Atlanta prosecutor asks FBI for security after Trump’s remarks at Texas rally

Atlanta’s top prosecutor who’s probing possible election interference by former President Donald Trump in Georgia says she’s requested enhanced security from the FBI after remarks that Trump made at a rally over the weekend.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis sent a letter to J.C. Hacker, the head of the FBI’s Atlanta field office, asking him to carry out a risk assessment of the county courthouse and nearby government buildings after Trump urged supporters to target her for large-scale protests, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WXIA-TV reported.

“We must work together to keep the public safe and ensure that we do not have a tragedy in Atlanta similar to what happened at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021,” she told Hacker.
