Fani Willis Impeachment Is ALMOST Here!

Fani Willis’ time as the district attorney of Fulton County in Georgia could soon be coming to an end.

Last week, the Georgia state Senator voted to create a special committee to investigate the embattled DA, which Republican state Senator Colton Moore said Friday was “the first step towards impeaching and defunding this corrupt prosecutor.”

Willis has been in the national spotlight over the last few years, as she has overseen an investigation into former President Donald Trump that has led to formal criminal charges being levied against him and 18 others for election subversion.

Yet, the attention around Willis lately has been focused not so much on the case against Trump and his co-defendants but about alleged improprieties she committed.

In early January, the lawyers for Michael Roman — one of the co-defendants in that case — filed court documents that accused Willis of being involved in a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade.

That’s pertinent, and inappropriate, because Willis brought Wade onto the case against Trump as a special prosecutor. This obviously creates a significant conflict of interest.

It took Willis weeks to admit she had a romantic relationship with Wade — who she paid an exorbitant salary for his work on the case — though she finally did that on Friday. Court records show that Wade has been paid $654,000 for his work on the case against Trump.

Despite the relationship now being confirmed, Willis said she wouldn’t be stepping down from her role or from her lead role in the case against Trump, because she didn’t do anything wrong.

In a court filing, Willis said:

“To be absolutely clear, the personal relationship between Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis has never involved direct or indirect financial benefit to District Attorney Willis.”

That claim, of course, is contradicted by Roman’s filing, which said that Wade used some of his salary to pay for extravagant vacations for himself and Willis.

By a 30-19 vote, the Georgia Senate created a special committee that will investigate Willis’ alleged misconduct. Regardless of the outcome of that investigation, though, the Senate won’t directly be able to sanction the DA.

One day after that vote, Moore took to the social media platform X, writing:

“Investigating Fani Willis is the first step towards impeaching and defunding this corrupt prosecutor. We cannot let up the pressure now. … we must DOUBLE DOWN.

“We are just getting started. We will save America. But it will take enormous courage and participation from grassroots, blue-collar PATRIOTS from across the land of the free.”

Trump’s legal team has since joined Roman’s complaint, arguing that Willis should be removed from the case due to this conflict of interest.

The former president is facing 13 criminal charges in the Peach State for his role in trying to change the outcome of the state vote in the 2020 presidential election.

He has pleaded not guilty to all of those charges, which include violating Georgia’s anti-racketeering act, filing false documents and conspiracy to commit forgery.
