Georgia state senator calls for emergency session to review Willis' Trump indictment
"America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors politically TARGET political opponents," Moore wrote on social media.
A Georgia state senator on Thursday called for an emergency legislative session to review the recent actions of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis – three days after a grand jury in her probe on the state's 2020 elections handed down a 41-count indictment on then-President Trump and 18 co-conspirators that alleges a criminal plot to overturn the election results.
"I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis," state GOP Sen. Colton Moore posted on X, the platform previously named Twitter. "America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors politically TARGET political opponents."
Trump and the others were indicted Monday night for engaging in a broad conspiracy, which include allegations of racketeering to overturn the results.
Moore also said in his post that Willis should, if necessary, be impeached. He also put out a petition for people to sign.
"The politically-motivated weaponization of our justice system at the expense of taxpayers will not be tolerated," the petition reads. "I am demanding that we defund her office until we find out what the hell is going on. We cannot stand idly by as corrupt prosecutors choose to target their political opposition."
The charges that Trump and the others – including former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and attorney Rudy Giuliani – are facing also include making false statements to officials and false statements in relation to voting machines and "false electors."
