Fani Willis has been exposed. In 2021 she hired Nathan Wade as a special prosecutor in the Trump trial. He has now been paid a total of $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022.
But, as it turns out Willis was in a relationship with Wade and they vacationed together in Napa Valley and the Caribbean among other trips the two took using money from Fulton County. She is now being pressured to remove herself and Wade from the Trump RICO case.
Soros-funded Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis had an ‘improper’ romantic relationship with a top Trump prosecutor in her office, according to a filing, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
The motion seeks to have the charges against Michael Roman dismissed and for Fani Willis, Nathan Wade and everyone in the DA’s office to be disqualified from the RICO case against Trump.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported:
“County records show that Wade, who has played a prominent role in the election interference case, has been paid nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022. The DA authorizes his compensation.”
Excerpt from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
It alleges that Willis and Wade have been involved in a romantic relationship that began before Wade was appointed special prosecutor. It says they traveled together to Napa Valley and Florida, and they cruised the Caribbean using tickets Wade purchased from Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise lines — although the filing did not include documentation of those purchases.
The motion also said the checks sent to Wade from Fulton County and his subsequent purchase of vacations for Willis could amount to honest services fraud, a federal crime in which a vendor gives kickbacks to an employer. It is also possible this could be prosecuted under the federal racketeering statute, the motion said.
Roman’s lawyer, Marietta attorney Ashleigh Merchant, wrote that the “motion is not filed lightly. Nor is it being filed without considerable forethought, research or investigation.”
But the issue had to be raised and must be heard because the issues “strike at the heart of fairness in our justice system and, if left unaddressed and unchecked, threaten to taint the entire prosecution of this case, invite error and completely undermine public confidence in any outcome in this proceeding.”
Willis and Wade, the motion contends, “have been engaged in an improper, clandestine personal relationship during the pendency of this case, which has resulted in the special prosecutor, and, in turn, the district attorney, profiting significantly from this prosecution at the expense of the taxpayers.”
The filing asserts Fani Willis never got Wade’s appointment to special prosecutor approved by the Fulton Board of Commissioners, which is required by law.
This isn’t the first time Fani Willis has been accused of partisanship and lawlessness.
In July 2022, Judge Robert McBurney admonished Fani Willis in court for hosting a fundraiser for a Democrat candidate running against one of her potential targets.
Judge Robert McBurney Lectures DA Fani Willis about the optics of her prosecuting the political rival of a politician she supports.
Seems like there’s a pattern here. We are supposed to have protections in place to avoid this scenario.
