Testimony By Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade May Derail Willis’ Case Against Trump

The case against former President Donald Trump, led by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, is potentially facing a significant setback. This follows a recent hearing where special prosecutor Nathan Wade, who has been romantically linked with Willis, gave testimony that may have further complicated Willis’ position.

During the hearing, a former employee of the Fulton County DA’s office, and a friend of Willis since college, testified under oath that Willis and Wade started their romantic relationship in 2019. This contradicts previous statements from both Willis and Wade who had claimed their relationship only began in 2022.

According to MSNBC legal analyst Caroline Polisi, this misrepresentation could be detrimental to Willis’ case against Trump. “Don’t let the legalese fool you. This is epic. This is monumental. If things are going in the direction we think, Fani Willis lied to the court, it’s game over for her,” Polisi said.

Once Wade took the stand, questions were raised about his and Willis’ travel arrangements. He was asked about a cabin in Tennessee he and Willis were alleged to have stayed in. His response, “I book lots of cabins,” did little to clarify matters. Wade also stated that he and Willis would drive from Atlanta to Tennessee just for lunch to avoid recognition.

Wade went on to claim that Willis covered her own expenses during their travels. However, he could only provide receipts showing payments made using his business credit card, asserting that reimbursements from Willis were often made in cash.

In a particularly dramatic moment, Wade admitted to having slept with Willis, contradicting his previous claims of not engaging in sexual relations outside his recent marriage.

If Willis is disqualified from prosecuting the Trump case as a result of this hearing, the case would need to be reassigned. Polisi explained to Mediaite the potential impact of such a development: “Willis will be disqualified, which means her entire office is disqualified, which means the case will have to be re-assigned and languish with the PAC of Georgia, effectively killing the case. Her credibility is completely shot.”
