A Republican state senator in Georgia called for an emergency session on Thursday to move towards possibly impeaching Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for her actions against former President Donald Trump.

“As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis. America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors politically TARGET political opponents,” Moore wrote.

“We must strip all funding and, if appropriate, impeach Fani Willis,” he added. “I’m calling on patriots across America to join me in this fight.”

Willis indicted Trump the week over the former president’s alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.

In the State of Georgia, an emergency session must either be called by the governor or with the written support of 3/5 of both legislative chambers.

Leading the effort, Moore sent the following letter to Gov. Brian Kemp:

Dear Governor Kemp:

We, the undersigned, being duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and comprising 3/5 of each respective house, pursuant to Article IV, Section II, Paragraph VII(b), hereby certify to you, in writing, with a copy to the Secretary of State, that in our opinion an emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section, for all purposes, to include, without limitation, the review and response to the actions of Fani Willis.

Earlier this week, Trump’s lawyers responded to the former president’s indictment in Georgia, calling the move “shocking and absurd.”

“The events that have unfolded today have been shocking and absurd, starting with the leak of a presumed and premature indictment before the witnesses had testified or the grand jurors had deliberated and ending with the District Attorney being unable to offer any explanation,” lawyers Drew Findling, Jennifer Little and Marissa Goldberg said in a statement.

“In light of this major fumble, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office clearly decided to force through and rush this 98-page indictment. This one-sided grand jury presentation relied on witnesses who harbor their own personal and political interests— some of whom ran campaigns touting their efforts against the accused and/or profited from book deals and employment opportunities as a result,” the joint statement continued. “We look forward to a detailed review of this indictment which is undoubtedly just as flawed and unconstitutional as this entire process has been.”
