During a Jan. 12 motions hearing, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee indicated a hearing on what one attorney termed “scandalous” allegations surrounding the district attorney’s relationship with a prosecutor would be held mid-February.

Judge McAfee is holding motions hearings every Friday for the next few weeks in the case Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is prosecuting against former President Donald Trump for his actions to challenge the 2020 election results. President Trump and 14 codefendants have been charged with violating the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and have been accused of operating a criminal conspiracy in their election challenge efforts.

Earlier this week, defendant Michael Roman, a former GOP strategist, made huge accusations of the “improper” use of funds in the district attorney’s office.

(…) Prosecutors have not yet filed a response to the motion but said they would do so. Judge McAfee said a hearing on this motion would not be scheduled until after the court has received the response, and the earliest would likely be mid-February.

During the court hearing, Steve Sadow, attorney for President Trump, asked for the option to adopt the motion at a later date. He said he presently had no foundation for the “scandalous and salacious” allegations, the first of which was made public through the court filing, and would certainly wait to see the district attorney’s response filing before making a decision to adopt Mr. Roman’s filing. The judge had no issue with him doing so. (Read more: The Epoch Times, 1/12/2024)  (Archive)
