Trump Appeal of Fani Willis Disqualification Will Be Permitted

Most of us were disappointed when Judge McAfee made his ruling in the Fani Willis disqualification hearing.

This, of course, included Donald Trump and his co-defendants.

Some good news came in on this front, as Judge McAfee has approved the grant to file an appeal to review his decision.

Try Again

McAfee seemed pretty iffy throughout this hearing, so we figured he would disqualify someone from the case.

Eventually, he ruled that Willis could stay on the case as long as prosecutor Nathan Wade was removed (Wade was the attorney with whom Willis had an affair).

That decision immediately came under fire due to allegations that Willis had lied under oath.

However, as we stated, McAfee did not seem sold on the ruling, so he granted the Defense the opportunity to file for the grant, which he approved for the appeal.

Trump attorney Steve Sadow was quick to react to the decision by McAfee.

He stated, “The defense is optimistic that appellate review will lead to the case being dismissed and the DA being disqualified.”

Sadow further stated, “It means the defense is permitted to apply to the Georgia Court of Appeals for pretrial review of the Judge’s order refusing to dismiss the case or disqualify Fulton County DA Willis.”

We should note, however, that McAfee is pushing to get this case into his courtroom, regardless of what happens on the Willis front.

He stated, “The Court intends to continue addressing the many other unrelated pending pretrial motions, regardless of whether the petition is granted within 45 days of filing, and even if any subsequent appeal is expedited by the appellate court.”

I do have to say, of all the “unfriendly” judges that Trump has encountered during these legal issues, McAfee has been relatively fair and open to these motions that have been shut down by other judges.

My question, however, is how much of a delay will McAfee allow if Willis is removed from the case and it is turned over to a new DA.

That would seem to be the only thing standing in the way of this case going to court before the general election.
