‘It Is A Lie!’: Fani Willis Explodes On Witness Stand, Judge Has To Step In | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis exploded in anger while on the witness stand Thursday, prompting Judge Scott McAfee to step in and call for a short recess.

    Willis grew increasingly rattled as she was being asked by defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant about her relationship with Nathan Wade, the man Willis tapped as special prosecutor in her sprawling election interference case against former former President Donald Trump.

    "Let's be clear, because you've lied," Willis yelled at Merchant, holding up documents. "It is a lie! It is a lie!"

    "You've been intrusive into people's lives," the DA continued to go after Merchant. "You think I'm on trial. I'm not on trial no matter how hard you try to put me on trial."

    Judge McAfee stepped in and called for a five-minute recess, seemingly so Willis could cool down. And upon returning to the courtroom, the judge informed Willis that he would be forced to strike her testimony if she engaged in any more outbursts on the stand.

    WATCH:


    During another tense moment on the stand, Willis maintained that she was not being a hostile witness and accused Merchant, Trump co-defendant Michael Roman's attorney, of having interests that are "contrary to democracy."

    WATCH:


    Willis took the stand in the evidentiary hearing after McAfee, earlier this week, found that it's possible Willis and Wade could be "disqualified" in their case against Trump.

    "I think it's clear that disqualification can occur if evidence is produced demonstrating an actual conflict or the appearance of one, and the filings submitted on this issue so far have been presented a conflict in the evidence that cannot be resolved," McAfee said.

    Notably, Willis has been accused by Roman of having a romantic relationship with Wade prior to hiring him as special prosecutor and then financially benefiting from the relationship.

    Since Roman's initial filing, Willis has confirmed that she and Wade did indeed have a romantic relationship, but insists that no impropriety occurred and the relationship started after she hired Wade for the Trump case.

    Earlier in the hearing, however, a former friend of Willis' testified that the DA started seeing Wade in 2019, before she hired him as special prosecutor.

    If McAfee does decide to remove Willis and Wade from the case, it would be up to the Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia to find another prosecutor to take up the case. That person could potentially continue on Willis' track to go after Trump, pursue only some of the charges, or even dismiss the case altogether.

Was it a judicious ploy for Joe Biden's FBI to execute the unprecedented raid of President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate?
  Yes; the Cheneys despise this former Republican president, and for good reason ... so they say.
  No; never has a former president been treated with this level of vindictive abuse by those temporarily in power.
  Who cares? It's Trump.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
