A former prosecutor and legal expert have both stated that the indictment of former President Donald Trump in Georgia was unnecessary and contributed to the claims of a “pile on” by the Democratic Party.
Elie Honig was responding to the news that Fulton County, Georgia’s newly elected Democratic District Attorney Fani Willis had filed charges against Trump, Newsweek reported.
According to Honig, Trump has already been indicted on federal charges for allegedly plotting to steal the 2020 election in seven states, one of which is Georgia.
Willis released a 98-page indictment in August, charging Trump and 18 others with a total of 41 felonies. All the accused were hit with the maximum 20-year sentence for racketeering. After having his mugshot taken at an Atlanta jail in late August, Trump pleaded not guilty.
