JUST IN: Judge Denies Trump’s Bid to Quash Fulton County DA’s Investigation as Indictment Looms

A judge on Monday denied Trump’s second bid to quash Fulton County DA Fani Willis’investigation into Trump’s efforts to challenge the 2020 election in Georgia.

Meanwhile, Fani Willis is reportedly ‘ready to go’ and gearing up to indict Trump within the next week or so.

Fulton County prosecutors are preparing sprawling racketeering charges against Trump over his effort to challenge the 2020 election in Georgia.

According to a leak to The Guardian, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis will likely indict Trump in the first two weeks of August.

Fani Willis based her investigation on President Trump’s call with Georgia officials that was later doctored and leaked to the fake news outlet Washington Post. The WaPo published a completely fraudulent text of the call. These phony charges have already been debunked by The Gateway Pundit and others.

Orange barriers were set up on Thursday evening and have led to speculation that Trump may be indicted over his 2020 phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger over his concerns over the 2020 election.

Judge Robert McBurney ripped Trump in his ruling on Monday.

“Perplexingly, prematurely, and with the standard pugnacity, Trump has filed not one but two mandamus actions against the District Attorney and this Court,” the judge wrote.

ABC News reported:

In another blow to former President Donald Trump’s efforts to stymie Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation into his conduct after the 2020 presidential election, a judge on Monday denied a motion filed in March by Trump’s legal team seeking to disqualify Willis and quash the findings of a special grand jury convened to review evidence in the matter.

In his ruling, Judge Robert McBurney wrote that Trump’s legal argument was “insufficient because, while being the subject (or even target) of a highly publicized criminal investigation is likely an unwelcome and unpleasant experience, no court ever has held that that status alone provides a basis for the courts to interfere with or halt the investigations.”

McBurney’s denial marks the latest in a series of legal setbacks for Trump. Earlier this month, the Georgia Supreme Court unanimously rejected a similar motion.

A separate motion, filed by Trump’s team to the Georgia Superior Court, will be the subject of an upcoming hearing on August 10.
