Look, I realize that the actual charges against Trump do not center on simply claiming the election was stolen (the RICO conspiracy supposedly leads to the alternate electors scheme), but anyone who can read the above post and not laugh has no sense of humor. Think about it. While Willis lectures Trump at press conferences about daring to tarnish the supposed sanctity of Georgia’s elections, she was out there talking about busted water pipes and claiming the election might be stolen from Democrats. I mean, come on. You can’t script irony any better than that.
Fani Willis Questioned 2020 Election In Facebook Posts: ‘What Ballots Are They Throwing Out?’
By Ilan Hulkower | Trending Politics
The prosecutor has made many posts on social media questioning election outcomes and procedures. She did so not only for the 2020 election but also concerning the 2018 midterm elections. As Benny Johnson observed, “Fulton County DA Fani Willis regularly questioned election results & used her office to push unfounded election conspiracies. On the eve of Trump’s arrest in Georgia for “challenging” an election — a deep dive into the prosecutor’s history of doing the *same* thing.”
Attached to Johnson’s post was a statement by Willis that “A TEAM of lawyers needs to watch” what occurs in Georgia and ensure every vote is counted. She noted that the team should start in her own county and ensure that Georgia gives “an honest accounting” without “stunts.” In her rant, she also noted the strange and convenient water leaks that occur in that county.
Benny Johnson further wrote, “As a public official, Fani Willis regularly and consistently questioned Georgia’s election procedures and pushed unfounded election conspiracy theories on her public social media profile. Fani is indicting Trump for the *exact* same thing.”
Attached to that post is Willis asking “Why Fulton” after news of a water burst interrupting ballot counting broke. Nor is Fani Willis new to expressing election skepticism. Benny Johnson noted that “In the days following the 2018 midterms, Fani Willis expressed concerns about the election not being properly run by implying all votes weren’t counted.”
Attached to that comment was Willis’s November 24, 2018 Facebook post that read in part “You all better start paying attention to what is really going on…and pay attention to reality” in connection to vote counting. Johnson also found that “[h]ours after the last ballots in the 2018 midterms were cast, Fani Willis openly boasts about the power Georgia’s Secretary of State has to” manipulate elections.
Attached to that was her post where she wrote of the Secretary of State’s office, “That person controls elections. I wonder if we yet realize that is an important role.” It gets worse for Willis, though, as one of her posts in 2020 noted that the 2020 election was a “mess.” Johnson observed, “Two days following the 2020 election she is now criminally indicting Trump for questioning, Fani Willis directly calls the election a “mess” … This meme was posted on her Facebook— seemingly agreeing with Trump on the poor election procedures in 2020.”
Conservative commentator Collin Rugg also revealed that there were posts by the DA where “she told her followers she was ‘scared’ that they ‘messed up’ the election.”
“Days later on November 7th, Willis released multiple posts explaining how proud she was that Kamala Harris was the next vice president. Does anyone actually believe this woman has the ability to enforce the law equally and fairly?”
