Big Trouble for Fulton County D.A.

Posted on | January 10, 2024 | Comments Off on Big Trouble for Fulton County D.A.

If anyone in the Atlanta area saw a mushroom cloud Monday, don’t be alarmed. It was just the RICO case against Trump exploding:

District Attorney Fani Willis improperly hired an alleged romantic partner to prosecute Donald Trump and financially benefited from their relationship, according to a court motion filed Monday which argued the criminal charges in the case were unconstitutional.
The bombshell public filing alleged that special prosecutor Nathan Wade, a private attorney, paid for lavish vacations he took with Willis using the Fulton County funds his law firm received. County records show that Wade, who has played a prominent role in the election interference case, has been paid nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022. The DA authorizes his compensation.
The motion, filed on behalf of defendant Michael Roman, a former Trump campaign official, seeks to have the charges against Roman dismissed and for Willis, Wade and the entire DA’s office to be disqualified from further prosecution of the case. . . .
Roman’s lawyer, Ashleigh Merchant, said she reviewed the case file in Wade’s ongoing divorce proceedings at the Superior Court Clerk’s Office and made copies of certain documents. But the case file was later improperly sealed because no court hearing was held as required by law, the motion said. . . .
The filing alleges that Willis and Wade have been involved in a romantic relationship that began before Wade was appointed special prosecutor. It says they traveled together to Napa Valley and Florida, and they cruised the Caribbean together using tickets Wade purchased from Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise lines — although the filing did not include documentation of those purchases.
The motion said the checks sent to Wade from Fulton County and his subsequent purchase of vacations for Willis could amount to honest services fraud, a federal crime in which a vendor gives kickbacks to an employer. It is also possible this could be prosecuted under the federal racketeering statute, the motion said. . . .
Willis and Wade, the motion contends, “have been engaged in an improper, clandestine personal relationship during the pendency of this case, which has resulted in the special prosecutor, and, in turn, the district attorney, profiting significantly from this prosecution at the expense of the taxpayers.”
A problem with Wade’s appointment is that it was not approved by the Fulton board of commissioners as required by law, the motion said. The motion also questions Wade’s credentials, contending he has never prosecuted a felony case. . . .
Wade entered into his special prosecutor contract on Nov. 1, 2021, just one day before he filed for divorce in Cobb County, the motion said.

Do you remember the media hype around this Atlanta grand jury indictment? Do you remember how excited liberals were that a BLACK WOMAN was going to be prosecuting Trump? Oh, symbolic justice!

Sensible people, including attorneys of vast experience, looked at this case and saw a lot of obvious problems. Like, RICO? Are you kidding me with this? A presidential campaign trying to win a disputed election result is racketeering? All of these common-sense objections to the Fulton County case were ignored by the national media who were certain — as they had often claimed before — that this time, the “walls were closing in” on Trump. Because a BLACK WOMAN was prosecuting him!

Well, that’s really working out great for them, huh? Not only is this revelation about Willis and Wade’s “improper relationship” likely to cause the RICO prosecution to be abandoned, but it bids fair to get Willis driven out of office, disbarred and perhaps even sent to federal prison.

Has irony ever been more delicious?
