On Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, asked three questions of Fani Willis, the Fulton County district attorney who indicted Donald Trump.
Jordan posted a tweet, asking a series of questions surrounding Willis’ indictment of the former president. “Was Fulton County DA Fani Willis working with Jack Smith? Was she communicating with the Executive Branch? Were any federal funds used in the investigation of President Trump?”
During an interview with Fox News, Jordan repeated these questions in slightly different verbiage. He revealed the list of questions his investigation had for Willis, saying, “Did you coordinate with the Biden administration — the same administration who has indicted their general election opponent in D.C. and Miami already? Did you coordinate with them? Did you coordinate with Jack Smith? And did you use federal funds as part of this investigation?”
Jordan was unsure if Willis had used the same witnesses that Special Counsel Jack Smith did in his own investigation of Trump.
Jordan also noted, “We asked these same questions about Alvin Bragg a few months ago and he in fact did use American tax dollars to go after President Trump in Manhattan. ….we are going to be just as aggressive here. We are going to do it within the [bounds of the] Constitution but we are going to do our duty to get the answers the American people deserve for this ridiculous indictment that has taken place in Georgia.”
Bragg was the first District Attorney to indict former President Trump in New York, who has now collected four separate indictments.
Jordan had previously criticized the decision by Willis to prosecute Trump. RTM previously reported that Jordan said, “You can’t prosecute a former President of the United States without the public having 100% confidence in your motivations. The role of the House Judiciary Committee is to ensure that every American, no matter their political beliefs, feels the system is fair.”
Jordan added: “Indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding [her] actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated.”
However, Jordan and other federal officials aren’t the only ones coming out to criticize Willis’ indictment. Constitutional lawyer Robert Barnes wrote on X that Chris Carr (R), the attorney general of Georgia, “promised honest elections, rule of law, and stopping prosecutorial abuse of power. The law requires you to step in any removed case. Why is your office AWOL on #GeorgiaIndictment of President Trump?”
Barnes then cited Georgian legal statute O.C.G.A. 15-18-6(4), which “states ‘the Attorney General to appear for the state as the prosecuting officers’ with the DA in any removed case. [Jeff Clark, one of the co-defendants] removed the #GeorgiaIndictment against #Trump to federal court. Where is [Attorney General Carr] and why is he AWOL?”
