‘The evidence is powerful’: Trump’s political future could be on the line following judge’s ruling

Donald Trump’s hopes of running for president in 2024 could suffer a fatal blow later this month when a judge in Georgia hears arguments regarding the release of a grand jury report over his involvement into possible election tampering that one legal scholar predicted could be “momentous.”

According to a report from the Guardian’s Chris McGreal, the grand jury’s report is now in the hands of the judge, and, if the report recommends prosecution and is made public, it could lead Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to follow through and drag the former president into court.

As the report notes, the 23-member panel wrapped up their work last Monday and specifically requested the report be viewed by the public — something Trump’s lawyers will likely try to stop.

According to legal scholar Norm Eisen of the Brookings Institution, which issued its own report stating the former president is “at substantial risk of prosecution,” there is a wealth of evidence that could lead to prosecution for “improperly influencing government officials, forgery and criminal solicitation.”

Speaking with McGreal of the Guardian, Eisen claimed it is “highly likely” Willis will follow the recommendations of the grand jury and proceed with prosecution.

“The evidence is powerful, and the law is very favorable to the prosecutors in Georgia,” the attorney explained. “I believe the [special grand jury] report very likely calls for the prosecution of Trump and his co-conspirators.”
