The House Judiciary Committee is launching an investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) and the indictment of former President Donald Trump.
In a letter to Willis, Chairman Jim Jordan (R) expressed his concern over her motivations for prosecuting Trump.
The inquiry seeks to determine if her actions were politically motivated or if they are justified in light of the evidence presented.
This investigation will be closely monitored by conservatives as it could shape the future of our justice system.
“Your indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated,” he wrote.
Regarding questions about her motivation, Jordan raised five issues
-Four days before the indictment was announced, Willis “launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted” her investigation into Trump;
-The infamous forewoman of the special grand jury that Willis convened who bragged about subpoenaing Trump;
-The allegedly accidental release of a document by a Fulton County clerk showing the forthcoming criminal charges against Trump hours before the grand jury officially voted;
-A judge disqualified Willis from targeting Georgia Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones (R) in her investigation; and
-Fulton County officials announced they will process Trump at the local jail like any other criminal, including forcing him to take a mug shot and post bond.
Jordan also expressed apprehension regarding the timing of the investigation, asserting that Willis hoped to start trial during primary season in the spring.
He further advanced his argument by emphasizing that this indictment appears to be a means of controlling federal officers operating within their official capacities, which may contravene the Supremacy Clause and elicit congressional interest considering its sway on federal funds granted to local law enforcement agencies.
To top it off, Jordan questioned Willis on whether or not there was any coordination between his office and DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith throughout the course of this investigation.
The top House Judiciary Committee Republican has requested documents from Willis’ office regarding the use of federal funds, communications with the Department of Justice (including special counsel Jack Smith’s office), and any other documents or communications with federal officials about her investigation.
In response to this request, a spokesperson for the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office declined to comment.
The letter was sent just hours before President Trump is expected to surrender at the Fulton County jail, where his bond has been set at $200,000.
