Trump’s Co-Defendant Submits Another Argument Seeking Fani Willis’ Disqualification

by | Feb 14, 2024

A co-defendant involved in the election interference case against Trump has submitted further evidence to bolster the claim that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her partner Nathan Wade should be barred from prosecuting Trump and 18 other co-defendants.

The motion to disqualify Willis received additional court filings on Tuesday from David Shafer, a former state Republican Party chairman who has been accused of racketeering in connection with his efforts during the 2020 election.

Wade, the Georgia case's special prosecutor, is charged in the new filing with lying during his divorce proceedings. It provided the court with proof that he had revised his responses to two inquiries about whether a person other than his spouse had sexual relations with him while they were married and whether or not they may have entertained someone of the other sex during that time, excluding his ex-wife.

The recent submission alleges that Wade, serving as a special prosecutor in the Georgia case, provided false information during his divorce proceedings. It provided the court with proof that he had revised his responses to two inquiries about whether a person other than his spouse had sexual relations with him while they were married and whether or not they may have entertained someone of the other sex during that time, excluding his ex-wife.

According to the documents Shafer presented, Wade answered “none “to both questions on May 30, 2023, but updated those responses last month after it was revealed that he and Willis had an “improper relationship.” The Plaintiff declines to respond to this interrogation and asserts his privilege in accordance with O. C. G. A. Sec., he said in response. 24 5 505 “.
