Georgia Senate approves Fani Willis misconduct subpoena

An investigation into the allegations of corruption against Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, is going to be conducted by an investigative committee that will be authorized by the Georgia Senate this week, according to information that Breitbart News obtained exclusively on Monday.

The establishment of the possible committee is crucial due to the fact that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, declined to initiate a criminal investigation into Willis last week, citing the requirement for an oversight committee that is not presently running to initiate the investigation.

According to a resolution that was presented by Georgia state Senator Greg Dolezal (R-Forsyth), the new Georgia Senate committee could exercise its authority to issue subpoenas as soon as later this week in order to "secure the attendance of witnesses or the production of documents and materials" in connection with Willis.

The committee, which would be the only one of its kind in the state of Georgia, would consist of nine senators, with only three of them being Democrats for the Democratic Party.

“The Georgia legislature has a responsibility to hold public officials accountable,” Georgia Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones exclusively told Breitbart News. “Recent reports have been deeply troubling and I appreciate Sen. Dolezal’s leadership on this issue.”

The establishment of the committee seems imminent, as per the timeline. On Monday, Dolezal will present the resolution.

Tuesday, it is probable that it will be referred to the Senate Rules Committee. As soon as the Rules Committee gives its consent, a vote on the Senate floor will be scheduled for this week.

The Committee on Assignments will appoint the members, pending Senate approval. Willis faces allegations of impropriety and collusion in the course of her legal battle against former President Donald Trump.

In January, four explosive allegations were made in a court filing by Mike Roman, a political operative and co-defendant of Trump in the Georgia election case, regarding the conduct of Willis while prosecuting Trump.

Such a “relationship, if proven to exist, would constitute a clear conflict of interest and a fraud upon the taxpayers of Fulton County and the State of Georgia,” Dolezal’s resolution states.

He went on to establish the grounds for “Willis’s recusal from further involvement in the prosecution, potentially delaying it indefinitely and requiring the appointment of a special prosecutor at public expense.”

“[T]he Georgia Senate has the inherent power and authority to conduct investigations into … the expenditure of public funds [and] the conduct of public officers who discharge powers and duties under state law,” the resolution continues.

“[S]uch inherent powers include the authority to create special committees for the purpose of conducting investigations and to endow such committees with all the inherent powers of investigation possessed by the Georgia Senate, including the power to compel the appearance and testimony of witnesses and the production of records and the power to place witnesses under oath or affirmation,” it adds.
