Fani Willis has mounting legal challenges on her hands.

Willis’ case against Donald Trump could come crashing down.

And Fani Willis got caught red-handed in this illegal act that could get Trump’s case thrown out.

Willis’ case based on illegally recorded phone call

Left-wing journalists Mike Isikoff – who Christopher Steele fed the Russia collusion hoax story to – and Daniel Klaidman published a fawning account of Fani Willis’ witch hunt against Donald Trump entitled “Find Me the Votes: A Hard-Charging Georgia Prosecutor, a Rogue President, and the Plot to Steal an American Election.”

In the book, Isikoff and Klaidman describe how Jordan Fuchs – a Trump hating activist embedded in the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office – was the source of the recording of the January 2, 2021, phone call where Trump asked Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for another recount to “find the 11,780 votes” that would show Trump won Georgia and not Joe Biden.

However, The Federalist’s Mollie Hemmingway reported that Fuchs illegally recorded the call as she was in Florida at the time where state law requires both parties consent to recording a phone call.

“However, the person who recorded the phone call wasn’t in Fulton County or even in Georgia. That’s a problem. Jordan Fuchs, a political activist who serves as Raffensperger’s chief of staff, was in Florida, where it is illegal to record a call without all parties to the call consenting to the recording. She neither asked for nor received consent to record,” Hemmingway reported.

Willis gives Fuchs immunity

The illegally recorded phone call was the initial evidence Willis used to kick off her witch hunt into Donald Trump that ended with a RICO indictment against Trump and 18 other co-defendants on Constitutionally dubious charges.

“It was all the evidence Fani Willis needed to get started,” Isikoff and Klaidman wrote, “The recording was the single piece of damning evidence that had launched the investigation.”

But at every step of the way, investigators sought to cover up Fuchs’ potential criminal exposure.

The January 6 Committee never called Fuchs as a witness.

Willis granted Fuchs immunity from prosecution to testify before the runaway grand jury she impaneled.

“Fuchs has never talked publicly about her taping of the phone call; she learned, after the fact, that Florida where she was at the time is one of fifteen states that requires two-party consent for the taping of phone calls. A lawyer for Raffensperger’s office asked the January 6 committee not to call her as a witness for reasons the committee’s lawyers assumed were due to her potential legal exposure. The committee agreed. But when she was called before a Fulton County special grand jury convened by Fani Willis, she was granted immunity and confirmed the taping, according to three sources with direct knowledge of her testimony,” Isikoff and Klaidman added.

Fruit of the poisonous tree

Hemmingway explained that the illegally recorded phone call could bring down the entire case against Trump due to the legal doctrine of the “fruit of the poisonous tree.”

The “fruit of the poisonous tree” doctrine holds that any evidence that results from illegally obtained evidence is excluded from trial.

If the illegally recorded phone call is what Willis used to launch her probe into Trump, Trump and his co-defendants could argue the entire case is corrupted by this fact.

Willis is already facing a motion to disqualify her from the case on conflict-of-interest grounds due to hiring her lover Nathan Wade as special investigator, and then running a yearslong probe that allowed Wade to rack up $654,000 in billable hours.

And even if Willis survives what should be a slam dunk decision to disqualify her by Judge Scott McAfee, she will then face the first of many serious Constitutional challenges to her case.
