Cell phone records suggest that Fani Willis lied about relationship with Nathan Wade

 February 26, 2024

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has faced growing scrutiny in recent weeks over her alleged romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, a lawyer she hired to help prosecute former President Donald Trump.

That scrutiny grew more intense after a court filing by Trump's legal team pointed to cell phone records suggesting that Wade regularly visited Willis' home. 

Records suggest regular late night visits

According to the New York Post, the records show Wade's phone was in the vicinity of Willis' condo in Hapeville, Georgia on at least 35 occasions in 2021.

The alleged visits took place between April 1, 2021 and November 30, 2021, with some lasting "for an extended period of time" and occurring late in the evening.

In one instance, Wade appears to have arrived at the condo at 10:45 p.m. on September 11, 2o21, and did not leave until 3:28 a.m.

Most of the alleged condo trips appear to have taken place before Wade joined the task force responsible for prosecuting Trump.

That undermines the sworn claims made by both he and Willis that their romantic relationship did not begin until after Wade joined the prosecution effort.

Attorney says Willis and Wade could be charged with perjury

Keith Johnson is a defense attorney who practices in Georgia, and he told the Post that the phone records "could lead to perjury charges" against Willis and Wade.

"The affidavit presented by the defense attorney in the case indicates there were several phone calls and text messages between the parties prior to the appointment of Mr. Wade as special prosecutor," Johnson pointed out.

"That directly contradicts the sworn testimony of both Mr. Wade and Ms. Willis who stated that they had a platonic relationship prior to him being appointed," he stressed.

"Whenever there is a contradictory testimony under oath … you have to look at the intent of the parties and whether they knowingly made false statements," Johnson added.

Willis' office disputes allegations

The Post noted that Willis' office responded to the filing by Trump's legal team with a filing of its own on Friday which attempted to cast doubt on the cell phone data.

"The records do nothing more than demonstrate that Special Prosecutor Wade’s telephone was located somewhere within a densely populated multiple-mile radius where various residences, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and other businesses are located," the filing asserted.

"The records do not prove, in any way, the content of the communications between Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis; they do not prove that Special Prosecutor Wade was ever at any particular location or address; they do not prove that Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis were ever in the same place during any of the times listed," it declared.
