A judge in Fulton County, Georgia, failed to properly follow the precedent set by the state Supreme Court in allowing the county’s top prosecutor to go forward with a grand jury investigation of former President Donald Trump after disquaifying the prosecutor from part of the probe for misbehavior.

Hoo Boy: Unearthed Posts Show DA Fani Willis Pushed Election Conspiracies, Including One You'll Remember

Look, I realize that the actual charges against Trump do not center on simply claiming the election was stolen (the RICO conspiracy supposedly leads to the alternate electors scheme), but anyone who can read the above post and not laugh has no sense of humor. Think about it. While Willis lectures Trump at press conferences about daring to tarnish the supposed sanctity of Georgia's elections, she was out there talking about busted water pipes and claiming the election might be stolen from Democrats. I mean, come on. You can't script irony any better than that.

The prosecutor has made many posts on social media questioning election outcomes and procedures. She did so not only for the 2020 election but also concerning the 2018 midterm elections. As Benny Johnson observed, “Fulton County DA Fani Willis regularly questioned election results & used her office to push unfounded election conspiracies. On the eve of Trump’s arrest in Georgia for “challenging” an election — a deep dive into the prosecutor’s history of doing the *same* thing.”
Attached to Johnson’s post was a statement by Willis that “A TEAM of lawyers needs to watch” what occurs in Georgia and ensure every vote is counted. She noted that the team should start in her own county and ensure that Georgia gives “an honest accounting” without “stunts.” In her rant, she also noted the strange and convenient water leaks that occur in that county.
Benny Johnson further wrote, “As a public official, Fani Willis regularly and consistently questioned Georgia’s election procedures and pushed unfounded election conspiracy theories on her public social media profile. Fani is indicting Trump for the *exact* same thing.”
Attached to that post is Willis asking “Why Fulton” after news of a water burst interrupting ballot counting broke. Nor is Fani Willis new to expressing election skepticism. Benny Johnson noted that “In the days following the 2018 midterms, Fani Willis expressed concerns about the election not being properly run by implying all votes weren’t counted.”
Attached to that comment was Willis’s November 24, 2018 Facebook post that read in part “You all better start paying attention to what is really going on…and pay attention to reality” in connection to vote counting. Johnson also found that “[h]ours after the last ballots in the 2018 midterms were cast, Fani Willis openly boasts about the power Georgia’s Secretary of State has to” manipulate elections.
Attached to that was her post where she wrote of the Secretary of State’s office, “That person controls elections. I wonder if we yet realize that is an important role.” It gets worse for Willis, though, as one of her posts in 2020 noted that the 2020 election was a “mess.” Johnson observed, “Two days following the 2020 election she is now criminally indicting Trump for questioning, Fani Willis directly calls the election a “mess” … This meme was posted on her Facebook— seemingly agreeing with Trump on the poor election procedures in 2020.”
Conservative commentator Collin Rugg also revealed that there were posts by the DA where “she told her followers she was ‘scared’ that they ‘messed up’ the election.”
“Days later on November 7th, Willis released multiple posts explaining how proud she was that Kamala Harris was the next vice president. Does anyone actually believe this woman has the ability to enforce the law equally and fairly?”

Fani Willis Campaign Director’s Connection to Team Biden and Anti-Trump Tweets Revealed – Locks Social Media Account
Is this a smoking gun proving collusion between the Fulton County prosecutors’ office and the Biden regime?

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says that these meetings are suspicious. “There is no legitimate purpose for a line [DOJ] guy to be meeting with the White House except if it’s coordinated by the highest levels,” he told the Post. Giuliani was formerly a top federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York.

If only Harrison Floyd’s first name were George. If only he’d been a convicted felon who passed a counterfeit bill, filled himself with illegal drugs, and resisted arrest If that were the case, he’d have had millions of dollars flowing to him from Hollywood and Democrat politicians, and he’d have been a media hero. However, Harrison Floyd isn’t a thug of color. Instead, he’s a retired Marine vet, living with his family and getting by on his pension. And he’s also a black Trump supporter, which is why he’s rotting in a Fulton County jail.
One of the important things to remember about all this Democrat criminal lawfare against anyone who dared support Donald Trump is that it’s intended to destroy them economically. A great lawyer can cost close to $1,000 per hour (although, if he’s decent, he’ll hand the work to young lawyers and paralegals who will cost $300-$400 an hour). A good lawyer will cost about $400 an hour. A mediocre lawyer will cost about $250 per hour.
What this means for a client is that even a single court appearance on a simple matter (preparing documents, travel time, time spent in the courtroom) can result in a $1,000 to $4,000 bill. On a single complicated motion, you’re looking at $25,000 to $100,000 in legal fees. (Maybe more; I haven’t worked on a big case in about 15 years.)
If you’re rich, you can probably absorb this for years. If you’re middle-class, you can absorb this for months before your savings are exhausted, and you are no longer middle-class. And if you’re poor, you can’t afford this at all. Moreover, the public interest lawyers who line up to represent the George Floyds of this world tend to be leftists. They’re not going to volunteer their services for someone who dared to support Trump.
One of those people who dared to support Trump is Harrison Floyd. He was the director of Black Voices for Trump, which is the scariest organization in America if you’re a Democrat. That’s because, while blacks thrived economically under Trump, Biden has been a disaster for them. His inflation has drained the middle class and left the poor even poorer—and that means that blacks have seen whatever wealth they accrued during the Trump years vanish. If a leading motivation for voting is the economy, blacks have had the Biden economy pounding them into the ground.
Fulton County DA Fani Willis isn’t the only one afraid of Floyd. Jack Smith is, too, which is why Floyd was one of those in the crosshairs of Jack Smith’s January 6 investigation. In that case, the FBI claimed that he “yelled at, pushed and struck an agent who was serving a subpoena at his Maryland home…” Floyd was charged with assaulting an FBI agent. Let me act the role of a Fox News debate moderator: Raise your hand if you trust the FBI’s version of events.
Thanks to his service in the Marine Corps, Floyd is disabled, so he and his family are dependent on his pension. And while Biden’s illegal aliens are getting floods of taxpayer money thrown at them, the same is not true for disabled veterans. What this means is that Floyd was unable to hire a lawyer to represent him when Fani Willis issued her indictments. He did, however, fly to Atlanta, where he turned himself in. Turning oneself in is not the hallmark of a flight risk.
Nevertheless, looking at a disabled former Marine who paid the airfare to turn himself in but is unable to afford a lawyer, Judge Emily Richardson* did what judges do to Trump supporters, especially black ones—she reamed him:
Floyd represented himself and was the only one of the case’s 19 defendants not to organize a bond agreement with state prosecutors before turning himself in.
He told Judge Emily Richardson that legal counsel was too expensive, costing between $40,000 and $100,000.
“I can’t put my family in that kind of debt,” he said.
Richardson cited the open case as a reason to remand him to jail, and called him a flight risk. She said the final determination on whether he will receive bail is up to the judge who will handle his trial.
“I do find that based on the open charge against you there are grounds for bond to be denied at this point,” Richardson said. “So I’m going to go ahead and find that you are at risk to commit additional felonies and a potential risk to flee the jurisdiction.”
Fortunately, Trump supporters have Floyd’s back. They learned that legal counsel has stepped forward to defend Floyd and created a GiveSendGo to help with his legal fees. Within 24 hours, that fund had met the original $100,000 goal. Now, the fund has raised the goal to $200,000. This isn’t greed. Given the Democrat goal of breaking people economically with lawfare, in a case of this magnitude, the money can easily be gone in two months.
I’ve donated my mite, and I feel quite good about having done so. What’s happening to the defendants—a former president, along with his lawyers and his supporters—should shock the conscience of every American. Their lives are being destroyed for daring to question an election, something that’s a time-honored Democrat pastime and, importantly, that’s a hallmark of a free country. We all need to step up and make our voices heard…and money talks.
*I’m aware that Judge Richardson was appointed by former Republican governor Nathan Deal. As we’ve seen, though, the Republican political class in Georgia hates Trump. Sundance explains what’s going on there. I do not have evidence that Judge Richardson is a part of this political class or that she shares its values, but it would explain her thinking. Additionally, she was a long-time prosecutor, which may be enough to explain her decision to accept the prosecution’s view of the matter.

“The Hood Is Waking Up!” – Blacks Cheer Trump After Arrest – Trump Support from Black Community Climbs to 20% in Latest Poll
Saturday, August 26, 2023

Despite years of Biden family and media disinformation, we are finally learning that President Joe Biden really did fire Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin for looking into state corruption involving the oil company Burisma and Hunter Biden — and ultimately Joe Biden himself.
As vice president, Biden, in his own words, bragged that he had threatened to cancel the deliverance of American foreign aid to Ukraine unless Shokin was dismissed.
So what is Congress to do now — un-impeach and exonerate an innocent impeached Donald Trump, and instead impeach a guilty Biden for essentially the same allegations?
After all, the Left redefined the impeachment bar in 2019 as leveraging foreign aid to Ukraine to benefit one’s political career.
And that is exactly what Joe Biden did to ensure his son could continue to raise millions for the Biden family with foreign governments, while being shielded from political consequences.
An impeached Trump also was accused of using the power of government to go after his likely 2020 presidential rival by suggesting that Joe Biden and his family were corrupt, and should be investigated by Ukrainian officials for fraud and bribery.
Despite Joe Biden’s denials, Trump was right: there was plenty of evidence to link Ukrainian unwarranted payoffs going into Biden family coffers.
So Trump in 2019 had good reasons to ensure that none of the Bidens were still burrowed deeply into the Ukrainian payoff machine.
In contrast, Biden had far less grounds to unleash the full powers of government against his probable 2024 rival ex-president Trump.
Special Prosecutor Jack Smith is not charging Trump with bribery of the Biden sort. He does not allege that Trump gave special foreign policy preferences for those foreigners who paid his family for such services.
Instead, Smith argues that Trump unlawfully took out classified presidential papers — although Joe Biden did nearly the same.
Biden kept quiet about his vast removal of classified documents for over a decade. Not until Trump was being investigated did Biden suddenly notify the government of his illegal removals.
In contrast, a combative and boisterous Trump fought openly and constantly with federal archivists over which of his papers at his Mar-a-Lago estate were truly classified.
Prosecutorial leaks floated all sorts of unproven nefarious agendas that had prompted Trump’s disputes over his presidential papers.
But no one to this day has seriously asked why senator and then Vice President Biden secretly and weirdly removed and kept such sensitive material for years.
Recent reports allege that Hunter Biden may have been treated with kid gloves by prosecutors, partly because Hunter’s lawyers had threatened otherwise to call Joe Biden to the stand as a favorable witness.
Government prosecutors under pressure from the White House apparently balked at the nightmare of a befuddled president of the United States testifying under oath about the supposed innocence of the very guilty Hunter Biden.
In truth, the former drug addict Hunter has played lots of such strange games with his own family.
In his laptop communications, Hunter whined that no one in the family appreciated his hard work at family grifting.
He sounded petulant that his father forced him to fork over half his income to the Joe and Jill Biden household.
At time of universal scrutiny of Hunter, the last thing any sane first son might do would be to hawk his own childish paintings at exorbitant prices to those wishing to buy influence with his father the president.
In effect, Hunter was almost daring the White House to stop his blatant grifting artistry.
Instead, the Bidens moved Hunter into the White House, apparently to keep him under closer watch.
Hunter is still out of control. He could take the family down with him unless President Biden continues to shield him from prosecution.
Ironically, the double standard used by Biden and the media to hound Trump has only raised new questions of fairness.
Why had the Biden family — with its far greater legal exposure — never faced such serial indictments?
A Republican House of Representatives had ended prior Democratic protection given to the Bidens.
And the Ukraine war has again turned attention to the Biden-Burisma connection and Hunter’s shaking down of Ukrainian officials.
Finally, Joe Biden can no longer work a full day. He mutters. He stumbles. He serially lies.
He hijacks solemn occasions commemorating national tragedies by trying to one up the grieving with his own self-absorbed stories — most of them irrelevant and narcissistic half-truths.
If a cognitively and criminally challenged Biden cannot finish his term, we will finally learn the full story of 15 years of Biden family corruption.
The Bidens will lose the only impediment — Joe Biden’s political machinations — left in the way of an honest, full-blown felony investigation into what is likely the most corrupt presidential family in American history.
