Fani Willis And Nathan Wade Subpoenaed To Testify At Hearing About Their Romantic Relationship Allegations

by Gee NY

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade, involved in the extensive racketeering case against former President Donald Trump and others in Georgia, have been subpoenaed to address allegations of an improper romantic relationship.

The subpoenas were issued on behalf of Michael Roman, an individual indicted alongside Trump in August, seeking the dismissal of charges related to his role in Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign.

Roman, the director of election day operations for Trump’s campaign, faces seven counts linked to what Fulton County prosecutors claim was a scheme to overturn Georgia’s presidential election results.

The subpoenas, served Thursday, are part of Roman’s strategy to call Willis and Wade as witnesses during a hearing scheduled for Feb. 15 before Judge Scott McAfee.

Roman’s attorney filed a motion asserting that the prosecution against him is “invalid and unconstitutional.” Simultaneously, the motion addresses the allegations of an improper relationship between Willis and Wade.

Willis had enlisted Wade to assist in the case against Trump, and Roman contends that the two prosecutors financially benefited from their association.

The accusations about the alleged relationship surfaced earlier this month, lacking concrete evidence of any entanglement.

Roman also claimed, without providing evidence, that Wade received over $650,000 from the district attorney’s office and took Willis on a vacation. Besides seeking the dismissal of charges, Roman aims to disqualify Willis from the case.

Notably, Willis was scheduled to testify in Wade’s divorce proceedings this week. However, a temporary agreement between Wade and his estranged wife may impact this development.

Jocelyn Wade, in previous proceedings, presented evidence suggesting that Nathan Wade had booked roundtrip flights for himself and Willis.

Judge McAfee has given Willis’ office until February 2 to respond to the allegations. Neither Willis nor Wade has publicly commented on Roman’s claims, with the district attorney’s office indicating that responses will be presented in court filings.

In a recent speech at a historic Black church in Atlanta, Willis defended hiring Wade, emphasizing his “impeccable credentials” without directly addressing the allegations.

Former President Trump has also joined Roman’s efforts to dismiss the indictment and disqualify Willis, Wade, and the entire district attorney’s office.

Initially, Roman was one of 18 co-defendants charged alongside Trump in the alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

Four have since accepted plea deals, while Roman maintains a not guilty plea on all counts. The upcoming hearing promises to shed light on the complex web of legal and personal entanglements surrounding this high-profile case.
