Georgia senator moves toward impeaching DA who prosecuted Trump

 August 18, 2023

A Georgia state senator is pushing for the impeachment of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over the charges she has filed against former President Donald Trump.

The lawmaker, Colton Moore, has taken steps to begin the process of impeaching Willis.

This move comes in direct response to the recent indictment of Trump, as Fox News reported.

Moore's public call for action

Sen. Moore has been vocal about his concerns. He accused Willis of pursuing a political agenda against Trump.

On social media, Moore expressed his determination to address the issue.

He stated:

As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis. America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors politically TARGET political opponents.

His sentiments reflect a growing concern among some sections of the political spectrum about the perceived politicization of legal processes.

Special session request to Governor

In addition to his public statements, Moore penned a letter to Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

He demanded a special session to discuss "the actions of Fani Willis." The letter, signed by elected members of both the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, emphasizes the urgency of the situation. It reads:

We, the undersigned, being duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and comprising 3/5 of each respective house, hereby certify to you, in writing, with a copy to the Secretary of State, that in our opinion an emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section, for all purposes, to include, without limitation, the review and response to the actions of Fani Willis.

Willis's response to the charges

Earlier this week, Willis held a press conference. This was after a Fulton County grand jury indicted the former president and several others.

The Georgia district attorney has given Trump and the 18 other indicted individuals until noon on Aug. 25 to turn themselves in.

During the press conference, Willis expressed her desire for a trial to commence within the next six months. She emphasized the importance of a fair and speedy trial to ensure that justice is served.

Trump's campaign targets Willis

Following the indictment, Trump's campaign shifted its focus to Willis.

The Trump camp highlighted the prosecutor's family background, particularly her father's association with the Black Panther movement.

The campaign's message to its supporters included references to a 2021 TIME magazine article and the Fulton County government's own website.

Trump's communication described Willis as coming from a "family steeped in hate" and labeled her the "daughter of a former Black Panther."

When approached for a comment on these allegations, Willis' office chose not to respond to Fox News. That silence has only fueled further speculation and discussion in the media.
