(LibertySociety.com) – Former President Trump could potentially be facing two additional legal woes that will certainly interfere with his time to campaign across the country, as deadlines are looming for prosecutors. A recent ruling by a federal judge gave the Department of Justice (DOJ) a July 13 deadline to decide if they would allow E. Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit to move forward, as they could instead reiterate that he has immunity for comments he made about her when he was President. After the former President was found guilty in another lawsuit filed by Carroll, he discussed the outcome during a CNN Town Hall. Carroll used personal comments he made about her as a reason to amend her federal lawsuit, resulting in the judge’s order to the DOJ.
District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation into the questioning of the results of the presidential election in Georgia is also expected to wrap up soon, as she previously told the Fulton County Sheriff that a decision would be made between July and September of this year. Although former President Trump has repeatedly claimed that he did nothing wrong when he contacted Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and asked him to look into the various fraud allegations in Fulton County in the 2020 presidential election. But charges could still be brought against him and others soon. Delegates who chose to send an alternate slate of electors to Washington D.C. for the former President are also part of her investigation.
Rumors have been swirling that Willis’ decision is imminent as she has asked courts to clear their schedules for the first 18 days of August and ordered her staff to work from home. Left-wing journalists are certain that these actions are a signal that Willis will be dropping the hammer during that period, although their suspicions are mere speculation at this point. Former President Trump has repeatedly reiterated the claim that he is innocent and is the target of a witch hunt to interfere with the 2024 presidential election.
