(FixThisNation.com) – Legal experts have claimed that the length of the Georgia election interference trail could affect former President Donald Trump’s other trials. Fulton County Fani Willis, who has brought forth the indictment, has claimed that she wants to have all 19 defendants in this case in the same trial. The defendants are all charged with racketeering over their coordinated efforts to overturn the election results in the state in 2020.
Willis has suggested that her office could be ready to start the trial as early as October 23. However, Willis might not be able to get her wish of having all the defendants charged at the same time. Former Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro have both pushed to have the trials related to their indictments expedited, which would sever the connection between their case and the cases of their defendants.
On Wednesday, Scott McAfee, the Fulton County Judge, will be overseeing a hearing focused on whether the two former lawyers should be allowed to have independent trials in their cases. McAfee has called for Willis’ office to prove a “good faith” estimate of what the earliest possible date would be for all 19 defendants to be jointly trialed, as well as how many witnesses and the size of evidence they would like to bring into this case.
Harry Litman, the former Deputy Assistant Attorney General took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to state that Willis is most likely going to have a problem with coming up with an accurate estimate, especially considering her previous trials.
