Weeks ago, Palmer Report observed that the criminal cases against Donald Trump in Manhattan, New York and Fulton County, Georgia appeared to be speeding up in parallel, as if prosecutors were competing to see who would get to indict and arrest Trump first. Now we’re seeing what looks like almost outright confirmation that the race is on.

Earlier this week New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that she has “significant evidence” of asset valuation fraud on the part of Donald Trump and two of his kids. Since she’s also involved with the Manhattan District Attorney’s ongoing criminal case against Trump, it now seems a given that Trump will be criminally indicted in New York, and perhaps fairly soon.

Just a day and a half after that news broke, the Fulton County District Attorney formally filed to empanel a special grand jury in order to speed up her criminal probe against Donald Trump. There had been reports for several weeks that a special grand jury might happen. But given the timing, it appears that the news out of New York is what prompted her to go ahead with it.

   

We’ve long been wondering if prosecutors in New York and Georgia were each trying to be the first to indict Trump so they could get credit and make a claim to jurisdiction, or whether they were each hoping to go second so as to take the heat off them. Now it very much appears that prosecutors in both states are looking to indict Trump as quickly as they reasonably can.
