A Georgia judge has extended the stay in the case against a co-defendant of former President Donald Trump in the Georgia election interference case.

The defendant, state Sen. Shawn Still, is entitled to a continuance and stay due to his status as a member of the General Assembly.

The case has been extended until mid-April for pretrial motions. Additionally, a co-defendant in the case has made allegations against District Attorney Fani Willis, claiming a conflict of interest and seeking dismissal of charges. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

“As a current member of the General Assembly, the Defendant is automatically entitled to a continuance and stay from ‘all aspects of the case,’” the filing read.

“All other provisions, including initial reciprocal discovery obligations, remain in place,” the filing added.

“Additional extensions will only be considered upon the filing of a particularized motion containing a detailed, fact-based explanation of the need for the extension, including the amount of time needed.”

“The Court finds that Shafer was not a federal officer when operating as a Republican-nominated presidential elector,” U.S. District Judge Steve Jones wrote.

“You had a very big event yesterday as you saw in Georgia where the district attorney is totally compromised. The case has to be dropped,” Trump said. “They went after 18 or 20 people. … She was out of her mind. Now it turns out that case is totally compromised.”

Multiple co-defendants have reportedly agreed to testify against others in the case, and there are claims of financial benefit and conflicts of interest within the prosecution team.

“Wade has personally and financially benefited from his personal relationship with Willis since he has received lucrative amounts under his continued contracts with Willis,” the motion read.

“He will continue to be incentivized to prosecute this case based on his personal and financial motives, so he has acquired a unique and personal interest or stake in Mr. Roman’s continued prosecution. That is, he is motivated to prosecute Mr. Roman for as long as possible because he will continue to make exorbitant sums of money.”
