(USA Features) Legal experts are picking up on “signs” that former President Donald Trump may soon face subpoenas and even indictments stemming from investigations in New York and Georgia, the Washington Examiner reported Tuesday.
John Banzhaf, a public interest attorney based in Washington, D.C., who helped spur the election interference investigation in Georgia, noted that the case there is intensifying, the outlet reported, adding that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is having difficulty obtaining documents from GOP Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who reportedly is “lawyering up.”

Willis, meanwhile, has hired a special prosecutor who played a role in the 1990s “Whitewater” case against then-President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton.
In addition, Banzhaf said that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. added a forensic accountant to his staff investigating past financial deals and taxes involving Trump and his businesses.
“In both cases, the political geography doesn’t favor former President Donald Trump,” the Examiner reported, citing Banzhaf, who said Vance is not running for another term and thus he “just might want to end his illustrious career with a bang.”
In Georgia, Banzhaf said Willis “is a Democrat in a heavily Democratic county.”
“Therefore, most members of a grand jury, and of any criminal trial juries in this county, are likely to be very unfriendly to Trump, especially now that he has lost a lot of his clout and his ability to reach out easily on social media with most of his followers,” the attorney added, according to the Examiner.
Banzhaf, over the weekend, also pointed to additional potential legal troubles for Trump. The federal General Services Agency agreed to hand over records sought by House Transportation Committee Chair Peter DeFazio regarding the Trump International Hotel lease of the Old Post Office Building in D.C.
Also, Trump’s former White House lawyer has said he will appear before a congressional investigating committee.
“So there’s ever-growing evidence that the noose is tightening around Trump, and that a criminal indictment against him is increasingly likely,” said Banzhaf, according to the Examiner.
