Georgia Trump prosecutor Fani Willis faces hearing on alleged misconduct

A state court in Georgia will hear evidence relating to alleged misconduct by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who launched a case against former President Trump.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis will appear for a Feb. 15 hearing regarding allegations that she had an improper relationship with her lead prosecutor.

Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee scheduled the hearing on Thursday. Willis has spearheaded the prosecution of former President Trump in his indictment on election interference charges.

Court documents filed earlier this month say Willis hired special prosecutor Nathan Wade, her alleged romantic partner, to prosecute Trump and benefited financially from the relationship in the form of lavish vacations that the two went on using funds his firm received for working the case.


Willis has not confirmed or denied the claim, but she suggested she and Wade are being scrutinized because they are Black.

Willis spoke about the matter for the first time on Sunday at the Big Bethel AME Church in Atlanta.

“They only attacked one,” she said. “First thing they say, ‘Oh, she’s gonna play the race card now.’

“But no God, isn’t it them that’s playing the race card when they only question one,” Willis asked.

Trump’s co-defendant in the Georgia case, Michael Roman, accused Willis and Wade of having an “improper” and “clandestine” affair at the same time that appointments were being made for the 2020 election interference case.

Trump has called for the case against him to be dropped outright over the allegations.

“You had a very big event yesterday as you saw in Georgia where the district attorney is totally compromised. The case has to be dropped,” Trump told reporters last week. “They went after 18 or 20 people.… She was out of her mind. Now it turns out that case is totally compromised. 

“It’s illegal. What she did is illegal. So we’ll let the state handle that, but what a sad situation it is,” he added.
