The hearing to determine whether Fulton County DA Fani Wilis should be disqualified for the case resumes on Tuesday

The judge who presided over the case of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has announced that Nathan Wade’s former law partner, with whom she is alleged to have been in an intimate relationship, will be required to testify before the court about his knowledge of their timeline.

Bradley is Nathan Wade’s former law partner and divorce lawyer. Defense counsel claims that Bradley had direct knowledge of the relationship between DA Willis, Nathan Wade, and the special prosecutor before he joined the Trump election case.

After the judge said that Bradley appeared to have misused his attorney-client privilege, the decision was made after a Monday in-camera meeting, which will remain sealed, between Bradley and his lawyer.


The Judge said that he would address the issue of the data on Nathan Wade’s phone, which the Trump lawyers want to enter into evidence during the hearing scheduled for Friday.

Fulton County DA Willis and Special Prosecutor Wade brought the Georgia 2020 election case against former president Donald Trump and other 18 people last year.

Trump’s team responded to Willis’ denial on Monday, following their initial filing about the phone records.

Willis, the district attorney of Fulton County in Georgia, said that the accusations made against her regarding an “improper” relationship with Nathan Wade as a special prosecutor were brought because she is Black.

According to a Friday filing by the attorney for former President Trump, Wade visited the Hapeville area at least 35 times before he was employed.

Wade testified in court last week that Willis had not visited his condo more than ten times before being hired by the company in November 2021. Willis and Wade claim that their relationship started in early 2022.

The dispute between Trump’s lawyers and his attorneys is centered around the date that the relationship between the two lawyers began. They claim their romance compromised the integrity of Trump’s case.

The defense is attempting to prove that Willis received any financial benefit from Wade as a result of their relationship. This is at the core of their argument for Willis’ disqualification.
