Last month, Cristina Laila reported on State Senator Colton Moore of Georgia’s principled stand for justice.
Moore proposed an emergency session to review the actions of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis following her indictment of former President Donald Trump on charges related to his speech.
This was the first step towards Willis’ impeachment and defunding her office. Despite taking a side with the former president, Moore is now facing repercussions for his bold stance.
“As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis.” Senator Moore said.
“America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors politically TARGET political opponents,” he added.

In May, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed Senate Bill 92 into law, which establishes a statewide Prosecuting Attorneys Statewide Qualifications Commission.
This commission has the authority to investigate complaints against district attorneys and remove them from office if necessary.
The bill outlines grounds for discipline, removal, or involuntary retirement of a district attorney or solicitor-general, including willful misconduct in office and conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice which brings the office into disrepute.
It is reasonable to assume that Willis has committed these offenses and potentially more.
