The Georgia state judicial hearing is set to finally take place today in the state’s ongoing investigation and case against former President Donald Trump and his alleged illegal efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in the southern swing state. During this hearing, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is expected to call on the judge to publicly release the report that was recently concluded by the GA special grand jury, containing the evidence collected in their investigation into Trump and his associates’ efforts to tamper with and overthrow the election results.
Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump is not handling this well.
As he waits on bated breath for this hearing to begin, the scandal-ridden, corrupt former president took to his struggling Truth Social platform, where he effectively let loose on the DA, vehemently denying any wrongdoing in the state of Georgia, and once again repeatedly spouting his false claims that he only lost the state of Georgia in 2020 because the election was rigged against him.
In an unhinged series of posts that were chock full of shouty caps in an effort to really get his point across, Trump screamed, “My phone call to the Secretary of State of Georgia, and a second call which the Marxists, Communists, Racists, and RINOs don’t even want to talk about, were ‘PERFECT’ calls. Many people, including lawyers for both sides, were knowingly on the line. I was protesting a RIGGED & STOLEN Election, which evidence proves it was. I won Georgia by a lot, but only needed a small number of votes from that total number. They cheated in many ways including STUFFING ballots, ALL CAUGHT LIVE ON TAPE…”

The ex-president’s pontification went on for several posts, writing in the second, “With many people on the line on what was a PERFECT call protesting the Rigged Georgia Election, which I have a clear right to do, and in fact an obligation to do since I made the call as President, how come not one person said, while on the call, that I acted inappropriately, or made a statement of protest at what I said, & then slammed down the phone. Not one, even with so many opposing people, lawyers, and others on the line. NO ADMONISHMENT at all. We nicely agreed to speak again…”
In the third and final (for now, anyway) post, Trump fumed, “That was the call to Georgia. It was PERFECT, nothing done or said wrong. We agreed to continue our conversation at a later date. The other call, that was probably taped by them illegally, was so good that when the Washington Post heard it, they did a retraction and apology because they were fed false information, perhaps by the Secretary of State’s office, and they were angry about it! The Election in Georgia was RIGGED AND STOLLEN. We have all the evidence needed. That is the CRIME!”
Trump’s claims are, of course, still backed by zero evidence. In fact, the former president personally played a large role in multiple legal cases, reviews, and probes into his claims that the Georgia election was rife with significant fraud and rigging, and that people were caught “stuffing” ballots. None of those cases went in the ex-president’s favor and only served to prove that his conspiracy theories were just that — the desperate ramblings of a mentally unhinged narcissist who couldn’t swallow his humiliating loss.
The former president participated in an infamous phone call in late 2020 with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which Donald Trump shamelessly ordered the GA state official to “find” the 11,000 extra votes he needed to reverse Joe Biden’s win in the Peach State. Raffensperger, who is a Republican himself, refused to do what Trump was demanding, and couldn’t have legally done so even if he wanted to.
Willis’ damning investigation — which is separate from the DOJ’s investigation into similar matters, for which Special Counsel Jack Smith was recently appointed to spearhead the probe — goes a step further still in implicating South Carolina Trump ally and Senator Lindsey Graham, who personally made contact with state officials with the same goal in mind, as well as the infamous plot to declare a slate of fake “alternate” electors with the purpose of creating confusion and ambiguity regarding which candidate truly won the state of Georgia.
Recently, reporting indicated that Willis could potentially pursue charges against the former president under anti-racketeering laws — the same subset of charges that are often seen used against organized crime bosses and violent gang members.
