Court Agrees to Hear Appeal to Disqualify Fani Willis from Trump Case

The saga of embattled Fulton County DA Fani Willis is not over quite yet.

An appeals court ruling has put her back in the spotlight.

On Wednesday, a Georgia appellate court agreed to hear arguments to disqualify Willis from the case she filed against Donald Trump.

Let’s Hear It

When the motion was originally heard by Judge McAfee, the presiding judge in the case, he found that the defense failed to prove that Willis personally financially benefitted from the case, therefore, she was permitted to remain.

However, McAfee did rule that Nathan Wade, who had an affair with Willis, would have to resign from the case in order for Willis to remain.

While Willis may not have directly benefitted from the case, Wade surely did, as Willis was paying him far more than an experienced RICO specialist that she brought in for the case.

In his ruling, McAfee stated, "It is the [judge's] opinion that Georgia law does not permit the finding of an actual conflict for simply making bad choices -- even repeatedly.”

With the appeals court now accepting the case, it likely means the case will never see the inside of a courtroom before the end of the year.

Trump attorney Steve Sadow stated that his team is looking forward to disqualifying Willis "for her misconduct in this unjustified, unwarranted political persecution."

However, they do not need to win this case for it to help Trump.

With the appeals court accepting the case, arguments will have to be scheduled, then the court will have to release its decision.

This will likely drag out for months, as Trump’s team will make sure to overload the court with motions to continue to delay the case for as long as possible.

If I am right about this, of the four indictments, the only case that will come to fruition by election day will be the Bragg case, which even if Trump loses, I fully expect him to prevail on appeal.

This means the Democrat effort to remove Trump from the picture via these indictments will have failed because you know if Trump wins, the first thing his attorney general will be doing is dismissing all charges against Trump.
