In what can only be described as a desperate attempt to salvage their flimsy case against former President Donald Trump, the Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is being called out by legal ethics expert Clark D. Cunningham. In a recent op-ed published in the left-wing rag, The New York Times, Cunningham urged Willis to “step aside” in order to preserve the case against Trump. It appears that Willis may have gotten a little too cozy with one of the prosecutors she hired to investigate the former president. The prosecutor in question, Nathan Wade, is alleged to be in a romantic relationship with Willis. This blatant conflict of interest has raised serious concerns about the integrity of the case.

Now, I don’t claim to be a legal expert, but it seems pretty clear to me that if the lead prosecutor in a case is canoodling with one of the prosecutors working under her, there may be some bias at play. Cunningham even warned in his op-ed that the consequences of Willis’ disqualification could be significant. And he’s right. We’ve already seen what happens when Willis is disqualified from a case. Just look at what happened when she was taken off the investigation into Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones. Months later, there still hasn’t been a special prosecutor appointed, and Jones hasn’t even been indicted. This is the kind of incompetence that we can expect if Willis remains in charge of the case against Trump.
But the stakes are even higher in this case. The former president stands accused of contesting the results of the 2020 election in Georgia. Now, I won’t get into the nitty-gritty of the allegations, because we all know they’re baseless. But if the case goes off the rails because of Willis’ inappropriate relationship with one of her prosecutors, we could see the charges against Trump reduced or even dismissed altogether. And that would be a travesty of justice.
Of course, Willis is not taking these accusations lying down. She has accused her critics of “playing the race card” in an attempt to distract from the real issue at hand. But sorry, Willis, that won’t work this time. It’s not about race, it’s about integrity and the rule of law. And by all accounts, you’ve failed on both counts.
So, what’s the solution here? Well, as Cunningham suggests, the judicious and farsighted course of action would be for Willis to take a personal leave of absence and hand over control of the district attorney’s office, and the case against Trump, to a deputy district attorney who is not embroiled in scandal. This would not only be an act of public service, but it would also offer the best chance of keeping this case on track and ensuring that Trump and his co-defendants are held accountable for their actions in the 2020 election. It’s time for Willis to step aside and let justice prevail. The American people deserve nothing less.
This whole situation just goes to show how determined the left is to take down Donald Trump. They’ll stop at nothing, even if it means compromising the integrity of our legal system. But mark my words, conservatives will not be silenced. We will fight for truth, justice, and the American way. And we will not rest until Trump is exonerated and those responsible for this witch hunt are held accountable.
