Jim Jordan begins an investigation against the alleged partner of prosecutor Willis: They accuse him of charging $650,000 to incriminate Trump

The House representative asked Nathan Wade to provide invoices related to expenses linked to the case against the former president.

Jim Jordan, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, launched an investigation into special prosecutor Nathan Wade, in charge of the case against Donald Trump in Georgia, following allegations that he benefited financially from a clandestine relationship with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

This Friday, Jordan sent a letter to Wade's attorney expressing concerns about thousands of dollars allegedly paid to his client for his role in the case against Trump. "According to a recent court filing, you have been paid more than $650,000 to serve as an 'Attorney Consultant' and later a 'Special Assistant District Attorney' in the unprecedented investigation and prosecution of the former President and other former federal officials," Jordan wrote in the letter.

The representative explained that the committee is aware that the FCDAO (Fulton County District Attorney's Office) received approximately $14.6 million in grant funds from the Department of Justice between 2020 and 2023 and that "given the enormous legal fees" that Wade billed, questions now arise "about whether federal funds were used by the FCDAO to finance your prosecution," the letter states.

Given the doubts, Jordan requested invoices for expenses related to the case against Trump that would help clarify concerns about the handling of funds and impartiality in the investigation of former President Trump. The representative set January 26 as the deadline for Nathan Wade to present all documents related to the case to the Judiciary Committee.

The clandestine relationship

Michael Roman, one of the co-defendants in the case of alleged 2020 election interference, was the one who recently claimed that Wade and Willis "have been engaged in an improper, clandestine personal relationship during the pendency of this case," which allowed both prosecutors to allegedly benefit financially from taxpayers.

According to Roman, during the relationship, Willis hired Wade to work on the case against Trump and paid him almost $654,000 in legal fees that would have been used to pay for vacations as a couple.
