Fulton County, Ga., DA Fani Willis faces 22 articles of impeachment for “malfeasance, oppression and tyrannical partiality”
The criminal escapades of Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Fani Willis continue to come to light after a Georgia lawmaker filed a resolution to impeach her for various acts of “malfeasance, tyrannical partiality and oppression.”
As we reported, Willis was exposed recently for hiring Nathan Wade, her secret lover, to be the special prosecutor in Georgia’s racketeering case against Donald Trump. Willis paid Wade $700,000 for the role, and he spent thousands of that taking Willis on lavish vacations around the world.
Rep. Charlice Byrd (R-Ga.) pointed out in a January 26 statement that Willis has committed all sorts of other crimes as well. Accompanying the introduction of House Resolution 872, Byrd introduced her impeachment resolution to deal with the matter.
“Fani Willis has a laundry list of potential conflicts that make her unworthy and unfit to be the district attorney in Fulton County,” Byrd said about the proposal.

Willis infamously filed a case against Trump alleging 2020 election interference. Her case included more than a dozen other co-defendants, having been filed under Georgia laws that were originally intended to fight organized crime.
One of Willis’ claims is that Trump asked Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, to “find” more votes for him. It turns out that Trump was merely commenting on all the votes that had been “found” for Biden in the middle of the note, using the same word but in a different context.
Byrd’s resolution is a full 10 pages in length, laying out an extensive case against her for violating her oath of office, which reads:
“Any public officer who willfully and intentionally violates the terms of his oath as prescribed by law shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than five years.”
Byrd’s statement calling for impeachment came on the same day that the Georgia State Senate voted to establish a new committee to investigate the many claims of criminal acts by Willis, which range from accusations of prosecutorial misconduct to questions about how she chose to use public funds.
Byrd says that Willis made a “wrongful” indictment of Trump and his 18 co-defendants, which is now down to 14 co-defendants since four have already pleaded guilty.
The resolution calls Willis’ indictment “the severest case of gross abuse of discretion” while acting as DA for Fulton County. Willis also “grossly violated” her oath of office, which she swore to handle impartially, the resolution further states.
Concerning Willis’ relationship with lead prosecutor Nathan Wade, Byrd’s resolution calls it “inappropriate” and “unethical.”
In total, Byrd’s resolution contains 22 articles of impeachment, each of which is an alleged violation of Georgia Code 16-10-1. Nineteen of the impeachment charges pertain to Willis’ prosecution of Trump and the 18 other co-defendants, alleging that she “grossly violate[d]” her oath of office in order to illicitly advance her political career.
The remaining three articles of impeachment deal with Willis’ alleged perpetration of “prosecutorial vindictiveness” when she withheld material evidence from a jury and false claimed that she was “not the holder of any unaccounted-for public money due the state.”
Willis also lied about swearing in her oath of office to take “only my lawful compensation,” this before she allegedly proceeded to profit from her relationship with Wade.
All of this is grounds, according to Trump and others, to dismiss Willis’ racketeering case against the former president, who says the case is “totally compromised” because of Willis’ alleged crimes.
“Despite having wide-ranging powers to carry out the investigation, the panel will not have the ability to impose sanctions on Ms. Willis,” reported Zero Hedge about the new committee that was established to investigate Willis.
