Former President Trump and several co-defendants have filed an appeal challenging the involvement of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in the Georgia election interference case.

They are seeking to have the indictment dismissed and Willis recused from overseeing the case due to alleged improper conduct.

The appeal argues that existing case law required not just the lead prosecutor’s recusal but Willis’ and her entire office’s removal.

“This legal error requires the Court’s immediate review,” the filing stated. “The trial court was bound by existing case law to not only require Wade’s disqualification (which occurred) but also to require the disqualification of DA Willis and her entire office. The trial court’s failure to do so is plain legal error requiring reversal.”

It will now be reviewed by a three-judge panel on the Georgia Court of Appeals, with only one judge needing to vote in favor for the appeal to advance.

The defense contends Judge McAfee, who previously declined to recuse Willis, committed legal errors in his ruling.

However, Judge McAfee has signaled his intention to continue addressing other pretrial motions regardless of the appeal’s outcome.

“The Court intends to continue addressing the many other unrelated pending pretrial motions, regardless of whether the petition is granted within 45 days of filing, and even if any subsequent appeal is expedited by the appellate court,” Judge McAfee said.
