It shows they don't respect the court rules and can be removed from the case

That's the best I can come up with

will have to do with his guilt or innocence.

If he was an average American, *rump would already be in prison.

5. There are a couple of issues.
Tue Feb 27, 2024, 03:36 PM
Feb 27

The issues are basically whether or not she had a relationship with Wade, and if so, whether or not she benefited financially from that relationship. The underlying assertion is that there's a conflict of interest.

Timing matters because they testified under oath about when the relationship started.

This article from the much-derided NYT covers it pretty well.

Stop the presses! She must be dismissed... ?

Huh?

All of that buildup and the guy can't say when they started dating?

He isn't saying it was before the case started. He can't recall.

Horrors!!!!!

Under oath testimony of when the relationship started?! What utter garbage. How can anyone prove when a relationship between two people started? Oh, receipts! They had dinner together! Perjury! Crime! Exoneration of the oozing syphilitic sore!

This is disgusting. Sexist, racist garbage. I am beyond fed up with these fucking MAGAts.

State crimes are ineligible for a presidential pardon and the Georgia crimes he’s charged with have the highest state penalties.

This is why he’s throwing anything and everything at the wall to see what sticks.

Why is the court entertaining this? They do know they’re repping a rapist, right? Trump is a rapist.

Would a man who hired woman be accused of hiring her for financial gain? Were all the women in the TRump administration hired so he could sponge off them financially? This whole thing hurts my head.

Lying under oath, or looking like she lied under oath is enough.

That's the way Fulton Co. works.

The truth hurts.

…she will be taken off the case against Trump, her office will be closed, and Georgia will have to try to find someone else to run her office, and we’ll all have to pray that person is interested in a RICO case against Trump at all.

Fani Willis is, by all accounts, uniquely qualified to prosecute RICO cases.

Anyway, smearing her, destroying her reputation, and wasting her time and ours is simply a way to make the case against Trump go away.
