Georgia Republicans unveiled a one-two punch Friday targeting Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
Last year, Willis secured the indictment of former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants on allegations that they were involved in a conspiracy to interfere with the results of the 2020 election.
In recent days, Willis has come under fire amid allegations of a personal relationship with Nathan Wade, the prosecutor she hired to oversee the investigation of Trump. Documents released as part of Wade’s divorce case indicated the two have traveled together.
Republican state Rep. Charlice Byrd on Friday introduced a resolution calling for Willis to be impeached.

“The First Amendment is still the bedrock of this country and Fani Willis can’t overturn it because she has Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Byrd said in the statement. “It’s time our state lawmakers draw a line in the sand and put an end to her refusal to uphold the Constitution.”
The statement noted that “Willis
