The judge who is holding the hearing on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her lover suggested in the hearing today that the facts of the case could result in disqualification. Therefore an evidentiary hearing must occur to establish the facts.
Here’s what the judge said:
“Specifically looking at defendant Roman’s motion, it alleges a personal relationship that resulted in a financial benefit to the District Attorney and that is no longer a matter of complete speculation. The state has admitted a relationship existed and so what remains to be proven is the existence and extent of any financial benefit. Again, if there even was one.
So, because I think it’s possible that the facts alleged by the defendant could result in disqualification, I think an evidentiary hearing must occur to establish the record on those core allegations.”
