As Donald Trump was being booked and processed for a fourth time on a fourth indictment, this time in Georgia, old social media posts of DA Fani Willis emerged. What they contained provided a view into the rabid partisan nature and hypocrisy of the prosecutor now trying to put the former president behind bars.

Specifically, multiple posts show Willis spreading conspiracy theories about Georgia's elections. She even went so far as to claim there were "water leaks" during the 2020 election counting in Fulton County, suggesting that ballots were being thrown out. You'll probably remember that one because Republicans ended up adopting that theory as well in the aftermath of the election.

Look, I realize that the actual charges against Trump do not center on simply claiming the election was stolen (the RICO conspiracy supposedly leads to the alternate electors scheme), but anyone who can read the above post and not laugh has no sense of humor. Think about it. While Willis lectures Trump at press conferences about daring to tarnish the supposed sanctity of Georgia's elections, she was out there talking about busted water pipes and claiming the election might be stolen from Democrats. I mean, come on. You can't script irony any better than that.

There's more as well. Willis suggested several times in 2018 that election shenanigans were afoot.

Going back to her 2020 posts, Willis agreed with false racist claims that only "white people" were voting, suggesting that they make up "116 percent" of the voting pool. 

Are you starting to get a picture of who Willis is, yet? We aren't talking about some run-of-the-mill Democrat public servant. We are talking about a rabid partisan activist who has actively participated in the very things she denounces others for. That's who is leading the charge to jail a former president.

At least special counsel Jack Smith maintains some air of mystery about his political beliefs being a career DOJ official (though I think we can all guess what they are). By contrast, Willis' profile mimics parody. It's as if Salon created a prosecutor in a lab. 

With all that said, unfortunately, there is no prohibition on prosecutors being far-left hypocritical hacks. Perhaps there should be.
