Top Prosecutor In GA Trump Case Paid For Vacation Flights

By Victor Winston, updated on January 20, 2024

Nathan Wade, the lead prosecutor in the election interference case against former President Donald Trump in Georgia, is facing allegations that could potentially compromise the case's impartiality.

Bank records from Nathan Wade's divorce proceedings have revealed payments for travel involving Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, raising questions about their professional relationship.

Financial Revelations in Divorce Proceedings

During the ongoing divorce case of Nathan Wade, bank statements showing payments for plane tickets for both Wade and Willis have been brought to light.

These tickets were for trips to destinations including Miami and San Francisco during the years 2022-2023. The disclosure of these expenses has stirred controversy, considering Wade's role as the lead prosecutor in a high-profile case.

The travel details were uncovered in a legal filing by the lawyers representing Wade's estranged wife. They have expressed a desire to have Willis testify in the divorce case, a move that Willis has attempted to counteract. Her efforts to quash a subpoena for her deposition have only added to the intrigue surrounding the situation.

The Trump Case and Allegations of Impartiality

In the backdrop of these revelations is the election interference case against former President Donald Trump. Earlier in January, a lawyer representing Mike Roman, a co-defendant in the Trump case, put forth allegations that Willis and Wade were engaged in a romantic relationship. The travel records bolstered this claim, which the lawyer highlighted as proof of their relationship.

The implication of a personal relationship between Willis and Wade has led to arguments that the case against Trump should be dismissed. The lawyer contends that Willis benefits from vacations with Wade, who was appointed as a special prosecutor by her.

Concerns about impartiality in the Trump case are growing amidst these allegations. The situation is further complicated by the fact that Willis has not publicly denied the allegations of an improper relationship with Wade.

In a statement from the divorce case, it was said:

Since Plaintiff filed for divorce, he has taken trips to San Francisco and Napa Valley, to Florida, and even gone on Caribbean cruises, enjoyed a trip to Belize, another to the country of Panama, and even just last month took a trip to Australia. The evidence clearly shows that Ms. Willis was an intended travel partner for at least some of these trips, as indicated by the flights he purchased for her to accompany him.

The statement points to a pattern of travel and expenditure that intertwines the personal and professional lives of Willis and Wade.

Unraveling the Personal and Professional

Further complicating matters is the stance of Wade's wife. In the latest filing, she stated that her intention was not to obstruct the Trump case but to seek clarity on Wade's financial dealings and his relationship with Willis.

The lawyers for Wade's wife argued:

Contrary to Ms. Willis’s belief, Defendant is not utilizing the deposition to harass her but rather to seek pertinent information from her husband’s paramour regarding her relationship with Plaintiff and the extent of Plaintiff’s financial involvement in the same.

Conclusion

Nathan Wade, the lead prosecutor in the election interference case against former President Donald Trump in Georgia, is embroiled in controversy due to revelations in his ongoing divorce proceedings. Bank records indicate that Wade made payments for travel involving Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, raising questions about their professional and personal relationship.

These expenses for trips to various destinations between 2022 and 2023 have sparked concerns about impartiality in the high-profile Trump case. Allegations of a romantic relationship between Willis and Wade, bolstered by the travel records, have led to calls for the dismissal of the Trump case.

The situation is complicated by Willis's efforts to avoid testifying in the divorce case and her failure to publicly deny the alleged relationship with Wade.
