Jim Jordan got on his high horse this week and requested information from Fani Willis on the Georgia false electors case that she is prosecuting. Jordan also questioned Willis’ motivation and the timing of the indictments. As Julia Roberts said in ‘Pretty Woman’ “Mistake, big Mistake”
Her response was withering, basically calling Jordan a moron. The following excerpts of her response gives more justice than my description of her letter. First, about Jordan’s concern about the 19 being indicted, including Trump,
“Here is another reality you must face: Those who wish to avoid felony charges in Fulton County, Georgia — including violations of Georgia RICO law — should not commit felonies in Fulton County, Georgia.”
About Jordan’s interference,
“There is no justification in the Constitution for Congress to interfere with a state criminal matter, as you attempt to do.”
About Jordan’s threat to cut federal funding,
“If you and your colleagues follow through on your threats to deny this office federal funds, please be aware that you will be deciding to allow serial rapists to go unprosecuted, hate crimes to be unaddressed and to cancel programs for at-risk children. Such vengeful, uncalled for legislative action would impose serious harm on the citizens we serve, including the fact that it will make them less safe.”
Then she really starts taking Jordan to the woodshed,
“Your job description as a legislator does not include criminal law enforcement, nor does it include supervising a specific criminal trial because you believe that doing so will promote your partisan political objectives.”
“Your letter makes clear that you lack a basic understanding of the law, its practice, and the ethical obligations of attorneys generally and prosecutors specifically.”
“Settled constitutional law (permits her) “to ignore your unjustified and illegal intrusion into an open state criminal prosecution.”
She points out the fact that Jordan is not a lawyer and suggest he buy a book on RICO statutes.
“As a non-member of the bar, you can purchase a copy for two hundred forty-nine dollars.”
Then Willis suggests what Jordan should be doing, instead.
“You should consider directing the USDOJ to investigate the racist threats that have come to my staff and me because of this investigation.”
An ass whuppin or what? This lady is going to go places.
