Trump Blasts Rogue DA Fani Willis As A ‘Disaster’

Former President Donald Trump fired back at Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for her failure to control Atlanta’s crime issue. He called her tenure a “disaster” and said she ignored real problems while campaigning on a platform to “Get Trump.”

The 2024 Republican frontrunner asked, “Why is there so much murder…in Atlanta? Why is there so much violent crime in Atlanta?” His Truth Social posting accused Willis and others of failing to address the need to get a handle on the explosion of violent criminals in their cities.

Instead, “they let criminals go and they want to get Trump.” The former president declared they are simply attempting to drum up extra votes.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta saw its highest murder rate in decades the year after Willis took control of the DA’s office in 2021. The shocking total reached 34 homicides per 100,000 residents.

The city recorded 170 murders in 2022, the highest tally since 1996. Fox5 News reported that burglaries, car thefts and shoplifting also skyrocketed last year.

But for Willis and her cronies, public enemy number one is Donald Trump.

The DA has her own problems to contend with as political backlash to her persecution of Trump is underway. U.S. House Republicans in recent days launched an investigation into Willis and her probe of the former president.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) sent a letter to Willis questioning whether her probe into Trump was coordinated with Biden’s Justice Department. He wanted to know if there were ties with Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Jordan also questioned if federal funds were used in the Georgia investigation.

In the five-page letter to the Fulton County DA, Jordan asserted, “The federal government has a substantial interest in the welfare of former presidents.”

He added that not only is Trump a former president, but he is also a current candidate to return to the Oval Office. He leads the rest of the Republican field for 2024 by a wide margin. This, Jordan said, “implicates another core federal interest.”

House investigators also intend to probe the motivations of Willis to target Trump for indictment. He declared it is very much within congressional authority to “probe whether former presidents are being subjected to politically motivated investigations and prosecutions.”

House Republicans also initiated a probe into Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who led another indictment charge against Trump.
