( – Last week, District Attorney Fani Willis (D) from Fulton County asked an appeals court in Georgia to not reconsider a ruling by a trial judge that allows her to continue having oversight over the state’s election interference case against former President Donald Trump and many of his allies. 

Last month, Judge Scott McAfee ended up ruling that there was an appearance of conflict in the court caused by the romantic relationship between Willis and former special prosecutor Nathan Wade. However, in his ruling, he determined that while Wade would be required to leave his position, Willis could continue having oversight. 

Willis’s office had told the Georgia Court of Appeals that the reason for that ruling was the fact that the applicants had “failed to carry their burden of persuasion and that as such the court needed to decline the interlocutory review. 

Last summer Willis had brought forward a case charging over a dozen allies who had allegedly attempted to alter the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. However, the case has since detoured as co-defendant Michael Roman brought forward evidence that showed that there was a romantic affair between Wade and Willis. Wade had previously been hired by Willis to lead the prosecution against the former President. 

During the hearing relating to the relationship, both Wade and Willis had taken the stand to defend their position and reputations. While the two confirmed that they were romantically involved, they maintained that their relationship had only started after Wade had been hired to work in this case.
