Trump's legal drama could soon continue in Georgia
April 6, 2023
Donald Trump's appearance in a Manhattan courtroom Tuesday marked a historic moment in American history - the first time a former or sitting U.S. president has been indicted on criminal charges.
But Trump's legal peril is far from over. Among those closely watching the proceedings were state and local officials in Georgia, where Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis (D) is expected to announce in coming weeks whether she will file charges in connection to efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn the state's 2020 presidential election results.
Willis has not spoken publicly about Trump's criminal indictment in New York, and a spokesman declined to comment. But close observers of Willis believe the New York case is unlikely to change the legal trajectory of her more than two-year investigation into alleged election interference in Georgia, a case that has already drawn intense public scrutiny and political attacks from Trump even before any potential charges have been filed.
