The lead attorney representing former President Donald Trump in his Georgia election interference case says the decision from a judge that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis must either step aside or fire special prosecutor Nathan Wade does not lend "appropriate significance" to their "prosecutorial misconduct."

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee issued the ruling Friday after hearing evidence presented by lawyers for co-defendants in the case who had accused Willis of having an "improper" affair with Nathan Wade, whom she hired to help prosecute the matter.

"While respecting the Court’s decision, we believe that the Court did not afford appropriate significance to the prosecutorial misconduct of Willis and Wade, including the financial benefits, testifying untruthfully about when their personal relationship began, as well as Willis’ extrajudicial MLK [day] ‘church speech,’ where she played the race card and falsely accused the defendants and their counsel of racism," Trump attorney Steve Sadow said in a statement obtained by Fox News.

"We will use all legal options available as we continue to fight to end this case, which should never have been brought in the first place," he added.
