Trump accuses DA of injecting race into Ga. election case

Published January 25, 2024

ATLANTA (AP) — Lawyers for former President Donald Trump said the district attorney in the Georgia election interference prosecution should be removed from the case, claiming she “inappropriately injected race into the case and stoked racial animus” in response to allegations of misconduct against her.

Defense attorneys Steve Sadow and Jennifer Little filed a motion Thursday joining an earlier effort by co-defendant Michael Roman to have Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, special prosecutor Nathan Wade and their offices thrown off the case. Ashleigh Merchant, a lawyer for Roman, filed a motion Jan. 8 accusing Willis of having an inappropriate romantic relationship with Wade that resulted in a conflict of interest.

Former President Donald Trump turned up the heat on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis Thursday with a court filing calling for the election interference charges against him to be dropped.

The filing piggybacked on a claim from co-defendant Mike Roman filed earlier this month alleging Willis had a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, the prosecutor in the case. Roman called for all charges to be dropped, as noted by The Washington Post.

Several days later, Willis made a speech in which she suggested she and Wade were being attacked because they are black.

The filing touched on Roman’s filing and Willis’s speech.

“President Trump moves the Court to adopt and supplement the above-titled motion filed by co-defendant Roman on January 8, 2024, which alleged, among other misconduct, that an improper intimate personal relationship existed between Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney (DA) Willis, that Wade has been paid over $650,000 by the DA, and that taxpayer monies were used by Wade to take the DA on lavish vacations,” the filing said.

The filing said Willis used her speech “to make racially charged, extrajudicial statements designed to defend against, as well as divert and deflect attention from, the alleged misconduct outlined in Roman’s motion.”

The filing said that during Willis’s speech in a religious setting she “repeatedly and inappropriately injected race into the case and stoked racial animus by, among other statements, asking God why the defendants were questioning her conduct in hiring a Black man but not his White counterparts, and why the judgment of a Black female Democrat wasn’t as good as White male Republicans.”

They said the prosecutor injected “racial animus” into the debate around her alleged inappropriate relationship with Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor she hired for the Trump case.

Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, pointed to a 35-minute speech that Ms. Willis gave to the Big Bethel AME Church in Atlanta during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend. In her remarks, Ms. Willis said no one objected to the White special prosecutors she hired and said Mr. Wade, a Black man, had been hired by Republicans in other counties.

“Without mentioning the alleged affair or even trying to put her alleged malfeasance in context, she repeatedly and inappropriately injected race into the case and stoked racial animus by, among other statements, asking God why the defendants were questioning her conduct in hiring a Black man but not his White counterparts, and why the judgment of a Black female Democrat wasn’t as good as White male Republicans,” Mr. Sadow wrote in a motion to supplement a motion by co-defendant Michael Roman.

Mr. Roman dropped a bombshell this month by alleging Ms. Willis had an affair with Mr. Wade, a lawyer who received taxpayer money for his work in the Georgia case that resulted in racketeering charges against Mr. Trump and 18 co-defendants.

The motion said Ms. Willis and Mr. Roman took lavish trips and supported his claims with airline ticket records. He says the situation presented a legal problem for Ms. Willis because she stood to personally benefit from the prosecution of Mr. Trump and his allies.

Ms. Willis hasn’t publicly confirmed or denied whether she had a relationship with Mr. Wade, who is married but steeped in divorce proceedings. She has until Feb. 2 to formally respond to Mr. Roman’s allegations, ahead of a Feb. 15 court hearing on the matter.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
