State Senator Colton Moore had to walk back his claim of having majority support in both legislative chambers for the impeachment of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Governor Brian Kemp weighed in on the matter during a press conference. “We have a law in the state of Georgia that clearly outlines the legal steps that can be taken if constituents believe their local prosecutors are violating their oath by engaging in unethical or illegal behavior,” Kemp stated. He also noted that similar attempts by other Republicans to hinder the ongoing case against former President Trump in Georgia have met with little success.

In a related move, DA Fani Willis is seeking to speed up the legal proceedings against Trump and 18 other individuals. She submitted a motion that states, “The State of Georgia further respectfully requests that the Court set a deadline for any Defendant wishing to file a motion to sever, allow the parties, including the State of Georgia, sufficient time to brief the severance issue, and hold a hearing on any filed motion to sever so that the Court may consider the factors set forth in Cain and its progeny, as required by Georgia law.”
