Georgia DA Fani Willis Breaks Silence on Accusations of Affair With Trump Prosecutor



Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis recently spoke at the Big Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Atlanta, addressing for the first time the allegations that she had engaged in an affair with one of the top prosecutors working on the case.

During her emotional and passionate remarks at a service celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Willis humorously commented on her recent experiences, saying, “I hope for y’all this week I don’t look like what I’ve been through,” as reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The allegations against Willis arose from a court filing by Michael Roman, a former Trump campaign staff member. Roman’s filing alleges that Willis engaged in a personal, romantic relationship with a top prosecutor she appointed to work on the election interference case against Donald Trump, resulting in financial gain for both.

In his 127-page filing, Roman’s attorney, Ashleigh Merchant, claimed that the prosecutor, Nathan Wade, lacked relevant experience but had been paid approximately $650,000 in legal fees since his appointment. This arrangement, according to the filing, was self-serving. Trump’s attorney also indicated they might join the complaint against Willis.

During her remarks, which were livestreamed, Willis referred to herself as “flawed” and “imperfect.” She expressed confusion over why many questioned her decision to bring in multiple special prosecutors to the case. Without mentioning Wade by name, she defended him as a “great friend” with “impeccable credentials,” suggesting that the attacks on him were racially motivated.

“I appointed three special counselors. It’s my right to do. Paid them all the same hourly rate,” Willis said. “They only attack one. I hired one white woman: a good personal friend and great lawyer, a superstar, I tell you. I hired one white man: brilliant, my friend, and a great lawyer. And I hired one Black man, another superstar, a great friend, and a great lawyer.”

Willis did not directly address the allegations of an inappropriate relationship with Wade. She continued to praise Wade’s qualifications, noting he was paid more than double when hired by a Republican in another county and had served in various legal capacities.

“Isn’t it them playing the race card when they only question one?” Willis questioned.

In her over 30-minute speech, Willis detailed the difficulties of her role as Fulton County DA and prosecuting the Trump case, including “isolation,” “loneliness,” “backstabbing” and constant death threats. She read a letter she said she wrote to God, expressing feelings of unworthiness and the challenges she faced, including racial threats and security concerns.

Willis also called out Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for her attacks, stating, “I never want to be like those who attack me. I never want to be like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has never met me but has allowed her spirit to be filled with hate.”

Despite the challenges, Willis highlighted her team’s successes, including a 95% conviction rate, and thanked those who have made her stronger through their attacks.

Roman, Trump and 17 others pleaded not guilty in August to charges in a sweeping racketeering indictment for alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. Defendants Kenneth Chesebro, Sidney Powell, Jena Ellis and Scott Hall subsequently took plea deals in exchange for agreeing to testify against other defendants.
