Trump attorney critical of judge’s decision to allow Willis to remain on election interference case

An attorney for former President Trump in his Georgia election interference case said the judge’s ruling Friday morning on allowing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to remain on the case and that case can proceed didn’t go far enough.

Attorneys for Trump and his co-defendants in the case tried to have Willis dismissed after learning she was having a romantic relationship with the special prosecutor she hired, Nathan Wade.

“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,” Steve Sadow, Trump’s lead defense counsel in the case, said in a statement, according to The Hill newspaper.
