Fani Willis Disqualification Not Over Just Yet

Over the last few weeks, the big news on the Trump legal front was the motion to have Fulton County DA Fani Willis removed from the case.

After hearing arguments, Judge McAfee ruled that Willis could stay on the case, but only if she removed prosecutor Nathan Wade.

Wade resigned, so Willis was able to stay on, but that is now being challenged by Trump and his co-defendants in the case.

Fani Has to Go

There were more than a few groans let out when McAfee ruled that Willis could remain on the case, but the objections are not quite over just yet.

However, this will take some cooperation on the part of Judge McAfee.

For this motion, McAfee would have to grant the defense the ability to appeal his decision, and he must do that within 10 days of his ruling, and that has not yet happened.

Regardless, the co-defendants in the case have made it clear they would like him to reconsider his ruling.

Trump and several of his co-defendants have already filed a motion for the certificate of review, but, as noted above, we are still awaiting a decision from McAfee on the matter.

If he grants the motion, the likelihood of this case staying on track gets narrowed even further.

Many legal experts believe that the case in its current state may already not be heard before the general election takes place.

Willis’ case has already been hurt after McAfee dismissed six of the charges filed in the RICO case, three of them that were against Trump.

It was not even the charges being dismissed as much as it was the manner in which they were dismissed, with McAfee scolding Willis for not having presented the charges properly.

The only good news for Willis on this front was that McAfee left the door open for her to refile, even granting a six-month extension to the statute of limitations.
