In a bizarre turn of events, an indictment against former President Donald Trump was briefly posted and then deleted by Fulton County officials in Georgia. The county clerk claimed that the charges were not filed and called the document “fictitious,” but later the grand jury voted to formally indict Trump on the exact same counts. How did the county clerk manage to post the charges before the grand jury even voted on them? Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis had no answers to offer, only stating that she was not familiar with the clerk’s duties and couldn’t speculate on the matter.
This mishap raises serious concerns about the professionalism and fairness of the indictment process. It is highly unusual for an indictment against a former president, especially one who is a leading candidate for the next presidential election, to be mishandled in such a manner. The fact that the deleted document ended up accurately reflecting the final indictment only adds to the confusion and doubt surrounding this case.
Reporter asks Fani Willis about the supposedly "fictitious" Trump indictment posted online earlier that now matched the official charges:

One can’t help but wonder if this was a deliberate attempt to undermine Trump’s reputation and political aspirations. The timing of the document’s posting and subsequent deletion seems suspicious at best. It is crucial that the legal process remains transparent and unbiased, especially when dealing with high-profile cases like this. Unfortunately, this incident only further erodes trust in our justice system.
It is unacceptable for such a mistake to occur in a case of this magnitude. The county officials in Fulton County had one job to do, and they couldn’t even get it right. This type of incompetence and negligence should not be tolerated, and it raises serious questions about the legitimacy of the entire prosecution. If the county clerk can’t handle a simple task like posting an indictment correctly, how can we trust that the rest of the proceedings will be conducted fairly?
It is clear that there are forces at play here, trying to undermine Trump and prevent his potential return to the White House. This incident is just another example of the partisan games being played by those who refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election. It is disheartening to see our justice system being used as a weapon for political purposes. This is not how justice is supposed to work in America, and we must demand better.
