Missteps or Malice? Trump Attorneys Expose Fulton County DA’s Office Mishandling


In a recent turn of events, attorneys representing former President Donald Trump have raised serious concerns about a questionable document that appeared online. This document seemed to detail charges against Trump, even before the grand jury assigned to contemplate his indictment over the 2020 election had concluded its sessions.

Screenshots of the since-removed document from a Georgia court website exhibited what seemed to be a damning 13 charges against the former President. These included hefty felony conspiracy allegations and a possible violation of Georgia’s RICO statute.

Trump’s attorneys, Drew Findling and Jennifer Little were swift to voice their concerns. Their joint statement underscored their belief that the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office had once again demonstrated a lack of reverence for the sanctity of the grand jury system. “This was not a simple administrative mistake,” the statement emphatically stressed.

The gravity of the situation is highlighted by the fact that a potential indictment should remain exclusively within the District Attorney’s Office’s purview. However, the contentious document had already been assigned a judge and case number, even though the grand jury had not reached a verdict. The attorneys characterized this as a glaring indication of the constitutional oversights which have marred this case from the start.

President Trump, understandably ruffled, pointed out in a fundraising email, “The Grand Jury testimony has not even FINISHED — but it’s clear the District Attorney has already decided how this case will end.” He labeled the entire ordeal as a “DISGRACE.”

However, in an interesting turn, the Office of the Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts dismissed the document as fraudulent. They warned the media against giving credence to any document that didn’t bear the official trappings like a case number, filing date, and the Clerk of Courts’ name.

Ironically, the Associated Press was quick to note that the controversial document did indeed carry a case number.

Dated Aug. 14, the document not only mentioned Fulton County Judge Rachelle Carnesale but also labeled the status as “open.” It elaborately cited Donald John Trump being accused of multiple alleged felony crimes and one “serious felony.” The list of charges even went on to specify accusations like the “Violation Of The Georgia RICO Act” and the “Solicitation of Violation of Oath by Public Officer.”

All in all, this mishandling, intentional or not, serves as a cautionary tale of how due processes can sometimes be overshadowed by hasty actions, which are not just legally questionable but also compromise the fairness and integrity our justice system promises. It’s a stark reminder of the importance of upholding the rule of law and the equal treatment of all citizens, irrespective of their political stature.
