Coordination Questions Arise as Special Prosecutor Meets White House

( – A co-defendant in the Georgia election interference trial submitted a filing Monday night that made the bombshell claim that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis was engaged in an “improper” relationship with the special prosecutor in the case, Nathan Wade, CBS News reported.

The filing presents no documented evidence for the allegation, relying on “sources” close to the district attorney and special prosecutor.

The allegations were made in a motion to disqualify filed by attorneys for former Trump campaign official Michael Roman. Along with Donald Trump, Roman is one of over a dozen people facing a slew of charges in the Fulton County case, including racketeering charges.

Roman’s attorneys allege that Willis has been in a romantic relationship with Wade and has financially benefited from it. Without citing evidence, the filing claims that Wade paid for the cruises and vacations the pair took together, including to the Caribbean, Napa Valley, and Florida.

They allege that the relationship began before District Attorney Willis appointed Wade as special prosecutor in the case. She also approved his salary for work in the District Attorney’s anti-corruption unit, which, according to records, totaled over $650,000 since November 2021.

Exhibits attached to the motion itemize some of the billing Wade submitted to the District Attorney for his work as the special prosecutor. Included in the exhibits are details of two meetings Wade had at the White House on May 23, 2022, and November 18, 2022.

Unsurprisingly, Trump supporters have latched onto these two meetings at the White House to claim that they are proof that the Biden administration colluded with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in its investigation of Donald Trump.

However, it is just as likely that the meetings were to interview West Wing career employees who were working at the White House at the time Donald Trump was president.

Roman’s attorneys are seeking to have the charges against him dismissed, claiming that the entire prosecution is unconstitutional and invalid.

They are asking the judge to disqualify Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, and Nathan Wade from prosecuting the case.

In a statement to CBS News, the District Attorney’s Office said it would respond to the allegations only through court filings.
