Kemp Keeps Willis In His Political Theater

Brian Kemp has rejected requests to remove Fulton County DA Fani Willis. Willis is the district attorney overseeing the indictment of former President Trump.

Colton Moore, a Republican representative from Georgia, requested an immediate emergency session for Willis’ removal from the indictment case.

Gov. Brian Kemp stood by Willis and rejected any process that would remove Willis from the indictment case against Trump and his associates. Kemp cited the request for removal as nothing more than “political theater.”

Kemp also stated, “The bottom line is that in the state of Georgia, as long as I’m governor, we’re going to follow the law and the Constitution.”

Interestingly, Kemp uses the label, political theater, pertaining to Willis’ possible removal, when the entire indictment is full of legal issues some say are unconstitutional.

The entire indictment falls under a phrase, election interference, which Americans find commonplace in today’s media. The problem is that the only interference Trump and his associates have shown is to request something all Americans have the right to request, a ballot recount.

Willis has gone further into the indictment using the RICO Act, an act used primarily against criminal organizations. The bottom line of Willis’ entire argument is that if an American asks for a recount, something within their rights to do, they are now a racketeer and causing election interference.

By Kemp maintaining Willis’ seat, Kemp is also siding with Willis’ viewpoint that Trump and his associates committed a crime. He is backing a district attorney who has shown ongoing bias in the case and has gone so far as to point fingers and blame at anyone asking for a recount.

This choice by Kemp shows not only an obvious bias to Trump and his associates but Kemp’s willingness to put anyone who agrees with Trump on a slippery slope for RICO and election interference charges.

As a new presidential election looms over the country, it seems to be political theater to create a backstory that could lead to no one being able to challenge any count that comes from a normal ballot count.

If theater is a production, then setting up the probability of being made a criminal by asking for a recount seems to be a very political production indeed.
