The walls are closing in on Trump…
Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis (D) says the investigation into the former president’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results is finished, and charging decisions will come by September 1.
“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.
Ahead of the highly anticipated charging announcement, local law enforcement officials have been working to increase security in the area.
“I think that the sheriff is doing something smart in making sure that the courthouse stays safe,” Willis said, noting that she wrote a letter to the sheriff about security efforts.
“I’m not willing to put any of the employees or the constituents that come to the courthouse in harm’s way,” Willis added.
Trump has sought to block the investigation from proceeding. On Monday, a Georgia judge rejected one of the former president’s attempts to dismiss the probe. (RELATED: Georgia Judge Rejects Trump Effort to End Fulton County Investigation)
“The movants’ asserted ‘injuries’ that would open the doors of the courthouse to their claims are either insufﬁcient or else speculative and unrealized,” Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney wrote in the nine-page ruling.
