MoveOn Calls on Georgia Court of Appeals to Stop Delays in Trump Trials

MoveOn runs full-page ad in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

WASHINGTON, D.C. – MoveOn Political Action is calling on the Georgia Court of Appeals to stop delaying the criminal case against former President Donald Trump for his interference in Georgia’s 2020 election. On behalf of Donald Trump and his allies, the appeals court set a tentative date of October 4 for oral arguments to consider whether Judge Fani Willis is disqualified from prosecuting the election interference case, preventing the beginning of the trial. His strategy is likely to delay as long as he can—keeping pertinent information from voters and securing a win in November—and then claiming immunity or pardoning himself. And right now, it’s working, with three out of four of his trials postponed indefinitely. 

MoveOn is running a full-page ad in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution today to tell the court to stop the delays.  

Said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting,For far too long, there have been different sets of justice in our legal system—one for the wealthy and powerful, and another for the rest of us. Voters deserve to have verdicts on Trump’s crimes well before Election Day. It’s Trump v. United States, and we, the people, have a constitutional right to a speedy trial. It’s time for the judges overseeing Trump’s cases to protect the rights of the American people and stop the delays.” 

So far, more than 50,000 Americans have signed a MoveOn petition calling for the legal and justice system to stop the delays in Trump’s prosecution and demanding a trial and verdict on his election interference case before November 5.
