Georgia prosecutor reports racist threats over Trump case

A Georgia prosecutor has reported receiving racist threats and abuse as she decides whether to charge former US President Donald Trump.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has been investigating Mr. Trump for alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 US election.

On Monday, Mr. Trump's legal team unsuccessfully requested she be disqualified from the case.

A grand jury vote is expected soon on possible criminal charges.

According to the BBC, in a letter seen by its US partner CBS, Ms. Willis warned local officials to "stay alert" this month as the decision looms.

Ms. Willis, a Democrat, cited a recent email in which she was subject to racist and sexist language and told she will fail.

She said the letter was "pretty typical" of correspondence she has received.

Ms. Willis also noted there have also been threatening phone calls to her office that were similar in nature.
