Fani Willis given ultimatum to either leave Trump case or fire lover Nathan Wade

 March 16, 2024

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis was ordered to either leave the election interference case against Donald Trump or fire her lover Nathan Wade whom she assigned to lead the case.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee found that in order to resolve the "appearance of impropriety" that was created by Willis and Wade's previously hidden relationship, one of them had to leave the case. 

After Judge McAfee's order was released, it only took a few hours for a decision to be made.

News soon broke that Wade had resigned and Willis had accepted his resignation.

The two really had no choice about who was going to leave the case. Willis leaving would have delayed the case or even downright destroyed it, whereas Wade leaving makes going forward with the case much simpler.

Win for Trump

Ultimately, the real winner of this situation is Trump and his co-defendants. Even without Willis leaving the case, they have still cast serious doubts on Willis's integrity which will have an impact on how voters view this case.

Wade recognized this in his resignation letter where he stated, "I am offering my resignation in the interest of democracy, in dedication to the American public, and to move this case forward as quickly as possible."

The question is if Wade and Willis were so concerned about democracy and serving the public, why did they allow this to happen in the first place?

Willis attempted to hide her previous relationship with Wade up to the point of borderline perjuring herself.

The simple answer is Willis is so incredibly arrogant and sure of herself that she believed that her relationship with the prosecutor she appointed would remain hidden while attempting to convict one of the most powerful men in America.

Trump has been loudly proclaiming how the Justice Department has been politicized and is out to get him. Fani Willis needs to avoid any hint of unethical behavior and she failed that simple requirement.

Not their best

The Democrat Party is not sending its best to take Trump down. Willis outright campaigned on convicting Trump and now she'll be lucky to walk away from this situation being able to work in law again.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp just signed into law a new bill that will establish a committee to control "rogue" District Attorneys like Willis.

Her troubles are far from over and she likely won't get any comfort from the Democrats who were counting on her to stop Trump ahead of November's election.
