Trump Appeals Ruling That Let Fani Willis Stay On Election Case

If former President Donald Trump has it his way, District Attorney Fani Willis may be KICKED OUT of his Georgia election interference case.

Not long ago, the scandal of Willis having an affair with her subordinate and fellow Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade broke the Internet.

They both should have been booted off the case.

Things didn't work out that way, though.

It all ended in a judge ruling that either Willis or Wade had to step down from the case.

It was up for Willis and Wade to decide who would go.

Wade decided to tender his resignation not long after.

Willis delivered a statement on the news of Wade’s resignation that thanked him for his courageous decision to quit.

Needless to say, the district attorney likely thought she was out of the woods when it came to facing the consequences of her actions.

Trump, however, had other plans in mind.

The former president has now filed an appeal to fight the ruling that allowed Willis to stay on the case.

“The trial court was bound by existing case law to not only require Wade's disqualification (which occurred) but also to require the disqualification of DA Willis and her entire office. The trial court's failure to do so is plain legal error requiring reversal,” Trump’s filing explained.

While we do not know when Trump’s filing will be addressed, the judge on the case, Scott McAfee, has provided next steps for the case.

“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,” said McAfee.

According to former prosecutor Chris Timmons “the law of disqualification is well-settled, and the judge has a ton of discretion in making findings and crafting remedies in that area. So that should mean no appeal.”

“But I've seen appellate courts create new law in political cases,” stated Timmons.

We have no other information at this time.

How do you think the judge will respond to Trump’s filing?
