Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis faces accusations of lying about the timing of her alleged romantic relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade.

The allegations, made by a co-defendant in the Georgia election interference case against former President Trump, claim that the affair began before Wade was appointed as a special prosecutor.

“Willis and Wade claim they did not have a personal, romantic relationship before Willis appointed Wade as a special prosecutor, but Terrence Bradley (“Bradley”) will refute that claim,” attorney Ashleigh Merchant wrote.

The court filing also alleges financial benefits and lavish vacations resulting from the relationship.

“Bradley can confirm that Willis contracted with Wade after Wade and Willis began a romantic relationship, thus rebutting Wade’s claim in his affidavit that they did not start dating until 2022,” the filing reads.

“Bradley also has personal knowledge that Wade and Willis regularly stayed together at her home until Willis’ father moved into her home sometime in 2020,” Merchant wrote.

Willis has responded, admitting to a “personal” relationship with Wade but denying any conflict of interest.

These developments come amid calls for Willis’ disqualification from the case and accusations of prosecutorial misconduct.

“If, as Bradley confirms, Willis and Wade were in a romantic relationship before she even took office, Wade likely provided Willis with significant other gifts and benefits,” the filing added.

“Of course, the State and Wade have now filed motions to quash Mr. Roman’s lawful subpoenas in an attempt to prevent discovery of these facts.”

“When the lines get blurred between a prosecutor’s interest in her personal fame and publicity and her public duty, the system breaks down, as does the public’s confidence in the process itself, which threatens to undermine the public’s confidence in the outcome,” Merchant wrote.

The situation has been further complicated by ongoing investigations and legal disputes.
