Fulton Cty. DA Requests Protection for Trump Grand Jurors, Calls Out Congressional Harassment

HeadlineSep 08, 2023

In Georgia, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has asked a court to help protect members of the special grand jury that indicted Donald Trump and 18 co-conspirators for attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election, after a far-right website published their home addresses, phone numbers and vehicle information. Willis, who is Black, also had her information doxed online, alongside racist and derogatory comments.

On Thursday, Willis sent a scathing letter to Congressmember Jim Jordan of Ohio, the Republican chair of the House Judiciary Committee, after he announced plans for a congressional probe into her prosecution of Trump and his allies. Willis wrote, “Your attempt to invoke congressional authority to intrude upon and interfere with an active criminal case in Georgia is flagrantly at odds with the Constitution.”
