( – On Wednesday, defense attorney Caroline Polisi argued that Fulton County, Georgia prosecution against former President Donald Trump could end up dying if District Attorney Fani Willis was taken off the case. 

During an interview with MSNBC anchor Ana Cabrera, Polisi stated that the case would continue to be ongoing even if Judge Scott McAffee ended up disqualifying Willis over the recent case that has emerged against her relating to her romantic relationship with prosecutor Nathan Wade. Willis had hired Wade to be one of the prosecutors in the racketeering case. 

Still, Polisi argued that if Willis was taken out of the picture then all of the case’s momentum was going to be lost. She also argued that the recent decision made by McAfee to dismiss six of the counts in the case was another setback. 

McAfee argued on Wednesday in an order that the state had not provided sufficient details for six of the counts in the case that related to “solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer.” Three of those counts were specifically brought forward against Trump. 

Cabrera proceeded to ask Polisi if the news could potentially affect the decision made by the judge to block Willis from this case for the relationship that she and Wade had gotten into. She asked whether this was something that the judge would consider and if the dismissal of the six counts was only the first step to having Willis removed. 

However, Polisi quickly explained that the dismissal of the counts and the case relating to Willis’ misconduct and potential removal were completely separate.
