Moore said, “We must strip all funding and, if appropriate, impeach Fani Willis.”
On Thursday, Georgia state Senator Colton Moore sent a letter to Governor Brian Kemp marking the first step towards impeaching Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who indicted 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump on 13 counts on Monday.
Moore announced in the letter, obtained by Breitbart, an emergency session to investigate the actions undertaken by Willis.
“We, the undersigned, being the duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and comprising 3/5 of each respective house, pursuant to Article IV, Section II, Paragraph VII(b), hereby certify to you, in writing, with a copy to the Secretary of State, that in our opinion an emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section, for all purposes, to include, without limitation, the review and response to the actions of Fani Willis,” the letter stated.
In the state of Georgia, an emergency legislative special session can come about by either the governor calling for such a session or if 3/5 of both legislative chambers sign onto a letter demanding it.
In a statement, Moore said, “We must strip all funding and, if appropriate, impeach Fani Willis.”
“As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis,” he said. “America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors weaponize their elected offices to politically target their opponents.”
Trump, alongside 18 others, was indicted on Monday evening on charges of violation of the Georgia RICO Act, solicitation of violation of oath by public officer, false statements and writings, impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, criminal attempt to commit filing false documents, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, criminal attempt to commit influencing witnesses, influencing witnesses, conspiracy to commit election fraud, conspiracy to commit computer theft, conspiracy to commit computer trespass, conspiracy to commit computer invasion of privacy, conspiracy to defraud the state, and perjury.
The indictment reads “At all times relevant to this Count of the Indictment, the Defendants, as well as others not named as defendants, unlawfully conspired and endeavored to conduct and participate in a criminal enterprise in Fulton County, Georgia, and elsewhere.”
This is the fourth indictment handed down to the GOP frontrunner this year. Willis has requested that the trial start on March 4, 2024, which is just one week before the Georgia primary election.
