(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The Soros-backed Fulton County district attorney who orchestrated Donald Trump’s arrest on Thursday has a long and vile history of disputing election results and promoting voter conspiracy theories, both alleged crimes associated with the multi-count RICO indictment and arrest of the former president.
“As a public official, Fani Willis regularly and consistently questioned Georgia’s election procedures and pushed unfounded election conspiracy theories on her public social media profile,” reported Benny Johnson. “Fani is indicting Trump for the *exact* same thing.”
The daughter of a Black Panthers member, Willis’s insurrectionists ways for years have been coupled with her public embrace and advocacy for political terror groups like Black Lives Matter, and illegally using her public office for partisan Democrat advocacy.
Social media accounts attributed to Willis overflow with praises of far-left political agendas and cheerleading for radical leftist orthodoxies. The partisan trail was laid out in a brutally detailed Twitter thread posted hours before Trump was booked in Fulton County.
“On the eve of Trump’s arrest in Georgia for ‘challenging’ an election — a deep dive into the prosecutor’s history of doing the *same* thing,” wrote Johnson, a popular podcast host and comms chief at Turning Point USA.

Imagine thinking you’ll get “Justice” from a person with a “PROUD DEMOCRAT” mug displayed prominently in their public office.

Stretching back to Willis’s disputing Georgia’s 2018 election, her conspiracy campaigns continued through the 2020 tilt. The whole time, Johnson noted, “Fani Willis was either running for or serving in elected political office. Fani questioned elections for her own political gain as a hardened Democrat activist.”
Willis ran for a seat on the Fulton County Superior Court in the contentious 2018 midterm, which she lost. In the days following the election, Willis was on Facebook questioning whether all the votes had been counted and criticizing election officials for running a shoddy operation.
In one post, she blasted Fulton County commissioners for balking at a request that “all ballots in Fulton County be counted again to make sure all votes counted. The other commissioners sat silent. No other commissioner second his motion,” she fumed.
“Ask yourself why? You all better start paying attention to what is really going on instead of ‘reality tv’ and pay attention to reality,” she warned with a clear implication that some votes weren’t being counted. “#SMDH”
Willis’s comments questioning election integrity were especially egregious in the overall context of Georgia’s 2018 midterms, where she wasn’t the only losing Democrat on the ballot.
“We had this little election back in 2018,” failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said during her speech at the 2019 National Action Network convention. “And despite the final tally and the inauguration and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have one very affirmative statement to make. We won.”
Abrams lost to Brian Kemp, currently Georgia’s incumbent governor after his 2022 victory over Abrams.

The Georgia 2018 midterm also saw Republican Brad Raffensperger elected as secretary of state in a December runoff, a race very much on the mind of Willis at the time.
As Democrats sweated out the tight race on election night, Willis was already on social media pushing turnout for a runoff that would determine the person who “controls elections,” she wrote.
“How many of you will vote in a December run off? Secretary of State will definitely be on the ballot,” she predicted on Facebook. “That person controls elections. I wonder if we yet realize that is an important role? SMDH!”
After his 2018 victory, Raffensperger played a key role in the state’s 2020 election fiasco and would become an integral part of the ongoing Trump witch hunt led by Willis, who was elected Fulton County DA in 2020 and at the time blistered social media with challenges, concerns and criticisms about a flawed election.
When a news story broke on election night that a burst water pipe had interrupted ballot counting, Willis jumped on Facebook to question whether votes were being tossed and demand the Democrat lawfare machine swing into action.
“Georgia could determine who is our next president. A TEAM of lawyers needs to watch them count every single VOTE,” Willis wrote. “They can start in Fulton where we are having water leaks. What ballots are they throwing out? Georgia lets give an honest accounting. No stunts!”
Her RICO-worthy campaign didn’t stop on election night. As the confusion continued, Willis posted a meme on Facebook that shared Trump’s assessment that the election was a “mess.” In another post, Willis was again fostering conspiracy theories and agreeing with an election-agitator that polling data suggested “only white folk” are voting.
In a subsequent Facebook post, Fani Willis agrees with a racially-motivated commenter that “only white folk” are voting in the election by expressing skepticism in voting data by replying:
“There at like 116 percent. I am so annoyed. Where are we?”

Willis’s repeated public complaints and concerns about what she called an election “mess,” drew a damning comparison to one of the counts that she packed into her RICO charges against Trump.
When the former president exercised his right to free speech and in December 2020 tweeted “Georgia hearings now on @OANN. Amazing!” Willis’s indictment declared it was “an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.”
“If trump can be prosecuted for this social media post— why not Fani?” Johnson reasoned, and he wasn’t alone. “Fani Willis’ unmasked Facebook posts about the 2020 election were an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy,” wrote conservative commentator Danny DeUrbina.
More evidence for making that case can be found in another Willis post from 2020, where on Nov. 3 she confessed her fears that election officials had “messed it up,” Trending Politics’ Collin Rugg noted.
“Waiting for election results is like waiting for a grade on a group project,” Willis wrote. “I know I did my part right, but I’m scared yall messed it up.”
Four days later, when the election had been called for Biden, Willis “released multiple posts explaining how proud she was that Kamala Harris was the next vice president,” Rugg reported.
“The Vice President of the United States of America is an African American Woman and a Howard University Bison! #Tears #Proud,” Willis gushed in one post.
“Does anyone actually believe this woman has the ability to enforce the law equally and fairly?” Rugg asked about the partisan DA currently trying to imprison Trump for crimes she has a documented history of repeatedly violating.
“She was just protecting DEMOCRACY!”
