President Trump and his lawyers are seeking to get Fani Willis thrown off the RICO case against him due to her many conflicts of interest and her partisan prosecution.
He is joining his co-defendant Michael Roman’s effort to disqualify Willis, Wade, and the entire Fulton County DA’s office. They are accusing Willis of having an affair with Nathan Wade and profiting from the exorbitant salary she is paying him with taxpayer funds.
The motion was filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County on behalf of defendant Michael Roman, a former Trump campaign official who was hit with counts 1, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 in Fani Willis’ RICO case.
The motion seeks to have all charges against Roman dropped and to have Willis, Wade and the entire DA’s office disqualified from participating in the trial against Trump. This could become most interesting.
Whoever the new prosecutor is, they are not bound by any of the decisions made by Willis. They could drop the entire case if they didn’t want to be stained by the unconstitutional case brought by Willis.
Willis herself might be wishing she never brought the case up as she is facing a maximum penalty of disbarment, which would force her to resign and prevent her from practicing law at any level.
Trump’s lawyers filed the following motion:
“Highly significant to the merits of the adopted motion, President Trump points out that after Roman’s motion was filed, and after the Court announced in open court on Friday, January 12 that it intended to hold a hearing on the motion in February, DA Willis chose, two days later, on Sunday, January 14, during Martin Luther King, Jr. national holiday weekend, in a religious public forum, to make racially charged, extrajudicial statements designed to defend against, as well as divert and deflect attention from, the alleged misconduct outlined in Roman’s motion. DA Willis gave a keynote speech at Atlanta’s historic Black church, Big Bethel AME Church, a speech wherein, without mentioning the alleged affair or even trying to put her alleged malfeasance in context, she repeatedly and inappropriately injected race into the case and stoked racial animus by, among other statements, asking God why the defendants were questioning her conduct in hiring a Black man but not his White counterparts, and why the judgment of a Black female Democrat wasn’t as good as White male Republicans. The DA’s speech lasted approximately 35 minutes, was widely reported on by local and national media outlets and broadcast on YouTube.”
“Specifically, the DA’s extrajudicial comments set out in footnote 1 constitute a glaring, flagrant, and calculated effort to foment racial bias into this case by publicly denouncing the defendants for somehow daring to question her decision to hire a Black man (without also mentioning that she is alleged to have had a workplace affair with the same man) to be a special prosecutor. These assertions by the DA engender a great likelihood of substantial prejudice towards the defendants in the eyes of the public in general, and prospective jurors in Fulton County in particular. Moreover, the DA’s self-serving comments came with the added, sought after, benefit of garnering racially based sympathy for her self-inflicted quagmire. That being so, the DA’s comments directly ran afoul of Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 3.8 Special Responsibilities of a Prosecutor, subsection (g): The prosecutor in a criminal case shall “… refrain from making extrajudicial comments that have a substantial likelihood of heightening public condemnation of the accused.”2 The maximum penalty for a violation of Rule 3.8 is disbarment.”
Willis appeared to defend her hiring of special prosecutor Nathan Wade.
Without mentioning Wade by name, Willis said she hired three special prosecutors to work on the case and "paid them all the same hourly rate."
