There were a gazillion charges failed against President Trump and 18 of his lawyers, friends and compatriots on Monday night. Yet somehow, Georgia District Attorney Fani “Trap House” Willis knew exactly how the grand jury was going to vote on all the charges several hours earlier in the day.
Just like with everything else in the world of the Trump Double Standard, you are being asked to play make-believe like a toddler and just go along with the ever-changing fairytale about this.
The story behind the leak of the indictments six hours before the grand jury voted on the charges has now changed three times in less than 48 hours.
Early Monday afternoon, the charging documents against Trump and his 18 co-defendants were posted on the Fulton County courts website. Which was weird, since everyone knew that the grand jury had not voted on the charges yet.
When this obvious miscarriage of justice was pointed out on social media, the Fulton County Clerk of Courts office took the document off of the website. They then issued a clumsy public statement claiming that the document was “fictitious.” That was a lie.
That was Story #1 that you were asked to believe. When the real charging documents were posted later that night, they were a word-for-word copy of the “fictitious” charging documents earlier in the day. It even had a case number on it, and the name of the judge that the case is assigned to.
The judge that oversees grand jury proceedings is NEVER the same judge who hears a case if it goes to trial. The only way that the case could be pre-assigned a number and a judge is if the District Attorney’s office knows that the process has been rigged.
On Tuesday, Story #2 emerged in Atlanta, but very few people noticed because the national media largely ignored it. Fulton County Clerk Ché Alexander told WSB-TV in Atlanta that the charging documents were real. When she uploaded the VERY REAL charging documents that were drafted before the grand jury voted, she says she hit “Send” instead of “Save” in the Clerk of Courts computer system, so the VERY REAL charging docs ended up online.
“I am human,” Alexander told WSB-TV. “And that’s how the mishap happened.”
Alexander then proceeded to throw her employees under the bus, by claiming that her team had chosen the word “fictitious” poorly when issuing Story #1 on Monday.
Just to be clear: Fulton County Clerk Ché Alexander confirmed on Tuesday that the charging documents were real.
But, oh wait! Everything changed again on Wednesday morning, when Story #3 emerged. Now the Fulton County Clerk of Courts office is back to claiming that the document was “fictitious.” In a statement released Wednesday, the Clerk’s office wrote:
“In anticipation of issues that arise with entering a potentially large indictment, Alexander used charges that pre-exist in Odyssey [Georgia’s online court documentation system] to test the system and conduct a trial run. Unfortunately, the sample working document led to the docketing of what appeared to be an indictment, but which was, in fact, only a fictitious docket sheet.”
“Charges that pre-exist?” WTF is that?! A defendant is not charged until they are officially charged! There is no such thing as “charges that pre-exist.”
When a grand jury hears the evidence in a potential case, they vote on every single count against every single suspect in the case. If they believe the prosecution has enough evidence to bring the case to trial (not that the defendant is guilty), the grand jury votes and then one of two things happen.
If they return a “true bill,” they’re saying there’s enough evidence on one count. If they return a “no bill” on a specific count, that charge must be dropped against the defendant immediately.
It’s not unusual at all for grand juries to return one or two “no bills,” especially in a massive case with a gazillion counts and 19 defendants like this one. We know that this grand jury returned zero “no bills,” because the final, unchanged document was posted online hours before the grand jury even voted.
The only possible legal explanation for this is that the grand jury process was rigged.
