Former President Trump issued a series of social media messages on Monday, criticizing investigators and witnesses involved in a Georgia inquiry. The grand jury in Fulton County is presently reviewing evidence about attempts by Trump and his allies to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.
On Truth Social, Trump posted numerous times on Monday morning, each time expressing outrage over the investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. The posts, primarily written in all capital letters, arrive at a time when charges could be announced as early as this week.
In one of his posts, Trump labeled Willis a “phony” and stated she is eager to indict him on the absurd charges of tampering with the 2020 presidential election. “No, I didn’t tamper with the election!” he vehemently proclaimed in all caps.
In another all-caps post, Trump called for someone to inform the Fulton County grand jury of his innocence, saying those responsible for tampering with the election were the same ones who rigged it. He also criticized Willis for her handling of crime in Atlanta.
It is essential to note that no proof was found of any rigging in the Georgia 2020 election. The vote has been recounted and verified, and various fraud claims have been debunked or dismissed.
Furthermore, Trump is known to have requested Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to find the required votes to surpass President Biden in Georgia after the 2020 election.
Trump also took to social media to react to the news that former Georgia Lt. Gov. Jeff Duncan (R) may testify before the grand jury this week. He criticized Duncan for his stance on the election and referred to him as a “loser” for his refusal to support Trump’s claims of election fraud.
Duncan, who served a single term as lieutenant governor and chose not to run in 2022, has since joined CNN and has publicly refuted Trump’s allegations of fraud in Georgia.
These attacks on a potential witness in Georgia are particularly notable given a Washington, D.C., judge’s recent warning to Trump against intimidating or influencing witnesses in a separate federal case related to the 2020 election.
Just hours before his series of Georgia-focused posts, Trump also aimed at special counsel Jack Smith and Judge Tanya Chutkan in the D.C. case.
These social media outbursts coincide with Willis’s anticipated presentation of her case to a grand jury against Trump and his associates on Monday and Tuesday. Two witnesses, including Duncan, have been summoned for Tuesday.
CNN’s recent report suggests Willis might pursue over a dozen indictments, focusing on conspiracy and racketeering charges. The inquiry has concentrated on the attempts to influence election officials and a plan to present an alternative group of electors to oppose the state’s voting outcome.
