BREAKING: What Trump’s Appeal Means for Fani Willis

The fiasco in Fulton County, Georgia continues as the Left continues its multi-pronged legal assault on President Donald Trump in an apparent attempt to stop him from regaining the Oval Office.

Former President Donald Trump and several of his co-defendants are requesting permission to appeal Judge Scott McAfee’s recent ruling, which failed to dismiss the Georgia election interference case against Trump outright or to remove disgraced Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the prosecution.

But most confusing of all, the motion noted that the Court found that DA Willis’s actions “created an appearance of impropriety and an ‘odor of mendacity’ that lingers in this case, but it nonetheless refused to dismiss the case or disqualify her.”

Judge McAfee did say that Attorney Nathan Wade, the special counsel on the case at the center of the controversy with DA Willis, had to remove himself or the case could not continue. But beyond that, no action was taken against Willis, despite all indications of impropriety.

Merriam-Webster defines mendacity as: A statement known by its maker to be untrue and made in order to deceive. In layman’s terms, even the Court feels like there is an order of lying hanging over this case, but still wouldn’t remove DA Willis or throw out the case, even though her office is clearly tainted. Instead, the judge is allowing the prosecution to move forward with Willis in the driver’s seat.

If the appeals court grants review, which I believe it will, I want to file an amicus brief in this case on the clear appearance of impropriety. Even the public can see there’s at the very least been some impropriety in this case, and it isn’t right.

ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy Ric Grenell echoed that observation, stating:

For people who have common sense I think that’s the biggest thing. They look at this and say we saw the evidence, why aren’t we just having both of them go? Why do we have to pick just one or the other. What are you trying to say? If there’s a problem with the affair, if there’s a problem with the money, they’re both at fault. It’s not just one, and I don’t understand why we think we clean up the situation, and that we have pure justice, and that we’re back to being unbiased by just getting rid of one of these individuals.

The judge was certainly correct in stating there’s an “odor of mendacity,” as thus far, the entire proceeding stinks.
