Trump lawyer says Georgia prosecutor should be disqualified

WASHINGTON, 2 March: Former US President Donald Trump has asked a Georgia judge to disqualify the prosecutor who accused Trump of meddling in the election because he may have lied about a relationship with a deputy prosecutor.

Fulton County District Attorney Fannie Wells claimed under oath that her relationship with Nathan Wade was not credible until she hired him, lawyer Steve Sadow said.

Georgia law is clear and sufficient for disqualification when injustice is apparent; Steve Sadow told Judge Scott McAfee.

Prosecutor Adam Abate said that in three hearings, there was no evidence that Willis’ relationship had caused any harm to the plaintiffs.

Judge McAfee said he would rule in two weeks but did not say what the decision would be.

Republican candidate Trump is accused of illegally pressuring Georgia officials to change the election results in his favor.

Trump has already said he and 14 other defendants are not guilty.

A ruling favoring Trump and his associates would further complicate an already fragile case. Willis’ disqualification will not end the case because another district attorney will replace her.
