Fani Willis, the Georgia district attorney accused of having an affair with her then-married subordinate, lead prosecutor Nathan Wade, amid her case against former President Donald Trump was ordered to respond to the affair allegations by Feb. 2.
Time is up.
Now, Willis has issued her long-awaited response.
Fani Willis had an affair with Nathan Wade.
However, now Willis claims, the affair REALLY doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things because it in no way affected the Trump case.
Willis filed a 176-page long response claiming that the accusations brought up by Trump and his co-defendant Mike Roman, are “factually inaccurate” and “malicious.”
Part of that filing specifically touches on her claim that there was “no personal conflict of interest that justifies her disqualification personally or that of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.”
Willis’ filing went on to say that the “criticism of the process utilized to appoint and compensate the special prosecutors in this case demonstrates basic misunderstandings of rudimentary county and state regulations and provides no legal basis for dismissal of the indictment or disqualification of any member of the prosecution.”
No basis for dismissal?
How exactly is an illicit affair with a married man you hired not a “personal conflict of interest?”
It ultimately does not matter what Willis’ filing says.
Willis did not only have to respond to the allegations by Feb. 2 – she has to testify on Feb. 15 on live television.
You cannot hide behind a written filing on live TV.
Willis should just admit it -- the idea that an affair with a subordinate would not affect the Trump trial is absolutely ridiculous.
There are rules for a reason and Fani Willis broke a big one.
Now, she will soon face the consequences of her actions.
It could end in the entire case against Trump being thrown out.
Hope it was worth it, Fani!
