(TargetLiberty.org) – On Sunday, Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney, addressed the issues surrounding the qualifications of special prosecutor Wade in the election interference case against more than a dozen defendants, including former President Donald Trump. This is the first time that she has spoken up since the allegations of misconduct that emerged last week against her and Wade.
On Sunday, during a speech at the Big Bethel AME Church, Willis did not directly address the allegations, however, she did reject the claims that it had been improper of her to have hired Wade in the election interference case.
Last week, Mike Roman, one of the defendants in the case, who served as Trump’s director of Election Day operations in 2020, alleged that Willis and Wade had been involved in an “improper” romantic relationship according to sources close to the pair.
Ashleigh Merchant, Roman’s lawyer, claimed, without providing hard evidence, that the alleged relations between the two had started before the election interference case and that the two had been involved in a romantic relationship and had often taken vacations together. The filings further argued that because of the relationship the indictment was “fatally defective.”
Willis in her remarks argued that she was a “little confused” as she had the right to hire three special counselors who were all paid the same amount. Still, as she pointed out only one of the three was being attacked. She argued that she had hired one white woman, one white man, and one Black man all of whom were great friends, lawyers, and superstars. While she did not specifically call Wade out, she did state that he had “impeccable credentials” having been a judge for over 10 years. He has also been running a private practice for over two years.
