A few days ago, we asked the musical question, “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Fani Willis?”

Willis is the Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney who, along with her “Trump” special grand jury, has gone completely out of control in citing and indicting Trump and his supporters.  Just one example:  an alternate slate of Georgia electors, the creation of which is absolutely constitutional and has legal precedent, now faces the possibility of decades in prison for simply doing their duty in case a razor-thin vote count were flipped.  The TDS-infected grand jury presented Willis with a list of 39 individuals whom they recommended for indictment, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham.  Willis at least knew well enough to pare that list down to half.

Here’s what Sen. Graham had to say about it on Tuesday’s HANNITY (after brief lead-in from Sean Hannity).  Very powerful.  The system is “truly off the rails,” he said, if officials aren’t even allowed to do their jobs without being dragged before a grand jury.  The left wants to use the law to intimidate anyone from asking questions.

This is an abuse of the legal system that, short of the treatment of January 6 political prisoners, is about the most serious we’ve ever seen.

So, what needs to happen now?  Author and persuasion expert Scott Adams wondered aloud if it’s time to arrest her.  Others say impeachment by the Georgia legislature is the way to go.  Still others are looking at new, existing state legislation, described by A. R. Hoffman in the NEW YORK SUN as “an avant garde law that grants power to remove prosecutors to lawmakers rather than to voters or governors.”

The NY SUN is subscription-only, but we’ll summarize the piece for you…

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has said he does not want an impeachment for Willis.  He made it clear at a press conference that he considered her impeachment to be “political theater that only inflames the emotions of the moment.”  To that we would say that if Gov.  Kemp doesn’t want to see emotions inflamed, he’d better do whatever is necessary to stop Willis’s own political theatre.  That’s already inflaming plenty of emotions.

Kemp added that having a special session for the purpose of removing Willis “would ignore existing Georgia law and directly interfere with the proceedings fo a separate but equal branch of government.”

He said the bottom line in his state is that, “as long as I’m governor, we’re going to follow the law and the Constitution, regardless of who it helps or harms politically.”  Never mind that impeachment is in the Constitution and that any prosecutor on the left or right who went this far off the rails should be subject to it.

But in May, at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office, Gov. Kemp did sign into law S.B. 92, which creates an eight-member “Prosecuting Attorneys Oversight Commission” with the power to “discipline, remove, and cause involuntary retirement of appointed or elected district attorneys or solicitors-general.”  Grounds for removal include “willful misconduct in office” and “willful and persistent failure to carry out statutory duties.”

They also include “conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice which brings the office into disrepute.”  Ding-ding-ding!  That’s the one.

This is for egregious conduct.  Anyone disqualified under this law is forbidden from being appointed or elected to a similar office in Georgia for 10 years.

So, who gets to make this call?  The committee members are all appointed by the governor, the lieutenant governor, and the speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives, all of whom are currently Republicans.  But the three members they’ve appointed so far are all district attorneys, so they might be likely to side with the independence of another DA.

In fact, the district attorney of De Kalb County, Sherry Boston, took it as a slap in the face.  She called it “an assault on prosecutorial discretion and independence,” and a “direct attack on the nature of our democratic process.”  And four DAs have filed a lawsuit --- in Fulton County --- alleging that S. B. 92 is unconstitutional.  They say it violates the separation of powers and also the First Amendment, by “punishing prosecutors for articulating their prosecutorial philosophies.”  They also say it grants “vague and broad authority” to the commission.  Plus, it violates due process, they say, by “failing to give fair notice of conduct that is forbidden or required” before the state can deprive someone of elective office.

What constitute “fair notice”?  It would be nice to think any prosecutor would be able to recognize a blatant abuse of power on her part and not have to be given a tutorial on the definition of “crime,” but this one apparently needs to be told.  And the commission is only now being chosen.

According to the NY SUN, their case is being handled by Public Legal, a nonprofit whose legal director, Joshua Rosenthal, calls the law “an anti-democratic and unconstitutional intrusion into core powers of local prosecutors” that “must be halted.”  

So, to call the new law controversial would not be overstating it.  But Fani Willis is one particular local prosecutor who has clearly gone on a huge “core power” trip that really must be halted.  She’s charging a long list of people criminally with actions that are NOT CRIMES.  Ironically, it seems this law was passed not in response to an overzealous DA like Willis but to deal with just the opposite situation --- prosecutors failing to enforce laws.


RELATED:  In case you don’t quite get the level of Trump-hate that is powering prosecutions like Fani Willis’s in Georgia, check out Sirius XM radio host and MSNBC columnist Dean Obeidallah, who insisted on Friday that Trump “must die in prison” to set an example for the public and protect democracy.  Because Trump, as we all know courtesy of MSNBC, attempted a coup.

Likewise, Julie Kelly’s new column deals with what she calls the “bloodlust of the left” as still more J6 arrests are made.  She focuses on “Jord” Meacham, the young man who recently killed himself, the fourth known suicide of a January 6 defendant.  He took his life just hours after his arraignment was scheduled.  Some on social media coldly mocked him; others blamed Trump for his death.

Now, this is going to make you mad, but it’s important to know the state of derangement with which we’re dealing.  As Kelly writes, “...the sad, alarming truth is that millions of our countrymen will shed no tears for Jord and his family.  They won’t consider the ramifications of branding Americans with whom they disagree politically as ‘terrorists.’  They don’t care that this soulless ruling class is rapidly tearing away the boundaries of the law, the Constitution, fairness and human decency.”

And our ‘Justice’ Department marches on --- “undeterred, unfinished, and unrepentant.”
