Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis aims to imprison Trump, his former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and Rudy Giuliani in the RICO and conspiracy case involving the former president.
“We have a long road ahead,” the Fulton County district attorney, Fani Willis, wrote in one email on November 29, according to The Guardian. “Long after these folks are in jail, we will still be practicing law.”
In August, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis hit President Trump and 18 others with RICO and conspiracy charges for daring to challenge the 2020 election.
A grand jury in Fulton County handed down a 41-count indictment, charging Trump with RICO and conspiracy offenses.
Four of Trump’s co-defendants, including attorneys, have pleaded guilty pleas to reduced charges as part of plea deals in Fani Willis’s RICO case.
In October, Trump’s lawyer, Kenneth Chesebro, entered a guilty plea in the Georgia case in return for reduced charges.
Chesebro was scheduled to go to trial, but he opted for a plea agreement as jury selection was in progress. To avoid imprisonment, he will pay a $5,000 fine, serve a 5-year probation term, and complete 100 hours of community service.
The attorney for Trump also wrote an apology letter and must testify.
Attorney Sidney Powell and bail bondsman Scott Hall both entered guilty pleas in exchange for reduced charges because Fani Willis does not have a RICO case.
In October, former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis entered a guilty plea in Fani Willis’ Georgia election case, securing reduced charges as part of the agreement.
Ellis became the fourth co-defendant and third attorney to plead guilty in the Georgia election case. None of the defendants has admitted guilt to RICO charges.
A tearful Ellis, aged 38, admitted guilt to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings. However, she did not enter a plea for the RICO charge.
As part of her plea agreement, Ellis received a sentence of 5 years probation, ordered to pay a $5,000 fine, a requirement to complete 100 hours of community service, and the task of writing an apology letter to the people of Georgia in a Mao struggle session.
Fani Willis’s prosecutors, however, are not anticipated to present plea deals to Trump, Meadows, and Giuliani.
Attorneys for President Trump have previously stated that they won’t negotiate a deal with the Fulton County DA. Trump entered a plea of not guilty to all charges.
