(National Pulse) Brian Kemp, the supposedly Republican Governor of Georgia, is rejecting calls to remove Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the RICO prosecution of former President Donald Trump and 18 other individuals accused of interfering the 2020 presidential election.
“Up to this point, I have not seen any evidence that DA Willis’s actions – or lack thereof – warrant action by the Prosecuting Attorney Oversight Commission,” Kemp said at a press conference on Thursday before adding, “But ultimately that will be a decision that the commission will make.”
Gov. Kemp (R-GA) in his hurricane presser squashes idea of calling a special session targeting DA Willis, which Trump & his allies have pushed:

The Georgia Governor specifically rejected the call by Republican State Senator Colton Moore for a special legislative session to review the actions by District Attorney Willis, arguing that the move would “…ignore current Georgia law and directly interfere with the proceedings of a separate but equal branch of government.” Kemp declined to mention Moore specifically by name in his remarks.
