  • DA Fani Willis appealing RICO judge’s dismissal of multiple charges against Trump and Giuliani as former president tries to oust her from case

    While Donald Trump mounts an interlocutory appeal that he hopes will end with Fulton County DA Fani Willis’ (D) disqualification from prosecuting him, Willis is challenging the dismissal of several charges against the former president and his allies. In a Thursday filing in Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee’s court, Willis filed her notice of “cross appeal” to overturn the judge’s March 13 ruling favorable to the defense — this, as the defense guns for the DA’s ouster. “The state’s cross appeal corresponds to the Defendants’ interlocutory appeal of this Court’s ‘ORDER ON DEFENDANTS’ MOTION TO DISMISS AND DISQUALIFY...

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis appealed on Thursday a Georgia judge’s decision to dismiss six charges lodged at former President Donald Trump and his allies. Willis asked the Georgia Court of Appeals to reverse Judge Scott McAfee’s decision to throw out the charges, including three against Trump, that were part of her 41-count election interference case against Trump and his co-defendants. In March, McAfee dismissed six of the charges saying that Willis had not been specific enough. “As written, these six counts contain all the essential elements of the crimes but fail to allege sufficient detail regarding the nature...
  • Fani Willis suffers new blow as Georgia court allows Donald Trump's appeal to remove the Fulton County DA from his election fraud case

    The Georgia Court of Appeals has given a green light to Donald Trump's case to remove Fani Willis from his election fraud trial in the latest blow to the Fulton County DA. Willis has courted controversy while prosecuting the county's election interference case against Trump after it was revealed she had a past relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade. She escaped with just a slap on the wrist after Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee dramatically ruled she could stay on the Trump election interference case if Wade removed himself. Trump and eight of his co-defendants charged in the Georgia state...

    The Georgia Court of Appeals has agreed to review former President Donald Trump's application to appeal Judge Scott McAfee's ruling to keep embattled Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis on the case. Judge McAfee's order in March said that special prosecutor Nathan Wade had to be removed in order to keep Willis from disqualification in the Trump election interference case in Georgia. Willis and Wade were alleged to have had an "improper" affair. Trump and several co-defendants alleged Willis and Wade were romantically involved prior to his hiring and that she financially benefited from the relationship. Both Willis and Wade...

    On Friday, Donald Trump’s legal team filed an appeal aimed at reversing a decision by a Fulton County judge in Georgia, permitting District Attorney Fani Willis to continue prosecuting the criminal racketeering case against the former president and eight co-defendants. The 51-page motion submitted to Georgia Court of Appeals argues for clarity on the issue of “forensic misconduct,” under Georgia law that requires disqualification for certain acts of prosecutors. The appeal asserts that the trial judge, Scott McAfee, erred in not finding an actual conflict of interest. This argument hinges on Willis’ concealment of her romantic relationship with special prosecutor...

    Let’s all take a deep breath, and think about the long-term results of Judge McAfee‘s opinion versus what the knee-jerk thinking is among the conservative podcasters. In my opinion, this may very well be a big win for Trump and the other defendants. For one thing, if Fanny stays on the case, that means she will need to answer questions regarding not only her indiscretions, lies, and other prosecutorial irregularities., She will also have to respond to why she went to DC and met with the Biden administration, Kamala Harris, and the DOJ. Nathan Wade, now is a possible witness....

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' case against former President Donald Trump in Georgia may have been dealt a blow after the judge presiding over the matter agreed to hear pretrial motions and an appeal against Willis' ability to bring charges against one of the defendants. In August, Trump and 18 other defendants were indicted as part of Willis' probe into alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. On March 28, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee is expected to hear arguments from Trump's lawyers that the Georgia election interference case is intended to criminalize political speech....

    President Trump just notched a legal win that may shed some light on the bizarre decision made by the judge in the Big Fani dismissal case. In a moment that felt suggestive in a “wink and a nod” kind of way, Judge McAfee not only granted Trump a substantial triumph but also opened the door for rectifying his own unjust ruling by approving Trump’s appeal request in Georgia. It appears as if McAfee wanted to wash his hands clean and defer to a higher court, almost as if he was encouraging Trump’s team to seek an appeal and give Big...

    There's a Democrat Party modus operandi I've seen play out multiple times throughout my years of writing about politics: Democrat politicians and their lapdog media staunchly support and defend one another — until they don't. Once they smell blood in the water, it's under the bus for the previously defended. Such is the situation facing embattled Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis in the aftermath of Judge Scott McAfee’s 23-page ruling in which he sharply criticized both Willis and her former lover Nathan Wade, whom she hired as the special prosecutor in the RICO case against former President Donald...

    Former President Trump and several of his co-defendants are asking Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee for permission to appeal after he ruled against dismissing the case and disqualifying District Attorney Fani Willis. McAfee last week denied a full dismissal of the case against Trump and Willis’ disqualification. Instead, he demanded that Fulton County special prosecutor Nathan Wade resign from the case. McAfee warned that without Wade’s withdrawal, Willis would be disqualified from prosecuting Trump. Wade withdrew within hours of the judge's order.Four co-defendants had accused Willis of having an "improper" affair with Wade, whom she hired to help...

Within hours of the decision, Nathan Wade—now Willis’s ex—exited the case. While McAfee declared that half-measure solved the problem of an “appearance of impropriety,” the court’s reasoning established that true justice requires the removal of Willis and the entire Fulton County D.A.’s office.Judge McAfee’s...

    Fani Willis’ lover Nathan Wade withdrew from the Trump lawfare RICO case after Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee on Friday ruled District Attorney Fani Wills can continue her RICO case against Trump and his associates. In his 23-page decision, Judge McAfee ordered Fani Willis to address the “appearance of impropriety” before the case can move forward. McAfee ruled Willis can stay on the case but must fire her lover Nathan Wade, the top prosecutor she hired to hunt down Trump.

    Reactions from Georgia lawmakers poured in on Friday after a judge ruled that embattled Fulton County DA Fani Willis could remain on the case investigating alleged election interference by former President Donald Trump. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee issued a ruling Friday that Willis, who was accused of an improper romantic relationship that she attempted to cover up with special counsel Nathan Wade, could remain on the case if she fired Wade which prompted pushback from Georgia Republicans. "The ruling by Judge McAfee seems to clearly identify impropriety between the DA and Mr. Wade," Georgia Republican State Rep....

That was my own first reaction. However, digging into this a bit more it now appears that although McAfee chickened out, he appears to have done the Trump defense team a favor as judged by the panicked reaction by extreme Trump hater Andrew Weissmann who is now begging for Willis to LEAVE the case. His reaction is...

    Fulton County, Ga., Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee made his decision on whether District Attorney Fani Willis can continue prosecuting Donald Trump and 18 other co-defendants on corruption charges. McAfee ruled that Willis can continue to prosecute the former president and his co-defendants, but he has given the state multiple options to handle the case. All options involve Nathan Wade stepping away from the team. “The prosecution of this case cannot proceed until the State selects one of two options,” McAfee wrote in his decision. “The District Attorney may choose to step aside, along with the whole of her office,...

    ATLANTA (AP) — The judge in the Georgia election interference case against Donald Trump and others said Friday that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis must step aside from Trump case or remove the special prosecutor with whom she had a romantic relationship before case can proceed. Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade testified at a hearing last month that they had engaged in a romantic relationship, but they rejected the idea that Willis improperly benefited from it as lawyers for Trump and some of his co-defendants alleged. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said he found the “allegations...
