According to bombshell reporting that broke from Vice, it is “all but certain” that disgraced, scandal-ridden ex-President Donald Trump will be formally indicted on yet another round of criminal charges this coming summer — which will historically serve as the second time that Trump, and any former or current United States president, will face an official indictment on criminal charges.
In a world where Trump has, up until recently, seemed to get away with any and everything short of cold-blooded murder, you’re likely wondering just how serious this possibility of a second formal criminal indictment really is. Vice says, “You could even mark it in your calendar.” According to the explosive report, Fulton Country District Attorney Fani Willis is expected to hand down the monumental indictment between July 11 and Sept. 1.
The publication confirmed that DA Willis penned a letter to local law enforcement, in which she “formally asked local officials to beef up security during that window, when she plans to announce charging decisions in her long-running investigation of Trump’s attempt to reverse his 2020 election defeat in Georgia.”
Former Georgia state prosecutor Titus Nichols told Vice, “The Fulton DA’s letter makes it almost certain that Trump is getting indicted. There is no other reason to send something in writing to the sheriff.”

Should Trump be successful in becoming the Republican nominee, and Vice’s reporting turns out to be correct, Donald will find himself running in a presidential race while facing not just one, but two massive criminal indictments. In addition to the apparently impending charges in the state of Georgia related to his alleged election crimes, Trump was also recently arraigned in Manhattan, New York, on charges from District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office, related to the infamous Stormy Daniels and other hush money payments made during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Bragg’s charges against Trump made history as the very first time a sitting or former US president has been slammed with a formal criminal indictment.
Georgia and Manhattan are, of course, far from the only legal battles and potential charges Trump is facing. The former president is currently embroiled in a civil rape lawsuit with his accuser E. Jean Carroll, as well as the ongoing Justice Department investigations, spearheaded by AG Garland appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith, related to the deadly January 6th Capital attack, Trump’s overall efforts to overthrow the 2020 presidential election, and the now-infamous stolen Mar-a-Lago document scandal — all of which bear the potential for additional civil and criminal charges.
Vice made note that Willis’ letter to law enforcement officials in the state clearly expressed her concern for the very real potential of civil unrest resulting from the criminal charges against the corrupt former president who has crafted a cult-like following among his base of supporters.
“We have seen in recent years that some may go outside of public expressions of opinion that are protected by the First Amendment to engage in acts of violence that will endanger the safety of our community,” DA Fani Willis’ letter reads. “As leaders, it is incumbent upon us to prepare.”
The former president’s legal team released a statement, in which they attempted to do damage control on the heels of the bombshell news, claiming that the district attorney’s letter does not indicate that charges are imminent against Donald Trump: “The public release of this letter does nothing more than set forth a potential timetable for decisions the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office previously announced would be coming.”
Former President Trump continues to vehemently deny any and all allegations and charges lodged against him, in relation to all of the above legal battles he currently faces.
