Judge: Fani Willis Must Dump Wade Or Trump Prosecution

A judge on Friday rejected disqualifying controversial Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the Georgia prosecution of former President Donald Trump. But Judge Scott McAfee did leave the DA with a distinct choice.

First, McAfee claimed the Trump team did not prove the DA had a conflict of interest through her intimate relationship with her lead prosecutor.

But incredibly, he conceded that there is a “significant appearance of impropriety” in having Willis and prosecutor Nathan Wade romantically involved. The two took numerous trips together after he was hired to lead the Democratic persecution of Trump.

McAfee explained that disqualifying Willis was unnecessary due to a less intrusive alternative.

In a nonsensical ruling, the judge gave the DA’s office the option of either stepping aside entirely or purging Wade from the prosecution of the 45th president. This despite motions alleging that Willis benefited financially from the lucrative deal she gave her confessed lover.

Both denied the relationship until it was undeniable. Testimony showed it began as early as 2019.

The decision by the team of Willis and Wade was apparently made Friday afternoon when Wade decided to step away from the prosecution. The Fulton County special prosecutor withdrew from the case against Trump and 18 co-defendants.

Wade wrote a resignation letter to Willis. “I am offering my resignation in the interest of democracy, in dedication to the American public and to move this case forward as quickly as possible.”

There was no word on exactly how his walking away in disgrace benefits democracy.

Willis immediately responded by accepting Wade’s resignation and praised his “professionalism and dignity.” The DA claimed he “endured threats against you and your family, as well as unjustified attacks in the media and in court on your reputation as a lawyer.”

Michael Roman, a Republican operative and one of Trump’s co-defendants, asserted that Wade’s legal firm billed Fulton County taxpayers $250 per hour for a total of $650,000 since he was hand-selected to prosecute the former president.

Even as they denied their relationship, evidence emerged of Willis and Wade taking numerous trips together after he was appointed special prosecutor. The DA told the court she split the cost with him and reimbursed him in cash.
