Judge says DA Willis can remain on Trump case if prosecutor steps aside

by ian

The ruling is in, and Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis can stay on her election interference case against former President Donald Trump.

Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee issued the decision this morning, saying there was a “significant appearance of impropriety” from Willis and her team – but at the same time, there wasn’t enough evidence to rule it an “actual conflict of interest.”

McAfee gave Willis two choices: either step aside, along with the whole of her office, or stay on the case and fire special prosecutor Nathan Wade, with whom she is romantically involved.

Trump’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, vowed to “continue to fight to end this case, which should never have been brought in the first place.”
