A Georgia court has thwarted Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ plans to have former President Donald Trump and 18 other co-defendants tried together in a case surrounding Georgia’s election subversion.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee announced that Trump and 16 of his co-defendants will move forward separately, leaving their trial date undetermined. Only Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell, the remaining two co-defendants, are set for trial this October.
The decision deals a blow to DA Willis, who argued that a joint trial would be more efficient for the justice system. But the court suggested otherwise, raising questions about the timeline of Trump’s various legal entanglements as he considers a 2024 presidential run.
This recent ruling pushes the possibility of Trump’s Georgia trial potentially into 2024 or later, adding more complexity to an already loaded legal calendar for the former president.
So, the question is, how will this affect DA Fani Willis’ strategy in her pursuit against Trump and his associates?
