Fani Willis' Trump case is falling apart

 June 8, 2024

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' (D) prosecution of former President Donald Trump is falling apart, and it is all Willis' fault. 

This is the opinion of many legal experts who recently spoke with the New York Times

You likely don't have to be a legal expert, however, to figure this out.

After all, the case has gone seriously downhill for Willis ever since her numerous scandals were exposed.

The latest

A big recent news item was the decision of the Georgia Court of Appeals, this past week, to put a pause on Willis' case against Trump.

"In a major setback to the Fulton County District Attorney, the Georgia Court of Appeals on Wednesday put a pause on any proceedings related to the 2020 election interference case against former President Trump and co-defendants until it hears the case to disqualify Fani Willis in October," Fox News reported.

This is bad news for Willis and the Democrats because they were hoping to squeeze the case in before the 2024 presidential election so that they could obtain another criminal conviction against Trump.

But, the appeals court has set a date for the case of Oct. 4, 2024, which means that there is no real chance that Willis will be able to proceed with her case before the election.

To be clear, the Oct. 4 date is the date when the appellate court will decide whether or not Willis, given her numerous scandals, will be allowed to stay on the case. It is not until the court makes this decision that Trump's trial in Fulton County will proceed.

It's all her fault

The Times has quoted some experts as opining that Willis is the reason why her case against Trump is going so badly.

For example, Clark D. Cunningham, an expert in legal ethics and a law professor at Georgia State University, told the Times, "[Willis] has just stabbed the case right in the heart."

Cunningham did not elaborate on his statement, but one could probably guess that he is referring to all of her scandals, most notably her affair with Attorney Nathan Wade, whom she selected to prosecute Trump, paying him large sums of money which he then used to take her on trips.

Another expert, Anthony Michael Kreis, a constitutional law professor in Georgia, told The Guardian that "The history books will look back on what the country lost by not having a televised trial before November 2024 and historians will wonder what Fani Willis was thinking. And they'll just scratch their heads."

Indeed, it's hard to imagine anyone failing as badly as Willis has.
