Georgia state Senator Colton Moore has taken initial steps toward impeaching Fulton County District Attorney Fanni Willis for her actions against former president Donald Trump.
Moore wrote a letter to Governor Brian Kemp announcing an initiative to begin an emergency session to conduct an investigation into her actions.
Willis is the district attorney who brought charges against Trump on 13 counts, which Sara Gonzales reiterates are “questionable counts.”
Gonzales sat down with Moore to find out more about the steps he’s taken.
“As a state senator, I have a job to do, and that’s to take advantage of my position in the legislature,” he tells Gonzales. “We know in the presidential system of American government, the legislature has some amazing powers, some amazing checks and balances, the first of which is the power of the purse.”
Moore tells Gonzales that his first objective is to defund the district attorney, who he says is “using my taxpayer dollars, my constituents, Georgians across the state to take on political persecution, and to the tune of the death penalty.”
“I’m not going to sit around while the former president could potentially be executed in the state of Georgia,” he adds.
He’s not the only one he thinks should be taking action, however.
Moore believes more people need to “start taking advantage of their phones and start calling their senators and their representatives and take action themselves.”
While he wants Willis impeached, the first step is to defund her.
“It’s an absolute train wreck what’s going on in Fulton County, and then this district attorney says she’s going to have these folks in the courtroom in six months,” while there are men in prison who have been waiting for over a year to get a jury.
“This is completely politically motivated. It’s political persecution, and why my fellow Republicans are sitting around in the shade, I’ll never understand,” Moore adds.
