Donald Trump Gets Great News from the Supreme Court

Attorney Phil Holloway suggests that the Georgia election interference case involving Donald Trump could be dismissed due to allegations of an affair between Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade. Michael Roman, one of Trump’s co-defendants, made the allegations that Wade and Willis were romantically involved and profiting from the investigation at the expense of the taxpayers. Willis and her office have faced pushback over the allegations, with Trump and his co-defendants accusing them of misconduct. While Willis initially denied the allegations and accused her critics of playing the race card, legal analysts have criticised her judgement.

Legal analysts Norman Eisen, Joyce Vance, and Richard Painter argue that while Willis may have shown poor judgement, the allegations do not disqualify her from prosecuting Roman or others. Republicans have called for investigations into Willis’ alleged misconduct, with Georgia State Senate Republicans introducing legislation to establish a committee to look into the allegations. State Representative Charlice Byrd has also introduced a resolution to impeach Willis.

Georgia Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee has ordered Willis to address the allegations and submit a written response by February 2. An evidentiary hearing will follow on February 15. However, attorney Jonathan Turley believes that Willis and Wade should recuse themselves from the case entirely. Turley also suggests that Willis’ recent filing regarding Joycelyn Wade appears more cathartic than strategic.
