Prosecutor Fani Willis Faces Racist Threats After Trump Indictment

Georgia Prosecutor Fani Willis, who is overseeing another upcoming indictment of former President Donald Trump, revealed that she had received racist threats following the legal action. Trump is expected to be formally charged by Willis in September on allegations that he interfered with Georgia’s election process.

As detailed by NBC News, the District Attorney for Fulton County received multiple emails and voicemails using slurs and other offensive language. One email read: “Fani Willis = Corrupt N*****” in the subject line, with the actual message referring to her as a “Jim Crow Democrat w****.”
The prosecutor promptly forwarded the email to authorities within the Georgia district.

However, the racist messaging is not a one-off occurrence, as Willis is frequently bombarded with this type of harassment, even in calls to her offices. Despite this, Willis refuses to let the threats undermine the “oath” she made regarding her duties and the yearslong investigation against Trump,
“I took an oath. No one other than the citizens of Fulton County put me in this seat. I have every intention of doing my job. Please make decisions that keep your staff safe.”
Willis has been under an immense spotlight recently as she remains dedicated to moving forward with the charges. The lawyer understands the hatred fueled by Trump’s supporters stems from her insistence that he go to trial for his alleged misdeeds.

“Some people may not be happy with the decisions that I’m making,” Willis continued. “And sometimes, when people are unhappy, they act in a way that could create harm.”
