Investigations into Trump’s election probe

Along with her office staff, she interviewed many people, like Georgia’s Governor Kemp and Mr. Raffensperger, plus Trump’s ex-lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Trump didn’t like it and complained on Truth social media. He called Ms. Willis a “Radical Left Democrat ‘Prosecutor'” investigating a ‘PERFECT’ phone call.

Ms. Willis hit back, saying, “No one is above the law.” She explained, “I can’t ignore a possible crime affecting the important right to vote for people in our community and the country.” Accusations now surround Ms. Willis, which could harm her case and reputation. In the Trump trial, co-defendant Michael Roman wants her out, claiming she had an “improper” relationship with Mr. Wade.
