( – Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is challenging a judicial decision that dismissed several charges against former President Donald Trump and other defendants related to the Georgia election interference case.

Willis submitted an appeal on Thursday in response to the March decision that eliminated six specific charges.

Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee of Fulton County ruled that six of the charges in the indictment should be dropped, including three charges directly involving Trump. Despite this, McAfee’s ruling did not affect the remaining charges, and he noted that the prosecution could seek to re-indict on the dropped charges, as reported by The Associated Press.

One particular charge that was dismissed involved a phone call made by Trump to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2, 2021. During this call, Trump allegedly urged the secretary to “find 11,780 votes,” as reported by the Washington Examiner.

The decision to appeal followed an earlier move by the appeals court to consider an appeal by Trump and his co-defendants aiming to disqualify Willis from the case, according to ABC News.

In August of the previous year, Trump and 18 others entered a plea of not guilty to all charges listed in the indictment, which accused them of attempting to manipulate the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, as reported by various news outlets. Meanwhile, four of the defendants have agreed to plea deals in return for their cooperation in testifying against other co-defendants.
