Witness says Fani Willis and Nathan Wade relationship started in 2019

 February 17, 2024

A witness who testified at an evidentiary hearing Thursday to determine whether Fulton County Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis and prosecutor Nathan Wade acted unethically said that their relationship has been going on since 2019, not 2022 after Wade was hired by Willis to prosecute former President Donald Trump as both had said.

Robin Yeartie, a close friend and former co-worker of Willis, said that he had witnessed hugging and kissing by Willis and Wade since 2019, which contradicted their claims that the relationship didn't pre-exist Wade's hiring and influence it.

Yeartie's testimony caused the judge to refuse a motion to quash the hearing, leading to Willis taking the stand.

“You know that their relationship, their personal relationship, began shortly after this municipal court conference?” Trump co-defendant Michael Roman’s attorney Ashleigh Merchant asked of Yeartie, referring to a conference that took place in 2019.

Yeartie replied, "Yes."

Should be disqualified

Wade has been paid $650,000 in legal fees to assist on the case, far more than either of the other two prosecutors Willis hired for the same kind of work.

Wade then paid for several luxury vacations he and Willis took together. Wade and Willis claimed that she paid for her part of the vacations by paying him cash to pay for expenses put on Wade's credit card.

Trump co-defendant Michael Roman has filed to disqualify Willis and Wade from the case because of these allegations and their romantic relationship.

Willis took the stand to testify at the hearing after Yeartie's testimony, but she ended up launching a tirade at the defendant's lawyers.

She's losing it

“You’ve been intrusive into people’s personal lives. You’re confused,” Willis told attorneys looking to obtain personal records from her.

“You think I’m on trial. These people are on trial for trying to steal an election in 2020. I’m not on trial — no matter how hard you try to put me on trial!” she shouted.

Her outburst tells us one of two things: she's either trying to distract from the matter at hand and figures a strong protest will get them to back off, or she is really so arrogant that she thinks she didn't do anything wrong and that people hate Trump so much they will ignore her terrible and possibly illegal behavior.

In trying to explain how she paid Wade back in cash for the vacations they went on, Willis may have gotten herself into even deeper trouble.

She apparently said that she took a large amount of cash from her first campaign for DA, and "kept" it. This is illegal and could lead to her being criminally charged.
