Georgia Court Gives New Explanation for Premature Trump Document Release, Blames ‘Test’ Gone Wrong

A document outlining charges against former President Donald Trump that came out hours before his official indictment is being called a “fictitious document” and a “sample” that made it to the internet as a “test,” according to Georgia court officials. On Monday, hours before a Fulton County grand jury indicted Trump, a document was posted outlining 13 charges against the former president. Trump was later indicted on 11 charges. In a statement issued by the Trump campaign, attorneys Drew Findling and Jennifer Little said the incident was typical of what Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is all about. “The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has once again shown that they have no respect for the integrity of the grand jury process,” the statement said, according to The Hill. “This was not a simple administrative mistake.” “This is emblematic of the pervasive and glaring constitutional violations which have plagued this case from its very inception,” the statement said. According to a statement issued by the court, attributed to the Office of the Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts, the document that went flying across media outlets and social media was a “sample working document.” “In anticipation of issues that arise with entering a potentially large indictment, Alexander used charges that pre-exist in Odyssey to test the system and conduct a trial run,” the statement said, referring to Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts, Ché Alexander. “Unfortunately, the sample working document led to the docketing of what appeared to be an indictment, but which was, in fact, only a fictitious docket sheet,” the statement said, adding that Alexander had the document removed and — hours before the actual indictment was handed up — said no indictment had been issued. “Because the media has access to documents before they are published, and while it may have appeared that something official had occurred because the document bore a case number and filing date, it did not include a signed ‘true’ or ‘no’ bill nor an official stamp with Clerk Alexander’s name, thereby making the document unofficial and a test sample only,” the statement said. However, The Hill noted that the “sample working indictment” included charges that were the actual indictment. “The Office understands the confusion that this matter caused and the sensitivity of all court filings. We remain committed to operating with an extreme level of efficiency, accuracy, and transparency,” the statement said. When Willis was asked about the initial document Monday, she replied, “No, I can’t tell you anything about what you refer to,” according to Fox News. “What I can tell you is that we had a grand jury here in Fulton County. They deliberated till almost 8 o’clock, if not right after 8 o’clock, an indictment was returned. It was true billed. And you now have an indictment,” she said.
Trump had his own blistering reaction to the “sample” document’s release.
“The Grand Jury testimony has not even FINISHED — but it’s clear the District Attorney has already decided how this case will end,” Trump wrote in a fund-raising email, according to The Associated Press. “They are trying to rob me of my right to due process. This is an absolute DISGRACE.”
