Dem lawyer rips Fani Willis

Democratic attorney Julian Epstein is pushing to Georgia's District Attorney Fani Willis off of former President Donald Trump's election interference case. He said the judge was "right" to allow the Trump team to appeal the case.

The Democrat explained, "Well, I think if Fani Willis had any real interest in this case, she would resign or recuse herself from it. This is an utter embarrassment. I mean, this looks to me, in my opinion, this was a kickback scheme, where she hired a boyfriend who was then providing her all kinds of benefits."

Hard to believe

Democrat Julian Epstein continued, "I think the whole claim about, the reimbursements, is hard to believe. I think the claims about when the relationship began. I think those are very hard to believe. I think the judge was right to allow the Trump team to appeal. And, I think there's not just that question about whether she should be kicked off the case."
