Indictment Watch: Georgia, Georgia, Georgia Edition

I eschewed my customary featured image on Georgia posts, which is the Allman Brothers Eat A Peach album cover with Georgia, Georgia, Georgia emblazoned thereon. It’s not because  of flagging enthusiasm but I stumbled into this state flag retrospective. Note that the confederate stars and bars were not added to the flag until 1956, which was when massive resistance to desegregation was in full swing.

That bit of Lost Cause trivia has little to do with this post, but I got to use the word eschew. Using that word has turned into a lost cause of its own or some such shit.

I usually digress that wildly later in a post but I wanted to run that flag up the pole and see who saluted.

The news from Georgia is good:

“A grand jury being seated Tuesday in Atlanta will likely consider whether criminal charges are appropriate for former President Donald Trump or his Republican allies for their efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss in Georgia.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has been investigating since shortly after Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in early 2021 and suggested the state’s top elections official could help him “find 11,780 votes,” just enough needed to beat Democrat Joe Biden.

The 2 1/2-year investigation expanded to include an examination of a slate of Republican fake electors, phone calls by Trump and others to Georgia officials in the weeks after the 2020 election and unfounded allegations of widespread election fraud made to state lawmakers.

I know what you’re thinking: wasn’t there already a grand jury? Yes, but it was a special grand jury without the power to indict. It’s a not-so peachy quirk of Georgia state law.

The special grand jury indicated that it would have indicted unnamed perps if it had the power. The foreperson took advantage of her 15 minutes of fame and did multiple interviews, but she didn’t name names. The implication, however, is that Rudy and the Indicted Impeached Insult Comedian were in the picture. Stay tuned.

In the purloined papers case, Team Trump is using Waltine Saltine Nauta’s alleged lawyer issues as a delay tactic. It remains to be seen if Judge Cannon will fall for it. Stay tuned.

It’s getting messy in the Peach State, so the last word goes to Los Lobos:

  1. TFG should be impeached AGAIN.
    Only this time, by being buried in about 100 tons of rotting peaches….

    …then release the yellowjackets.
