Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, a Democrat who opposes former President Trump, has recently received a subpoena to testify regarding allegations of misconduct. ABC News reports that Willis and her colleague, prosecutor Nathan Wade, have been summoned to appear at an upcoming evidentiary hearing.
This hearing aims to investigate claims that they were involved in an inappropriate relationship while conducting their investigation into the former president. The shocking revelation came to light through a lawsuit filing. Willis has been accused of engaging in an improper relationship with Wade, who was in the process of getting a divorce.
The lawsuit was filed by Ashleigh Merchant, an attorney representing one of President Donald Trump’s co-defendants in the Georgia indictment. Merchant initiated the lawsuit after facing obstacles in obtaining information through public records requests.
ABC News noted:
“The claim that Willis and Wade had been subpoenaed to testify was contained in a copy of the lawsuit, obtained by ABC News, that was filed by the attorney for one of Trump’s co-defendants in the election case, accusing the Fulton County district attorney’s office of “intentionally withholding information.”
Willis’s office, as expected, refuted the allegation.
According to the DA’s spokesperson, they have furnished her with all the requested materials, as she is entitled to. The situation is particularly unfavorable for Willis and Wade, as they are scheduled to testify in a televised hearing on February 15. Trump and his legal team have already cited Willis’s alleged improper financial and romantic involvement with Wade as a basis to dismiss the charges against him.
ABC News added:
“Merchant, the attorney for Trump co-defendant Michael Roman, made the misconduct allegations against Willis earlier this month in a filing that seeks to dismiss the election interference indictment and disqualify Willis based on allegations that she “engaged in a personal, romantic relationship” with prosecutor Nathan Wade that allegedly resulted in financial gain for both of them.”
