In the aftermath of Fulton County’s indictment of former President Donald Trump for legally contesting the 2020 presidential election results, Republicans have mobilized to investigate partisan District Attorney Fani Willis.
It has launched a number of investigations into Willis, who has ties to the Democratic Party and has even fundraised for political opponents to Trump allies.
Georgia state Senate Majority Leader Steve Gooch and fellow Republicans are primed to hold hearings aiming to determine whether Willis is operating impartially or if her office is being exploited for political gain.
Gooch, a Republican, revealed that the state legislature is preparing to conduct hearings with the intention of assessing whether Willis is using her office for political purposes. They aim to investigate if her office is being employed to target Republican candidates running for office. This comes after a two-year investigation into Trump and other Republican figures.
“We believe she is definitely tainted,” Gooch said. “She’s politicizing this, and we want to make sure these people get a fair trial and a fair shake.”
Gooch told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Georgia Republicans are implementing a supervisory body to probe district attorneys and solicitors-general. This action is in response to Senate Bill 92,
