Aug 14, 2023 | Political News

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is expected to start presenting her election case against former President Trump and allies before a grand jury as soon as Monday. 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Willis' prosecutors are to begin Monday morning at the courthouse in Atlanta, noting how former Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan and independent journalist George Chidi separately confirmed over the weekend that they were notified they will testify before a 23-person grand jury on Tuesday.

The case could result in the second indictment against Trump in two weeks over alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. Trump has been charged federally in connection with the alleged plot as a result of Special Counsel Jack Smith's Jan. 6 investigation. 

Willis could pursue racketeering charges against Trump and his allies, according to the Journal-Constitution. It has taken her between one and two days to present past RICO cases.
