Corrupt Judge Rules: Either Corrupt Fani Willis or Corrupt Nathan Wade must leave Trump case

"A corrupt Judge Scott McAfee has ruled that one of the two corrupt prosecutors can stay on the case to prosecute Donald Trump for contrived crimes to sabtage the 2024 elections. All three should be removed from public service if there was balance in the justice system in Georgia, " says Eugene Delgaudio President of Public Advocate.

The Washington Times reports:

An Atlanta-area judge on Friday said Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis can remain on the case against former President Donald Trump so long as her ex-boyfriend, special prosecutor Nathan Wade, withdraws from the case.

Judge Scott McAfee presented the choice to Ms. Willis in a highly anticipated ruling on claims she should be disqualified because she enjoyed lavish trips and meals with Mr. Wade, who was hired in November 2021 for the taxpayer-funded job.

"The court finds the allegations and evidence legally insufficient to support a finding of an actual conflict of interest," the judge wrote. "However, the appearance of impropriety remains and must be handled as previously outlined before the prosecution can proceed."

Ms. Willis's relationship with Mr. Wade was an unexpected ripple in the case that shifted the spotlight from Mr. Trump's legal jeopardy to her personal life. The issue turned into a mini-trial of Ms. Willis and forced the couple, who said they split in mid-2023, to disclose intimate details of their relationship in a multi-day evidentiary hearing.

After two weeks of consideration and drafting his ruling, the judge took a Solomonic route to the problem and shifted the decision-making onto Ms. Willis.

He said Ms. Willis could choose to step aside alongside her office, forcing the Prosecuting Attorneys' Council to reassign the case.

Alternatively, Mr. Wade "can withdraw, allowing the District Attorney, the Defendants, and the public to move forward without his presence or remuneration distracting from and potentially compromising the merits of this case."

Judge McAfee said there were "reasonable questions" about whether the prosecutorial pair testified truthfully about the timing of their relationship. The pair said they began dating after Mr. Wade was hired, but witnesses disputed that.

The judge said tossing the charges outright would not be appropriate.
