A big part of the summer news cycle has been tied up in the story about the RICO indictments that have been dropped against Trump in Georgia.
Remember that unusual eleven pm news conference talking about these indictments? Some reports claimed it was expidited was because someone in DC strongarmed the DA to get a move on these charges, since the Hunter Biden investigation drawing a little too much negative attention.
One way or another, these very hotly contested RICO charges went ahead and are a matter for the courts to sort out.
If it turns out that there political interference or other malfeasance can be demonstrated in this prosecution, that would be a game changer.
With a well-established pattern of throwing the kitchen sink at Trump to exhaust his time and deplete his resources, Georgia GOP saw the writing on the wall. Having no remedy for a prosecutor gone rogue, they created one.
Republican lawmakers in Georgia are working on ways to sanction Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, the prosecutor who brought criminal charges against former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants, including the use of a new state law that creates a commission that can punish or throw out prosecutors.
The Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission will begin proceedings in October, and comes after GOP Gov. Brian Kemp signed the measure into law earlier this year to form a board that will punish prosecutors they determine are committing violations or neglecting their job duties, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
State Sen. Clint Dixon, R-Gwinnett County, said Monday he plans to file a complaint against Willis when the commission goes into effect in October, and claimed that the indictments against Trump and the others were the result of her “unabashed goal to become some sort of leftist celebrity.”
“Once the Prosecutorial Oversight Committee is appointed in October, we can have them investigate and take action against Fani Willis and her efforts that weaponize the justice system against political opponents,” Dixon said on social media. “This is our best measure and I will be ready to call for that investigation.” — NewsMax
