The Fulton County District Attorney, Fani Willis, has been receiving threatening messages ahead of her decision to either indict former Donald Trump or not. It is being speculated that Willis will indeed indict the country’s 45th president which Atlanta News First reports has prompted a barrage of threats being sent to her office. 

The outlet reports that the emails Willis has received have been racially charged and derogatory. One such email Willis says she received August 28. It’s subject line read, “Fani Willis-Corrupt (N-word).” With the email body reading, “You are going to fail, you Jim Crow Democrat w***e.” 

An Expected Outcome

Willis shared the derogatory message with her colleagues in an email explaining that she found the emails unsurprising.

“It is not very unique,” Willis wrote in her email. “In fact, it is pretty typical and what I have come to expect. I am also aware of some equally ignorant voice mails coming in both to the county customer service and my office.”

Willis added that se expects to see more threats coming in over the next 30 days as the public awaits her decision.

“I guess I am sending this as a reminder that you should stay alert over the month of August and stay safe,” she told her colleagues in the email.

Willis is set to declare her decision to indict or not based on her investigations into former President Trump’s alleged attempts to foil and tamper with the 2020 election results sometime in August or September. She has promised that the decision will be historic. Willis opened investigations into Trump’s actions during the 2020 Presidential elections two years ago. 

A special grand jury then gathered in May 2022. Willis alleges, in court filings, that “a multi-state, coordinated plan by the Trump campaign to influence the results of the November 2020 election in Georgia and elsewhere.”
