Trump Catches Huge Break


( – Catching a huge break after an unfair verdict that saw him getting convicted, a Georgia appeals court has put a hold on the 2020 election interference case against former President Donald Trump indefinitely.

This pause will last until a group of judges decides whether Democratic Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis can continue prosecuting the case.

Last month, a Georgia state court agreed to review an appeal from Trump’s defense team.

They argued that Willis should be disqualified from the case because of an alleged inappropriate relationship with the case’s former special prosecutor, Nathan Wade, as Trump’s defense believed this relationship created a conflict of interest.

The lower appeals court is expected to make a decision on Willis’s disqualification by mid-March 2025. This timeline makes it unlikely that Trump’s trial will start before the November presidential election.

Moreover, Judges Benjamin Land, Todd Markle, and Trenton Brown will hear the appeal. McAfee, the Fulton County Superior Judge, had planned to continue with pretrial motions while the appeal was ongoing.

However, the Georgia Court of Appeals issued a stay order this week, halting any progress on the case until further notice.

Previously, McAfee had allowed Willis to remain on the case if Wade stepped down. Nevertheless, he acknowledged that Willis’s actions showed a “tremendous lapse in judgment,” and he mentioned the case’s “odor of mendacity.”

This delay in Georgia follows Trump’s recent conviction in New York on 34 counts for falsifying business records.

Additionally, Trump’s case involving classified documents in Florida and his election interference case in Washington, D.C., has also been indefinitely paused this year.
