Trump Appeal for Fani Willis Removal Set for October

The battle between Fulton County DA Fani Willis and Donald Trump continues.

Even though Judge Scott McAfee ruled against Willis being removed from the case, he did leave the door open for Trump to appeal.

Trump has done just that, and now he has a court date for his appeal to be heard.

Let’s Dance

Trump and several co-defendants have argued that Willis should be removed due to a conflict of interest.

At the heart of the complaint is the fact that she hired her lover, attorney Nathan Wade, to the case, paying him more than double the rate that an expert RICO attorney was being paid.

The implication was clear… Willis was using the Trump case as a way to line Wade’s pockets.

With those two having been romantically linked, a case could be made that Willis would have benefited from that financial arrangement in the way of trips and gifts from Wade.

McAfee ruled that Willis could stay on the case, but only if Wade resigned, which he did, throwing a few shots on the way out the door.

Trump appealed, and he has been given a date of October 4 for the appeal. This will all but guarantee that the Willis case will not be inside a courtroom until after the election, if ever.

Trump attorney Steve Sadow stated, “President Trump’s interlocutory appeal was docketed today in the Georgia Court of Appeals, and oral argument is tentatively scheduled for October 4, 2024.”

He later added, “We look forward to presenting argument before Judges Brown, Markle, and Land on why this case should be dismissed and Fulton County DA Willis should be disqualified for the trial court’s acknowledged ‘odor of mendacity’ misconduct in violation of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct.”

Now, let’s see if the appeals court is the target of the same outrage as Judge Aileen Cannon for her delays in the classified documents case.

Trump has a legit beef here, but the courts being what they are, I have no idea if he will win this case.

Regardless, the appeal has served its purpose by keeping this case out of the courtroom until after the general election.
