On Thursday, state Senator Colton Moore of Georgia took a significant step towards potentially impeaching Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
A letter was sent to Governor Brian Kemp by Moore which, as obtained by Breitbart News, outlined an emergency session to examine the actions taken by Willis in light of the indictments placed on former President Donald Trump this week.
Moore’s examination could have the potential to reduce the funding for Willis’ inquiry into Trump and possibly even bring about the removal of the district attorney.
“We must strip all funding and, if appropriate, impeach Fani Willis,” Moore said in a statement. “As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis. America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors weaponize their elected offices to politically target their opponents.”
Breitbart noted in its report: “An emergency legislative special session can come about two ways in Georgia: First, the governor can call an emergency session. Second, an emergency session can be called if 3/5 of both the legislative chambers sign onto a letter to demand a review of Willis’s actions.”
The latter strategy is demonstrated in Moore’s letter to Kemp:
Dear Governor Kemp:
We, the undersigned, being duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and comprising 3/5 of each respective house, pursuant to Article IV, Section II, Paragraph VII(b), hereby certify to you, in writing, with a copy to the Secretary of State, that in our opinion an emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section, for all purposes, to include, without limitation, the review and response to the actions of Fani Willis.
Colton Moore, State Senator, Georgia Senate District 53
Cliff Maloney, who is responsible for America First Georgia campaigns, informed Breitbart that the only initiative being taken in Georgia to prevent the prosecution of Trump is Moore’s attempt at retaliation against Willis.
“Finally, a leader who is stepping up and fighting back against the epidemic of corrupt District Attorneys that are drunk on power,” he said.
“Colton Moore is an absolute patriot,” he added. “He must win this battle and I encourage every liberty-loving American to support him.”
On Wednesday, a CNN legal analyst suggested that it is unlikely Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis will be able to bring former President Donald Trump to trial within six months.
This comes after DA Willis announced indictments for alleged 2020 election interference on Tuesday and expressed her desire for the trial to begin in March – during the primary season.
Elie Honig stated that this timeline was not realistic.
