Prosecutor in Georgia v. Trump acknowledges relationship with appointed prosecutor

Prosecutor in Georgia v. Trump acknowledges relationship with appointed prosecutor

The Georgia prosecutor, who filed election interference charges against former US President Donald Trump, Fanny Willis, admitted on Friday (2) that she had a relationship with the prosecutor she appointed to work on the case.

Citing the relationship between Fanny and special prosecutor Nathan Wade, Trump and two other accusers called for her to be disqualified and the charges dismissed.

In a 176-page brief filed with Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, Fanney called the petition meritless and asked the judge to dismiss it. She stated that she was not in a relationship with Wade when he was appointed, in November 2021, as a special prosecutor, where he allegedly received more than 650 thousand US dollars (3.2 million Brazilian reals).

Wade, who is going through a divorce, said in his sworn statement that he and Fanny began a personal relationship in 2022, and that she “did not receive money or achieve any personal financial gain” from her role as special prosecutor.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to charges of participating in a criminal conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 elections in Georgia, where Democrat Joe Biden won by about 12,000 votes.

In a message posted today on his platform Truth Social, Trump said that Fannie “just admitted that she had an affair with the prosecutor she appointed, in consultation with the White House and the Department of Justice, to arrest President Donald J.” Trump card. This means that this fraud has been completely discredited and ended.”

Fanny Willis called for the trial of the former president and 14 other defendants to begin on August 5, that is, three months before the presidential elections.

Trump also faces federal charges over his efforts to subvert the 2020 election and the invasion of the US Capitol by GOP supporters on January 6, 2021. Additionally, Trump and his eldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric, are on trial in New York. Charged with corporate fraud, the former president is scheduled to stand trial in Florida in May on charges of mishandling classified documents after leaving the White House.
