Trump and Co-Defendants Seek Immediate Appeal in Election Interference Case, Seeking Removal of DA Fani Willis

  • 2 months ago
Trump and 7 co-defendants sought an immediate appeal of the ruling allowing DA Fani Willis to remain on the 2020 election interference case. The judge acknowledged concerns of impropriety due to Willis' actions but did not dismiss her from the case, leading to the resignation of her chief prosecutor, Nathan Wade, over his relationship with Willis. If removed, the case would transfer to the state Prosecuting Attorneys' Council. Trump and 14 allies have pleaded not guilty to racketeering charges in the complex case. Four defendants have accepted plea deals in exchange for testimony.
