Democrats suffer major setbacks in two of the Trump show trials | Eastern North Carolina Now

court rulings threaten to derail both cases


The politically motitvated Democrat show trials against President Donald Trump in Georgia and Florida have had court rulings that could sink both cases. The Florida ruling could also take down the DC case as well.

In the Fulton County, Georgia case run by DA Fani Willis, the Georgia Court of Appeals had already set the appeal on the motion to remove Willis from the case for hearing October 4. The court's decision would be expected weeks later.  Now, the Court of Appeals has issued another order staying all proceedings in that case in the Fulton County Superior Court until the Court of Appeals rules on the appeal concerning whether to remove Willis.

In the Florida classified documents case, the judge has already postponed it indefinitely due to evidence tampering by the prosecution.  Now Judge Cannon has set a hearing on a motion to disqualify Special Counsel Jack Smith as being illegally appointed to that position.  Two former United States Attorneys General had previsouly filed a Friend of the Court brief with the US Supreme Court setting out how Merrick Garland had failed to follow federal law in his appointment of Smith and that Smith failed to qualify for such an appointment under the standards of federal special counsel law.  Judge Cannon has ruled that outside experts, presumably including those former US Attorneys General will be allowed to make presentations in her court on the issue.  That hearing will be held on June 21.

If Jack Smith is disqualified in the Florida case, it is likely also to have the same impact in the DC case he has filed against Trump, as that one is in federal court like the Florida case.

The Fani Willis hearing is another stinky situation with a political contributor judge. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, who presides over the Trump case, and his wife are both political campaign contributors to DA Fani Willis. While that raises some questions about his fairness and objectivity in the overall Trump case, it was a blatant conflict of interest for him to be ruling on the motion to remove Willis. Willis at the time was engaged in a serious primary challenge from a fellow Democrat, and McAfee's failure to remove her probably saved her bacon in that primary.

I have not read if Georgia has a specific ethics rule against political contributions by judges as New York, the federal system, North Carolina and most states do. But even if technically legal, which the contribution may or may not have been, it clearly created a huge conflict of interest for him to be ruling on a politically critical motion to the recipient of his campaign contribution. This is yet another clearly crooked Democrat judge.

A good example of how being poltiical contributors corrupts judges is to look at the Colorado Supreme Court trying to take Trump off of the election ballot, which was later unanimously reversed by the US Surpeme Court. The all-Democrat Colorado Supreme court split 4 to 3 to remove Trump. The four who voted to remove Trump were all Democrat campaign contribotors, while the three who opposed that did not make political contributions to anyone. Colorado is in the minority where ethics rules do not restrict judges making political contributions, although from that ruling, clearly they should.
