Former President Trump filed a motion to disqualify prosecutor Fani Willis from the Georgia election interference case, arguing her actions created an “appearance of impropriety” that required dismissal.

While a judge said Willis could remain if her ex-lover resigned from the case, Trump argued relevant case law requires dismissal or disqualification given Willis’ “forensic misconduct,” including a “legally improper” speech accusing critics of playing the “race card.”

“President Trump and seven defendants have jointly filed a motion requesting the court to grant a certificate of immediate review of its order denying dismissal of the case and disqualification of Fulton County DA Willis,” Trump attorney Steve Sadow stated.

Trump believes the appeals court should rule on the standard for disqualifying a prosecutor for such actions.

“The motion notes that the court found that Willis’ actions created an appearance of impropriety and an ‘odor of mendacity’ that lingers in this case, but it nonetheless refused to dismiss the case or disqualify her,” Sadow added.

“The motion further notes that the court found Georgia case law lacks controlling precedent for the standard for disqualification of a prosecuting attorney for forensic misconduct. For these reasons among others, the court’s order is ripe for pretrial appellate review,” he said.

“Defendants believe that the relevant case law requires dismissal of the case, or at the very least, the disqualification of the District Attorney and her entire office under the facts that exist here, and the resignation of Mr. Wade is insufficient to cure the appearance of impropriety the Court has determined exists. Given these facts and the current state of the case law, the Court of Appeals should speak definitively to this outcome-determinative issue now,” the motion states.

A source said while the ruling allows the case to proceed, it has tainted the jurisdiction and may result in transferring the case or an “even more stunning victory” for Trump when evidence is presented.

“While Judge McAfee’s ruling is light on principles and very likely to result in interlocutory appeal and even motions to transfer the case to a jurisdiction that hasn’t been tainted by Fani racist statements,” the source said.

“Proceeding in the case is very likely to allow a much more stunning victory against the regime when the election fraud evidence is presented,” they added.

The motion aims to resolve outstanding legal questions over disqualifying a prosecutor through appellate review.
