Georgia DA Gets Catastrophic News Hours After Indicting Trump:
Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County who is currently involved in the prosecution of former President Donald Trump and other others, received unfortunate news on Tuesday from a former federal prosecutor.
According to Jennifer Rodgers, a former federal prosecutor, during her appearance on CNN on Tuesday, it is unlikely that Willis will get her desired outcome following the indictment. The District Attorney has established a lofty objective of commencing trial proceedings against the former president and 18 co-defendants within a span of six months.
Addressing the former prosecutor, CNN anchor Sara Sidner said, “Back in 2022 just last year, she brought a case against a rapper and several others. What does that tell you about the timing of this case and how quickly or slowly it might be able to come to trial?”
“Fani Willis has a lot of experience with RICO throughout her prosecutorial career, so she knows what she’s doing in this regard. But going back to the Young Thug case, it’s still in jury selection. I mean months and months just in jury selection,” she said.
“Picking a jury for the former president and these other high-ranking former officials and lawyers and so on is going to be even more complicated than picking a jury for the Young Thung RICO case so to me that just underscores again that six months is an unrealistic goal to try this thing,” she said.
Before the indictment, Judge Robert McBurney of Fulton County Superior Court addressed significant logistical matters during a typical Monday morning session at the local courthouse, where he presided over the grand jury hearings.
According to McBurney, it is customary for a grand jury to present an indictment in the afternoon, during which filming and photography are permitted. This statement was made to a group of media and members of the public who were present in his courtroom before to the commencement of motions in a murder case related to a nightclub shooting.
As was previously reported, the Georgia judge over the Trump indictment has decided that “at least part” of the trial “may be televised.”
This court appearance for Trump may be unlike any others, due to laws in Georgia regarding cameras in the courtroom. Under Georgia law, judges can weigh several factors when deciding whether to allow cameras, including the consent of the parties involved, concerns over the safety of those participating in proceedings, and the impact on due process.
Trump was indicted along with 18 others, including Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and several of Trump’s advisors on charges relating to the 2020 election.
The charges are being called a “racketeering case” with actions by the Trump campaign as they traveled to Georgia during the voting to expose ballot irregularities alleged to have been somehow attempting to “reverse the results” of the election in a “criminal enterprise,” The NY Times claims.
Unlike federal or Manhattan courts, where the former president appeared for his three previous arraignments, Georgia law requires that cameras be allowed into judicial proceedings with a judge’s approval. The presiding judge has the final say on camera access. Media organizations are required to file a formal request, known as Rule 22, for the judge’s consideration. The filing is often considered more of a formality, as the requests are almost always granted.
So, in Georgia, if Trump is brought into a Georgia courtroom the proceedings are likely to be broadcast live on TV, and potentially that the proceedings in entirety may be broadcast, which would be a first.

· "The special counsel shall be selected from outside the United States government." — Code of Federal Regulations, Title 28, Chapter VI, § 600.3(c). [Emphasis added]

· [I]t is within the powers of Congress to summon Garland and ask him to explain why he believes he is justified in ignoring a federal regulation that seems to limit his authority to appoint special counsels.
When Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that he was appointing David Weiss as special counsel, he failed to mention § 600.3(c) of the Code of Federal Regulations entitled "Qualifications of the Special Counsel." These qualifications include the following: "The special counsel shall be selected from outside the United States government." (Emphasis added)
This requirement is the law. The regulations were authorized by Congress under 5 U.S.C. 301, 509, 510, 515-519. The attorney general is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. It is certainly expected that he would obey the law in its entirety.
If he feels that somehow there is an applicable exception to this requirement, he is obliged to explain why. Particularly when the special counsel is appointed to investigate the son of the incumbent president, who appointed Garland, every T should be crossed and every I should be dotted. Here we have what appears to be a clear rule using the word "shall" rather than a more permissive word such as "may." The regulation on its face seems mandatory, and not advisory. If it is not, why not?
There are good reasons for this requirement. Special counsel is supposed to be independent of the current government, not an employee who serves as U.S. Attorney for Delaware and can be fired from that job by the president. He is supposed to look at the evidence through the eyes of an outsider.
Garland may well say that he had little choice but to pick David Weiss, because Weiss has been conducting this investigation for five years. But that sounds like a good reason for not appointing the man who already agreed to make what many regard as a sweetheart deal, limited to minor tax and gun violations. Whether consciously or unconsciously, Weiss is likely to want to defend that highly criticized decision – a decision that was (as I predicted) rejected by the judge because of its ambiguity.
As to the five years of investigation, they were conducted not by Weiss himself but by his underlings, who could be kept on if a new special counsel were to be appointed. But even if there were persuasive reasons for naming Weiss as special counsel, Garland had an obligation to explain his apparent violation of a binding regulation. He did not do so at his press briefing. He can still do so now. And he should.
Garland's defenders argue that he may have merely skirted, rather than violated, the law because the appointment was made under his general authority and not expressly under the relevant regulations. This is a stretch especially since he relied on those very regulations to give the special counsel the powers authorized by the regulations. In any event , we rightly expect our attorneys general to comply with both the letter and spirit of the law and not to cut sharp corners.
Democrats frequently say that no one is above the law. Yet they have been silent about Garland apparently placing himself above the law in choosing Weiss in violation of governing legal regulations.
Under our constitutional system of checks and balances, it is within the powers of Congress to summon Garland and ask him to explain why he believes he is justified in ignoring a federal regulation that seems to limit his authority to appoint special counsels. He was surely aware of the regulation and of its apparently binding application. Maybe his explanation will be acceptable. Maybe he will admit he was wrong. Maybe he will decline to respond. The public is entitled to hear him and judge for themselves.
His decision to ignore the regulation was surprising. Many, including this author, have high regard for Garland as a "by the book," politically neutral and fair-minded attorney general. Many of us strongly supported his nomination to the Supreme Court and condemned the refusal of the then-Republican majority of the Senate even to give a hearing based on the lame excuse that it was early in the presidential election year. (The Republicans then rushed Justice Amy Coney Barrett through just weeks before the election). But this decision, along with some others, has been extremely disappointing.
With few exceptions, attorneys general generally become more partisan after they are appointed. This should be expected because they are cabinet members who are supposed to be loyal to the administration they are serving. But they are also supposed to be entirely nonpartisan in conducting criminal investigations and filing charges. It is difficult if not impossible to perform this schizophrenic role.
The ultimate solution is to divide the Justice Department into two separate units: one political , whose incumbent serves at the pleasure of the president; the other a non-partisan prosecutor, who cannot be fired except with consent of Congress. If this were done, perhaps there would be less need for special counsel.

Fulton County Georgia, DA - Deflects Blame for How Indictment Against Trump Was Leaked:
Fani Willis, Fulton County District Attorney deflected questions, when asked how a draft of the indictment was leaked Monday, prior to the grand jury voting to charge former President Trump, and 18 others. Apparently, a document describing indictments appeared briefly online before being removed.
On Monday afternoon, the Fulton County Court’s website, posted a document listing the same charges, included in the indictment released late Monday night. The charges included-
· Violating the Georgia RICO Act (the Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations Act)
· Solicitation of Violation of Oath by a Public Officer
· Conspiracy to Commit False Statements and Writings
· Conspiracy to Commit Impersonating a Public Officer
· Conspiracy to Commit Forgery in the First Degree
· Filing False Documents
· Forgery in the First Degree
During a news conference, Reuters first reported on the document, before the Fulton County Court quickly removed it from the website. Fani Willis, Fulton County Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney said of the matter, ‘I can’t tell you anything’. In a statement, the Fulton County Court reportedly said-
"The Office of the Fulton County Clerk or Superior and Magistrate Courts has learned of a fictitious document that has been circulated online and reported by various media outlets to The Fulton County Special Purpose Grand Jury," [the court said in a statement Monday afternoon.]
"While there have been no documents filed today regarding such, all members of the media should be reminded that documents that do not bear an official case number, filing date, and the name of The Clerk of Courts, in concert, are not considered official filings and should not be treated as such."
-Fulton County Court Statement
Trump, was charged - as well as others, out of the years-long investigation. Those additionally indicted, were: former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, attorneys Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Kenneth Chesebro, Jeff Clark, John Eastman, and others.
Obviously, America is seeing the rule of law thrown away for partisan, political purposes. Trump attorneys Drew Findling and Jennifer Little slammed the Fulton County District Attorney's office on Monday afternoon saying-
"The Fulton County District Attorney's Office has once again shown that they have no respect for the integrity of the grand jury process," …"This was not a simple administrative mistake. A proposed indictment should only be in the hands of the District Attorney's Office, yet it somehow made its way to the clerk's office and was assigned a case number and a judge before the grand jury even deliberated." adding…
"This is emblematic of the pervasive and glaring constitutional violations which have plagued this case from its very inception."
-Trump attorneys Drew Findling and Jennifer Little
Willis held a press conference to explain the charges, after the grand jury actually deliberated, voted and handed up the indictment. When asked by reporters for an explanation of the leak, Willis totally declined to comment, deflecting, she replied-
"No, I can't tell you anything about what you refer to,"… "What I can tell you is that we had a grand jury here in Fulton County. They deliberated till almost 8:00, if not right after 8:00, an indictment was returned. It was true billed. And you now have an indictment." adding…"I am not an expert on clerks duties or even administrative duties. I wouldn't know how to work that system. And so I'm not going to speculate. Next question."
-Fani Willis, Fulton County District Attorney
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.”
[Marcus Tullius Cicero]
Critics Call for Skittles Boycott Over 'Black Trans Lives Matter' Packaging:
Skittles candy, known for its “Taste the rainbow” slogan, is facing backlash from consumers due to its new packaging featuring the phrase “Black Trans Lives Matter.” This move has prompted some consumers to call for a boycott, citing the company’s perceived “woke” approach to supporting the LGBTQ community.
Skittles, a product under the Wrigley Company division of Mars, Inc., has launched a “SKITTLES Pride” campaign on its website, stating, “We’ve given up our rainbow so that the LGBTQ+ community can share theirs.” The campaign showcases designs from five artists on Skittles Pride Packs, each highlighting a unique story within the LGBTQ+ community.
The new candy wrappers, created in collaboration with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, celebrate pride and diversity.
One design features a sun and moon walking on a rainbow while holding hands, another showcases the word “PRIDE” in multiple colors along with LGBTQ+ labels, and one causing concern displays kids on skateboards with phrases like “skate & live,” “joy is resistance,” and “black trans lives matter.”
