Trump's Election Interference Trial in Georgia Delayed as Appeals Court Reviews Prosecutor Fani Willis' Role

  • last month
An appeals court in Georgia has delayed the trial of former President Donald Trump on charges of election interference until it rules on whether prosecutor Fani Willis should remain on the case. Trump's lawyers have repeatedly sought Willis' removal, arguing her previous romantic relationship with another prosecutor creates a conflict of interest. Last month, the judge overseeing the case ruled there was no conflict but allowed Trump to appeal that decision. The appeals court hearing on whether to remove Willis is scheduled for October 4th, making it unlikely the case will conclude before the 2024 presidential election.
