Trump election interference case paused in Georgia during challenge to prosecutor

A Georgia appeals court has paused the criminal case against Donald Trump and 14 co-defendants related to attempts to overturn the 2020 election results while it considers Trump’s bid to disqualify lead prosecutor Fani Willis. This delay indicates the case will not proceed to trial before the November 5 election. Trump is appealing a judge’s decision allowing Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, to remain on the case. Trump and eight co-defendants argue that Willis should be disqualified due to a conflict of interest involving a romantic relationship with a former top deputy. The case, one of four Trump faces as he campaigns for the presidency, joins other legal battles delaying trial dates. Trump’s legal team and prosecutors are engaged in multiple appeals, with the court scheduling oral arguments for October. Trump and his co-defendants have pleaded not guilty to racketeering and other charges.
