Georgia case: Alleged abuse and threat investigation

by ian

A trio of updates recently came out of the fourth round of indictments announced against former President Donald Trump in Georgia.

For starters, Republican Georgia State Sen. Colton Moore is gunning for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. In a letter sent to Gov. Brian Kemp, Moore requested an emergency session of the state legislature to investigate Willis for potential abuse of power.

In addition to this letter, Moore issued a petition on his campaign website asking for constituents to support his call for a special session.

He further outlined his “disgust” with Willis on Thursday’s episode of the Charlie Kirk Show.

Willis issued 41 charges against Trump, most of which center around what she said was his team’s “conspiracy to unlawfully change the outcome of the election in favor of Trump.”

Seeing as how this is only the most recent in a slew of indictments against the former president, many Trump supporters are growing increasingly irate with Democrats and the Justice Department. But these Georgia indictments are bringing out an ugly side of that frustration.

According to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, grand jury members in the case face constant online threats. The Sheriff’s Office said the jury members’ personal information is being shared across various platforms, with some posts indicating the users will look into the jurors’ lives.

Anyone aware of any such threat is asked to call 911 or their local police department to report it.

It is worth noting that the grand jurors’ names were originally made public by the district attorney’s office in accordance with Georgia law.

This comes after a Texas woman was recently arrested for threatening to kill federal Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is presiding over Trump’s election interference case in Washington, D.C.

This type of behavior is eerily reminiscent of a recent, nationally-watched case: that being the 2021 trial of Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of murdering George Floyd.

In that case, one person threatened to kill a jury member; someone else left a “bloody pig’s head” at the former residence of one of the defense witnesses; and even President Biden chimed in saying the jury was under “extreme pressure” to make the “right” decision. Safe to say, this behavior is nothing new.

But returning to the news on the Georgia case, Trump also canceled an upcoming press briefing. Trump had previously promised to provide information on Monday which he claims would have led to this exoneration.

Instead, at the advice of his lawyers, Trump cancelled the event and plans to file the information in an attempt to affect the dismissal the indictment.
