Georgia Judge Dismisses 6 Charges in Trump Election Case

The judge overseeing the Georgia election fraud case against Donald Trump — which has been under scrutiny over District Attorney Fani Willis’ one-time romance with the lead prosecutor — has tossed out six criminal charges in the indictment.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee dismissed six counts against six defendants — including three against the former president — on the grounds the charges weren’t specific enough.

Most of the case is unaffected by the decision and is still slated to proceed to trial against the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and the 14 other remaining co-defendants accused of trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election result in the Peach State.

McAfee left the door open for prosecutors to refile the dismissed charges alleging the defendants solicited Georgia officials to violate their oaths of office — including Trump’s Jan. 2, 2021, call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which he said, “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have.”

Trump has pleaded not guilty in the case.

Trump lawyer Steve Sadow said the judge “made the correct legal decision.”

“The counts dismissed against President Trump are 5, 28 and 38, which falsely claimed that he solicited GA public officials to violate their oath of office,” Sadow said in a statement to The Post. “The ruling is a correct application of the law, as the prosecution failed to make specific allegations of any alleged wrongdoing on those counts.”

“The entire prosecution of President Trump is political, constitutes election interference, and should be dismissed,” the lawyer added.

This is the first time any charges have been tossed out against the embattled real estate tycoon in any of the four criminal cases he faces — including the New York “hush money” case slated for trial on March 25.

The Georgia case has already been under attack by Trump and other defendants, who are trying to get Willis booted from the case for alleged misconduct connected to her affair with special prosecutor Nathan Wade.

McAfee could rule on whether to disqualify Willis as soon as the end of the week.

    What was the point if he is just going to let them refile the dismissed charges?

  • Laurie says:

    Every one of them should be thrown out. All 18 with a bogus tick charge. 1 against Rudy gulliani , who made Rico law , took down John good 5 other famlies.
    All should be dismissed with prejudice. Which means you can’t recharge. Get a grip judge.

    Jordan Fuchs, who works w/Brad Raffensberger recorded the call between Trump & Raffensperger. The trick is she was NOT known to be on the call, as she was on mute.

    HOWEVER, she was visiting her Grandparent at the time that lives in FLORIDA and that is #1 PARAMOUNT and CRITICAL. It is the Law of Evidence 101 and nothing should have come from it – EVER.

    The State of Florida has a two-party consent LAW, which means that since Jordan Fuchs & Donald Trump were in Florida – she illegally recorded the phone call with Raffensberger in GA and she failed to get the TWO Parties in Florida consent.

    Therefore, the ENTIRE Phone Call can NOT be used – period! It is the Poisonous Tree and anything that stemmed from the poisonous tree aka “Fruit” is now poison and CANNOT be used. The Judge didn’t even drop those specific charges but anyone that lives in Florida knows anytime someone important calls, Medicare, your Health Insurance, a call to your Auto Insurance, etc IF you are on the phone with them – they ALWAYS state immediately up front that this call will be recorded and we need you to state your name and make a statement that you acknowledge it is being recorded and you AGREE to such – – Jordan Fuchs didn’t do any of that as she was being a sneaky snake listening & recording it all while she was on “mute”

    It ALL will crumble. How did a DA “Fani Willis” even pass the Bar Exam – purely due to her skin color – because Law School 101 Student or any Clerk in Court knows to lay out the Top 3 pieces of evidence and to review them over & over again to ensure they are SOLID, there is nothing that can fracture/defeat that evidence and she failed to do that – – So everything she built upon that “Phone Call w/Raffensperger” is Fruit from the Poisonous Tree and now DEAD in the Water.

    In the meantime, this Court Case has costs GA taxpayers and US taxpayers & Donald Trump and 12 others an absolute fortune. Somehow there needs to be a PENALTY against those that brought this case and every nickel the Defendants have paid out to Save Their Lives against these charges should be PAID by those who were prosecuting them –

    IF GA has enough $ that they pay their District Attorney 225K but can afford 5+ contracts with Law Firms (mainly Nathan Wade’s & Associates) – Nathan earned close to 700K in one year; what have the other partners earned with their Contracts with Fani Willis? IF they have so much money, 660K could have hired 3 Full-Time Attorneys to work doing criminal work for GA (instant of this contract work) – – Then the State of GA, Fulton County should be forced to reimburse all of the defendants legal expenses and any other costs the innocent parties incurred because this case should NEVER have been brought to light – – it was based solely on an illegal phone call that was taped

    Disbar Fani Willis and sue her for Defamation of Character for 20Million. Since all of these defamation case judgments are outlandish like E. Jean Carroll, let’s make that 200 million at least for Donald Trump!

      This means according to Florida Statutes § 934.03, all participants in a phone conversation must agree to the call being recorded. It’s illegal to record a phone call in Florida without everyone’s consent. There can be serious repercussions for violating this law, including fines and jail time.

    THIS JUDGE IS LOCAL. HE OONTRIBUTED TO FANI’S CAMPAIGN. SAME COUNTY, SAME SOCIALS.
    I FEAR HE IS WEAK. THIS DROPPING OF SOME TRUMP CHARGES MAY BE ALL WE SEE.

    FANI WILLIS AND NATHAN WADE SHOULD BOTH BE REMOVED FROM THE CASE. IN A NORMAL COURT WITH FAIR RULINGS, FANI WILLIS AND NATHAN WADE , ET AL, WOULD BE CHARGED WITH PERJURY AND A LOAD OF OTHER CHARGES. EVEN UP FOR DISBARMENT. THE BEHAVIOR AND VIOLATIONS OF THESE OFFICIALS OF THE COURT ARE DISGRACEFUL, AS WELL AS LAWLESS!

  • jay says:

    “Make sure your counts are correct” is not illegal, especially coming from the president. Even if evil Joe Biden in the upcoming election reminded all the governors in the country to “Make sure this shit is fair and square and nothing is miscounted” I would support the sitting president.
