Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley criticized Fani Willis’ handling of a misconduct hearing regarding her election prosecution against Donald Trump.

Turley argued Willis and external prosecutor Nathan Wade, who had a secret romantic relationship, could have filed false statements in court.

He questioned if the judge would refer them to the bar for investigation.

Turley said, “The astonishing thing about this is that you have two prosecutors who stand accused of filing false statements in court.”

“Mr. Wade is accused of answering interrogatories falsely. And Willis is accused of making false statements in her own filings. That’s what they’re prosecuting defendants in the case for,” he explained.

“My question is, will he refer these two to the bar? There are allegations of false statements being filed. Their testimony did not help in that respect. And so will this judge say, ‘Look, I’m going to suggest that one or both of you remove yourselves or maybe even order it, but I am also going to ask the bar to look into these allegations’?” asked Turley.

The hearing explored the financial ties and leisure trips between Willis and Wade amid calls to remove prosecutors from the case due to alleged conflicts.

Judge Scott McAfee warned Willis, “We have to listen to the questions as asked … and if this happens again and again, I’m going to have no choice but to strike your testimony.”

Willis maintained travel costs were split equally but performed poorly under cross-examination, with the judge calling multiple recesses.

Critics argue Willis’ personal connections could compromise her leadership of a high-profile racketeering case against Trump that impacts the 2024 presidential election.
