( – On Monday, Fani Willis, District Attorney of Fulton County District, went after Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio), the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, as Jordan continues to probe Willis’s alleged misconduct as she pursues former President Donald Trump’s prosecution for election interference.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Willis accused of repeatedly attacking her office “with no legitimate purpose.”

Willis claimed that “Anyone who knows Jim Jordan,” knew the Republican lawmaker’s only purpose was attempting to “interfere in a criminal investigation,” describing him as a clown.

Earlier in the year, Jordan threatened Willis that she’d be held in contempt of Congress if she didn’t cooperate in the probe into her usage of federal funds.

Willis ultimately cooperated in the investigation, which she labeled as “illegitimate” on Monday, criticizing Jordan’s actions as “disgusting.”

The Fulton County District Attorney also suggested the Ohio Republican was turning “his tricks” and was now focusing on grant programs, which she said she’d “invite him to do.”

She added that although she “complied with [Jordan’s] subpoenas,” he continued to attack her “to interfere in a criminal investigation.”

Georgia’s criminal case against the former President has been derailed because of hearings into Willis’s conduct, which focused on the romantic relationship she had with a prosecutor she assigned to the case.

In March, Nathan Wade, the prosecutor she had a relationship with, stepped down from the case. Wade stepped down following Judge Scott McAfee’s ruling that one of them would need to recuse themselves.

A trial date for Trump’s case is yet to be set, although Willis is trying to target August this year.
