Fani Willis Case Upended As Prosecutor Offers To Testify Against Her

Fani Willis

The fate of Fani Willis has been called into question once again after a Georgia prosecutor offered to testify against her, claiming another witnesses’ testimony about her relationship with Nathan Wade was wrong.

Last month, Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, gave evidence in a two-day hearing following accusations by former Donald Trump staffer and co-defendant Michael Roman that she was having an affair with Wade, a special prosecutor she hired in the high-profile case. It was also alleged the pair had benefited financially from taxpayers’ money.

Willis and Wade later admitted they had a relationship but denied a conflict of interest. The timeline of their relationship has emerged as a key point of contention, and Roman has said it started earlier than they admitted. Trump’s lawyers examined phone records alleging the pair were in a relationship before the Georgia election-fraud case began. Newsweek contacted Willis via LinkedIn for comment.

One witness in the case was Terrence Bradley, Wade’s former divorce lawyer, who gave evidence attesting that the pair’s relationship timeline was correct.

But in a Monday court filing, Cindi Lee Yeager, a co-chief deputy district attorney for the Cobb County, Georgia, district attorney’s office, said Bradley told her Willis and Wade’s relationship began earlier than they stated. This is much ado about nothing. Fani needs to step down so they can move on.

The filing, by David Shafer, a Trump co-defendant who, like Roman, has argued Willis should be removed from the case, said that Yaeger claimed on Friday that Bradley had in the past told her that Wade and Willis met and started their romantic relationship in 2019 and Willis had told Bradley to keep it quiet.
