Former US President Donald Trump’s campaign strongly condemned the new indictments in Georgia, marking them as a “bogus” attempt to disrupt his potential 2024 presidential campaign. Additionally, they referred to Fani Willis, the Democratic candidate for district attorney in Fulton County, as a “rabid partisan.”

The campaign in a statement after the decision said, “Ripping a page from Crooked Joe Biden’s playbook, Willis has strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign.”

“These activities by Democrat leaders constitute a grave threat to American democracy and are direct attempts to deprive the American people of their rightful choice to cast their vote for President,” the campaign statement said. “Call it election interference or election manipulation—it is a dangerous effort by the ruling class to suppress the choice of the people. It is un-American and wrong.”

Indictments were handed down by a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, on Monday night as part of a wider inquiry into former president Donald Trump and his associates. The probe focuses on their efforts to have the results of the state’s 2020 presidential election thrown out.

The specifics of the indictments, including the people and charges implicated, were not yet publicly documented at the time the Trump campaign issued their statement. His supporters have claimed that “election interference” is being carried out by Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, and other people in an effort to derail his probable bid for the presidency in 2024. The team said that despite having a sizable lead in Republican primary polls, Trump is still steadfast and dedicated to his mission.

Trump’s campaign emphasized his steadfastness and underlined his right to free speech, especially when he expressed his opinion that the 2020 election was rigged. Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, has been looking into a number of issues, including a campaign of intimidation against elected officials and a scheme to create substitute electors who would back Donald Trump.
