Former Trump administration official Kash Patel took aim at Ulton County District Attorney Fani Willis following the grand jury indictment of President Donald Trump, saying she “lied to the world.”
A grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, charged Trump and other associates over efforts to contest the 2020 election results.
“She just lied to the universe, as the district attorney, your name, your stamp is on every single indictment,” Kash Patel told Fox News, referring to Fani Willis.
“You do not have those copies of indictments floating around and blame the clerical system and the judicial officer in the clerk’s office for a mishap,” Patel said.
“She just said she has no idea how that indictment was presented and posted online. She just lied to the world,” Patel continued.
As we reported on Monday, a document listing charges against Trump was briefly posted online before being scrubbed.
“That should tell you everything you need to know about her weaponized system of justice, her personal animosity toward Donald Trump, and the destruction of due process and the continued election rigging that goes on the state level,” Patel said.
“It was done with her approval through her hands and through all of her assistant district attorneys,” Patel added.
“She is responsible. She just lied to the world,” Patel said.
Attorneys for Trump also blasted Willis over the leak.
“The events that have unfolded today have been shocking and absurd, starting with the leak of a presumed and premature indictment before the witnesses had testified or the grand jurors had deliberated and ended with the District Attorney being unable to offer any explanation,” Drew Findling, Jennifer Little, and Marissa Goldberg said in a statement released by the Trump campaign.
“In light of this major fumble, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office clearly decided to force through and rush this 98-page indictment,” they added.
“This one-sided grand jury presentation relied on witnesses who harbor their own personal and political interests— some of whom ran campaigns touting their efforts against the accused and/or profited from book deals and employment opportunities as a result,” the attorneys continued.
“We look forward to a detailed review of this indictment which is undoubtedly just as flawed and unconstitutional as this entire process has been,” the attorneys concluded.
