MSNBC Analyst Calls for Fani Willis to Step Down Over ‘Infuriating’ Ruling: ‘Almost a Fatal Blow’

March 15, 2024

McAfee ordered that either Willis or special prosecutor Nathan Wade be removed from the case. Weissmann called the ruling by McAfee “absolutely infuriating” on Friday’s Morning Joe shortly after it was released. Weissmann recommended Willis recuse herself from the Trump case and appoint someone else to oversee the operation. He called the McAfee ruling an almost “fatal blow” to Willis as a prosecutor. “The key is how to go forward because clearly Wade is off, but I think this is such a huge body blow, almost a fatal blow to Fani Willis,” he said.
