Trump calls for the case against him to be closed after Fani Willis' admission about the affair with her colleague: 'This scam is totally discredited'

“By going after the most high level person, she was able to get her 'lover' much more money," said the former president.

Former President Donald Trump is calling for the criminal election interference case against him to be closed after Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis admitted she had an intimate relationship with the case's lead prosecutor, Nathan Wade.

The leading Republican presidential candidate used his Truth Social account to address the relationship between Willis and Wade, pointing out that this poses a conflict of interest, which should be reason enough for his case to be dropped.

In his post, Trump claims that Willis, in consultation with the White House and the Department of Justice, appointed the lead prosecutor to go after him. But it also suggests that by focusing on a high-ranking figure, both she and Wade reaped greater financial benefits. "By going after the most high level person, she was able to get her 'lover' much more money, almost a Million Dollars, than she would be able to get for the prosecution of any other person or individual. That means that this scam is totally discredited and over!" he said.

Wade's suspicious hiring

Willis reportedly hired Wade while they were in a relationship and has since paid him more than $650,000 in legal fees to serve as a consulting attorney and as special assistant district attorney for the unprecedented investigation and prosecution of Trump.

As a result of all this information, the Georgia Senate approved the creation of a committee to investigate whether Willis and Wade benefited from the charges against Trump at the expense of taxpayers.

House Judiciary Committee subpoenas Willis

The Fulton County district attorney is also facing charges for alleged irregular use of a nearly $500,000 federal grant. In fact, this Friday, Congressman Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, summoned Willis to testify about public complaints about the misuse of federal funds.
