Fani Willis Begs Court to Toss Trump’s Bid to Oust Her

'[Willis's motion is a] last ditch effort to stop any appellate review of DA Willis' misconduct...'

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s Office filed a motion in Georgia’s Appeal Court on June 12, 2024, to throw out Donald Trump’s motion to remove Willis from one of his witchhunts, his Georgia 2020 election case.

Willis argued that she should remain a lead prosecutor in the case because her secret lover Nathan Wade resigned as special prosecutor after Judge Scott McAfee decided in March that only one could remain on the case, the New York Post reported.

“[Willis’s motion is a] last ditch effort to stop any appellate review of DA Willis’ misconduct,” Trump’s legal team said.

In court documents, Willis argued that McAfee’s “concern with any potential ‘questions’ stemmed from Wade’s continued presence in the case, a concern that was addressed when Wade withdrew.”

The court filings said the defendants’ “remaining evidence… relates to possible concerns about future appearances of impropriety that can no longer even come to pass.”

After hearing conflict of interest arguments about their secret romantic relationship, McAfee became highly critical of Willis and Wade.

Willis hired Wade as a special prosecutor on the 2020 election case against Trump and 18 co-defendants, in which they have been accused of attempting to overturn state election results.

It was later revealed that Willis financially benefitted from dating Wade, who treated her to exotic vacations after getting a high salary on the case. As expected, Willis and Wade refuted the allegations.

The arguments supporting the motion to disqualify her were rendered “a room without walls” after McAfee disregarded the testimony of star witness Terrance Bradley, Wade’s former law partner and divorce attorney, because he was concerned about Bradley’s credibility, Willis’s office said.

Steve Sadow, Trump’s lawyer, slammed the district attorney’s motion and said it was “a last-ditch effort to stop any appellate review of DA Willis’ misconduct.”

He then said the State’s motion deliberately failed to mention that McAfee’s ruling stated an “order of mendacity remains” from the hearing testimony by the DA and the State’s witnesses.

The judge also said there were “reasonable questions” whether Willis and Wade testified untruthfully.
