Fani Willis Wiki – Fani Willis Bio
Fani Willis is a Georgia Prosecutor, who is investigating Donald Trump for possible election tampering.
Donald Trump may well be acquitted for a second time on impeachment charges this week, but that may not be the end of the former president’s legal problems.
ms. Willis, the newly elected Fulton Country district attorney, has opened a criminal investigation into Trump, looking into the allegation that he illegally tried to alter the outcome of Georgia’s votes in the 2020 presidential election.
Her age is unclear.
Fani Willis Investigating Donald Trump Election Tampering
The initial investigation will focus on a phone call that Trump placed to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2nd, during which Trump pleaded with him to “find” enough votes to overturn his narrow defeat in the state.
Over the objections of Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, who repeatedly stated that Joe Biden had won the state and there was absolutely no evidence of election fraud, the former president got increasingly irritated and pushed Raffensperger to find a way to reverse his loss.
"Whether there was an impeachment or not an impeachment would not change the fact that something occurred here within my jurisdiction that may be criminal. And if that is the case, it needed to be investigated."

“So look,” Trump told him on the phone call. “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”
She spoke with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow late Thursday to elaborate on her plans, which could involve witness subpoenas as soon as March when the Fulton County grand jury convenes.
Willis said that while the investigation centres on Trump’s extraordinary call demanding that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger “find” enough votes to reverse his election defeat, it “seems that it will go past just this one phone call.”
Willis said she’s been subjected to an avalanche of racist threats since the news broke on Wednesday, but that brushed them off as “foolishness.”
She also described her strategy, honed by roughly two decades as a prosecutor.
“What I know about investigations is they’re kind of like peeling back an onion. And as you go through each layer, you learn different things.
To be a responsible prosecutor, you must look at all those things in an investigation, to be fair to everyone involved.”
