Fani Willis appeal the dropping of several Trump charges

 May 25, 2024

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) has filed an appeal after the judge decided to dismiss several of the charges that Willis had brought against former President Donald Trump. 

Fox News reports that Willis filed the appeal on Thursday.

The filing comes about two months after Fulton Country Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee dropped six of the charges that Willis had brought against Trump and some of his co-defendants.

This is all taking place in the case that Willis has brought against Trump in Georgia, alleging that the former president and several of his associates committed various crimes by attempting to challenge Georgia's results in the 2020 presidential election. Trump has denied any wrongdoing, and he has insisted that Willis is running election interference for President Joe Biden.

Willis' appeal

According to Newsweek, Willis is trying to revive three of the six charges that McAfee has dismissed.

"Willis asked an appeals court on Thursday to reverse Judge Scott McAfee's decision to dismiss six charges in the sweeping RICO case against Trump and 18 co-defendants for their alleged efforts to interfere with Georgia's 2020 election. Willis did not give a reason why the charges should be reinstated," the outlet reports.

Newsweek goes on to provide more information about the charges.

"In March, McAfee ruled that the counts, which included three against the former president, lacked sufficient detail about the nature of the violations. The charges quashed by the judge had to do with soliciting elected officials to violate their oaths of office. The order brought the total number of charges against Trump down from 13 counts to 10. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges," the outlet writes.

Willis' appeal will be heard by a Georgia appellate court, but a date for the hearing has yet to be set.

Pure insanity

The craziest part about this whole case is that Willis gets to continue prosecuting Trump despite the various scandals that she has found herself at the center of.

Among the various scandals, the one that is most widely known regards her lover, Attorney Nathan Wade. Willis hired Wade to lead the prosecution of Trump and then she paid Wade large sums of money which he, in part, used to take her on trips.

Wade was kicked off the Trump case, but, for some reason that most legal experts don't seem to understand, McAfee has allowed Willis to remain on the case.

Trump and his legal team are trying to change this by appealing McAfee's decision to allow Willis to stay.

Finally, if this all wasn't absurd enough, Willis - despite the multitude of scandals - recently won her primary election, meaning that, apparently, the voters think she's doing well and want her to continue. That's pure insanity.
