CNN: Fani Willis Case Going Nowhere

It is not often that we hear something positive about Donald Trump on CNN, so when it does happen, it is very much news.

In this case, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, himself a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, criticized the case of Fani Willis against Trump.

According to Toobin, her case is going “nowhere.”

Give It Up

When the presiding judge dropped six counts in the case, it was a massive slap in the face of Fulton County DA Fani Willis.

It was not so much the charges being dismissed as the statement by the judge dismissing them.

Judge McAfee slammed Willis for not properly presenting the charges, although he did leave the door open for her to represent the charges.

On top of that, Willis was given the choice of either removing prosecutor Nathan Wade or herself from the case after McAfee heard the details of her salacious relationship with Wade.

After McAfee tore into Willis, Toobin stated, “Today was a very good day for Donald Trump. This case is going nowhere.

He continued, “Even if in the extremely unlikely event that this somehow staggers to trial in August or in the fall. Think about this.

“There’s another racketeering case in Georgia where jury selection, not the trial jury, its selection, has taken a year. This case is never going to trial before the election.

“This case is never going to trial before the election. It’s an embarrassment. All of this. Fani Willis has hung on, but this case going nowhere very quickly.”

If I had to rank this case among the four federal indictments, it would be tied 3a with Alvin Bragg’s stacked charges case being 3b.

I thought Willis was overzealous in presenting her charges, as was Bragg, and Judge McAfee’s statement has proven me right.

That, of course, means nothing if there is a biased jury sitting in the box, but it does not diminish the fact that Willis has prepared a sloppy case.

I tend to agree with Toobin now that it is unlikely we will see this case inside a courtroom before the election, if ever.
