Atlanta DA Fani Willis Took Down a Grammy-Winning Rapper. Now She’s Targeting Trump

August 08, 2023

(Bloomberg) -- The next place where former President Donald Trump may be indicted is Atlanta, where prosecutor Fani Willis has a history of going big. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg also charged Trump over hush-money payments to a porn star to boost his 2016 election odds. Willis has been building her case against Trump and his allies for more than two years. She said in a July 29 television interview that she will decide by Sept. 1 whether to charge Trump. In the Trump case, Willis could tie the Raffensperger call, Trump supporters who falsely claimed to be Georgia’s electors, false legislative testimony and pressure on other state officials into one sweeping tale.
