( – On Wednesday, the Supreme Court in Georgia did not approve the plan that would create a commission authority with the right to remove state prosecutors. The Republicans in the state had been intending to use the new commission to remove Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County.

The Court looked at the Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission’s (PAQC) role which was first set up under Senate Bill 92. The bill was signed by Governor Brian Kemp into law in May. The court however stated that they doubted whether the constitution allowed for the PAQC to have the power to take action relating to the district attorney’s duties outside of the practice of law.

The decision was seen as a win for former President Donald Trump, who is the frontrunner of the 2024 presidential race as he has previously attacked Willis who brought forward against him a RICO case. Under Willis’ case, Trump has been accused of having participated in a coordinated plot to overturn the election results in the state after the 2020 presidential election. Trump has maintained that the case against him is part of a politically motivated witch hunt which is part of the efforts of the left to stop him from winning back the White House. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all 13 felony charges in this case.

Kemp stated that the creation of the commission was so that local prosecutors who did not fulfill their “constitutional and statutory duties” could be removed or be driven out of office.

State Senator Clint Dixon stated in August that the commission would be looking into Willis over the allegation that she had been politically motivated in targeting Trump following the 2020 presidential election.
