Racketeering expert joins Georgia’s probe of Trump phone call: Report


Daily Beast: Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County in Georgia, has hired a racketeering specialist to join her probe of former President Trump’s attempts to pressure election officials, Reuters reports.

The investigation, which started a month ago, is looking into whether Trump broke the law when he called the Georgia Secretary of State on Jan. 2 and asked him to “find” more Trump votes. Atlanta lawyer John Floyd worked with Willis previously on a 2015 racketeering case in which 11 teachers and school officials were convicted of lying about test scores.

The move indicates that investigators are considering hitting Trump with racketeering charges if they conclude that there was a concerted effort to coerce officials into changing election results, Reuters reports.

  1. If Puerto Rica could get some representation, the shakedown Trump pulled on our ’51st state’ is legendary mob behavior. The cornerstone hospital has not even been built. nothing is ‘back better’. Trump put the governor on the spot with no warning actually quite the opposite and pressed him impromptu in front of the media on the Trump response to the hurricane and Their false ‘great relationship’. People in the Republican party do not hold Trump corrupt and at fault for anything and until his followers can see him as the fraud and criminal that he is no justice is ever possible.
