The Daily Caller News Foundation has discovered that top officials at the Georgia DA’s office donated thousands to Democrat campaigns. 

Kevin Armstrong is interim legal counsel for Georgia DA Fani Willis, who is prosecuting President Trump over his attempts to investigate questionable events surrounding the 2020 presidential election. Armstrong has donated thousands in contributions to Democrat campaigns.

Among the various Democrat candidates he financially supported, Armstrong reportedly donated to Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 presidential campaign and gave money to known election denier Stacy Abrams.

Executive District Attorney for the Trial Division, George Jenkins, is another Georgia DA official who made numerous donations to democrats in recent years. DCNF reports that he donated over $8 thousand to state candidates, including more than $2,500 to Willis herself. 

Further, Breitbart reported that Willis recently began her reelection campaign just before indicting Trump. The Trump campaign decried Willis as a “rabid partisan who is campaigning and fundraising on a platform of prosecuting President Donald Trump through these bogus indictments.”

Willis has previously displayed a personal conflict of interest on the job. In 2022, she targeted current Georgia Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones while fundraising for his opponent. Fulton County Judge Robert McBurney banned her from investigating Jones, and he won his race. 

Now, Republican leaders are questioning Willis and her team’s motives behind their prosecution of President Trump. 

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., posted to X on Monday stating that she is “attacking President Trump and using it to fundraise her political career.”

Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., agreed, adding, “Georgia DA Fani Willis is willing to chill free speech and criminalize the practice of law to pursue this sham indictment in a blatant attempt to further her political career.”

“Rogue prosecutors have twisted the arm of justice to the point where it has all but snapped off,” she continued.
