TRUMP Pleads NOT Guilty in Georgia Election FRAUD Case

TRUMP is Waiving The Right to Appear in Court Next Week.

TRUMP Co-Defendant Rudy Giuliani Pleads NOT Guilty in Georgia Case

TRUMPS' Personal Lawyer Rudy Giuliani And Six Other Co-Conspirators Have Pleaded NOT Guilty to State Charges in Georgia.


BBC 2 SEP 2023






Trump is among 19 people charged with a conspiracy to overturn the US state's 2020 vote results.

He turned himself in at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta last week, where he had his mugshot taken.



In total, Trump faces 13 felony counts - including racketeering - for allegedly pressuring Georgia officials to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election in that state.

In a court document filed on Thursday, Trump said he "fully understands" the nature of the allegations and his right to appear in court.

"Understanding my rights, I do hereby freely and voluntarily waive my right to be present at my arraignment on the indictment and my right to have it read to me in open court," the signed document says.

Trump, the current frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, has appeared at each of his three previous arraignments.

He was required to do so for the cases he is facing in New York and Florida, and opted not to request a virtual appearance for a separate case in Washington DC.

In all three cases, there was tight security as Trump supporters and counter-protesters gathered near the courthouses.

Trump surrendered and was arraigned simultaneously in his federal court cases, which led to his high-profile courtroom appearances. However, in Georgia state court, a defendants' surrender and arraignment usually happen separately.

Donald Trump: "I just want to find 11,780 votes"



Brian Tevis, an Atlanta attorney who represents one of Mr Trump's co-accused, Rudy Giuliani, told CBS, the BBC's US partner, that "99% of the time" defendants who are given the option choose to waive their arraignment.

Clark Cunningham, a law professor at Georgia State University, said that decision is "usually non-controversial".

"Trump fully knows the charges against him," he said. "That's the main purpose of the arraignment, to read the charges to the accused, and [to enter] the person's plea. So he doesn't need to be there, he knows what they are."

Earlier this week, three other co-defendants in the case entered not guilty pleas, including former Trump attorneys Ray Stallings Smith and Sidney Powell, as well as former celebrity publicist Trevian Kutti.

Trump was originally due to be arraigned on 6 September, followed by the other defendants in 15-minute intervals.

All 19 defendants in the case - including Trump - are charged with violating Georgia's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations Act, commonly known as the Rico act.

Across the US and at the federal level, Rico laws are used to help prosecutors connect underlings who broke the law with those who gave orders or organised the crime.

Fulton County's District Attorney, Fani Willis, a Democrat, has increasingly come under fire from some Republicans and Trump allies for her decision to indict Mr Trump in the case.

Earlier in August, State Senator Colton Moore sent a letter to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, a fellow Republican, calling for a special session to impeach Ms Willis.

At a Thursday news conference, Mr Kemp said he had yet to see evidence that such a move would be justified.

"As long as I am governor, we're going to follow the law and the Constitution, regardless of who it helps or harms politically," the governor said.

All court proceedings against Trump and the 18 co-defendants in Georgia will be televised and broadcast on YouTube, a Fulton County judge ruled on Thursday.




Rudy Giuliani






Giuliani is charged with 13 crimes related to efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in the state.


He joins Trump and several other co-defendants in entering not guilty pleas, waiving their right to appear in person for a hearing next week.

All 19 have been allowed to go free pending trial after paying a bail bond.

On Thursday, the judge overseeing Mr Trump's case announced that the trial will be streamed on YouTube.

A date for the trial has not yet been set, but it could be next year, in the middle of the former president's run for re-election.

The next court date is an arraignment on Wednesday, a short hearing at which the plea is officially entered in court.

Trump and the other alleged co-conspirators briefly travelled to Atlanta last week to turn themselves in at Fulton County Jail and have their mugshots taken.

All 19 defendants in the case - including Donald Trump - are charged with violating Georgia's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations Act, commonly known as the Rico act.

Across the US and at the federal level, Rico laws are used to help prosecutors connect underlings who broke the law with those who gave orders or organised the crime.

They have denied any wrongdoing.

After surrendering to authorities in Georgia last week, Mr Giuliani, who was the mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001, stood outside the jail and called the prosecution "a travesty".

"I am very, very honoured to be involved in this case, because this case is a fight for our way of life," he said.

Other suspects who have entered not guilty pleas include Ken Chesebro; the alleged architect of the fake electors scheme who has petitioned the court for a speedy trial; and lawyers Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis.

Movies Re: Prosecutors Say NO Plea Deals For TRUMP Meadows & Giuliani on Election 'Racketeer

Georgia Prosecutors Oppose Plea Deals For TRUMP, Meadows and Giuliani

Fulton County Prosecutors Unwilling to Offer Deals to Key Trio, Preferring Instead to Force Them to Trial & Wield The Power of Georgias’ Racketeering Statute to Their Advantage.

BBC 28 NOV 2023





Georgia prosecutors oppose plea deals for TRUMP, Meadows and Giuliani

Fulton county prosecutors do not intend to offer plea deals to Donald Trump and at least two high-level co-defendants charged in connection with their efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, according to two people familiar with the matter, preferring instead to force them to trial.


The individuals seen as ineligible include Trump, his former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, and Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Aside from those three, the Fulton county district attorney Fani Willis has opened plea talks or has left open the possibility of talks with the remaining co-defendants in the hope that they ultimately decide to become cooperating witnesses against the former president, the people said.

it signals who prosecutors consider their main targets, and how they want to wield the power of Georgia’s racketeering statute to their advantage.

A spokesperson for the district attorney’s office declined to comment.

Trump and 18 co-defendants in August originally pleaded not guilty to a sprawling indictment that charged them with violating the Rico statute in seeking to reverse his 2020 election defeat in the state, including by advancing fake Trump electors and breaching voting machines.

In the weeks that followed, prosecutors reached plea deals in quick succession with the former Trump lawyers Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis and Kenneth Chesebro – who all gave “proffer” statements that were damaging to Trump to some degree – as well as the local bail bondsman Scott Hall.

The plea deals underscore the strategy that Willis has refined over successive Rico prosecutions: extending offers to lower-level defendants in which they plead guilty to key crimes and incriminate higher-level defendants in the conspiracy pyramid.

As the figure at the top of the alleged conspiracy, Trump was always unlikely to get a deal. But the inclusion of Meadows and Giuliani on that list, at least for now, provides the clearest roadmap to date of how prosecutors intend to take the case to trial.

The preference for the district attorney’s office remains to flip as many of the Trump co-defendants as possible, one of the people said, and prosecutors have asked the Fulton county superior court judge Scott McAfee to set the final deadline for plea deals as far back as June 2024.

At least some of the remaining co-defendants are likely to reach plea deals should they fall short in their pre-trial attempts to extricate themselves from Trump, including trying to have their individual cases transferred to federal court, or have their individual charges dismissed outright.

The prosecutors on the Trump case appear convinced that they are close to gaining more cooperating witnesses. In recent weeks, one of the people said, prosecutors privately advised the judge to delay setting a trial date because some co-defendants may soon plead out, one of the people said.

On Monday, former Trump lawyer and co-defendant John Eastman asked the judge to allow him to go to trial separately from the former president, and earlier than the August 2024 trial date proposed by prosecutors.

Eastman also asked for the final plea deal deadline to be moved forward.

The court filing from Eastman reflected the apparent trepidation among a growing number of Trump allies charged in Fulton county about standing trial alongside Trump as a major Rico ringleader, a prospect widely seen as detrimental to anyone other than Trump.

In a statement, Trump’s lawyer Steve Sadow suggested the former president was uninterested in reaching a deal. “Any comment by the Fulton county district attorney’s office offering ‘deals’ to President Trump is laughable because we wouldn’t accept anything except dismissal,” Sadow said.

But the lack of a plea deal would be a blow to Meadows. The Guardian previously reported that the former Trump White House chief of staff has been “in the market” for a deal in Georgia after he managed to evade charges in the federal 2020 election subversion case in Washington after testifying under limited-use immunity.


It was unclear why prosecutors are opposed to negotiating with Meadows, though the fact that he only testified in Washington after being ordered by a court suggested he might only be a reluctant witness. Reached by phone on Monday, Meadows’s local counsel declined to comment.


The lawyers for Giuliani, meanwhile, have long said he never expected a plea deal offer. Giuliani’s associates have also suggested he wanted to remain loyal to Trump, who is scheduled to host a dinner at Mar-a-Lago in December to raise money to pay for his compounding legal debts.

Movies TRIAL Set to Begin: What Price Will Rudy Giuliani Pay Georgia Election Workers

What Price Will Rudy Giuliani Pay For Smearing Georgia Election Workers?

Jury Trial Set to Begin to Determine Damages Rudy Giuliani Will Pay Georgia Election Workers- Judge Had Already Ruled Rudy Giuliani Defamed 2 Georgia Election Workers


TRUMPS' 2020 lawyer will face mother and daughter at trial who claim he destroyed their lives and caused them emotional distress by maliciously accusing them of election fraud


The Guardian 11 DEC 2023





Rudy Giuliani, the politician who was once lauded as “America’s mayor” but descended into the rabbit hole of Donald Trumps’ election denial lies, will face a Washington DC jury on Monday in a landmark case which could see him saddled with millions of dollars in damages.





For the first time at trial, Giuliani will be confronted in a federal district court with the consequences of the conspiracy theories he disseminated as Trump’s 2020 election lawyer. He will come eye-to-eye with the mother and daughter poll workers from Georgia who claim that he destroyed their lives and caused them ongoing emotional distress by maliciously accusing them of election fraud.

The stakes of the civil trial are exceptionally high. The plaintiffs are asking the jury to set damages of up to $43m as punishment for Giuliani’s “outrageous conduct”.

Legal experts and democracy advocates will also be watching closely to see whether a rarely used complaint of defamation can act as a deterrent on anyone contemplating another round of election denial in next year’s presidential election and beyond.




There could also be ramifications for the Rico organised crime prosecution that Giuliani is facing in Fulton county, Georgia, that also relates to his actions in the 2020 election.


After jury selection and opening statements on Monday, there will be three days of testimony in the DC trial. Headlining the witness list are the poll workers themselves, Ruby Freeman and her daughter, Shaye Moss.

“While nothing will fully repair all of the damages that Giuliani and his allies wreaked on our clients’ lives, livelihoods and security, they are eager and ready for their day in court to continue their fight for accountability,” said the women’s legal representatives at Protect Democracy, a non-partisan advocacy group.

Freeman and Moss became household names after they gave a moving televised account to the House investigation into the 6 January 2021 insurrection at the US Capitol. They recounted how their lives had been turned upside down by Giuliani’s relentless attacks.


“Be glad it’s 2020 and not 1920,” Moss, who is African American, told the hearing, invoking the history of lynching in the deep south.

Giuliani has already been found liable by the judge presiding in the case, Beryl Howell, for smearing the poll workers, intentionally inflicting emotional distress on them, and engaging in a conspiracy with at least two others to defame them. It now falls to the jury to decide the scale of damages.

Giuliani defamed the poll workers by accusing them falsely of criminal misdeeds during the critical count of presidential election votes in the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. As one of the key swing states in the 2020 race, Georgia’s 16 electoral college votes had the potential to determine whether Trump or Joe Biden would be the next occupant of the White House.

As part of the Trump team’s extensive efforts to undermine the election count and thereby foil Biden’s victory, Giuliani bore down on Freeman and Moss. He helped circulate a misleadingly edited tape of security footage from the arena which he inaccurately claimed showed them stealing votes for Biden.

He propagated the “Suitcase Gate” conspiracy theory – a video that falsely claimed to show the poll workers removing phoney ballots from suitcases stored under their table, then counting them “three, four, five, six, seven times …”

The court will be shown a sample of the ginger mint that Freeman passed to Moss during the counting process – Giuliani claimed it was a USB drive used to change the vote count on electronic tabulation devices.






His wild claims were fully debunked by Georgia officials at the time he was making them. In June a full investigation by the state’s election board cleared Freeman and Moss of any wrongdoing and dismissed Giuliani’s fraud claims as “unsubstantiated”.

Movies Re: Giuliani TRIAL-Rudy to Election Workers 'Eat Shxt & Die You Fxxking Cxxt You are

Giuliani TRIAL; Rudy to Election Workers 'Eat Shxt and Die You Fxxking Cxxt, You are Done

Years later, she still lives in fear that the lies will get her killed, she said.

Daily Mail 14 DEC 2023







Scared for her life after Rudy Giuliani and other Trump allies falsely accused her of fraud, Georgia election worker Wandrea “Shaye”

Moss told jurors Tuesday she seldom leaves her home, suffers from panic attacks and battles nightmares brought on by a barrage of threatening and racist messages.



Wandrea “Shaye” Moss took the witness stand on the second day of the defamation trial that will determine how much Giuliani will have to pay Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, for spreading a conspiracy theory that they rigged the state's 2020 election results. Moss sobbed as she testified that her life was turned upside down by the accusations, though they were quickly debunked by state officials.

Moss' attorneys displayed a few of the graphic messages accusing her of treason and more that she received after Giuliani in December 2020 falsely accused workers at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta of tampering with ballots. Moss told jurors that she was a bubbly, outgoing person before the conspiracy theories began, but since then she's been stuck in a lonely cycle of crying and nightmares.

“I’m most scared of my son finding me and or my mom hanging in front of our house on a tree having to get news at school that his mom was killed,” the 39-year-old said. At one point in January 2021, she said, someone came to her grandmothers' door threatening to make a “citizen arrest.”

Moss and her mother are seeking tens of millions of dollars in damages from Giuliani in the defamation case at the same time that the former New York City mayor is preparing to defend himself against criminal charges in a separate case in Georgia.


Giuliani has pleaded not guilty in the criminal case that accuses him and others of conspiring to overturn Donald Trump's 2020 election loss. He has denied any wrongdoing.

The judge overseeing the defamation case has already found Giuliani liable, and Giuliani has acknowledged in court that he made public comments falsely claiming Freeman and Moss committed fraud while counting ballots. The only issue remaining in the trial is the amount of damages Giuliani will have to pay the women.


Giulianis' financial woes could compound as he faces mounting legal exposure

Legal issues have left him with what his lawyer calls "financial difficulties."

Rudy Giuliani Net Worth DEC 2023:


In the half-decade since he left New York's City Hall, lucrative consulting work and speaking fees had boosted his net worth to between $18 and $70 million...

His net worth DEC 2023 is estimated at $40 million.

WATCH Giuliani Lawyers’ Double Jeopardy Argument Fall FLAT in Georgia RICO Election Racketeering Case

'You May Have a Point': Judge McAfee Destroys Rudy Giulianis' Defense in TRUMPS' Georgia Election CRIMINAL Case

Hundreds of Election Workers Have QUIT -- Due to THREATS


--An election official who spread false claims about the 2020 election quit his job when he realized he wasn't extreme enough for his countys' angry residents.

MSNBC 14 JAN 2024





Attorneys for Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani and others were in Fulton County court for a hearing related to the Georgia election interference case.


Giulianis’ lawyers raised double jeopardy concerns if his client is charged in other states, which fell flat with the judge who asked,

"How does that become a double jeopardy issue if all the states are separate sovereigns?" A group of attorneys representing co-defendant Trevian Kutti, who appeared at the hearing virtually, asked to withdraw as counsel. Judge McAfee allowed them to do so and advised Kutti to find new representation.


Judy Giulianis' attorney crashed and burned in court Friday, as he tried to file a motion to raise concerns about double jeopardy — and was immediately swatted down as the judge poked a very simple hole in his argument, noted legal analyst Katie Phang.

Giuliani, a close associate of former President Donald Trump who served as a federal prosecutor and the mayor of New York City, is one of several co-defendants charged in the Fulton County, Georgia election racketeering case.

"If I understand the argument, is it simply that other states could prosecute your client for the same predicate act?" asked the judge.

"Yes, Judge," said the attorney. "For instance, our code in Georgia, you can't be sentenced for a RICO, the RICO, and the predicate act, but in Florida you can."

"But how does that become a double jeopardy issue if all the states are separate sovereigns?" asked the judge. "I mean, couldn't you be convicted in every single state, all 50 states, if there was an issue, without any double jeopardy concerns whatsoever?"

"You may have a point, Judge," conceded the attorney. "I mean, there may be something to that."

Law professor Randall Eliason says he has the answer.

"The solution to this," he said Friday, "is to not commit the same crime in multiple jurisdictions."

Judge in TRUMPS' Georgia Case Orders Hearing on Misconduct Allegations Against DA Fani Willis

Judge Sets Hearing Over Fani Willis Conflict-of-Interest Claims

Co-defendant Michael Roman requests DA be stood down over claims of improper romantic relationship with special prosecutor in TRUMPS' Criminal Trial


The Guardian 20 JAN 2024







Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Nathan Wade arrive to speak at a news conference at the Fulton County Government building on August 14, 2023



The Georgia judge overseeing the racketeering case charging Donald Trump and allies with attempting to overturn the 2020 election results in the state has scheduled a hearing for February to weigh whether the Fulton county district attorney should be disqualified from prosecuting the charges.

In a one-page order, the Fulton county superior judge Scott McAfee set an evidentiary hearing for 15 February to address allegations raised by Trump’s co-defendant Michael Roman that the district attorney Fani Willis had an improper romantic relationship with one of her prosecutors.

The scandal intensified more than a week after the allegations against Willis surfaced in a Jan. 8 motion filed by former Republican campaign aide Michael Roman, who is one of more than a dozen co-defendants facing charges in the unprecedented RICO case against Trump in Georgia.

Days after the salacious allegations came to light, the case took a major unexpected turn when Willis received a subpoena to testify in Wade’s ongoing divorce proceedings on Jan. 23, lending credibility to the claims of an extramarital affair between Willis and Wade.

Meanwhile, the motion from Willis seeks to vanquish the subpoena in Wade’s divorce case, claiming “[Joycelyn] Wade is using the legal process to harass and embarrass District Attorney Willis, and in doing so, is obstructing and interfering with an ongoing criminal prosecution,” the filing states, according to The Atlanta Journal-Consitution.

Meanwhile, Roman’s motion urges Judge McAfee to immediately dismiss the charges and disqualify Willis from continuing to pursue the case against Trump and those accused alongside him.

So far, Willis has neither confirmed nor denied the salacious claims in Roman’s court motion, which also alleged the district attorney enriched herself through the ongoing relationship with attorney Nathan Wade, whom she hired in late 2021 to prosecute Trump on 13 criminal counts for his efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election result.

Previously, the DA’s spokesperson said Willis would respond fully to the allegations “through appropriate court filings.”

Willis handpicked Wade to handle the unprecedented case against Trump, ostensibly to minimize any perceived impropriety, as Trump was the first U.S. president to ever face criminal charges.

Although Roman’s legal filing did not cite direct evidence of the alleged affair, it did raise immediate questions about the validity of Willis’ indictment against Trump while also highlighting concerns over Willis’ professional conduct.

Willis remained mum on the scandal for nearly a week before she finally broke her silence in a Jan. 14 speech at Big Bethel AME Church in Atlanta, where she was invited to speak as part of a tribute to Martin Luther King Day.

However, she did not offer any specifics about her private life, and she never mentioned Wade by name, although she vaguely acknowledged some personal shortcomings, saying she was not a “perfect person.”

The debacle threatens to derail the prosecution as Roman’s filing claims Willis and Wade are actively involved in an extraordinary romance behind the scenes, constituting potential ethical and criminal violations.

Legal experts suggest Willis’ credibility is at serious stake and that she could face a legal review that could ultimately bring her downfall as Fulton County’s lead prosecutor.

In his motion, Roman also asserted that Wade is being paid a significantly higher salary than other Fulton County prosecutors, allowing him and Willis to travel together on lavish vacations, including several luxury cruises.

Roman’s petition showed Wade billed Fulton County $6,000 for 24 hours of work on Jan. 5, 2021, leading to accusations of honest services fraud — a federal crime involving improper kickbacks — which raises the prospect for Willis to face federal racketeering charges.

Since taking over the prosecution against Trump, Wade has received more than $654,000 in legal fees that Willis signed off.

In her speech before the congregation, however, Willis insisted that Wade is being paid the same as two other special prosecutors assisting him in the case against Trump




Willis faced immediate pressure to resign from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who represents Georgia’s 14th District, after she filed a complaint with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and state Attorney General Chris Carr, claiming Willis had engaged in criminal misconduct and an “illegal conflict of interest.”

Harrison Floyd, one of 18 people indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, along with Former President Donald Trump, is expected to face an Atlanta Judge Friday for a motion hearing.


Floyd, the former director of Black Voice for Trump, faces charges for his alleged involvement in the plot to get then-Fulton County election worker Ruby Freeman to falsely admit that she committed election fraud.





Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee will hear arguments on multiple motions; more than half of them aimed to dismiss three felony charges against Floyd.

Could The Georgia CRIMINAL Case Collapse After Allegations Against DA Fani Willis?

How Georgia prosecutor affair claims affect a TRUMP trial







TRUMP is trying to get charges that he meddled in the 2020 presidential election in Georgia thrown out because of the state district attorneys' conduct. Will he succeed?

The former president has been trying to get his criminal trials delayed, by various legal claims and technicalities.



But now something much more personal has emerged in the Georgia case which could yet work in his favour.

The central question is whether District Attorney Fani Willis and the special prosecutor she hired, Nathan Wade, had a romantic relationship which compromises the integrity of the case.

Ms Willis launched the investigation which led to 13 charges against the former president, including unlawfully conspiring to change the election result.

But in recent weeks it is the district attorneys' actions that are getting most scrutiny.


What's The Latest Development?


Ms Willis and Mr Wade have been issued with subpoenas by lawyers for one of Mr Trumps' co-defendants, Michael Roman.

The summonses call on them to appear at a hearing on 15 February to face questions about their alleged romantic relationship.

Mr Roman was an operations director on Mr Trump's 2020 presidential campaign and is seeking to have the charges against him dismissed.

He is accused of helping put forward a slate of fake pro-Trump electors (officials who certify election results), in Georgia and other battleground states.

On Friday, Ms Willis was also subpoenaed separately by the US House of Representatives' Judiciary Committee over allegations that she had fired a whistleblower who tried to stop a campaign aide from misusing federal funds.

It is part of a larger inquiry by congressional Republicans on whether the prosecutor used federal funds as part of her investigation into Mr Trump.





Ms Willis has described Mr Wade (right) as a "trusted friend"



What Are The Allegations Against Ms Willis?

In early January, Mr Roman filed a motion accusing Ms Willis of engaging in an "improper, clandestine personal relationship" with Mr Wade.

He claimed Mr Wade would not typically have been hired for the special prosecutor role due to his lack of experience.

His lawyer said the claims were based on sources and records from Mr Wade's divorce proceedings.

Documents filed in January in Mr Wade's divorce case suggest he paid for Ms Willis to join him on lavish trips while the case was under way.

Receipts provided by his ex-wife, Joycelyn Wade, appear to show the two took trips to Miami, San Francisco and Aruba. It is unclear whether he was reimbursed by Ms Willis.


How Does This Affect Donald Trump?

Trump has seized on the allegations.


He said on his social network, Truth Social, that the "lovebirds" are targeting him "in order to ENRICH themselves, and to live the Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous".

Mr Trump has since joined his co-defendant's motion to disqualify Ms Willis, arguing she violated state bar rules by claiming racism was motivating the effort to oust her.


How Has Fani Willis Responded?


The first black female district attorney for Fulton County, Ms Willis said earlier this month that her critics are playing "the race card".

In an emotional, 35-minute speech at a church's Martin Luther King Jr Day celebration, she said she appointed three prosecutors but "they only attacked one", adding that the other two outside lawyers are white.

A lawyer for Mr Roman has denied race was a factor in his accusations.


What Happens Next?


Ms Willis has until 2 February to respond in writing to the allegations.

The judge overseeing the case will hold a hearing on Mr Roman's claims on 15 February.

Mr Roman's lawyers have asked the court to compel both Ms Willis and Mr Wade to testify under oath during the hearing, as well as at least 10 other witnesses.


Could The Georgia Case Collapse?


The challenge could set back the proceedings, but there is so far no indication the case itself will collapse.

Anthony Michael Kreis, a professor at Georgia State University College of Law, told the BBC: "A disqualification poses a real danger to the work done by the Fulton County DA's Office."

He said the legal threshold to remove her over a conflict of interest would be high. But if the defendants persuade a judge to disqualify Ms Willis, her entire office would be off the case.


Another office would have to be appointed, Prof Kreis explained. In that scenario, it is possible the trials would proceed as planned.


Or the new prosecutor could "make light plea deals, or even give up on the endeavour entirely", said Prof Kreis.


Who is Nathan Wade?

Once a municipal court judge, Mr Wade is a trial attorney who has "decades of experience helping clients facing divorce, separation, and child-custody issues", according to his firm's website.

In her speech at the church, Ms Willis hailed him as a "great friend and a great lawyer", and a legal "superstar" with "impeccable credentials".

But his website and career show little experience with complex criminal cases like Mr Trump's - and Mr Roman has sought to question the prosecutor's CV in the wake of the allegations.


Still, Mr Wade was a "super competent judge" who was "timely, efficient with the docket and respectful", Holly Waltman, a criminal defence lawyer who knows him, told the BBC's US partner CBS News.

US Judge Delays TRUMPS' Federal 2020 Election Subversion Trial

FED Judge in DC Postpones TRUMPS' March Trial on Charges of Plotting to Overturn 2020 Election

Judge Tanya Chutkan orders delay in former presidents’ trial, which was due to start in Washington on 4 March


MailOnline 3 FEB 2024





A US judge has formally postponed Donald Trump’s trial on federal charges that the former president sought to overturn the 2020 election results.






The trial was due to start on 4 March in Washington before the delay ordered from the federal judge Tanya Chutkan.


Trial delays in general are not unusual in court cases. The delay in Trump’s trial in particular stems from an appeal by the ex-president that claims he is immune to prosecution for actions taken while he was in the Oval Office.

Chutkan had indicated in January that Trump’s original trial date – chosen last summer – would not hold because the case had been frozen by the former president’s appeal.

The judge has prohibited prosecutors from filing motions while the appeal is pending and made clear that Trump’s legal team would get a full seven-month period to prepare for the trial. Any time between December and the end of the appeals process would not count against that preparation period, Chutkan has also said.




Trump has been grappling with more than 90 criminal charges in various jurisdictions for subversion of the 2020 election, illegal retention of government secrets after he left the Oval Office, and hush-money payments to an adult film actor who has alleged extramarital sex with him.

TRUMP is NOT Immune From Prosecution in 2020 Election Interference Case, FED Appeals Court Rules


Bringing Him Closer to An Unprecedented Criminal Trial

Huge WIN For Jack Smith: A Federal Appeals Court Tuesday Ruled TRUMP Does NOT Have Immunity From Charges He Plotted to Overturn His 2020 Election Defeat

MailOnline 6 FEB 2024






A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected Trump´s claim that he cannot be prosecuted because the allegations relate to his official responsibilities as president.



The ruling, which Trump is almost certain to appeal, rebuffs his attempt to avoid a trial on charges that he undermined American democracy and the transfer of power, even as he consolidates his position as the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination.

Trumps lawyers argued that former presidents were entitled to sweeping legal protections and could not be criminally prosecuted for official actions unless first impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office by the Senate.

Trump was impeached twice by the House, but each time Senate Republicans cast sufficient votes to acquit him of the charges.

Judges homed in on the broad nature of Trump´s claim at a Jan. 9 hearing, questioning a Trump lawyer over whether even a president who ordered military commandos to assassinate a political rival could escape criminal prosecution without initial action by Congress.

Trump has repeatedly voiced his immunity claim on the campaign trail and social media, saying in a Jan. 18 post,

"ALL PRESIDENTS MUST HAVE COMPLETE TOTAL PRESIDENTIAL IMMUNITY, OR THE AUTHORITY DECISIVENESS OF A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WILL BE STRIPPED & GONE FOREVER."


The indictment brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith accuses Trump of using false claims of voter fraud to pressure state lawmakers, Justice Department officials and then-Vice President Mike Pence to thwart the certification of the election results. It is one four criminal cases facing Trump and one of two alleging interference in the 2020 election.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to four felony counts and accused prosecutors of a politically motivated effort to damage his campaign.

The immunity argument was previously rejected by U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan in December, prompting Trump to appeal.

Even if Trump´s argument is not accepted by courts, the appeal is likely to achieve his aim of delaying the scheduled March 4 trial and potentially pushing it until after the November election. The case is on hold while Trump appeals.

If Trump wins the election, he could seek to pardon himself or direct the Justice Department to shut down the case.




Trump can ask the full D.C. Circuit court and the U.S. Supreme Court to review the ruling, potentially leading to weeks or months of additional delay.

TRUMP faces 91 charges in four separate criminal cases; two federal, one in New York and one in Georgia.

Appeals Court Uses SURPRISE TACTIC to Prevent Further TRUMP Delays

2020 Election -FED Appeals Court Had Ruled TRUMP is NOT Immune From Criminal Prosecution


The DC Appeals Courts' ruling against TRUMP used a BRILLIANT tactic to prevent further TRUMP delay.


MailOnline 7 FEB 2024






The DC Appeals Court Have Made Their Ruling so AIRTIGHT and Bulletproof For Supreme Court to Overturn



A ruling by a federal appeals panel Tuesday determining former President Trump is not protected by presidential immunity in his election subversion case also propels the legal battle to get to the Supreme Court within days.

The rulings’ design essentially forces Trump to file an emergency appeal with the Supreme Court by 12 Feb if he wants to keep his trial schedule on hold, which would help align with his strategy to delay any potential conviction until after Novembers’ election.

Such an appeal would add a second historic Trump-related dispute onto the justices’ schedule; they will hear oral arguments Thursday about whether he can be disqualified from the ballot under the 14th Amendments’ insurrection clause due to his actions surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

The Supreme Court has yet to intervene in Trumps’ criminal cases. But the immunity issue now presents an imminent vehicle for the justices to get involved if they can

Movies Re: TRUMP in Supreme Court to DELAY Election Fraud Trial After Immunity Claim Rejecte

TRUMP Asks Supreme Court to DELAY January 6 Trial on Election Interference After Appeals Court Rejected His Immunity Claim

The move comes after decisive Appeals Court ruling against TRUMP. Judge Tanya Chutkan had originally set a March 4 trial date for TRUMP.

Ex-president met deadline imposed by federal appeals court to keep the criminal case on hold as he prepares a last-ditch challenge

The Guardian 13 FEB 2024







Lawyers for Donald Trump asked the US supreme court on Monday to keep on hold the criminal case over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results while he prepares to challenge a recent appeals court ruling that found he was not immune from prosecution.

The former US president also asked the nations’ highest court to stay the US court of appeals for the DC circuit order that prevented him from seeking what is known as an “en banc” rehearing of the case by the full bench of appeals judges.






Trumps’ application easily satisfies this Courts’ traditional factors for granting a stay of the mandate pending en banc review and review on certiorari by this Court,” Trumps’ lawyers John Sauer, John Lauro and Greg Singer wrote in the 110-page petition.

The petition argued that Trump had met the key tests for the supreme court to grant a stay because there was a strong likelihood it would hear the case and because without a stay, Trump would suffer “irreparable injury” if the case proceeded to trial in the interim.

“It is axiomatic that President Trumps’ claim of immunity is an entitlement not to stand trial at all, and to avoid the burdens of litigation pending review of his claim,” the petition said.

The filing broadly expounded earlier arguments Trump had made about presidential immunity, which his legal team has viewed as the best vehicle to delay the impending trial because it was a vehicle through which Trump could pursue an appeal before trial that also triggered an automatic stay.

Trump has made it no secret that his strategy for all his impending cases is to seek delay – ideally beyond the 2024 election in November, in the hopes that winning a second presidency could enable him to pardon himself or direct his attorney general to drop the charges.

For months, Trump has attempted to advance a sweeping view of executive power – that he enjoyed absolute immunity from prosecution because the conduct charged by the special counsel Jack Smith fell within the “outer perimeter” of his duties as president.

The contention received short shrift from the US district judge Tanya Chutkan, who is overseeing his case in Washington and rejected his argument. It received similar treatment from a three-judge panel at the DC circuit, which categorically rejected his position.

“We cannot accept former president Trumps’ claim that a president has unbounded authority to commit crimes that would neutralize the most fundamental check on executive power,” the unsigned but unanimous opinion from the three-judge panel said.


“At bottom, former president Trumps’ stance would collapse our system of separated powers by placing the president beyond the reach of all three [government] branches,” the opinion said. “We cannot accept that the office of the presidency places its former occupants above the law for all time thereafter.”

But Trumps’ lawyers have long viewed the immunity issue as more of a vehicle to stall the case from going to trial than an argument they would win on its merits. It was perhaps the only motion they could make that triggered an appeal before trial and came with an automatic stay.

Trump was forced to appeal directly to the supreme court, instead of making an intermediary challenge that would cause further delay, after the DC circuit panel issued parameters on how Trump could use further appeals if he wanted the case to remain frozen.

The panel ruled that Trump needed to petition the supreme court by Monday to keep the stay in place. The stay would remain until the supreme court either declined to hear the case or until it issued a judgment in the event it did agree to take up the matter.

Stay up to date on all of Donald Trump’s trials. Guardian staff will send weekly updates each Thursday – as well as bonus editions on major trial days.

That effectively foreclosed Trump from pursuing an “en banc” rehearing – which is where the full bench of judges at the DC circuit would reconsider the decision of the three-judge panel – since pre-trial proceedings under Chutkan would resume while he waited for the DC circuit to weigh in.

Over the weekend, Trumps’ chief appellate lawyer John Sauer prepared the application for a stay, a person familiar with the matter said.

The concern in recent days among the Trump legal team has been whether the supreme court would agree to keep the case frozen while Trump made his final appeal, the person said. And even if they granted the stay, it remains unclear whether the supreme court would ultimately agree to take up the case.



How the court moves next could decide whether Trump will go to trial on the federal election interference case before the 2024 presidential election. Recent public polls have shown that voters would be more inclined to vote for the Democratic incumbent Joe Biden, who defeated Trump in 2020, if Trump was convicted in this case.

If the supreme court declines to hear the case, it would return jurisdiction to Chutkan in the federal district court in Washington. Chutkan scrapped the 4 March trial date she initially scheduled, but has otherwise shown a determination to proceed to trial with unusual haste.

If the supreme court does accept the case, the question will be how quickly it schedules deadlines and arguments – and how quickly it issues a decision. The closer to the end of its term that the court issues a decision, the more unlikely a trial would take place before the election.

The speed with which the supreme court moves has become important because Chutkan has promised Trump that he would get the full seven months to prepare his trial defense that she envisioned in her original scheduling order that set the 4 March trial date.

Movies re: Jack Smith Shreds TRUMPs' Immunity-Asks Supreme Court to REJECT His Plea

Supreme Courts' SPEEDY Move Spells DISASTER For TRUMP

The Supreme Court is moving quickly to potentially reject Donald Trumps' claim of absolute immunity, setting the stage for his trial to move forward without delay.

MSN 14 FEB 2024






Last weeks' appeals court decision rejected his claim to absolute immunity from prosecution in special counsel Jack Smiths' election interference case.






Key Insights

The lower court panel unanimously ruled that Donald Trump doesn't have absolute immunity against prosecution, setting the stage for his trial to move forward.

The Supreme Court is moving quickly and may make a decision that this case does not need to be paused or stayed.

The Supreme Court gave Jack Smith a week, but he may reply within two to four days, speeding up the process.

The Supreme Court may issue an authoritative legal opinion shooting down Trump's claim of absolute immunity, following the lead of other judges who have already rejected it.


The urgency of the moment could lead to a summer trial, resolving the case well in advance of the November election.

Movies Re: Election Interference; Judge Holds Hearing of 'Misconduct' Against D.A. Fani Will

Judge on Fulton County Georgia Election Interference Case Against TRUMP Holds Hearing on Misconduct Allegations Against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.


High Stakes Evidence Hearing is Underway

Nathan Wade grilled by Trump attorney over when he had SEX with Fani Willis: Prosecutor insists he hasn't had 'intercourse' with DA since last summer in staggering back and forth in court


MailOnline 16 FEB 2024





'One of your motions you tried to implicate I slept with him at that conference, which I find to be extremely offensive'


TRUMPS' attorney drains the gutter making 'distasteful' allegations about D.A. Fani Willis, trying everything he could to get Trump election case dismissed







Fulton County Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade got grilled on intimate details of his relationship with DA Fani Willis in stunning televised testimony – telling a lawyer for Donald Trump when the couple had 'intercourse' even as lawyers argued the couple went back further than he admitted.





Robin Latrice Yeartie testified that Fulton County DA told her about meeting special prosecutor Nathan Wade at a judicial conference in 2019, in a bombshell hearing






Trumps' shady lawyer Steven Sadow asked Wade about when precisely he had a 'personal relationship' with Willis, who along with Wade is fighting to remain as prosecutors on the election interference case in the state.


Wade told him that his relationship with Willis ended in the summer of 2023, prompting Sadow to ask if they had 'any personal relationship at all' at that point.

'Are you asking me have I had intercourse with the district attorney?' Wade shot back.

'The answer would be no.'

'You say personal. We’re very good friends,' he told Sadow. 'Probably closer than ever because of these attacks. But if you’re asking me about specific intercourse, the answer is no.'

Wade went back to the matter after spending hours on the stand, standing by a signed affidavit where he said the personal relationship began in 2022.

'Lets be clear: 2022 was the start of any intimate sexual relationship with the district attorney,' he said.

The stunning testimony came after multiple efforts by lawyers and the judge overseeing the case to use more euphemistic terms, including 'personal relationship,' 'dating,' and a 'romantic' relationship.'

The DA herself spoke to the early days of the relationship in her own explosive testimony, and bristled at a lawyer's suggestion they dated after meeting at a 2019 judicial conference.

She bristled that in 'one of your motions you tried to implicate I slept with him at that conference, which I find to be extremely offensive,' she told lawyer Ashleigh Merchant in her own testimony.

She snapped that Merchant tried 'to implicate that you slept with somebody the first day you met them.'

But the timing is critical, in part because of Wade's testimony that the personal relationship began in 2022, which puts the commencement after he went on the Fulton County payroll as a special prosecutor.

After a series of lawyers tried to poke holes in his testimony, Anna Cross, who represents Willis, asked Wade questions if there was a situation at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic that made him particularly vulnerable.

'In 2020 and a portion of 2021 I was battling cancer. And that prevented me from pretty much leaving environments that are sterile. I had health on my mind,' he said.

Fulton County DA Fani Willis went on international trips, dinner dates, and exotic excursions with the 'lover' who was a member of her prosecution team, but reimbursed him with cash payments, special prosecutor Nathan Wade said in explosive court testimony.


'It was cash – she didn’t give me any checks,' Wade said after getting grilled on the witness stand during an evidentiary hearing, after attorneys in the Donald Trump election overturn case sought to have the couple disqualified from the case.


Wade faced a barrage of questions both about the timing and nature of his 'romantic' relationship with Willis, and how he accounted for expenses while his firm earned more than $600,000 from the county.

'I never purchased a gift for Ms. Willis,' Wade said under repeated questioning by lawyer Ashleigh Merchant.

He said the pairs' accounting came in part due to Willis' concerns about being a high-profile figure while prosecuting Trump and 18 alleged coconspirators.

For safety reasons, she would limit her transactions,' he said. 'I used my business card for everything,' he said of his transactions.

He also attempted to swat down any notion that Willis was a financial free rider in the relationship, which he said began only in 2022 after he had entered a contract to do work for her office.



'You understand that she’s a very independent proud woman, so she’s going to insist that she carries her own weight. It actually was a point of contention between the two of us. She is going to pay her own way,' Wade said.

Hearing of 'Misconduct' Against D.A. Fani Willis - Testimony Suddenly Halted...

'What a Shock': Lawyers Decline Further Questioning of Fani Willis


AP 16 FEB 2024






District Attorney Fani Willis' testimony in her disqualification hearing wrapped up early after the state opted not to question her Friday morning.


Willis, who was expected to take the stand during the second day of the hearing, is facing potential disqualification after attorneys representing former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants in her Georgia election interference case raised concerns about her romantic relationship with a lawyer she placed on the case, Nathan Wade.

Willis provided testimony toward the end of the first day of the hearing on Thursday, but lawyers declined to continue questioning her on Friday.




The Fulton County prosecutors felt they got enough from Fani Willis’ testimony to beat back the disqualification attempts, making further testimony unnecessary-

Maybe they simply could NOT produce the required evidence ..




'Willis is done. She was devastatingly effective overall in explaining the truth. There are no grounds for disqualification as I & virtually every credible expert has said from the get-go'

Supreme Court Allows Sanctions Against TRUMP Lawyers Over 2020 Election Lawsuit


LOSER TRUMPS Fraud Loss is HIGHER Than Many Realize...In total, TRUMPS legal losses have hit $600 million, with more trials to come.


Witness Backs Up Fani Willis' Testimony


MSN 21 FEB 2024






The justices leave in place an appeals court ruling that partly upheld sanctions arising from a lawsuit claiming that presidential election results in Michigan were rigged.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected appeals brought by Trump-allied lawyers who faced legal sanctions for baselessly alleging in court that the 2020 election in Michigan was fraudulently won by President Joe Biden.


By rejecting the appeals, the court left in place a June 2023 ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that partially upheld the sanctions.

Prominent cheerleaders of former President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the election including Sidney Powell and Lin Wood were among the nine lawyers who initially faced sanctions for filing the lawsuit. Powell called the group "the Kraken."

The appeals court upheld sanctions against seven of them, including Powell and Wood.

The lawyers were ordered to pay legal fees, undertake new legal training and were referred to their respective state bar associations for any disciplinary procedures.






Wine Tasting Host Backs Up Fani Willis' Testimony

After spending more than two hours tasting wine at a Napa Valley estate with her top prosecutor on the Georgia election subversion case, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis reached into her purse and pulled out about $400 in cash.

Willis used the money to pay for two bottles of wine – each valued at roughly $150 – and the $50 tasting, according to Stan Brody, who said he hosted Willis and a guest he later learned was Nathan Wade, at Acumen Wines in early 2023.

The comment sparked a ripple of laughter from the audience.

Supreme Court Upholds Sanctions Against Sidney Powell and Others Over 2020 Election Suit in Michigan

U.S. Supreme Court has decided NOT to hear an appeal from a group of lawyers, who faced sanctions in Michigan over their involvement in baseless claims of election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

MSN 24 FEB 2024







Detroit calls for pro-Trump attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood to be disbarred for spreading 'objectively false allegations'



This decision leaves in place a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, which upheld the sanctions imposed on the lawyers.


The legal battle stems from a lawsuit filed in Michigan by Powell, Wood, and others attempting to overturn the state’s election results.

The lawsuit, which alleged widespread fraud in the electoral process, was part of a broader effort by allies of TRUMP to challenge the outcome of the 2020 election.

In response to the lawsuit, a district court in Michigan imposed sanctions on the lawyers, ordering them to pay over $175,000 to cover the legal fees incurred by the city of Detroit and the state in defending against the baseless claims.

Additionally, the lawyers, including Powell and Wood, were referred to the bar associations in their respective states for disciplinary proceedings.

The district court justified the sanctions as a deterrent against future lawsuits that are primarily aimed at spreading false narratives about the integrity of the election process. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit upheld the sanctions but reduced the monetary penalty to just over $150,000.

The Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the appeal effectively upholds the lower court rulings, reinforcing the consequences for lawyers who engage in litigation that is deemed frivolous, misleading, or lacking legal merit.

Sidney Powell, known for her dramatic assertion that she would “release the Kraken” in reference to legal challenges against the 2020 election results, has been at the center of multiple legal actions related to her involvement in efforts to overturn the election.

In addition to the Michigan sanctions, Powell faced charges in a racketeering case brought by the Fulton County District Attorney in Georgia. In August, Powell was charged in the Georgia case, which accused her of participating in a scheme to spread false information about the election.

In October, she reached a plea deal with prosecutors, agreeing to plead guilty to six misdemeanor counts. The charges and plea deal were part of a broader effort to hold individuals accountable for their roles in promoting unfounded claims of election fraud.

The Supreme Court’s decision not to take up the appeal is seen as a significant development in the legal fallout from the baseless challenges to the 2020 election.

It underscores the importance of maintaining the integrity of the legal system and discouraging legal actions aimed at undermining public confidence in the electoral process.

While the sanctions in Michigan focused on the financial penalties and disciplinary referrals, they also serve as a cautionary tale for lawyers who may consider engaging in similar litigation tactics in the future.

The legal consequences faced by Powell, Wood, and their colleagues highlight the responsibility that attorneys bear in upholding the principles of the legal profession and respecting the rule of law.

Fulton County prosecutors' divorce attorney testifies in Fani Willis case


MSNBC 28 FEB 2024





A Georgia lawyer who had been billed as a star witness in the effort to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis did not deliver damaging testimony Tuesday on her romantic relationship with prosecutor Nathan Wade.





Instead, the lawyer, Terrence Bradley, said he did not recall when asked a number of key questions during the two-hour hearing in Atlanta.

Most notably, he said he did not know when the relationship began – and whether it began after Willis hired Wade to spearhead the prosecution of Donald Trump and his allies. Bradley said he was speculating about the timeline.


Here are some key takeaways from the hearing:

Bradley – repeatedly – said he didn’t know when the relationship between Wade and Willis began. “I do not have knowledge of it starting, or when it started,” Bradley said at one point.

Bradley said he was speculating when he told a defense lawyer about the relationship. “I was speculating, I didn’t have a – no one told me. I was speculating,” Bradley said.

Things and the Judge got testy when various defense lawyers had their chance to pressure Bradley. “Mr. Bradley, ‘speculation’ is kind of a weaselly lawyer word,” defense attorney Richard Rice said at one point. “Let’s speak truth here and you’re under oath.”



Terrence Bradley Didn't Deliver For TRUMP Team

This hearing is about evidence Terrence Bradley might have had, and for the defense teams that called him to the stand, he didn't deliver.

"He'd made some comments to you along the way that led you to believe he had more knowledge than today he's testifying that he had," Judge Scott McAfee said bluntly to defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant on Tuesday afternoon.

Merchant and other defense lawyers in the Georgia election subversion case have been trying to stand up, with days of evidence and witness testimony, allegations that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and the lead prosecutor she hired for the Trump case, Nathan Wade, began an ethically dubious relationship earlier than they've said. Both have testified the relationship started after Wade joined Willis' office in late 2021.


The defense lawyers, one after another in court, grew frustrated — and confirmed with Bradley he had no direct conversations with Wade or proof of the prosecutors' relationship beginning more than two years ago.


"I never witnessed anything," Bradley said under oath. "I do not have knowledge of it starting, or when it started."


He said he remembers only one conversation, at a time he can't recall, that Wade told him Wade and Willis were dating.

Fulton County Ethics Board Declines to Hear Complaints Against Fani Willis

Fani Willis Qualifies For Re-Election - TRUMP Loses AGAIN...

NBC 7 MAR 2024





The Fulton County Board of Ethics had decided not to hear two complaints against District Attorney Fani Willis.


The board was expected to hear the complaints Thursday. But by Thursday morning, the board had removed the complaints against Willis from the agenda.

Trump and several of his associates have been charged with a serious attempt to interfere with the state's 2020 presidential election results. The charges were made public after a thorough investigation led by Willis.

This investigation scrutinized Trump and his team's efforts to overturn Joe Biden's victory in Georgia, highlighting a controversial phone call Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In this call, Trump suggested Raffensperger could "find" enough votes to swing the election outcome in his favor.

These charges mark a significant development, as they directly involve a former U.S. president in allegations of undermining the electoral process.

TRUMP Georgia Election Case: Judge Dismisses 6 Counts, Keeps Others, As Decision Looms On Fani Willis

Judge in Georgia Election Case Dismisses Six Charges Against TRUMP and Others But Leaves Most of The Case Intact

Charges for soliciting officials to violate their oath of office were dismissed, although the other charges remain

The Guardian Australia 14 MAR 2024




Fulton county superior judge Scott McAfee dismissed some of the charges against Donald Trump

The Georgia judge overseeing the election-interference case against Donald Trump and 14 defendants dismissed six of the charges in the wide-ranging indictment on Wednesday, saying they were not detailed enough.


One of the 41 charges Trump and some of the co-defendants in the case were charged with was soliciting officials in Georgia to violate their oath of office. Those charges were dismissed. The other charges in the case against Trump and other defendants remain.

The six defendants who had the charge at issue in the case were Trump, Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows, John Eastman, Ray Smith and Robert Cheeley. In different ways all six men attempted to get Georgia officials to violate their oath of office as part of Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, prosecutors said in their August indictment.

Those efforts ranged from pressuring Georgia lawmakers to appoint fake electors, to Trump’s infamous phone call with the secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, urging him to find enough votes to overturn the election.

But McAfee said on Wednesday that Fani Willis, the Fulton county district attorney, had not given enough detail in charging documents as to what specific language in the oaths of office defendants were pressuring officials to violate. The August indictment says the defendants sought to get Georgia officials “to violate their oaths to the Georgia constitution and to the United States constitution”.

That language was too vague, McAfee said on Wednesday. “The United States Constitution contains hundreds of clauses, any one of which can be the subject of a lifetime’s study,” he wrote. “The Georgia Constitution is not a ‘mere shadow’ of its federal counterpart, and although some provisions feature similar language, the Georgia Constitution has been interpreted to contain dramatically different meanings.”

“As written, these six counts contain all the essential elements of the crimes but fail to allege sufficient detail regarding the nature of their commission, ie, the underlying felony solicited,” McAfee wrote in his opinion. “They do not give the Defendants enough information to prepare their defenses intelligently, as the Defendants could have violated the Constitutions and thus the statute in dozens, if not hundreds, of distinct ways.”

Jeff DiSantis, a spokesman for Willis’ office, declined to comment on the ruling, but said it was being reviewed.

All of the defendants continue to face racketeering charges.

“I think it is a minor hiccup for the DA and less so signs of a fatal flaw,” said Anthony Michael Kreis, a law professor at Georgia State University who has been closely following the case. “It was never particularly clear what constitutional theory undergirded the oath of office charges. I suspect the DA’s office will button up their theory and go back to the grand jury.

“The ruling is consistent with Judge McAfee’s approach all along. It is a very thorough opinion,” he added. “Importantly, I think he’s explaining the law in very plain terms, which I think is meant to communicate what he’s doing and why to the public in addition to the parties. That suggests to me that he understand his rulings need a public education component, too.”

Fani Willis to Continue as Top Prosecutor in TRUMP Georgia Case BUT Nathan Wade MUST Step Down

Judge Scott McAfee’s ruling comes after hearing on Willis’s romantic relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade

The Guardian Australia 15 MAR 2024





A judge in Georgia has ruled that the district attorney Fani Willis can continue to head the prosecution of Donald Trump for trying to undermine the 2020 presidential election in the state, as long as a top deputy steps down.



The ruling came after hearings that offered a dramatic deviation from the racketeering case against Trump and 14 remaining co-defendants as it investigated Willis’s romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, a special prosecutor in the case.

The question at the heart of the matter was whether Willis had a conflict of interest in the case because of her relationship with Wade. Michael Roman, one of the 14 remaining defendants in the case, filed a motion in January saying Willis should be disqualified from handling the case because of her romantic relationship with Wade, which was not publicly known at the time.

The two eventually admitted their relationship, but said it did not begin until 2022, after Wade was hired to work on the Trump case. Wade acknowledged that he paid for vacations for the two of them to places such as Napa in California and Aruba, but he and Willis both said she paid him back in cash.

The hearing dived deeply into the personal lives of Wade and Willis, and featured dramatic testimony from Willis in which she bluntly accused Roman’s lawyers of lying and sought to regain control over one of the most high-stakes trials in America.

It also muddied the waters of the case – transforming a blockbuster prosecution about a criminal scheme to overturn the election into a salacious hearing about the love life of the district attorney. It was a transformation that Willis seemed keenly aware of when she took the stand in mid-February.

“You’re confused. You think I’m on trial. These people are on trial for trying to steal an election in 2020. I’m not on trial, no matter how hard you try to put me on trial,” she said.

The strongest testimony for defense lawyers came from Robin Bryant-Yeartie, a former friend of Willis’s who said the relationship between Wade and Willis began before Wade was hired. Willis’s lawyers cast Bryant-Yeartie as a disgruntled former employee of the district attorney’s office who had an axe to grind. No other witness corroborated her testimony.

The star witness for the defense was supposed to be Terrence Bradley, a former law partner of Wade’s. Bradley had told Roman’s lawyer that he knew the relationship began before Wade was hired, but when hetook the witness stand he refused to confirm what he said in text messages to her, and said he was only speculating.







UPDATE: Nathan Wade Has just RESIGNED...

Rudy Giuliani Gets Legal News He’s Been Dreading -Giuliani Rages at Judge Over Fani Willis Ruling

Judge Denies TRUMPS' Motion to Remove Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis From RICO Case


Creditors are coming after Rudy Giulianis' $3.5 million Florida condo in bankruptcy filing


MSNBBC 17 MAR 2024








Rudy Giuliani has attacked Judge Scott McAfee who on Friday ruled that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis can continue prosecuting Donald Trump and other defendants, including the former New York mayor, in the Georgia election-interference case


Giuliani was one of 18 people indicted alongside Trump over claims they broke the law while attempting to overturn Joe Biden's 2020 presidential election victory in the state of Georgia.

Trump's legal team was hoping to have Willis removed from the Georgia case, at the minimum necessitating a long delay and potentially causing the trial to collapse.

Speaking on conservative network Newsmax, Giuliani, a close Trump ally and legal adviser following the 2020 presidential election, hit out at McAfee's decision. He said: "This is absurd. This judge is a disgrace. He's an absolute disgrace.

"This woman [Willis] committed perjury right in front of him...


What kind of a sissy boy is he?

The woman made a fool out of him, treated him like garbage... This judge has so little regard for the law."
Giuliani was charged on 13 counts including violating Georgia's anti-organized crime RICO act, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree and conspiracy to file false documents.

He, like Trump, has pled not guilty to all charges and strongly denies any wrongdoing.

On Friday, Giuliani also reiterated his concerns about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

He posted: "It's no coincidence that three of the states with the most questions concerning election integrity and secure voting also happen to be the largest 'Swing States' in the country.

"Pennsylvania (#5), Georgia (#8), and Michigan (#10) saw some of the worst problems in 2020..." Giuliani added.


Creditors are Coming After Rudy Giulianis' $3.5 Million Florida Condo





Rudy Giuliani may have to sell his Palm Beach condo to settle his bankruptcy debts.




Creditors pointed out the $3.5 million property is NOT exempt in his Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.


Giuliani filed for bankruptcy in December following a $148 civil judgment against him.

“I was an out-of-control drug addict,” Lindell once admitted.


The 55-year-old explained that he started abusing cocaine in the 1980s, but switched over to crack in the 1990s. His drug use continued into his company’s earliest days

FED Judge Rules Ex-TRUMP Lawyer John Eastman Must be Disbarred

Judge rules Ex-TRUMP lawyer, 2020 election subversion defendant, John Eastman be disbarred...



** TRUMP spent $90K-a-day on legal fees since 2020 — and none of it was his money

AP 28 MAR 2024





A California state bar judge ruled Wednesday that John Eastman, a co-defendant of former President Donald Trump in Georgia's 2020 election subversion case, should be disbarred.





"Eastman's wrongdoing constitutes exceptionally serious ethical violations warranting severe professional discipline," California State Bar Court Hearing Judge Yvette Roland wrote her 128-page ruling.


Eastman was a Trump lawyer during the real estate mogul's tenure in the White House and is one of 19 defendants, along with the former president, accused in the Georgia case of participating in a conspiracy to overturn President Joe Biden's 2020 election victory, which culminated in the Jan 6. 2021, attack on Congress.

The Nebraska native is described as one of the main architects of the plan to replace legitimate Biden electors with fake Trump electors in several battleground states. As part of the scheme, he is accused of pushing the idea that Trump's vice president, Mike Pence, had the authority to delay or adjourn the certification of Biden as the 46th president of the United States.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In September of 2021, the State Bar of California opened an investigation into Eastman and the 11 disciplinary charges filed against him in January 2023.


Following a more than 35-day trial that involved 23 witnesses and more than 700 exhibits, Roland issued her judgment Wednesday, finding Eastman culpable of 10 of those disciplinary charges of failing to support.

"As counsel for President Trump during a disputed presidential election, Eastman made multiple patently false and misleading statements in court filing, in public remarks heard by countless Americans and to others regarding the conduct of the 2020 presidential election and Vice President Pence's authority to refuse to count or delay counting properly certified slates of electoral votes on January 6, 2021," Roland said.

"These statements, made with varying degrees of intent, were improperly aimed at casting doubt on the legitimate election results and support for the baseless claim that the presidency was stolen from his client -- all while relying on his credentials as an attorney and constitutional scholar to lend credibility to his unfounded claims."


She continued that Eastman's lack of remorse and accountability present "significant risk" that he may engage in further unethical conduct that could be a threat to the public.

TRUMP Lawyer Argues Free Speech Should DISMISS Georgia Election Interference Case

Georgia TRUMP Case: Judge hearing motions in ELECTION INTERFERENCE INDICTMENT


The Guardian 28 MAR 2024





Georgia Election Interference: TRUMP lawyers argue that even his ‘LIES’ are protected


An attorney for former President Donald Trump argued in a Georgia court on Thursday that the election interference charges in the state against him should be thrown out because his statements are protected by the First Amendment.





Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee heard arguments from Trump attorney Steven Sadow, who claimed that without Mr Trump’s statements, no charges would have been brought.




The prosecution for the state argued that Mr Trump’s lies were used to push a criminal conspiracy and that Mr Trump has not been charged for lying, “he has been charged for lying to the government” as part of a “pattern of criminal conduct”.


Mr Sadow filed a motion late last year arguing that Mr Trump’s false claims of election fraud were political speech, and as such, he should never have been indicted in the first place.

Thumbs Up re: Jack Smith Shreds TRUMPs' Immunity-Asks Supreme Court to REJECT His Plea

NO, Donald Trump, Fraud is NOT Protected by The First Amendment

The Supreme Court has recently held that: The “First Amendment does not shield fraud”


Sabrina Haake MSRAW 31 MAR 2024

---Sabrina Haake is a columnist and 25 year litigator specializing in 1st and 14th Amendment defense.





On Thursday, former President Donald Trump’s lawyers appeared in court in Fulton County, Ga., to argue that election fraud is protected by the First Amendment.


Trump’s counsel described Trump’s efforts to overturn his electoral defeat in Georgia as “core political speech” entitled to heightened legal protection. In Trump-speak, when he called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and pressured him to “find” 11,780 votes to change the election’s outcome, Trump was merely engaging in protected political expression.


Trump’s counsel argued before Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee that “Criminalizing President Trump’s speech and advocacy disputing the outcome of the election, while speech endorsing (Biden’s win) is viewed as unimpeachable, is blatant viewpoint discrimination,” prohibited by the First Amendment.

While it is legally accurate to say that political viewpoint discrimination is a prohibited form of content discrimination, words of advocacy intended and likely to incite imminent lawless action, are not — and have never been — protected under the First Amendment.


As to fraud in particular, the Supreme Court has recently held that:


The “First Amendment does not shield fraud”

Fraudulent representations through speech for personal gain are “not protected by the First Amendment”

The “prevention and punishment of” fraud has “never been thought to raise any Constitutional problem”


It's the same rationale under which hiring a hitman, inciting a riot, inducing fraud, impersonating a government official or promoting a Ponzi scheme — although typically done with mere words — are not protected under the First Amendment. Trump would have the Georgia court protect his words by divorcing them from their meaning.


Enter The Bible Grift

Coming from a presidential candidate shamelessly hawking Bibles for $59.99 (plus shipping and handling), Trump’s manipulation of the First Amendment should come as no surprise.

The First Amendment has carefully guarded Americans’ core freedoms of religion and speech since it was adopted in 1791.

After the Constitution was ratified three years earlier, the First Congress of the United States proposed 12 amendments to it. First among them was the preeminent guarantee that the government would stay out of religion — forever — by neither establishing nor prohibiting its practice.

Cognizant of centuries of religious persecution, serious men of the First Congress did not stutter, demur or obfuscate. Their opening salvo in the First Amendment, now known as the Establishment Clause, declares that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

“Congress” in this context includes the federal government, since allowing the U.S. president or judicial branch to promote religion while prohibiting Congress from doing so would render the separation of church and state meaningless.


Trump is not so constrained.


To support his Bible sales, Trump’s three-minute promotional video says he wants to “Make America Pray Again” with a Bible “inspired by Lee Greenwood’s patriotic anthem.”

To solidify the symbolic merger of church and state, Trump’s Bible includes copies of the U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Pledge of Allegiance. His Truth Social promotion declares, “Religion and Christianity are the biggest things missing from this country… Order yours today! Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.”

Who knew a country music singer alive today inspired the Bible? Or that Bibles could be monetized to pay royalties to Trump like his steaks, Trump University or gold lamé sneakers? If Christian Nationalism weren’t so dangerous, the swindle would be funny.


Weaponizing Ignorance


Trump’s adversarial relationship with the U.S. Constitution demonstrates how he weaponizes the ignorance of his uneducated base. He gaslights them into believing up is down.

In late 2022, for example, Trump claimed that the 2020 election “fraud” — Biden won, of course — “allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

Trump either seeks to terminate the Constitution, or invoke it, depending on his needs. Ignorant of early American history, as well as world history where millions of people have perished in the name of religion

Trump and his MAGA base want to declare the United States a “Christian nation.” Trump and his un-Christ-like CINOs (Christians in Name Only) blindly seek power, and have calculated — perhaps accurately — that falsely claiming religious persecution is the surest way to get it.

Moving to dismiss Georgia’s criminal election fraud indictment as unconstitutional, his counsel argued that the criminal indictment “directly targets core protected political speech and activity,” meaning Trump’s words were just words and the conduct he tried to orchestrate was immaterial.

Extending the theory, Trump’s words didn’t march into the U.S. Capitol with zip ties to assault elected officials on January 6, 2021 — just like guns don’t shoot people, people shoot people.
Trump continues to argue he is above the law

Trump’s claim that he is free to engage in election fraud — a crime — comports with his belief that presidents can commit crimes with impunity because of presidential immunity.

Trump’s immunity argument, still outrageously pending before the Supreme Court, asserts, “A denial of criminal immunity would incapacitate every future President with de facto blackmail and extortion while in office, and condemn him to years of post-office trauma at the hands of political opponents.”



It is apparently lost on MAGA and Trump’s legal team that, for nearly 250 years, no president before Trump ever disseminated national security documents, tried to extort the leader of a foreign government, or incited a violent insurrection on hallowed Capitol grounds. Trump is generously taking one for the team by looking out for presidents of the future.

Applying Trump’s putative immunity in the Georgia case — under the First Amendment or otherwise — a sitting president would have the right to strongarm state election officials, advance a fraudulent slate of electors, impersonate elected officials, “find” 11,780 non-existent votes, and change the outcome of an election.

After all, to Trump’s legal team, them’s just words.





Former President Donald Trump on Easter lashed out at "cowards and weaklings" in the Republican Party.

2020 Election FRAUD; Charges Imminent in Arizona FAKE Elector Case; GOP Congressmen Subpoenaed

Congressmen Gosar & Biggs have close ties to fake elector plan

MSNBBC 8 APR 2024






Congressmen Gosar & Biggs



Donald Trump may be having success delaying his federal criminal trials, but state investigations into the fake elector scheme to overturn the election are advancing apace

Politico reports that Arizona's attorney general is close to announcing indictments. Kyle Cheney, senior legal affairs reporter for Politico, talks with Alex Wagner about his reporting on Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar receiving subpoenas.


Attorney General Kris Mayes again said her investigation of the Republican electors who falsely claimed Donald Trump won Arizona in 2020 would wrap up "very soon" as new details came to light about the broadening reach of the probe.

"As I've said all along, we are engaged in a very serious, very professional investigation into what happened with the fake electors," Mayes told reporters on Thursday following a news conference on a different topic. "I'm not ready to stand before you here today and announce anything, but we will have something for you on that front very soon."

The same day, news organization Politico reported that Mayes' investigation included two subpoenas to U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, both Arizona Republicans. The subpoenas sought their testimony before a grand jury, and do not indicate Mayes might bring charges against them, according to Politico.

Mayes had previously said her investigation was focused on the 11 other Republicans who falsely certified after the 2020 election that Donald Trump had won. Democrat Joe Biden narrowly won the state. The subpoenas indicate a more broad look at efforts to overturn Trump's loss.

Both congressman were closely tied to the plan to create slates of alternate electors — so-called fake electors — to keep Trump in the White House over the will of voters.

Gosar was outlining his argument for challenging Arizona's election result when rioters overtook the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Biggs, in text messages to Trump aide Mark Meadows three days after the election, said in "states where there's been shenanigans" he should submit alternate electors for Trump and have Republican-led legislatures formally support him.

A spokesperson for Mayes declined to comment on the Politico report, as did a spokesperson for Gosar. A spokesperson for Biggs did not respond to an email request for comment.

Several others have received subpoenas from an Arizona grand jury, signs that Mayes' investigation is nearing its conclusion.

‘Scathing Rebuke’: Jack Smith Shreds TRUMPs' Immunity Claim in New Supreme Court Brief Filing

'The Most Critical Piece': Jack Smith Tells SCOTUS to REJECT TRUMPs' Immunity Plea on The 2020 Presidential Election FRAUD Case



MSRAW 9 APR 2024





Special Counsel Jack Smith filed Monday his argument to the Supreme Court against Donald Trumps presidential immunity plea, court records show.







EXHAUSTED Smith delivered a 66-page condemnation of the former presidents' claim that his actions between the 2020 presidential election and U.S. Capitol riots on Jan. 6, 2021, are beyond the reach of prosecution in the special counsels' federal election interference case.


"Petitioner’s use of official power was merely an additional means of achieving a private aim—to perpetuate his term in office," Smith writes. "That is prosecutable based on private conduct."


The nation's highest court is slated to hear arguments on 25 April on whether Trump can face prosecution in Judge Tanya Chutkans' courtroom. That case has stalled as this argument worked its way through the appeals court system.




While Trump contends a president must enjoy absolute immunity to represent the nation as its commander in chief, Smith argues such power would undercut the fundamental structures of American democracy.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges levied by Smith.

Former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance was among the first to spot the filing, and took particular interest in Smiths' plea, buried in the outline of his argument.

"This may be the most critical piece," Vance wrote. "Smith tells the Court, even if you think there might need to be some immunity for a president, it's not this case. Let this one go to trial."







BROKEN...






Smiths’ brief tells SCOTUS 'Don’t Sacrifice The American Experiment on The ALTAR of TRUMP’














Now Trump SINKS EVEN LOWER and says Biden RELIEVED himself on Oval Office desk;

'Soiled:' Trump suggests Biden relieved himself on Oval ...


'AND that it would be a "great honor" to be jailed like Nelson Mandela'

Speaker Johnson Unveils New Hardline Voting Law Alongside TRUMP-Johnson FALSEY Claims Democrats are Trying to Turn Illegals' Into Voters

MSRAW 13 APR 2024






SLIMEY and SLY at Mar-A-Lago



On Friday, TRUMP and House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-Louisiana) gave a joint press conference at Mar-a-Lago to introduce an initiative aimed at preventing non-citizens from voting.

But one Fox News host slammed that policy proposal as a red herring.


Johnson joined Trump for the press conference in the wake of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) threatening to bring a motion to vacate to the floor of the House of Representatives in protest of Johnson's bipartisan efforts to keep the federal government open. Trump made it clear that Johnson had his support, despite Greene saying on Friday that the speaker was "full of sh--" during an interview with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

During the press conference, with Trump scowling behind him, Johnson promised to introduce legislation "to require that every single person who registers to vote in a federal election must prove that they're an American citizen first."

Of course, as Punchbowl News' John Bresnahan tweeted, US residents who lack citizenship "can’t vote in federal elections [and] haven’t been able to do so for decades." During a Friday segment on Fox News' The Five, panelist Richard Fowler echoed that sentiment, casting doubt on the need for a new law on the books to ban non-citizens from voting.

"This press conference was billed as an 'election integrity' press conference," Fowler said. "In 1996 congress passed the illegal immigration reform and immigration responsibility act. That act makes it explicitly illegal for noncitizens to vote."

"According to The Heritage Foundation's database on voter fraud, there’s been fewer than 50 cases of noncitizens voting in elections since 2002," he continued. "Not only has the Heritage Foundation said this, the Bipartisan Policy Center has said this, the Brennan Center for Justice has said this, the FBI has said this."

"Over and over and over again, people keep saying there's 'voter fraud,' and there's no evidence of voter fraud. There's no evidence of non-citizens voting in federal elections. " Fowler added. "And until they prove that, this press conference to me was null and void."

Under current law, any non-citizen that tries to vote in a federal election can be charged with a felony, fined heavily and potentially deported. And as Fowler explained, the Brennan Center for Justice debunked the phantom issue of non-citizen voting, breaking down what it would entail in a recent post to its website.


"Imagine you’re an undocumented person living in the United States," wrote the Brennan Center's Sean Morales-Doyle. "Would you risk everything — your freedom, your life in the United States, your ability to be near your family — just to cast a single ballot?"

"It’s a federal crime for noncitizens to vote in federal elections. It’s also a crime under every state’s laws," he added. "In fact, under federal law, you could face up to five years in prison simply for registering to vote."
