Fani Hit With New Allegations, Illegal Recording?

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is back in the news and is now facing new allegations.

A defense lawyer for one of the defendants in the Trump RICO case has alleged that a phone call with Willis was illegally recorded by the DA.

Attorney Christopher Kachouroff, who represents Trump co-defendant Harrison Floyd has claimed that Willis recorded a call while speaking to one of Kachouroff’s Maryland colleagues without their knowledge.

“She did reach out to us, one of my colleagues in Maryland, and was rude, abrupt with him on the phone, and he was dealing with the Maryland case and I was dealing with the Georgia case, and she ended up recording him,” Kachouroff told Town Hall’s Phil Halloway during an interview.

If Willis recorded the phone call without informing the attorney on the other end, it would be a violation of the Maryland Wiretap Act, which requires consent from both parties. The crime could be punishable by up to five years in prison, with fines hitting $10,000. The law is different in Georgia, which only requires one-party consent.

Harrison Floyd, an African American was the only co-defendant jailed and he has responded to the allegation noting that if Willis doesn’t recuse herself he “may have no other choice than to pursue all lawful remedies.”
