Rudy Giuliani blasts ruling allowing Fani Willis to remain on GA election interference case

Fulton County, Georgia, Judge Scott McAfee ruled on Friday that embattled D.A. Fani Willis can remain involved in the election interference prosecution of former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants, and among those taking aim at the decision is Rudy Giuliani, who is also facing charges in the matter, as Newsweek reports.

In his ruling, McAfee provided that despite his serious concerns about her conduct and perhaps even her honesty, Willis could continue her role in the Trump case, provided that special prosecutor Nathan Wade, with whom the district attorney had a romantic relationship that formed the basis of requests for their disqualification, stepped aside, something he did later that same day.

Giuliani takes aim

As one of 18 co-defendants in the Georgia election interference case, Giuliani had a vested interest in the outcome of the Willis disqualification controversy, and he has registered his disapproval of the manner in which the controversy was resolved.

During an appearance on Newsmax, the former New York City mayor and onetime Trump attorney held nothing back in his assessment of McAfee and his ruling.

“This is absurd. This judge is a disgrace, he's an absolute disgrace,” said Giuliani.

He went on to include discussion of Willis' own conduct during the disqualification hearing process and the judge's reaction to it, saying, “This woman committed perjury right in front of him....what kind of sissy boy is he? The woman made a fool out of him, treated him like garbage.”

Giuliani did not leave things there, adding of McAfee, “This judge has so little regard for the law.”

Not alone

It was not just Giuliani who expressed strong disapproval of McAfee's approach to Willis and Wade, with Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz also appearing on Newsmax to make his opinion known.

“I think the result is utterly dishonest. Everybody knows...that she profited...that she conspired to commit perjury with Nathan Wade and with the other witness,” Dershowitz said.

He went on, “We all know there was an actual conflict of interest here. [McAfee] just doesn't have the guts to say it. And I predicted he wouldn't have the guts to say it. He has to live in Fulton County.”

The longtime constitutional scholar added that “there was an actual conflict” present in the case and said, “I hope that the defendants will appeal this, and I think they can.”

Though his frustration with the ruling was likely grounded in very different reasons than that of Dershowitz, former federal prosecutor and MSNBC contributor Andrew Weissmann suggested that Willis' continued presence on the case after the “almost fatal body blow” contained in McAfee's remarks about her actions could prove fatal to the case against Trump, someone he desperately wants to see convicted ahead of November.
