Those who underestimate DA Fani Willis do so at their own risk: I'm looking at you Meadows & Chesebro.

Meadows asks for a delay in surrendering himself in Atlanta because he is so sure a judge will agree to move the proceedings to a Federal court and ultimately drop the charges because he was only doing his job.

“I am not granting any extensions,” Willis wrote back to Meadows’ lawyers, per the court filing. “I gave 2 weeks for people to surrender themselves to the court. Your client is no different than any other criminal defendant in this jurisdiction. The two weeks was a tremendous courtesy. At 12:30 pm on Friday I shall file warrants in the system. ”

Meadows and his co-defendant, Jeffrey Clark, a former assistant attorney general, say their federal jobs provide immunity from state-level criminal charges. Meadows asked U.S. District Judge Steve Jones to move his case to federal court or stop Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from arresting him.

DA Willis responded almost immediately in her filing: Meadows “can offer no plausible federal defense,” and his arranging Trump’s call with Watson “was clearly political activity prohibited by the Hatch Act.” further she writes that at no point did Trump or Meadows “cite or acknowledge any federal authority concerning the topics discussed.” Her detailed filing point by point shutting down Meadows must have been sitting in her draft folder because as soon as Meadows played this move to Federal Court card she must have hit the send key. She and her team are way ahead of Meadows and his co-indicted idiots. She also eviscerated Chesebro calling out his Federal and State legal understanding incompetence

Now Chesebro asked for a speedy trial and stated he would be ready October 23.

DA Willis saw his bet and raised him one by asking the Judge to schedule the trial for all 19 defendants on that date. So far the Judge has only agreed on the date for Chesebro.

This smart, no-nonsense, woman is not to be underestimated by anyone. Anyone includes news personalities and pundits.

Edited to add: Weiss says the judge would not be there if there were no indictments.
