Elie Honig, a former federal prosecutor and now a media legal analyst, told a podcast this week that federal special counsel Jack Smith already charged the former president with alleged election-related offenses "and in seven states in particular, including Georgia."
Notably, Mr. Honig, a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, has been publicly critical of the former president, and he is now a senior legal analyst for CNN. He's also penned a critical book about former Trump Attorney General William Barr called "Hatchet Man."
He asked whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' indictment is for the "greater good and why is it promoting public confidence in the fairness of this [process] to have one of those seven state prosecutors pile on with a charge of her own? I don't think it serves any greater good," he stated, adding that Ms. Willis indicted him on partisan grounds.
