Trump: Georgia Won’t ‘Stand’ for 4th Indictment

During a recent appearance on “Eric Bolling The Balance” on Newsmax, former President Donald Trump humorously commented on the possibility of facing another indictment, suggesting that if it happened a fourth time, it might be the final straw.

He expressed, “I’m confident the citizens of Georgia — a state I believe I performed exceptionally well in, winning the first and even more decisively the second time — wouldn’t tolerate it.” The remarks came during a 42-minute conversation with Eric Bolling, held at Trump’s summer residence in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The backdrop to this discussion is District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County, Georgia, who is currently assembling a grand jury, reportedly to explore charges related to Trump’s objections to the 2020 election outcome. Bolling raised the question of whether Willis would grant Trump an impartial trial.

To which Trump responded, “Absolutely not. I question her competence.”

The former President was perplexed about the timing of any potential indictment, especially since it could emerge right before the 2024 Republican primary season kicks off, marked by a debate scheduled for August 23 in Milwaukee.

He mused, “She might reconsider. Frankly, her actions are a mystery to me. If there was any merit, why didn’t she act 2.5 years earlier?”

Revisiting a call he made, Trump said, “I merely voiced my belief that the election didn’t reflect the genuine vote count. I’m of the firm belief I secured the election by a wide margin. That was my message in the call.”

In line with previous reports, Trump had requested Georgia to delve into claims of election irregularities.

To emphasize his point, Trump reiterated, “I mentioned needing just 11,000 votes, but my conviction is that I had won by an even greater margin. I’m firm on this, and time will reveal the truth.”

He also drew a parallel with the House Democrats’ initial unsuccessful attempt to impeach him when he asked Ukraine to probe into what have emerged as significant bribery allegations, with potential links to Joe Biden.

Concluding his thoughts, Trump stated, “She seems fixated on a completely legitimate call. My conversation, in my view, was even clearer than my previous one with Ukraine, which, as it turns out, was more justified than most realized. My initial intent was to commend [Ukraine President Volodymyr] Zelenskyy.”
