The Jan 6 Georgia Connection (w/ Charlie Bailey)

Liz Cheney dropped one more nugget at the end of Tuesday’s January 6th Committee hearing, new evidence that Donald Trump may be contacting witnesses who are being called to testify in an apparent effort to influence what they might say. If true, it’s a federal crime. And Cheney’s statement that the Department of Justice had been alerted immediately set off speculation about another possible avenue for Attorney General Merrick Garland’s prosecutors to pursue. As the committee moves to wrap up its extraordinary series of hearings next week in primetime, the path to a possible prosecution of Donald Trump only seems to be expanding. Not just in Washington, but in Atlanta where Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is accelerating her own investigation. We’ll talk to someone who has their own unique perspective on the Willis probe, Charlie Bailey, a former prosecutor who used to work for Willis, and is now running for Lieutenant Governor against a Republican lawmaker deeply involved in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
