Trump's attorneys will use 'other channels' to have DA Fani Willis disqualified

Former President Donald Trump's legal team has worked overtime to protect their client from the constant barrage of state and federal indictments.

According to the Washington Examiner, with regard to the potential upcoming indictment against Trump out of Georgia, the former president's legal team appears to be set on taking a different approach to fighting it off at the pass.

Trump's lawyers had filed suit in an attempt to force a Georgia state judge to decide whether or not to throw out evidence presented to a grand jury by District Attorney Fani Willis, along with her disqualification, that could result in a fourth indictment.

Last week, Trump's legal team announced that it has withdrawn from the lawsuit and will instead seek "other channels" for judicial review.

Trump's attorneys had made a similar attempt in the state's Supreme Court, which the court ultimately tossed.

The Examiner noted:

Attorneys for the former president wrote in a motion Thursday that there are now "other channels to seek judicial review” of the special grand jury and the ability of Willis “to continue forward” with the investigation. Their dismissal filing indicated a plan to appeal the decision by the presiding Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney.

Trump's legal team, in its motion to dismiss, made it clear that it doesn't agree with the judge's decision which resulted in a failed attempt to have Willis disqualified and the investigation thrown out.

"Although the Petitioner does not agree with the Supervising Judge's analysis or ruling, there are now other channels to seek judicial review of the underlying arguments," Trump's legal team wrote.

Later this week, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office indicated that it will close down streets near the Fulton County courthouse as a safety precaution in case an indictment is announced.

While Trump's indictment announcements have drawn protests for and against the former president, protesters are often outnumbered by members of the media who live and die on negative Trump coverage.

For her part, Willis doesn't seem phased, as she recently signaled that an announcement regarding new charges could come out in a matter of days or weeks.

"We've been working for two and a half years — we're ready to go," Willis said recently.

Trump was most recently charged by Special Counsel Jack Smith for the second time. The latest federal indictment has drawn widespread criticism as a flimsy slate of charges, at best.

Even with the indictments and negative coverage, Trump continues to show healthy fundraising power and steady momentum in the polling that he already dominates. The indictments have already proven to have backfired, significantly.
