Fulton County District Attorney has secured the cooperation of former senior White House aide and House Select Committee star witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, in her investigation into Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. With the midterm election just a month away, District Attorney Fani Willis has circled the wagons of her criminal probe into the actions of the ex-president and those working on his behalf – penetrating his inner circle.

With a starring role in Justice Department’s criminal investigation and in the House Select Committee’s civil probe, there was very little that Hutchinson wasn’t privy to, given her close proximity to the former President and her position in the Oval Office as the right-hand woman to former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows

“The Witness actively participated in and spoke on the call, and the Special Purpose Grand Jury’s investigation has revealed that the Witness was involved in setting up the call.” – Fani Willis

After a Georgia Special Purpose grand jury was convened in May, Meadows was ordered to appear before it on September 27th, identified as “a necessary and material witness to the Special Purpose Grand Jury’s investigation.” Not only was then-Trump White House Chief of Staff present on the January 2021 call between his outgoing boss and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, where Trump was recorded asking Secretary Raffensperger to “find” him 11,780 votes – one more needed to overturn president-elect Biden’s victory in the state – just days before the January 6th attack on the Capitol, but Meadows traveled to Cobb County, GA in December to oversee an audit of absentee ballots.

“On December 22, 2020, the Witness made a surprise visit to the Cobb County Civic Center in Marietta, Georgia, where the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation were conducting an absentee ballot signature match audit. Officials conducting the audit were unaware of the Witness’s trip to Georgia until shortly before he arrived at the Civic Center. The Witness requested to personally observe the audit process but was prevented from doing so because the audit was not open to the public,” Meadows’ subpoena reads.

E-mails obtained by the United States Senate Judiciary Committee were released publicly, showing Meadown’s involvement in pushing false allegations of voter fraud.

“Between at least December 30, 2020, and January 1, 2021, the Witness sent e-mails to United States Department of Justice officials, including Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, making various allegations of voter fraud in Georgia and elsewhere and requesting that the Department of Justice conduct investigations into these allegations.” – DA Willis 

Meadows didn’t show up to his September 27 hearing but is reportedly in talks with the Fulton County District Attorney’s office, KVIA reported. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for later this month.
