With President Trump now out of office, there are a number of local law enforcement agencies who are looking to get a piece of he and his cohorts for whatever alleged improprieties they’ve engaged in.
Of course, a great deal of this is simple political blustering, with local DA’s and prosecutors looking to make a name for themselves by striking while the iron is hot.
In Georgia, one high-powered lawyer has now announced that they will be taking a closer look at Rudy Giuliani, the President’s former, (or maybe still), personal attorney.
A newly elected district attorney in Georgia is looking into potential racketeering charges against former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, for his repeated false claims of election fraud, The New York Times reported.
Fani Willis, the district attorney in Fulton County, said the racketeering charge could be applied to anyone who makes overt acts using a legal entity for an illegal purpose. In this case, it would apply because the former president and his allies pressured Georgia officials to change the election outcome.
The investigation has been in the works for a few weeks at least.
Earlier this month, Willis sent a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Gov. Brian Kemp, Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, and Attorney General Chris Carr, to ask them to retain all sensitive materials relating to a phone call Trump made to Raffensperger in which he asked him to find enough votes to make him the winner of the state.
Former President Trump is also the subject of a probe in the Peach State, with investigators in that case focusing on the then-Commander in Chief’s infamous phone call to Raffensberger in which he asked the GA official to help “find” votes.
