MAGA Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has spoken out against Fani Willis, the Georgia district attorney who has indicted Donald Trump and 18 others for conspiring to overturn his 2020 defeat in the state. Greene said the prosecutor should be going after rapists instead of the former president.
The only problem there is that her plea could potentially include Trump, however unlikely. The former president was found by a Manhattan jury to have sexually abused writer E. Jean Carroll in the 1990s, despite the fact that Carroll failed to prove that she was “raped” within the meaning of the New York penal law.
However, a New York judge later dismissed a counterclaim by Trump against Carroll when she repeated the allegation that Trump raped her, saying that her words were “substantially true.”
“Mr Trump in fact did ‘rape’ Ms Carroll as that term commonly is used and understood in contexts outside of the New York penal law,” Lewis A. Kaplan wrote, setting out in detail why it could be said in common parlance that Trump “raped” her. However, there is no suggestion that Trump could face criminal charges over the incident.
At least 19 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.
All of this seemed to have escaped Trump diehard Greene as she blathered on about the fourth indictment against Trump ― the second for plotting to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.
Greene criticized the crime rate of Atlanta (which is in Fulton County) and said the state of Georgia was rife with predators and traffickers.
