Trump granted appeal in Fani case

Sharing is Caring!

Georgia’s state Court of Appeals said Wednesday that it will consider an appeal from former President Donald Trump challenging the decision not to disqualify Fani Willis as the district attorney overseeing the 2020 election interference charges against him.

The order said Trump can file a notice of appeal within the next 10 days.

A lawyer for Trump, Steve Sadow, said in a statement that Trump “looks forward” to arguing before the appeals court that the case should be dismissed and that Willis should be disqualified “for her misconduct in this unjustified, unwarranted political persecution.”

The DA’s office declined to comment.

The Superior Court judge presiding over the case, Scott McAfee, ruled in mid-March that Willis shouldn’t be disqualified from prosecuting Trump and his co-defendants despite their allegation that she had a conflict of interest in the case. They accused Willis of misconduct, alleging she financially benefited from her relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, which led to days of testimony in court about their romance.
