Georgia prosecutor Fani T. Willis has announced remote work days for most of her staff during the first three weeks of August, asking judges in a downtown Atlanta courthouse not to schedule trials for part of that time as she prepares to bring charges in the Trump inquiry. Willis outlined the remote work plan and made the request to 21 Fulton County officials in a letter sent on Thursday.
She had said in a previous letter that any charges related to the Trump investigation would come in the grand jury term that runs from July 11 to September. The Fulton County District Attorney's office has signaled that charges in the 2020 election inquiry may come in the final week of July, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.
The indication came during a meeting with her full team, where she told them to make preparations to work remotely during the final weeks of July and through the first weeks of August. The timing is understood to reflect the expected window for indictments after previous indications suggested charging decisions would come during court term running from July through September.
A special grand jury in Atlanta heard evidence for roughly seven months recommended charges against more than a dozen individuals, including former President Donald Trump himself; however, Willis will have seek indictments from regular grand juries instead. The investigation has been ongoing for two years and includes calls made by Trump administration officials like Secretary Brad Raffensperger seeking efforts aimed at overturning his electoral defeat along with assembling false electors.

Security concerns and recent cooperation deals are significant factors in pushing back Willis' timeline for announcing possible charges in her ongoing investigation. Potential conspiracy and racketeering charges may allow her to bring cases against multiple defendants involved.
The prosecutor's letter also asked for several remote days for staff members during the first three weeks of August, reducing the number of employees present at Fulton County Courthouse and Government Center by approximately 70%. The grand jury has reportedly recommended multiple indictments related to conspiracy or racketeering, with indications that former President Trump himself could be among potential defendants. Trump lawyers previously requested Judge Robert McBurney quash these findings on March 20th, citing an "illegal and unconstitutional process."
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) requested judges avoid scheduling trials and hearings requiring appearances from her staff during first half of August—a move signaling she might bring charges against former President Trump around this timeframe. She also indicated about 70 percent of her workforce would work remotely on various days throughout August.
