Fani Willis, Fulton County District Attorney, as per a Washington Post report, gave at least eight of the 16 Georgia Republican ‘fake electors’ immunity deals amid Donald Trump’s bid to overturn the 2020 election.

The Post cited a new court filing.

Fani Willis is proving former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 Georgia election, which he and the Republicans lost. He was heard in a January 2021 phone call asking Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to help him “find 11,780 votes,” the exact number he needed to win the state.

In a court filing on Friday, attorney Kimberly Debrow who represents 10 of the fake electors said the Fulton County district attorney’s first offered the immunities in April.

“After reviewing the actual, written offers of immunity, each of those eight electors accepted their immunity offer,” Debrow said.

“The District Attorney’s Motion is reckless, frivolous, offensive, and completely without merit,” she added.

Willis wanted to have Debrow disqualified from the case. The Friday filing was the attorney’s response to the motion.

Willis last month said that she was planning to announce indictments stemming from her investigation between July 11 and September 1.
