For the second time, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has denied a request to release documents related to former President Donald Trump. These documents are connected to the ongoing indictment case against Trump and 18 of his associates.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan requested documents related to the ongoing trial of Trump. Willis denied the request, claiming the request and the positions for the request were “meritless.”
Willis told Jordan that she felt he did not know Georgia law and that the request was an abuse of his power. There are many Republicans, including Jordan, who believe the denial of the documents shows there is something to hide.
In reaction to the denial of the paperwork and other related issues with the indictment, Jordan is moving forward with plans against FBI Director Christopher Wray. Jordan plans on holding Wray in contempt of Congress.
The denial of documents Jordan requests is just one more red flag in the list of issues with the indictment case against Trump. Several incidents have led Republicans and conservatives to question the validity of the indictment case.
There is a long-standing question regarding the charges of trying to disrupt counting votes in the 2020 Presidential election. Some believe Trump did question the count and only asked for a recount.
The request to ask for a recount or to question the ballot count of an election is a right of anyone running for public office. The charges indicate Trump did not merely ask for a recount. He instead impeded the count and tried to overturn the election results.
The documents in the indictment case should back up these claims and show the scope of the investigation. With Willis denying the release of those documents, she is proving there is something to hide and that many who believe the indictment charges and case are fraudulent are correct.
The denial also backs up the theory this indictment and the charges associated with the indictment are a way to prohibit Trump from running in 2024 and regaining the presidential seat.
