Suspecting political bias and abuse of prosecutorial powers, the House Judiciary Committee announced it is investigating the actions of District Attorney Fani Willis.
The investigation will focus on Willis’ decision to prosecute former President Donald Trump and 18 of his advisers and staff.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan said: “You can’t prosecute a former President of the United States without the public having 100% confidence in your motivations. The role of the House Judiciary Committee is to ensure that every American, no matter their political beliefs, feels the system is fair.”
Jordan added: “Indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding [her] actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated.”
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich recently claimed a source told him that Willis was “in contact with people from Washington. The source allegedly claimed that ‘somebody from Washington’ told Willis to hurry up the indictment of Trump to cover for Hunter Biden.”
Conservatives hail the move — calling it a necessary action to stem the grievous oversteps and weaponization of the Department of Justice.
A source shared with Fox News: “Willis could have an agenda, and if that’s proven true, it’s a problem.”
In announcing her probe, Willis declared: “This investigation includes, but is not limited to, potential violations of Georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local government bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”
Rep. Devin Nunes commented on Willis’ statement, raising an eyebrow at the breadth of her claims.
Rep. Doug Collins shared: “Looking into potential misconduct is one thing, but if this is a political game, it needs to be called out.”
Using language that points to historical moments of mass hysteria and bias, David Schoen, a defense attorney for Trump, said: “What the Fulton County DA’s office did is worse than the Salem witch trials.”
SLATE News disagreed, writing that “The evidence in the classified documents case is so strong, it could possibly even weaken the other cases against Trump.”
Amid the whirlwind of statements and counters, one thing remains clear: The saga of the 45th president’s legal troubles is far from over. Willis now finds herself in check, but time will tell how this high-stakes game unfolds.
