Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, informed Charlie Kirk that a reliable source had informed him that District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County received a phone call from Washington D.C. on Friday urging her to indict President Trump by Monday in order to conceal the mistakes concerning Weiss-Hunter Biden.
Subsequently, Willis has brought RICO and conspiracy charges against President Trump and 18 others for contesting the results of the 2020 election.
On Monday, a Fulton County grand jury returned a 41-count indictment, including charges of racketeering and conspiracy, against Trump.
This came after 10 witnesses gave testimony to the grand jury on that same day. The swiftness of this process has raised concerns regarding its fairness and legitimacy.
Newt Gingrich raised concerns that the Fulton County Clerk had posted Trump’s charges online before the grand jury had deliberated, saying that someone had called District Attorney Fani Willis demanding she bring the grand jurors in on Monday afternoon to indict Trump later that evening.
“I am told by a reliable source that Friday evening that somebody from Washington called the District Attorney from Atlanta and said ‘you have to indict on Monday – we have to cover up all the mistakes we just made with Weiss,’ and she said apparently, ‘my jurors aren’t coming back until Tuesday,’ and they said ‘you didn’t hear me, you have to indict on Monday,’ and she said, ‘They’re not going to be here before noon…this means it’s going to be 8 or 9 or 10 o’clock at night!’” Newt told Charlie Kirk.
Charlie Kirk asked Newt Gingrich who made the phone call to Fani Willis.
“We don’t know,” Newt Gingrich said. “And I’m telling you upfront, this is hearsay, but it’s from a person who has remarkably good sources.”
“I totally believe it though because that would explain why they leaked and they messed up on the clerk documents, why [Fani Willis] was exhausted and why they had the 11 pm press conference!” Charlie Kirk said.
Speaker Newt Gingrich joined me this morning and shared a remarkable story. If true, someone from DC called Fani Willis and demanded she indict Trump on Monday. Why? To cover up for the Weiss "screw up."

On Friday, US Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of David Weiss, US Attorney for Delaware, as Special Counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation.
Weiss had requested special counsel status in the case.
Garland refused to answer any questions following the blunder by Weiss.
According to Newt Gingrich, a Washington D.C. individual gave orders for Trump to be indicted come Monday in an effort to divert attention away from Hunter Biden’s criminal activities and the Department of Justice’s attempted cover-up.
This appears to be a trend with the Biden Administration; every time Joe and Hunter Biden’s alleged offenses are brought into the public eye, Jack Smith or Marxist prosecutors seek out an indictment of President Trump.
