Fulton County DA Fani Willis Expected to Testify on Relationship with Trump Prosecutor Nathan Wade

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is set to testify on Thursday regarding the timeline of her relationship with Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade. The testimony comes amidst concerns that Willis may be disqualified from the case if evidence emerges showing a potential conflict of interest. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee has stated that the disqualification could occur if there is “an actual conflict or the appearance of one.”

Willis appointed Wade as a special prosecutor in the Georgia election fraud case against former President Trump and several others. Both Willis and Wade had initially sought to avoid testifying at the upcoming court hearing, where co-defendant Mike Roman will seek to have the criminal case against him dropped due to alleged misconduct by the prosecutors.

The court hearing holds significant importance as it will determine the fate of the criminal case against Roman. The allegations of misconduct by the prosecutors have raised doubts about the integrity of the case, prompting Roman’s bid for dismissal.

The relationship between Willis and Wade has become a focal point of the proceedings, with Judge McAfee emphasizing the need for transparency and impartiality in the legal process. The potential disqualification of Willis could have far-reaching implications for the ongoing case.
