Fani Willis is asking the court to throw out Trump's bid to deport her

(Dmitri “Henry” Aleksandrov, Holder USA) Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis's The office filed a motion Georgia's Court of Appeals on June 12, 2024, to expel Donald Trump's motion to remove Willis from one of his witch hunts, his Georgia 2020 elections Box.

Willis argued that she should remain the lead prosecutor in the case because her secret lover Nathan Wade resigned as special prosecutor after judge Scott McAfee decided in March that only one could stay in the case, the New York Post reported.

“[Willis’s motion is a] last ditch effort to stop any appellate review of DA Willis' misconduct,” Trump's legal team said.

In court documents, Willis argued that McAfee's “concern about any potential 'questions' stemmed from Wade's continued presence in the case, a concern that was addressed when Wade withdrew.”

Court documents said the defendants' “remaining evidence … relates to potential concerns about future appearances of impropriety that may no longer occur.”

After hearing conflict-of-interest arguments about their secret romantic relationship, McAfee became highly critical of Willis and Wade.

Willis hired Wade as special prosecutor in the 2020 election case against Trump and 18 co-defendants, in which they have been accused of trying to overturn state election results.

It was later revealed that Willis benefited financially from dating Wade, who treated her to an exotic vacation after earning a high salary for the case. As expected, Willis and Wade denied the allegations.

Arguments supporting the motion to disqualify her became “a room without walls” after McAfee ignored the testimony of star witness Terrance Bradley, Wade's former partner and divorce attorney, because he was concerned about Bradley's credibility, Willis' office said.

Steve Sadow, Trump's lawyer, criticized the district attorney's motion, saying it was “a last-ditch effort to stop any appellate review of DA Willis' misconduct.”

He then said the State's motion deliberately failed to mention that McAfee's decision called for a “perjury warrant” based on the hearing testimony of the prosecutor and the State's witnesses.

The judge also said there were “reasonable questions” whether Willis and Wade testified untruthfully.
