Dangerous 2020 Election Witch Hunt
Laws like this could be used to intimidate and silence political opponents. We must pray that the truth prevails over politics.
From The Federalist. Politicians and the press have long been lying to the American public about the 2020 election by asserting that former President Donald Trump and his lawyers attempted to overturn the results of the election based on disproven claims of election fraud. Now Fulton County, Georgia’s prosecutor is pushing the same lies, while also seeking to criminalize legitimate legal challenges to violations of the state’s election law.
Yesterday news broke that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis had obtained grand jury subpoenas to question several of Trump’s election lawyers, including Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Jenna Ellis, Cleta Mitchell, and Kenneth Chesebro. The special grand jury convened by Willis also issued subpoenas for South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and attorney and podcast host Jacki Pick Deason….
Willis’ investigation represents a political witch hunt seeking retribution against Trump and his lawyers for challenging the Georgia election results….
Yet in subpoenaing Mitchell, the Fulton County D.A. frames Mitchell’s legal representation of Trump as part of a “coordinated attempt” to “criminally disrupt” the 2020 election results. In other words, the prosecutor is seeking to criminalize legitimate legal challenges.
Ironically, to subpoena Mitchell and Trump’s other lawyers, Willis needed the permission of Brasher — the same judge who delayed proceedings in Trump’s election lawsuit until it was too late to matter.
That Willis used the special grand jury to subpoena several of Trump’s attorneys also confirms the political farce in play because attorney-client privilege will prevent Trump’s lawyers from answering many of the questions likely to be posed. Getting answers, however, is clearly not the goal. Rather, like the Jan. 6 Committee’s show trial taking place on the Hill, the Fulton County prosecutor seeks to shame critics of the 2020 election, and thereby teach Republicans to stay silent in the face of future election irregularities.
By going after the attorneys, as both the local D.A. and the Jan. 6 Committee are doing, Democrats are also ensuring that Republican candidates will have a difficult time finding lawyers willing to launch legitimate election challenges in the future. And, contrary to what the press is telling people, Trump’s claim that there were some 11,800 illegal votes included in Georgia’s final tally proved correct, which is preciously why the Fulton County prosecutor wants to focus on fraud.
The only fraud at play, though, concerns the storyline Willis and the media are feeding the public.
