On Monday, the Georgia prosecutor leading the investigation into potential legal violations by Donald Trump and his associates in their efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the state responded to the former president’s attempt to remove her from the case and exclude specific evidence.
Trump’s legal team in Georgia filed a motion in March seeking the dismissal of a special grand jury report and requesting that any evidence or testimony resulting from the panel’s investigation be inadmissible.
They also sought to prevent Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her office from further investigating or prosecuting the case, the Associated Press reported.
In response, District Attorney Willis firmly opposed these requests, asserting her right to continue the investigation and utilize the evidence obtained through the grand jury’s work.
She argued against any attempts to impede the progress of the case, maintaining her commitment to upholding the law and pursuing justice.
The legal battle surrounding the investigation into Trump and his allies’ actions in Georgia highlights the ongoing dispute over the legitimacy of their efforts to challenge the election results and the role of the justice system in holding accountable those potentially involved in any unlawful activities.
