Donald Trump Gets New Evidence in Fani Willis Case

Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers have requested Judge Scott McAfee to review new cell phone evidence related to the misconduct allegations surrounding Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Nathan Wade from Trump’s election interference case in Georgia. Trump’s legal team filed a supplemental brief to McAfee, asking him to review new information related to the misconduct allegations surrounding Willis. The district attorney has come under fire for her romantic relationship with special prosecutor Wade, whom she hired to help prosecute Trump and his allies in the RICO case. McAfee heard Trump co-defendant Michael Roman’s arguments seeking to disqualify Willis from the case and have the charges against him thrown out.

One of the proposed exhibits that Trump’s attorneys submitted includes an affidavit from a private investigator who analyzed Wade’s cell phone location data. The investigator said the phone data showed that in 2021, Wade twice arrived at Willis’ home late at night and left in the early morning hours, once in September and the other in November. The couple testified that they began dating until 2022 after Willis hired Wade in the Trump case.

Terrence Bradley, a friend and former law partner of Wade, also testified during the hearing, but repeatedly invoked attorney-client privileges on the stand. Atlanta-based defense lawyer Noah Pines previously told Newsweek that he doesn’t expect Willis to be disqualified based on what he’s seen in the case so far.
