GA Court Of Appeals Announces Pause On The Other Trump Case

I’m sure there was nothing political about this! The Georgia Court of Appeals just ordered a halt to the proceedings in the election interference case against Trump and eight other defendants, pending the outcome of their appeal seeking to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis. Via the Washington Post:

The order means the case, which accuses them of a criminal conspiracy to try to overturn Trump’s defeat in the state, will almost certainly not be scheduled for trial before the fall election or even the new year. It remains unclear if the case against the six remaining co-defendants who did not sign on to the appeal will proceed.

The court announced Monday that oral arguments in the appeal of Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee’s decision to allow Willis to continue prosecuting the case against Trump would happen in October, although the original tentative date is no longer set, according to a court spokeswoman. A new date had not been scheduled — though it was unlikely to occur before the fall, if the panel decides to hear oral arguments at all. A three-judge appeals panel has the duration of two full terms of its proceedings to issue a ruling, a period that would end in the first week of March.

Trump and the other defendants asked the appeals court to reverse McAfee’s March 15 ruling keeping Willis, a Democrat, and her office on the case despite their claims that she had engaged in an improper relationship with an outside attorney she had appointed to lead the investigation.

It doesn’t matter what they do to delay the inevitable. Ya boy is STILL a convicted felon!
