Fulton County’s bogus Trump indictment is Democrats’ latest attempt to criminalize free speech
On Monday night, Fulton County, Georgia’s highly partisan district attorney, Fani Willis, announced that former President Donald Trump and 18 of his associates would be charged for what she claims was an attempt to “conspire and endeavor to conduct and participate in criminal enterprise” to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

With more evidence implicating President Brandon in his family’s foreign business affairs dropping regularly, Democrats apparently thought this week would be the perfect time to drop another round of get-Trump indictments.
Among the other people named in the 98-page indictment are Rudy Giuliani and Mark Meadows, the former president’s then-lawyer and chief of staff, respectively.
While a cursory reading of the melodramatic accusations made at the indictment’s outset will undoubtedly give America’s regime-approved media the vapors, a deep dive into the full filing reveals just how egregious the charges really are. To justify her claim that Trump and his associates engaged in a “conspiracy” to overturn the 2020 election results, Willis cites numerous acts of indictees engaging in lawful free speech that she asserts helped further this so-called conspiracy.
In Act 22, for example, Willis cites a Dec. 3, 2020, tweet from Trump telling his followers to tune into One America News Network (OANN) to watch state legislative hearings on Georgia’s elections. According to Willis, this constitutes “an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.”
But the incident is hardly the first in which Willis attempts to criminalize free speech. In Act 100, she similarly claims a Dec. 30, 2020, Trump tweet telling people to watch other hearings on the conduction of Georgia’s 2020 election on OANN and Newsmax is another example of Trump furthering this so-called conspiracy.
Other examples of perfectly legitimate actions or rhetoric Willis cited as a “furtherance” of alleged crimes include a Dec. 7, 2020, retweet by Giuliani of a tweet encouraging Georgians to “call [their] state Senate House Reps ask them to sign the petition for special session” to ensure the state has “free & fair elections.” Willis also cited a Nov. 7, 2020, text Meadows sent to Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., asking for the phone numbers of Pennsylvania’s House speaker and Senate leader because Trump wanted “to chat with them.”
At the end of the day, Willis’ sham indictment is nothing more than a blatant, Democrat-backed attempt to criminalize Americans’ First Amendment right to free speech. It’s not just designed to silence Trump and his associates, but anyone who dares to go against Democrats and their Marxist agenda.
Much like the other indictments leveled against Trump, Willis’ charges are just a preview of what leftist politicians across the country want to do to everyday Americans. If they can do it to him and other notable Republicans, they can — and will — do it to you.
