House Republicans Demand Fulton County DA Explain ‘Politically Motivated’ Trump Indictment

House Republicans Demand Fulton County DA Explain ‘Politically Motivated’ Trump Indictment

“Your indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated.”

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan demanded Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis explain the indictments against President Donald Trump and 18 other people.

“Your indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated,” wrote Jordan.

Trump is expected to surrender today. Authorities said they would fingerprint him and take a mugshot as they did with those who had already surrendered.

First off, before I get into the meat and potatoes of the letter, I wonder how many people will scream that Jordan is threatening Willis because of a valid observation:

Third, because Congress appropriates federal funds that are distributed to local law enforcement agencies, it has an interest in overseeing how the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has used such funds, including whether it has expended any federal dollars on this investigation. As a federal court recently explained, “[t]here can be no doubt that Congress may permissibly investigate the use of federal funds, particularly where the result of the investigation might prompt Congress to pass legislation changing how such funds are appropriated or may be spent.”

In other words, don’t waste money and time on frivolous investigations.

Jordan pointed out the many actions that caused the committee to question the motivation behind the indictments:

Turning first to the question of motivation, it is noteworthy that just four days before this indictment, you launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted your investigation into President Trump. Additionally, the forewoman of the special grand jury you convened to investigate President Trump earlier this year bragged during an unusual media tour about her excitement at the prospect of subpoenaing President Trump and getting to swear him in. Last week, the Fulton County Superior Court’s Clerk publicly released a list of criminal charges against President Trump reportedly hours before the vote of the grand jury. A Fulton County court has disqualified you from targeting current Georgia Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones as part of your probe on the grounds that you actively supported and held fundraising events for his Democratic opponent. And unlike officials in other jurisdictions, Fulton County officials “have suggested [they] will process [the former President] as [a] typical criminal defendant[], requiring mug shots and possibly even cash bond.”

The timing of the indictment is also suspicious:

The timing of this prosecution reinforces concerns about your motivation. In February 2021, news outlets reported that you directed your office to open an investigation into President Trump. Indeed, sometime on or around February 11, 2021, your office purportedly sent a letter to several Republican officials in Georgia, requesting that they preserve documents relating to a “matter . . . of high priority” that your office was investigating. Yet, you did not bring charges until two-and-a-half years later, at a time when the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is in full swing. Moreover, you have requested that the trial in this matter begin on March 4, 2024, the day before Super Tuesday and eight days before the Georgia presidential primary. It is therefore unsurprising many have speculated that this indictment and prosecution are designed to interfere with the 2024 presidential election.

Jordan also told Willis the indictment and prosecution “appears to be an attempt to use state criminal law to regulate the conduct of federal officers acting in their official capacities.” He provided two examples.

Count 1 is “violation of the Georgia RICO ACT,” which Jordan said “seeks to criminalize under Georgia law the White House Chief of Staff arranging meetings and phone calls for the President.”

Count 22 is a “criminal attempt to commit false statements and writings.” Jordan told Willis that this count “seeks to criminalize under Georgia law internal deliberations within DOJ, including a meeting where a former DOJ official requested formal authorization from his superiors to take an official act.”

Jordan mentioned that other parts of the indictment have the Republicans wondering if Willis wants to “criminalize under Georgia law certain speech of federal officers, including the President.” We all know criminalizing speech violates the First Amendment.

It’s unfortunate that Jordan has to give Willis, a district attorney, a basic civic lesson.

“When states rely on acts like these—apparently taken in connection with official duties— to criminally prosecute federal officers, it raises serious concerns under the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution and poses a threat to the operations of the federal government,” continued Jordan. “The threat of future state prosecution for official acts may dissuade federal officers from effectively performing their official duties and responsibilities.”

You can find the Supremacy Clause in the Constitution in Article VI, Paragraph 2. The clause “prohibits states from interfering with the federal government’s exercise of its constitutional powers, and from assuming any functions that are exclusively entrusted to the federal government.”

First of all, federal law allows “any federal officer” to move a state prosecution to a federal court. What kind of precedent would this case set? Jordan thinks any future prosecution could “dissuade federal officers from effectively performing their official duties and responsibilities.”

Former presidents have Secret Service protection along with certain funding. Therefore, Congress can probe and investigate if any President is facing “politically motivated state investigations and prosecutions.” Jordan expressed worry that if a president thinks he could face these prosecutions, it “could impact the policies they choose to pursue while in office.”

Jordan also justified the investigation because supposedly Willis’s office worked with DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Jordan demanded:

1. All documents and communications referring or relating to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office’s receipt and use of federal funds;

2. All documents and communications between or among the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and DOJ and its components, including but not limited to the Office of Special Counsel Jack Smith, referring or relating to your office’s investigation of President Donald Trump or any of the other eighteen individuals against whom charges were brought in the indictment discussed above; and

3. All documents and communications between the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and any federal Executive Branch officials regarding your office’s investigation of President Donald Trump or any of the other eighteen individuals against whom charges were brought in the indictment discussed above.

Another “investigation “

    IKR? Another letter?. Show of hands, who thinks it will do anything?
    We are burned out on Jordan, and letters and no action, well I am.

      Don’t tell Archer and Milhouse. They get sand in their vagina because they believe Congress can’t do anything about these frivolous actions.

        inspectorudy in reply to AF_Chief_Master_Sgt. | August 25, 2023 at 10:43 am

        What power does the House have that they can use against a state DA? If you are going to be insulting at least supply the facts that make you so.

          Maz2331 in reply to inspectorudy. | August 25, 2023 at 3:14 pm

          Step 1 is the letter. She will ignore it. Step 2 is a subpoena. That can’t be so easily ignored, as it carries contempt charges. And there is no need for contempt to go to DOJ – if the house Republicans are sufficiently motivated to stick together, they can themselves use inherent contempt power to order her jailed until the end of the current Congress in January 2024. Oh, and there is no pardon power of judicial review permitted of such an action either.

          They usually just like to refer cases to DOJ to die, but this time might just be different enough.

      Milhouse in reply to amwick. | August 24, 2023 at 11:12 pm

      What the hell do you imagine he can do about it, other than investigate? Go on, tell us, what you would do if you were in his position, and by what authority you imagine you could do it.

        amwick in reply to Milhouse. | August 24, 2023 at 11:44 pm

        I have seen this repeated ad nauseam from Jim and other Congressional reps. From your oh so polite question, I guess there is nothing Congress can do, other than investigate, then recommend criminal charges to a corrupt DOJ. That is the whole point. What is the legal remedy when the legal system is broken? Rhetorical question.

          inspectorudy in reply to amwick. | August 25, 2023 at 10:47 am

          When the DoJ and the FBI are both compromised, there is nothing the House can do or propose except a criminal referral. Of course, we know it will go nowhere but any info about their criminal acts can help change the direction of the next election.

    Gosport in reply to gonzotx. | August 24, 2023 at 6:14 pm

    Umm, OK. And then what?

    And what took so long to ask?

    What the hell have you ever done yourself, other than just sitting on your old fat ass every day and bitch and moan in the comments section here about everyone you think isn’t doing enough. So, what the hell are YOU doing? Nothing, as usual. Talk is cheap. If you aren’t willing to do anything other than bitch, then you are just another useless troll wasting air. Crawl back under your rock where you belong.

      We don’t do those things personally because we hire people like Jim Jordan to do that stuff for us and we overpay him massively to do so. In order for the nation to be able to afford to survive we’ve all got to go to work that’s why we pay Representatives

      gonzotx in reply to JR. | August 24, 2023 at 7:44 pm

      Yawn, Oh here we go again

      Not a sitting us senator or congressman

      I do what I can

      What do you do Mr Ewing besides bitching at me?

      Just curious

    herm2416 in reply to gonzotx. | August 24, 2023 at 8:08 pm

    Trey Gowdy 2.0.

Jordan will have better luck Baptizing a cat than getting an explanation from the DA..

The politics is that her constituents like it.

    Sanddog in reply to rhhardin. | August 24, 2023 at 10:32 pm

    It’s not even about that. It’s about her standing in the DNC and future jobs and appointments. The Biden machine looked for someone stupid enough to actually charge the President and dumbass Fani raised her hand.

“Please provide this information as soon as possible but not later than 10:00 a.m. on September 7, 2023.”

What happens on 8 September 2023 when Willis fails to: wholly comply, only partially complies, redacts portions thereof, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

I would word the following:

“Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis shall produce all relevant information related to the House committee inquiry no later than 09:00 a.m., eastern standard time, on September 7, 2023.”

And since Speaker McCarthy is a man of action, not words, he needs to send the House Sergeant at Arms to Fulton County, Georgia to acknowledge receipt of documents or remand Fani Willis to the House Committee …

Better watch out commies! Jim Jordan is gonna write a Letter! He might even write A LETTER!!! Oh my! What will you do? How will you cope with THAT!!!!

Republican… latin for “useless passive organism addicted to being a victim “

Unless they are going to put the DA in jail for contempt…. it’s nothing but HOT…AIR

Prediction: She’ll try to stonewall him. She’ll complain to the press that he’s interfering with her righteous work and go to court to keep him off her back.

If she fails in court, she’ll give him only a portion of what he asks for, and that portion will be heavily redacted. She will do her best to draw things out for years and will mostly succeed.

    Then she will scream…RACISM…like always.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to irv. | August 25, 2023 at 11:16 am

    Prediction: She’ll just give Jimmy the one-finger salute and tell him to eff off, mind his own business and simply refuse to give him any of the requested information.

    To which Jimmy and the rest will do nothing. All talk and show. No action in response. That’s the republican way. Every time.

Jordan can shake his little hands, stomp his little feet and huff and puff all day long, and in the end Fani will tell Jim where he can stick his letter and there is nothing that he will able to do about it

Communists are arresting and finger printing a former POTUS right now and the feckless GOP is still firing off letters. That’ll show em!

No impeachment of any official. No GOP AG arresting democrats. All hat, no cattle. This is not the hill to die on.

    “That’s Not Who We Are (TM)”

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Paddy M. | August 25, 2023 at 11:34 am

    Did you expect anything else? The republicans are all talk, talk, talk, and more talk. They simply lack the balls to take any kind of real action to hold democrats accountable for their illegal acts and actions. This might not be the hill to die on but it makes for good PR fodder to keep the sheeple in line. Just don’t expect much response from Jordan when Willis tells him to eff off. He’ll just drop the whole matter and move on to some other faux outrage of the week. Guaranteed.

Trumpets are unbearably stupid.

What do you all expect him to do? He’s not the AG. He doesn’t have prosecuting power. Stop making up your bullshit fantasies that don’t even come close to reality.

In fact, if Willis is purposely interfering in the 2024 election and it can be proven, would she have any Federal exposure if Republicans were to win in 2024?

    Why basic question on hypotheticals that won’t happen? They’re going to steal 2024 and it’s almost a certainty because they stole 2020 and there were no consequences

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Ironclaw. | August 25, 2023 at 11:46 am

      Why basic question on hypotheticals that won’t happen? They’re going to steal 2024 and it’s almost a certainty because they stole 2020 and there were no consequences

      So why then should we vote at all. According to you the democrat party will just “steal 2024”. So we might as well just stay home and not vote. Again, why bother if the democrats are going to steal the election. If that’s the case then I’m not going to bother going to the poll and casting a vote. The democrats have disenfranchised everyone so it doesn’t matter if I cast a vote or not. They have decided who will be president and that’s all there is to it. So I ain’t gonna bother voting.

      You are part of the effing problem with your gloom & doom prophecy that democrats will “steal 2024”. It’s not called a self-fulfilling prophecy for nothing. If enough people actually believe that nonsense you’re spouting and just don’t cast their vote then they democrats have won the election. Even before it has occurred. So stop. Just stop with this steal the election nonsense. It helps nobody. Nobody at all.

Explain, Explain, Explain…..
No more “inquiring minds want to know” BS! Prosecute, get into the discovery phase, raid their collective homes, boats, cars, airplanes, computers and other electronic devices, storage units, the wife’s drawers! I bet there’s a pile of evidence out there of their crimes.

Can she be charged with stealing white woman’s hair:)? I hear the chemicals cause cancer. I certainly hope so in her case. Hope the bitch reads this. Hey, this may be indictable! Seems everything is, doesn’t it?
