Graham Blasts ‘nonsensical’ Verdict On Fani Willis’ Disqualification: ‘today Is A Sad Day For Georgia’


SKy21– South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) blasted Georgia Judge Scott McAfee’s “nonsensical” decision not to dismiss Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) for having a sexual involvement with a prosecutor she nominated to the case against former President Trump.

Graham stated that “politics” is hovering over the election meddling case against Trump and his friends, and McAfee’s decision “reinforces” the idea of a “two-tiered” justice system targeting the defendants.

“This ruling is nonsensical,” Graham stated on Friday. “When it comes to the prosecution of President Trump and others in Fulton County, Georgia, politics hangs heavy in the air.”

“The charges brought by Fulton County DA Willis and the bizarre decision by the judge not to remove her for an obvious appearance of impropriety reinforces the narrative that there is a two-tiered system of justice for President Trump and those around him,” Mr. Trump stated.

McAfee decided on Friday morning that either Willis or the special prosecutor, Nathan Wade, must withdraw from the election interference case before it can proceed. The judge determined that Willis and Wade’s previous romantic relationship created an appearance of conflict of interest in the case.

Wade stepped down from the lawsuit on Friday afternoon.

“[T]he established record now reveals a strong appearance of impropriety that permeates the current structure of the prosecution team – an impression that must be eliminated by the State choosing one of two options. “The Defendants’ motions are therefore granted in part,” McAfee said in the order, which was announced Friday.

The South Carolina senator expressed hope that the judgment will be reviewed by Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr (R) or the state Senate.

“I am hopeful either the Georgia State Senate or the state’s Attorney General will look into this matter,” Graham stated in a statement. “Today is a sad day for Georgia.”

Steve Sadow, Trump’s main defense counsel, also criticized the ruling, claiming it did not go far enough.

“While respecting the Court’s decision, we believe that the Court did not afford appropriate significance to the prosecutorial misconduct of Willis and Wade, including the financial benefits, testifying untruthfully about when their personal relationship began, as well as Willis’ extrajudicial MLK ‘church speech,’ where she played the race card and falsely accused the defendants and their counsel of racism,” Sadow said in a statement released on Friday.
