Democrat Lawyer Blasts DA Willis For Remaining On Trump Case

Democratic attorney Julian Epstein criticized Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for remaining on former President Donald Trump’s election interference case.

During an interview on “The Brian Kilmeade Show,” Epstein agreed that the judge made the right call in allowing the Trump team to appeal the case involving Willis and election interference.

“Well, I think if Fani Willis had any real interest in this case, she would resign or recuse herself from it. This is an utter embarrassment. I mean, this looks to me like, in my opinion, this was a kickback scheme, where she hired a boyfriend who was then providing her all kinds of benefits,” Epstein told the host on Thursday.

“I think the whole claim about the reimbursements is hard to believe. I think the claims about when the relationship began. I think those are very hard to believe. I think the judge was right to allow the Trump team to appeal. And, I think there’s not just that question about whether she should be kicked off the case. So I think there’s a question, potentially about perjury, moving forward that the state could take up and the legislature is going to look into. So I think there is, I mean, just, you know, the standard in Georgia is the major conflict or the apparent civil conflict,” Epstein added.

Continuing, he told Kilmeade: “And given that there is a strong appearance that Barney Lewis had any economic incentive for the case to move forward, I don’t know how you argue this is not an unbelievable conflict. In any case, this is an utter embarrassment, for the, you know, amongst many other embarrassments for, the … crowd that is, you know, prosecuting Trump in the 11th hour of this campaign.”

The judge in Georgia overseeing the case of election interference against Trump has allowed him and his co-defendants to appeal the order that denied the disqualification of Wills.

Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee issued a certificate of immediate review on Wednesday, which enables Trump and eight co-defendants to seek an appeal of the order.
