Fani Willis told to recuse herself over wiretap

One of Donald Trump’s co-defendants in his Georgia election interference case has threatened to launch legal action against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis if she “does not recuse herself from this case by noon on Monday.”

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Harrison Floyd wrote: “I don’t want to put a black woman in Jail. But if Fani Willis does not recuse herself from this case by noon on Monday, I may have no other choice than to pursue all lawful remedies. Make Fulton Great Again.”

Floyd suggested that Willis’ office may have violated the Maryland Wiretap Act, under which it is unlawful to record any private in-person conversation or telephone communication unless you are a party to the conversation and have the permission of all of the parties.

While the majority of states have one-party consent laws that allow a conversation to be recorded so long as one person agrees, there are 11 states, including Maryland, that require two-party consent.

Under Maryland’s Wiretap Act, recording a private conversation without consent from both parties is punishable by up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.

Christopher Kachouroff, one of Floyd’s attorneys, made the same accusation against Willis on Tuesday during an interview with Phil Holloway.

Referring to Willis he said: “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.”

Holloway asked Kachouroff whether he was suggesting Willis had illegally recorded the call, and he replied: “Oh yeah, it’s a felony in Maryland.”
