Trump co-defendant threatens legal action if Fani Willis refuses to recuse herself from Trump Case

by | Apr 5, 2024

One of Donald Trump's co-defendants in his Georgia election interference case has issued a threat to initiate legal action against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis if she does not recuse herself from the case by noon on Monday.

In a post on X, Harrison Floyd wrote: “I don't want to put a black woman in Jail. But if Fani Willis does not recuse herself from this case by noon on Monday, I may have no other choice than to pursue all lawful remedies. Make Fulton Great Again.”

Floyd posted part of an article from an Atlanta area newspaper, appearing to show that Willis' office shared a recording of a conversation Willis had with his attorney in a criminal case in Maryland.

Floyd implied that Willis' office might have breached the Maryland Wiretap Act, which prohibits the recording of private in-person conversations or telephone communications without the consent of all parties involved, unless the person recording is a participant in the conversation.

According to Maryland's Wiretap Act, recording a private conversation without consent from all parties can result in penalties of up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.

Christopher Kachouroff, one of Floyd's attorneys, echoed the accusation against Willis during an interview with Phil Holloway on Tuesday. He claimed, “She did reach out to us, one of my colleagues in Maryland, and was rude, abrupt with him on the phone, and he was dealing with the Maryland case and I was dealing with the Georgia case, and she ended up recording him.”

When asked by Holloway if he was implying that Willis had illegally recorded the call, Kachouroff responded, “Oh yeah, it's a felony in Maryland.”

In another X post made Wednesday, Floyd wrote: “Fani Willis ILLEGALLY recorded a [phone emoji] call with my lawyer. It's a felony! She is a DEI [diversity, equality and inclusion] thug with a law license. Will anyone in GA stand up to her?”

Floyd, the former leader of Black Voices for Trump, is the sole individual among Trump's co-defendants to have been incarcerated in the Georgia case. He was detained between August 24 and 30, after which a $100,000 bond was secured for his release.
