Fani Willis Hearing Turns Into ‘Dumpster Fire’: Georgia Attorney

The Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s hearing is reportedly turning into an “ethical dumpster fire,” according to Georgia attorney Philip Holloway. Holloway believes that if they can prove satisfactorily that she and/or Nathan Wade have made material misrepresentations to the court, she could be in very big trouble. He also believes that the judge did a good job on balance, though he did surrender control to DA Willis when she took the stand.

Willis took the stand in a hearing where defense prosecutors are seeking to have her removed from former President Donald Trump’s election interference case over allegations about her relationship with Fulton County special prosecutor Nathan Wade. Trump and 18 other co-defendants have been accused of Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act in connection to alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in the state. Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the case.

During her testimony, Willis disputed claims that her relationship with Wade happened before he was appointed to the case against Trump. Wade previously testified that he and Willis went on several trips together and she reimbursed him in cash after paying for them on his business credit card. Trump criticized Willis in a Friday post on TruthSocial, stating that “Does anybody really believe that Fani Willis paid cash to her ‘lover’ whenever they took expensive ‘trips’ together.

The hearing will continue on Friday, but it is unlikely that Willis will take the stand again to testify.
