Viral Petition Demands Fani Willis’ Disqualification from Trump Election Case

A petition has gone viral that demands Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is removed from her politically motivated case against President Donald Trump.

As Slay News reported, a Georgia judge recently ruled that the embattled Democrat prosecutor could continue to lead her get-Trump case targetting the 45th president with election interference charges.

However, it appears that a large segment of the population would prefer a different outcome.

As Newsweek reports, a petition in support of Willis’s disqualification from the case has amassed over 50,000 signatures after going viral on social media.

The momentum of the petition suggests that Willis’s professional fate is far from settled.

The petition, initiated by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), has now soared past its initial stated goal of 50,000 signatures.

As the campaign continues to be flooded with support, the ACLJ has now set a new goal of 100,000 signatures.

The ACLJ is a noted Christian-based, conservative legal advocacy group.

The group’s leaders are committed to the cause of facilitating Willis’s removal from the Trump case.

The pushback against Willis comes amid concerns over her conduct concerning her personal relationship with former special prosecutor Nathan Wade.

The organization has also leveled accusations about what it believes are the political motivations behind the prosecution.

In response, the ACLJ has continued to take steps designed to secure what it believes is justice for Trump and his co-defendants.

Though Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee recently ruled that Willis could remain on the case, provided Wade stepped down, the ACLJ, like many Americans, remains dissatisfied with the result.

“Now the case is being appealed, and we’re taking action,” the group explained in the petition.

“Our senior legal team –including our own former GA prosecutor – is filing a critical amicus brief urging the Georgia Court of Appeals to hear this vital case and disqualify DA Willis.”

It was late last month that Trump and eight of his co-defendants in the election interference case formally appealed McAfee’s order leaving Willis in place, Fox News notes.

Attorneys contended that the decision regarding Wade and Willis stopped short of providing sufficient relief and that the disqualification of the district attorney was the appropriate remedy.

Trump attorney Steve Sadow explained:

“While the trial court factually found D.A. Willis’ out-of-court statements were improper, and Defendants proved an apparent conflict of interest, the trial court erred as a matter of law by not requiring dismissal and D.A. Willis’ disqualification.”

“This legal error requires the Court’s immediate review,” he added.

The ACLJ is not the only conservative organization taking aim at Willis, however.

Newsweek noted last month that the American Accountability Foundation (AAF) asked the State Bar of Georgia to investigate Willis for allegedly admitting to the retention of campaign funds for personal use.

The AAF also requested a similar probe and disciplinary action against Wade over his entanglement with Willis.

The organization argues that Wade committed perjury during a hearing on the D.A.’s potential disqualification.

Whether Willis will ultimately be disqualified from the Trump case and what, if any, professional sanctions she and Wade may receive, however, only time will tell.
