Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is in possession of evidence that exonerates former President Donald Trump and other Republicans of wrongdoing in their objections to the 2020 election results, according to a report from The Federalist.
In her broad indictment, Willis alleges that Trump, along with aides, advisors and lawyers, engaged in a “conspiracy” to manipulate votes and overturn the election results in Georgia. Among those named in Willis RICO case are David Schafer, one of the Peach State’s alternate electors in 2020, and Ray Smith, who served as one of Trump’s lawyers after the election.
Willis claims that Schafer and other electors ” “unlawfully falsely held themselves out” as Georgia’s “duly elected and qualified” presidential electors. She further accused them of attempting to “mislead” Georgia Secretary of State Braf Raffensperger and then-Vice President Mike Pence “into believing that they actually were such officers.”
A transcript of a crucial meeting between the electors obtained by The Federalist refutes the claims brought forward in Willis’ august 14 indictment, however.
At the start of the December 14, 2020 meeting, Schafer explained how he and his fellow electors were acting as “Republican nominees for Presidential Elector,” not as “duly elected and qualified”
