Georgia election interference case against Trump dropped by appeals court – National

An appeals court has put a hold on Georgia’s election interference case against former President Donald Trump and others while it reviews the lower court’s ruling allowing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to stay on the case.

The order from the Georgia Court of Appeals prevents Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee from filing pretrial motions while the appeal is pending. The delay makes it even less likely that the case will be tried before the November general election, with Trump expected to be the Republican nominee for president.

A Fulton County grand jury indicted Trump and 18 others in August, accusing them of attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. Four defendants have pleaded guilty, while Trump and the others have pleaded not guilty.

Trump and eight other defendants sought to remove Willis from the case, citing a conflict of interest due to her romantic relationship with special counsel Nathan Wade.
