made one giant error that had Donald Trump jumping for joy.
Trump lawyers Ken Chesebro and Sidney Powell were among the 19 individuals indicted by Willis in one of the most absurd and offensive Frankenstein monsters of an indictment any prosecutor ever filed.
Critics contend Willis indicted Chesebro and Powell for offering legal advice to the Trump campaign on how to best challenge the results of the 2020 election.
Chesebro and Powell won the right to sever their cases from Trump and the other 16 co-defendants and begin a speedy trial on October 23.
This will allow Trump and the other co-defendants to see how Willis plans to present evidence, what witnesses she will put on the stand, and what holes emerge in their testimony following questioning by both Willis and defense counsel.
But now Judge Scott McAfee opened the door to tossing the case entirely.
That’s because McAfee ruled in favor of a motion by Chesebro and Powell’s attorneys to interview the grand jurors to see if Willis improperly presented the indictment by not reading it in full or summarizing the charges.
“Defense counsel here are entitled, and would be expected, to conduct a thorough investigation in the zealous representation of their clients,” Judge McAfee ruled.
“Should defense counsel believe sufficient grounds and the requisite prejudice exist to dismiss the indictment after the conclusion of the final grand juror interview, Defendants will be permitted an extension from the regular deadline to file additional particularized motions,” Judge McAfee’s ruling continued.
From the start Willis’s indictment was highly problematic.
Willis indicted Trump, his aides, lawyers and supporters for engaging in political activity, offering legal advice, and simply challenging an election result.
In addition, Willis leaned on a shaky interpretation of a legal theory to charge individuals for engaging in a conspiracy without committing any illegal act.
Former chief of staff Mark Meadows faced criminal charges for getting a phone number and setting up a meeting.
Willis claimed Donald Trump telling Americans to watch TV constituted an act in furtherance of a conspiracy.
The indictment Willis filed against Trump and the other co-defendants defied the normal bounds and understanding of the law.
But Republicans argued all of that was beside the point because Willis just wanted to pile her charges on Trump’s head before the election to increase the chances Democrats could win a conviction before the election and help Joe Biden win re-election.
