An upstart Democrat named Fani Willis launched an unprecedented state prosecution against Donald Trump. She has accused the former president of trying to overturn the results of the 2020 Election. Many people have commented on Willis’s motives, which seem to be political.
But long before the case has even reached trial, Willis has been hit with serious accusations. People are accusing this Democrat of hiring her lover on the case–and paying him BIG bucks.
Critics are accusing Willis of committing a conflict of interest and perhaps even worse. Now, Georgia Republicans are taking steps that could shut down politically-motivated prosecutions for good.
Georgia House members on Monday passed a bill to revive a commission with powers to discipline and remove prosecutors, which Republicans could potentially use to target embattled Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is leading the prosecution against former President Donald Trump.
Willis has been caught up in scrutiny over allegations she hired special prosecutor Nathan Wade for the case because of their alleged romantic relationship.
The House voted 95-75 along party lines for House Bill 881, sending it to the Senate for further debate. A similar bill that would create a special committee to investigate Willis for her “improper” affair advanced out of a Senate committee last week. [Source: Fox News]
Republicans in Georgia’s House voted to pass a bill that will revive a commission to remove state prosecutors. This came shortly after word spread of DA Willis’s possible wrongdoing. Should this bill pass into law, the commission could shut down Willis’s agenda and end her case against Trump.
Willis has faced accusations that she hired a romantic partner to work on the case against Trump. This man was allegedly paid a huge salary (more than other prosecutors who had more experience), which he supposedly used to take the two on luxurious vacations.
The Democrat prosecutor is facing serious accusations that could derail her entire case. If it is proven that she committed these ethical (and perhaps illegal) breaches, then her campaign against Trump could be thrown out.
This commission has been met with hurdles by the state Supreme Court. But pressure seems to be growing within the state to hold Willis accountable. Many have claimed she is conducting this case against Trump simply over partisan reasons. Legal experts have questioned whether a state prosecutor can even indict a former president over possible federal charges.
Some believe Willis did this simply to elevate her political profile. But this scandal might completely sink her future career.
