Trump conviction could help Fani Willis with ‘aura of invincibility’ shattered

Don­ald Trump’s crim­i­nal con­vic­tion by a New York jury could aid Ful­ton Coun­ty Dis­trict Attor­ney Fani Willis’s elec­tion inter­fer­ence case against the for­mer pres­i­dent.
“When we think about the con­vic­tion of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, it doesn’t have a direct effect on the president’s tri­al in Geor­gia,” legal expert John Aceve­do said in a state­ment to the Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er. “How­ev­er, it will have a psy­cho­log­i­cal impact on both Fani Willis and her team, as well as poten­tial jurors.”
The pro­fes­sor at the Emory Uni­ver­si­ty School of Law explained the basis for his view­point, say­ing, “Because, for both groups, they do not have to be the ones to open the door of con­vict­ing the for­mer pres­i­dent, because the door has already been opened. And in that sense, it has been done, will be done, and there­fore removes the mys­tique and invul­ner­a­bil­i­ty of Mr. Trump him­self and any for­mer pres­i­dent.”
