Marjorie Taylor Greene makes a move to disbar Fani Willis

 March 22, 2024

As a result of her association with a prosecutor that she hired for her Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has filed a complaint against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, requesting that she be disbarred from her position.

Greene said on social media that she was going to file the complaint because she wanted Willis to be disbarred "for her corrupt actions," as Newsweek reported.

Willis "should've been removed from her political persecution of President Trump after it was revealed she went on lavish vacations with her lover Nathan Wade," Greene wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter. "The lover she paid HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of dollars! Unfit to serve!"

Greene's Claims

The Georgia Republican asserted in the complaint filed with the State Bar of Georgia, which she filed on Wednesday, that she was "requesting an investigation of Fani Willis, her suspension, and her disbarment," as Bloomberg News reported.

Greene reportedly blasted the judge presiding over the election interference case for failing to disqualify Willis and for failing to determine that she had lied to the witness stand over her relationship with Wade, the special prosecutor that Willis had hired.

Anyone living in Georgia has the right to sue any lawyer they see fit. If the Georgia State Bar chooses to investigate or dismiss Greene's complaint, the decision will not be disclosed to the public because hearings are confidential.

In cases of disciplinary action against attorneys, the ultimate decision rests with the Georgia Supreme Court.

This Follows the Court Ruling

Greene's lawsuit follows a ruling by Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee on Friday, who found that Willis' relationship with Wade constituted an "appearance of impropriety" and ordered Wade's removal from the case.

Without Wade's removal, Willis would have been unable to continue pursuing charges against Trump and others for attempting to overturn Joe Biden's 2020 election victory.

Writing to Willis in the hours following McAfee's decision, Wade said that he was resigning "in the interest of democracy, in dedication to the American public and to move this case forward as quickly as possible."

Case Details

The defense team claimed that Willis unfairly benefited from Wade's substantial compensation for his involvement on the case as he used the money to fund their vacations.

Although they admitted to having a romantic relationship, Willis and Wade vehemently disputed that he had undue benefitted from it.

The couple insisted that they started dating after he was appointed special prosecutor and that they broke up a year ago. Rumor has claimed that Willis reimbursed Wade for his travel expenditures using cash or paid for goods herself.

Willis could stay on the prosecution's case pending Wade's resignation, according to McAfee's Wednesday judgment that allowed Trump and other defendants to appeal. The decision to hear the case is left to the Georgia Court of Appeals, as reported by The Associated Press.

Trump's Reaction

Former president Trump, who is currently the likely Republican candidate for president in 2024, is facing four separate criminal investigations; Greene's lawsuit is just the latest attempt by Trump's associates to cast doubt on the most extensive of these charges.

Trump has denied all accusations and has cast his legal team's actions against him as a plot to undermine his presidential campaign.
