From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis on Monday said she would announce this summer whether former President Donald Trump and his allies would be charged with crimes related to alleged interference in Georgia’s 2020 election.”
Willis says that the delay in announcing the charges until at least July will allow local law enforcement to be ready for “heightened security and preparedness” because she predicted her announcement “may provoke a significant public reaction.”
There is only one name that will provoke the kind of public reaction that needs three months to prepare for. In letters to Fulton Sheriff Patrick Labat, Darin Schierbaum, Atlanta’s chief of police, and Matthew Kallmyer, director of the Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency, she wrote,
“Please accept this correspondence as notice to allow you sufficient time to prepare the Sheriff’s Office and coordinate with local, state and federal agencies to ensure that our law enforcement community is ready to protect the public.”
“We have seen in recent years that some may go outside of public expressions of opinion that are protected by the First Amendment to engage in acts of violence that will endanger the safety of those we are sworn to protect. As leaders, it is incumbent upon us to prepare.”
There are stormy seas ahead. What will the MAGAs do when Willis indicts Trump for trying to overthrow American democracy?
