Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is out of control.
The Democrat prosecutor wants to jail Donald Trump for challenging the results of the 2020 election.
And Fani Willis just got hit with one truthbomb that will destroy her case against Donald Trump.
Former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark was one of the Trump aides that Willis charged in her sprawling 41-count RICO indictment alleging the mere act of contesting the results of the 2020 election amounted to a criminal conspiracy.
Clark first served as Assistant Attorney General of the Environment and Natural Resources Division and then as acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division in the Trump administration.
After the election, Clark drafted a letter to Georgia officials alleging widespread fraud in the 2020 election.
However, Clark’s superiors in the Civil Rights Division spiked the letter and it was never sent.
Clark’s lawyers filed a letter demanding the judge dismiss the charges against him on the grounds that Willis indicted where she lacked jurisdiction, as Clark never interacted with anyone in the state of Georgia.
“There is zero allegation or evidence that Mr. Clark directed any purposeful activity into the State of Georgia,” the motion to dismiss read. “The inquiry ought to end there. But it gets worse: there are zero specific allegations or evidence that Mr. Clark agreed with any resident defendant to do anything. An arm-waving general and conclusory allegation that all defendants conspired to unlawfully overturn the 2020 election is not sufficient to meet the threshold due process requirements for establishing personal jurisdiction.”
Clark’s lawyers argued that Willis created a Constitutional crisis by trying to “punish a thought crime with the full penal and coercive power of the State.”
“So here we are: this District Attorney seeks to imprison the leading Presidential candidate of her opposite political party, to the acclaim of those baying for his destruction. She has dragged all of us not just into the outskirts of dangerous constitutional territory but into the maelstrom of a full-blown constitutional collapse,” the motion adds.
Clark’s lawyers argued that Willis’ main contention, that anyone who disagreed with the assertion that there were no irregularities in the 2020 election is a criminal, flies in the face of the First Amendment. She is claiming political opinions she doesn’t like are the foundations of a criminal conspiracy.
“The Indictment rests on a dogmatic premise that the election of President Biden was free of material irregularity and that any thought, expression, or conduct of the Defendants to the contrary was necessarily wrongful and criminal, and thus constituted a massive (but on its face preposterous) Georgia RICO conspiracy,” the motion continued.
Clark’s lawyers warned the court that allowing Willis to proceed with a criminal case that is predicated solely on the fact that a prosecutor finds the opinions about an election odious is republic-ending stuff.
“No branch or department of any government, being bound by the First Amendment, may dictate that opinions regarding the election are criminally ‘false,’” the motion declared. “Such matters may not be prosecuted in our constitutional Republic. At issue is whether we actually still live in such a Republic.”
