Fani Willis to appear in court over allegations of improper relationship with prosecutor

by ian


Fulton County DA Fani Willis will soon appear in court over accusations of an improper relationship with a top prosecutor in the Trump election interference case.

In a bombshell filing last week, defendant Michael Roman accused Willis of paying prosecutor Nathan Wade hundreds of thousands of dollars so he could take her on lavish vacations.

Wade has no previous experience with felony trials and also filed for divorce the day after he signed on as a special prosecutor in the Trump case. Judge Scott McAffee will now consider if that’s comprised the case.

Willis responded earlier this week, alleging that those who are criticizing her are guilty of racism.

The DA must file a written response to the allegations by Feb. 2. There will be a hearing on Feb. 15 to see if she is disqualified from the case.

A separate judge will decide if key evidence from Wade’s divorce case will be unsealed. That hearing happens on Jan. 31.
