An attorney for former President Donald Trump said that she expects a fourth indictment, this time in relation to the aftermath of the 2020 election in Georgia. Alina Habba told Fox News this week that she anticipates charges from Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis (D).
Habba said that the district attorney has been taking steps that would indicate charges are coming. Habba said that Willis has had a public relations team “doing fresh pictures for her” and that barricades have been put up in Fulton County in case of potential protests.
Trump’s attorney said that Willis “wants her moment and she will get on the bandwagon with the rest of the corrupt” law enforcement officials.

The pending case depends on the decision of a Fulton County grand jury. The county, home to Atlanta, is dominated by the Democratic Party.
When asked about the overall scope of charges against the former president, Habba cited Trump’s statement regarding the last set of indictments by special prosecutor Jack Smith.
“It says it all. This is not America. This is not how you fight your political opponents, because you can’t win on issues, and you can’t win on policies,” she said.
The attorney cited the former president’s record in the White House, then added that Democrats “arrest Trump over and over again to distract you from the corruption that’s happening inside the Biden administration and the policies that they can’t win on.”
Habba said that when the Democratic Party comes after a candidate in “such an unwavering way, in such an un-American way, an unprecedented way, you know that they’re afraid.”
She added that the former president is “also very much in love with this country, and they’re not going to stop him.”
When asked recently about the potential charges against Trump, the Fulton County district attorney said, “We’re ready.”
She did not comment on specifics regarding the case. The local grand jury is considering whether or not Trump’s phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) and other actions violated any laws.
“We’re concentrating on Georgia and things that impacted Georgia,” Willis said.
