Ramped up security outside the Fulton County courthouse in Georgia is the latest sign that former President Trump may soon face a fourth indictment.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating Trump for his efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results, and she has indicated she will make an announcement sometime this month.
Officers from multiple police departments were present outside the courthouse Tuesday, along with a bomb-sniffing dog for media vehicles, according to NBC News.
The street outside the courthouse has also been closed off with barriers.

Ramped up security outside the Fulton County courthouse in Georgia is the latest sign that former President Donald Trump may soon face a fourth indictment.
Willis notified area judges and law enforcement in May that she planned to present her case to a grand jury in the first half of August.
“I respectfully request that judges not schedule trials and in person hearings during the weeks beginning Monday, August 7 and Monday, August 14,” Willis wrote in a letter to the chief district judge, according to NBC.

If the grand jury hands down an indictment, it will be the fourth for the former president and the second related to the 2020 election. Trump currently faces charges for making hush payments to a porn star, mishandling classified documents, and attempting to overturn the 2020 election in Washington, D.C.

“We’re ready,” Willis told FOX 5 Atlanta on Thursday. “We’re concentrating on Georgia and things that impacted Georgia.”
“The oath requires that I follow the law, that if someone broke the law in Fulton County, Georgia, then I have a duty to prosecute,” she continued.
Willis first opened her investigation into Trump more than two years ago after the 2020 election. According to The Associated Press, Willis’ team is investigating Trump and his associates for potential violations of the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
