Finally! One GOP Georgia State Senator Is Fighting Back Against Trump-Prosecuting DA Willis

As former President Donald Trump faces yet another indictment, his supporters are growing increasingly frustrated with House and Senate Republicans in Washington, who are not exactly running to microphones to defend Trump. But after the most recent indictment in Fulton County, Georgia, at least one state lawmaker has had enough and is fighting back. 

Colton Moore is a Republican State Senator in Georgia representing the 53rd State Senate district, an area north of Rome in the northeast corner of the state. On Thursday, Moore sent a letter to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, announcing he would be pushing for an emergency session of the legislature to conduct a full investigation into the actions of Fulton County Prosecutor Fani Willis.

The usual names have come forth to defend Trump, even though some might be obligatory. House Speaker Kevin McCarty issued a statement on X (Twitter) that said: 

Justice should be blind, but Biden has weaponized government against his leading political opponent to interfere in the 2024 election. Now a radical DA in Georgia is following Biden’s lead by attacking President Trump and using it to fundraise her political career. Americans see through this desperate sham.

Other House members who have traditionally supported Trump, including Reps. Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Tayor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Byron Donalds, and Andy Biggs, have spoken out about the indictment, and each has called out a “two-tiered justice system.” In the Senate, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has stayed silent on the most recent Trump indictment, a move that has become the norm for him. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has criticized the selection of three of the most liberal jurisdictions in the country, Manhattan, Washington D.C., and Fulton County. Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasted the Georgia indictment as “disgraceful” and stated that “Joe Biden & Democrats are weaponizing the justice system because they fear the voters.”

But could Trump supporters be beginning to feel as if the same Trump faithful keep stepping up to defend him? Cliff Maloney has run several America First campaigns in Georgia, and may be saying out loud about Colton Moore’s initiative, what a lot of Trump supporters are thinking. “Finally, a leader who is stepping up and fighting back against the epidemic of corrupt District Attorneys that are drunk on power.” 

Something else Trump supporters may think as well: Where are Republican D.A.’s willing to bring charges against Joe Biden? Back in April, after Trump’s New York indictment, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer stated that he received two calls from Republican D.A.’s from Kentucky and Tennessee, both looking at ways to charge Joe Biden — and possibly other Biden family members — related to the ongoing investigation into family business dealings overseas. Mike Davis is the former chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee and president of the Article III Project, and says it is definitely possible: 

I think our Republican AGs and DAs should get creative. You just need probable cause. A grand jury can indict a ham sandwich. We just saw that in New York. And the Bidens actually committed real crimes. These are real crimes that the Bidens committed. There is smoking-gun evidence that the Bidens were corruptly and illegally on Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs’ payrolls.

Out of control D.A.’s like Fani Willis continue to go after Donald Trump and attempt to make an example of him for asking questions and taking on the deep state. But if Gov. Kemp grants the request of a special session of the Georgia legislature, and Moore and his colleagues get as far as defunding Willis and even to impeachment, Willis just may be made an example of herself. While that conclusion may be a long way off, it could give potential Republican D.A.s something to think about.  

The timetable of when Colton Moore and his colleagues might get an answer from Gov. Kemp on a possible special session and when any investigation or impeachment proceedings of Fani Willis could begin are unknown. But if Republicans on the national level are unwilling to step up and fight back, it may very well be time for state lawmakers to go over their heads.
