Fani Willis

A co-defendant in Donald Trump’s Georgia election interference case, Michael Roman, has made an allegation in a court filing that Fani Willis, the district attorney overseeing the case, is involved in a personal, romantic relationship with one of the lead prosecutors, Nathan Wade. Roman’s attorney is seeking to have charges against him dismissed, claiming that Willis deliberately omitted disclosing the alleged relationship and has personally benefited from Wade’s appointment to the case.

The filing does not present any concrete evidence of the alleged relationship but rather asserts that “sources close to both the special prosecutor and the district attorney have confirmed they had an ongoing, personal relationship.” It further alleges that the purported couple utilized legal fees from the case to finance trips to destinations like Florida, Napa Valley, and a cruise in the Caribbean.
