Nathan Wade Discusses Trump Criticism and Georgia Election Interference Case

 May 23, 2024

Once a key figure in the Georgia election interference case, Nathan Wade has recently countered attacks from former President Donald Trump.

Nathan Wade assured in an interview that he and Willis remain close and communicate regularly, stating that a "day of reckoning is coming" regarding the Georgia case.

Fox News reported that he offered insights into the intense legal battles and addressed allegations about his personal and professional life.

The Onset of a Tense Legal Battle

On May 22, Nathan Wade appeared on MSNBC talking with Joy Reid. During this interaction, Wade responded to Trump's attacks and insinuations about an inappropriate relationship between Wade and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. Trump had derogatorily referred to Willis as "Fani Wade" during these attacks, questioning her professionalism.

The legal scrutiny circles around Trump’s actions during the Georgia election. Nathan Wade emphasized the gravity of the situation by stating, "The day of reckoning is coming," hinting at the significant proceedings likely to unfold in the courtroom soon.

Wade's involvement in the case came into the limelight again when he resigned following a decision by Judge Scott McAfee. The judge’s ruling required either Willis or Wade to step aside due to their acknowledged romantic involvement, which started in 2022 and concluded in the summer of 2023.

Wade and Willis: Professional and Personal Overlaps

Despite his resignation from the case, Wade supported Willis during her victory celebration after her Democratic primary win for Fulton County DA. Wade's ongoing relationship with Willis, which has evolved from professional collaboration to personal support, underscores their emotional and psychological challenges amid their high-profile legal careers.

Nathan Wade shared a poignant reflection on the nature of workplace relationships, "Workplace romances are as American as apple pie... It happens to everyone. But it happened to the two of us." This statement came when their personal lives came under public scrutiny.

During their professional interaction related to the Trump case, Wade affirmed that their discussions were strictly business-centric. However, as pressures mounted, the nature of their conversations shifted. Wade elaborates on this shift:

During the prosecution, when I was part of the team, we talked all the time, but we talked about the case. It was about business. Now there has been a shift in the communication, and it is more about, ‘Hey, how are you handling the pressure’ or 'Is your family okay?'

Uncertain Timelines and Continued Allegations

The timeline for the trial remains uncertain, with Wade expressing doubts about whether the case would be heard before the upcoming election. He noted, "I do not believe that it'll go before the election, the court of appeals, they have a job to do when that'll happen I don't know." Wade estimates the unpredictability of the judicial process but stays resolved despite the personal and professional accusations stirred up by the former president’s comments.

Fani Willis plays a key role in the high-profile case, State of Georgia v. Donald John Trump, attending a significant court hearing on March 1, 2024. Although Willis and Nathan Wade ended their romantic relationship, they have sustained a supportive friendship amidst challenging circumstances.

Their story highlights the challenges of maintaining personal integrity and professional responsibilities, especially in legal cases involving prominent political figures. It continues to prompt discussions on balancing personal and professional life in public roles.
