( – On Monday, former President Donald Trump’s lawyers filed an appeal to dismiss the election interference case.

The appeal, filed in Georgia’s Appeals Court, seeks to overturn a decision by a lower court not to dismiss the case against the former President in Fulton County.

Steve Sadow, Trump’s lead defense attorney in the case, argues Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should have been disqualified from prosecuting the case over her alleged misconduct.

In the brief, Shadow states that “by persistently untethering herself from the legal, ethical, and professional constraints” of her office as District Attorney, Willis had “decimated” the proceeding’s integrity. The brief also describes Willis’ wounds that warrant her disqualification as “entirely self-inflincted,” suggesting the DA “disqualified herself.”

The pursuit to disqualify Willis from the case stems from revelations made in a motion fellow co-defendant Michael Roman made in January.

In the filing, Roman alleged Willis gave special prosecutor Nathan Wade an unusually large remuneration package for his work on the case despite his lack of experience, suggesting that the pair used those payments to fund their lavish vacations.

Trump’s defense attorneys argued Wade and Willis’s romantic relationship, combined with their corrupt use of taxpayer dollars, should warrant removing both from the case.

Although Wade has left the case, Willis stays on.

In a statement following Monday’s filing, Sadow expressed being “optimistic” that the Court would rule in favor of the appeal to have Willis disqualified and the case dismissed.
