Former Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill has a new job as the lead on the legal team in a fake grand jury to investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to the organizing group’s website.
The Daily Beast first reported Wednesday about the right-wing-conservative-led organization called “America’s Grand Jury,” and named Hill as one of its leaders. The group is charging people—from $25 up to $10,000—to become a juror, its website says.
America’s Grand Jury did not immediately return requests for comment on Wednesday. Hill could not immediately be reached for comment at the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a Washington, D.C., think tank, where he is a senior fellow.
From April 11 to April 15, America’s Grand Jury says on its website that it will hold live-streamed presentations of Fauci’s fake prosecution with evidence and witness testimony from prominent COVID-19 vaccine opponents, including Dr. Robert Malone and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
The paying members of the mock grand jury will then vote on whether to “indict” Fauci—a move that has no real legal power. Fauci is head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and guided the initial pandemic response under former President Donald Trump.
Hill is listed as one of two attorneys leading the prosecution in the “Team Bios” page on the group’s website. He has also been promoted on its social media and promotional videos as leading the legal team.
“America’s Grand Jury” posted a photo of Hill on social media Wednesday, with a quote credited to him reading, “Even though America’s Grand Jury is a mock investigation into Fauci and the government agencies overseeing our nation’s health services, the evidence gathered is factual information and will be presented for real world application of the law.”
Joining Hill on the legal team is Parisa Fishback, a California attorney who has also formed a group to fight against COVID-19 vaccine mandates in California, according to the event’s website and social media posts.
Hill has, until recently, kept a relatively low profile since he lost his re-election bid at the 2020 Indiana GOP convention, when Republicans selected Attorney General Todd Rokita as their nominee. He had lost favor with the Indiana Republican Party following allegations in 2018 that he drunkenly groped four women at a legislative party. Hill denied wrongdoing, but the Indiana Supreme Court suspended his law license for 30 days.
