Fani Willis

“The Georgia prosecutor trying former President Donald Trump for seeking to overturn his 2020 election defeat acknowledged on Friday having a personal relationship with another lawyer on the criminal case

“Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in a court filing said claims that threatened to upend her office’s historic prosecution had ‘no merit.’ Trump and two co-defendants are seeking to disqualify Willis and dismiss the charges, alleging Willis benefited financially from an ‘improper, clandestine personal relationship’ with Nathan Wade, a lawyer she hired to help lead the investigation…

“In a sworn statement, Wade said the personal relationship with Willis began in 2022, after he was hired as a special prosecutor on the 2020 election probe. Willis received no financial benefit from the relationship, his statement said. Citing unnamed sources and previously sealed court records, Trump co-defendant Michael Roman alleged in a court filing that Wade paid for vacations with Willis while he was being compensated by her office for work on the probe.” Reuters
