(GoRealNewsNow.com) – BREAKING NEWS NOW: The chief prosecutor in Atlanta is getting ready to formally accuse former President Donald Trump of racketeering, which involves conducting illegal activities related to his attempts to reverse the outcome of the 2020 election in Georgia.
The District Attorney of Fulton County, Fani Willis, is planning to charge Trump, who is now 77, with manipulating witnesses and unlawful computer access, as reported by The Guardian. This could be the fourth formal criminal accusation against the former president this year alone.
After losing the electoral vote to current President Biden, Trump contacted Georgia election officials multiple times over the phone. In a notorious discussion, he asked Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” 11,780 votes, which would have changed the election outcome in Georgia.
Willis has also been investigating the potential involvement of Sidney Powell, Trump’s former attorney, in the alleged illegal access of Dominion Voting Systems machines. These machines are used to transfer election data from Coffee County. People with knowledge of the situation provided this information to the media.
The formal accusation could be presented as early as next month.
When contacted for a comment, a Fulton County DA’s office representative did not respond immediately.
In a letter to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Feb. 10, 2021, which The New York Times managed to obtain, Willis stated that her investigation would consider charges such as “solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”
Emily Kohrs, part of the special grand jury assembled to look into possible interference in the Georgia election, told CNN earlier this year that there was a long list of proposed charges and that a “big name” on the list wouldn’t surprise Americans.
Kohrs spoke about this following a strange series of public appearances after the grand jury suggested several formal accusations in a February report.
Willis brought together another grand jury on July 11 to decide whether to accuse Trump or others involved in the case formally.
Willis’s office has given immunity to at least eight “fake electors” in Georgia who intended to announce Trump as the state’s winner. As per the reports, they were granted immunity in return for their cooperation in the investigation.
This potential accusation against Trump comes as special counsel Jack Smith is reportedly considering a further federal indictment against Trump for his attempts to reverse the 2020 election results in relation to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
In June, Smith had already charged Trump with 37 counts for allegedly keeping classified documents from federal authorities and then lying about it.
Additionally, in April, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg accused Trump on 34 counts of business fraud for allegedly hiding “hush money” payments made to a porn star before the 2016 election.
