Judge's Ruling Could Be a Problem for Georgia DA

Judge Scott McAfee of Fulton County Superior Court issued a ruling on a motion made by Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell.

These two refused to waive their right to a speedy trial, so they will head to court on October 23.

They were technically dealt a loss in the ruling, but there was something the judge noted that could be a problem for Fulton County DA Fani Willis.


Chesebro and Powell had asked for separate trials, which was the motion that was defeated.

However, in his ruling, Judge McAfee stated that his ruling “is contingent on the case remaining in state court — a situation that could change if other defendants succeed at moving the case into a federal courtroom," reported the New York Times.

This could become a major problem for Willis on two different fronts.

First, the fact that co-defendants are already being separated is not good for the case.

If you have 19 people who were allegedly conspiring together, warranting RICO charges, and cases started to get separated, well, you can see where this is leading.

Secondly, the fact that Judge McAfee brought that up means that he believes removing these cases from Fulton County could be a very real possibility.

If that happens, this becomes an absolute disaster for Willis.

That is the approach that Mark Meadows has taken, hoping he can get a change of venue where he believes he can have the charges dismissed outright.

Willis expects the trial portion of the case to take about four months, as prosecutors expect to call about 150 witnesses in the case.

Now, that does not include jury selection, so we are realistically talking about five months here.

Thus far, McAfee seems like a reasonable judge, which is to Trump's benefit, but he will still have to overcome a biased jury pool, which is the biggest concern of all.

Willis' case is garbage, but that means nothing when the jury has made up its mind before the trial has even started.
