Georgia Appeals Court Pauses Trump 2020 Election Case

Jun 6, 2024   •   45 MIN
A Georgia appeals court has halted the election subversion conspiracy case against former President Donald Trump and several of his co-defendants until a panel of judges rules on whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should be disqualified, the latest indication this trial won't occur before election day in November. Also, Judge Eileen Cannon, who’s overseeing his classified documents trial, revamped the timetable, pushing several pre-trial hearings later. Former federal judge Nancy Gertner, former federal prosecutor Jeffrey Toobin, and CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen share their thoughts on the new developments. Plus, Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, was asked by The Washington Post how his fellow evangelicals reconcile their faith with the former president's behavior. “Character does matter, and individual voters will make those assessments. But I think that the idea that either voters of faith or all voters disqualify someone because of moral failings in the past is just out of step with who the American people are," Reed told the Post. Anderson gets reaction from Russell Moore, editor in chief of Christianity Today.
