(GoRealNewsNow.com) – HAPPENING NOW: The Democrat Georgia DA, who has indicted Donald Trump with criminal charges that he wanted to overturn the state’s 2020 presidential election result, has asked the court to set the trial date for March 4, eight months before the 2024 election.
Earlier this week, a Georgia grand jury acting at the behest of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis slapped Trump and 18 others with racketeering and conspiracy charges for allegedly attempting to subvert the last presidential election in the state.
That became the fourth Democrat-led indictment against the 45th president of the United States, after the two federal indictments by the Biden Justice Department and the charges raised by another Democrat DA, Manhattan’s Alvin Bragg.
In a new court filing, Willis also proposed that Trump and his co-defendants, which include former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, be arraigned during the week of September 5 and that they would be informed about the exact date at least five days in advance.
The Democrat DA also declared that the requested dates wouldn’t conflict with Trump’s other court trials.
“In light of Defendant Donald John Trump’s other criminal and civil matters pending in the courts of our sister sovereigns, the State of Georgia proposes certain deadlines that do not conflict with these other courts’ already-scheduled hearings and trial dates,” she wrote, as cited by The Hill. A judge will determine the start date of the Fulton County trial.
The trial in Trump’s Manhattan case is set for March 25, 2024, while the federal lawsuit in Florida over his alleged mishandling of classified documents is scheduled for May 20, 2024.
No date has been set yet for the federal trial in Washington, DC, for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 election. However, the Biden DOJ Special Counsel, Jack Smith, has requested January 2.
On Monday evening, as she announced the new anti-Trump indictment, Willis said she would ask for a trial beginning date within the following six months.
“We do want to move this case along,” she said.
In an outrageous development earlier the same day, hours before the grand jury’s decision, the website of the Fulton County courthouse published an indictment document with the exact severe charges against Trump –– which was deleted shortly after that. Willis played dumb in her answer.
“I am not an expert on clerks, duties, or even administrative duties. I wouldn’t know how to work that system so I’m not gonna speculate,” the DA declared.
