Harrison Floyd wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: “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 posted part of an article purportedly from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution suggesting that Willis’ office shared a recording of a conversation Willis had with his attorney, Carlos J.R. Salvado, in an unrelated criminal case in Maryland,” Newsweek reported.

“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,” the outlet added.

“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,” the outlet continued.

“Newsweek contacted the Fulton County District Attorney’s office for comment outside of normal working hours. Christopher Kachouroff, one of Floyd’s attorneys, made the same accusation against Willis on Tuesday during an interview with Phil Holloway,” the report said.

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 that Willis had made an illegal recording of the call, and he replied, “Oh yeah, it’s a felony in Maryland.”

In a separate X post on Wednesday, Floyd declared: “Fani Willis ILLEGALLY recorded a [phone emoji] call with my lawyer. It’s a felony! She is a DEI [diversity, equality, and inclusion] thug with a law license. Will anyone in GA stand up to her?”
