Fani Willis Ignores Judge’s Order to Discuss Trump Case

Fulton County DA Fani Willis dodged a bullet recently.

Trump and some of his co-defendants were trying to have Willis removed from the case due to a relationship she had with one of her prosecutors.

She was permitted to remain on the case, but she was also ordered to refrain from publicly speaking out about the case by Judge McAfee, an order which she has now defied.

Speaking Out

As soon as the motions were made against Willis, she, the media, and her allies all tried to claim this was about race.

Willis claimed they were going after her because she was a black woman, which had nothing at all to do with the basis of the suit.

They wanted her removed because she hired a prosecutor for the case with whom she was having an affair.

The narrative was that the prosecutor, Nathan Wade, was more or less given an outcome and told to work the case backward to support that outcome.

Judge McAfee ultimately ruled that as long as Wade was removed, and he soon thereafter resigned, Willis could stay on the case.

However, he noted that in a January speech that Willis had given, she pushed the narrative that she was being ousted because of race, then he ordered her not to do the same in public again.

In his ruling, McAfee stated, "In these public and televised comments, the District Attorney complained that a Fulton County Commissioner 'and so many others' questioned her decision to hire SADA Wade.

“When referring to her detractors throughout the speech, she frequently utilized the plural 'they.'

“The State argues the speech was not aimed at any of the Defendants in this case. Maybe so. But maybe not. Therein lies the danger of public comment by a prosecuting attorney,"

Willis disregarded that order on Friday during an appearance at the South Fulton Women of the Shield Awards.

She stated, "It's hard out here always having to prove yourself two and three times.

“Recently, they tell me, they don't like me to talk about race. Well, I'm going to talk about it anyway.

“Truth is, there's some challenges that come with being Black.

“And I see so much greatness in this city that has so many great African American leaders.

“And I appreciate all of the sacrifice that you all have had to make to be in these positions."

As of yet, no trial date has been set for the Georgia election fraud-RICO case, but if Willis gets removed, the chances of this case being tried before the election grow slimmer.

Currently, the only firm court date that Trump has is the Alvin Bragg hush-money case, which is headed to the courtroom later this month.
