In the Trump election interference case in Georgia, Judge Scott McAfee pushes forward with a misconduct hearing, indicating the possible disqualification of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis if evidence supports financial benefits from the case.

Willis and prosecutor Nathan Wade, subpoenaed by co-defendant Michael Roman, face scrutiny over an alleged romantic relationship and financial gain. McAfee insists on an evidentiary hearing to establish facts surrounding the alleged conflict of interest.

Despite attempts to cancel the hearing and quash subpoenas, McAfee allows testimony, citing a “good faith basis for relevance.” While Willis denies financial conflict, Roman’s attorney asserts contrary evidence. The DA’s office labels the effort as “harassment,” while Trump accuses Willis of ethics violations.

The case involves allegations of racketeering to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia, with some defendants already taking plea deals.
