Trump Prosecutor Fani Willis’ Disqualification Hearing


Jordan Sekulow

February 15

Fulton County DA Fani Willis is in court but for the wrong reasons as a Georgia judge hears evidence regarding DA Willis’ alleged improper relationship with prosecutor Nathan Wade. How will today’s outcome affect their case against President Donald Trump for charges of 2020 election interference and voter fraud?

AP News reports on today’s incriminating testimony:

A former friend and co-worker of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis testified Thursday that Willis’ personal relationship with a special prosecutor began before he was hired in the Georgia election interference case against Donald Trump.

Robin Yeartie’s testimony directly contradicts statements from Willis and Wade that their personal relationship didn’t begin until after Wade was hired in November 2021. Yeartie was called to testify in a hearing to determine whether Willis should be removed from the case accusing Trump and others of conspiring to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.

The hearing will ultimately decide if DA Willis and her prosecutorial team will be removed from the Trump case. So what will be the fallout if that happens?

First, we should review how DA Willis found herself in this mess. Her office had received millions in grants to start community programs.

But a whistleblower accused Willis of using the federal funds to buy iPads/computers and questioned whether Wade (brought in for an eyebrow-raising $654,000 salary) was paid with federal funds and then used them for “lavish vacations” with Willis. The whistleblower was then fired and “escorted out of her office by seven armed investigators.”

Clearly, the Fulton County legal team has been tainted by the ongoing firestorm. The judge must do his due diligence (and from all appearances so far, he seems to be doing just that) in weighing the evidence that’s been presented.

What’s the best-case outcome today for Trump? He has asked that DA Willis (and her legal team) be disqualified from the case. If that happens, Governor Kemp will appoint a new prosecutor to take over – the new prosecutor will have the authority to either pursue the case further or dismiss it.

The judge could also decide to dismiss the indictment altogether – based on a 1916 case that gives the Georgia court the authority to quash an indictment. Of course, this would be a major win for President Trump.

As you know, President Trump has a litany of cases pending against him. It can be confusing at times to keep the cases straight. I want to give a brief rundown of the latest developments in the cases.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day for President Trump. A verdict is expected in his New York civil fraud case. He could possibly be forced to pay $370 million in penalties.

We also might have a decision very soon in Trump’s immunity case. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit – a panel of three judges, two of which were appointed by President Biden – ruled it was “unpersuaded” by Trump’s arguments for immunity for actions he took on January 6. The former President then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to recognize his claims of presidential immunity. We await the Justices’ ruling.

I want to hit on the ACLJ’s ongoing U.S. Supreme Court case to defend the right to vote for the candidate of your choice. The Justices received our final brief and heard oral arguments last week about whether or not the 14th Amendment can be used to remove Trump from the primary ballot. We expect a ruling at any time.

Trump’s criminal case in New York has been set for March 25 after a judge denied Trump’s motion to dismiss the charges. DA Alvin Bragg’s case will be the first criminal trial against a former U.S. President in our nation’s history.

Last but not least is Special Counsel Jack Smith’s classified documents indictment against Trump. Special Counsel Robert Hur announced that charges would not be filed against President Biden for illegally possessing classified documents. Will AG Merrick Garland drop the similar charges against Trump? Or will the far Left’s two-tiered system of justice continue?

It’s a strange time in America. My dad, ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, and I personally represented President Trump during the impeachment trials. But we’ve never seen so much lawfare being conducted against a former President. We’ll see how it affects the 2024 presidential election.
