House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan and GOP Rep. Barry Loudermilk have initiated an inquiry into Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis over potential collusion with the House select committee that investigated the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incident.

They are seeking documents and communications between Willis’s office and the Jan. 6 panel, concerned about the politically motivated prosecution of former President Donald Trump.

“We are in possession of a letter, dated December 17, 2021, and enclosed herein, from you to Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Chairman of the partisan January 6 Select Committee, requesting access to congressional ‘records that may be relevant to our criminal investigation,’” Jordan wrote.

“Specifically, you asked Rep. Thompson for access to ‘record [sic] includ[ing] but … not limited to recordings and transcripts of witness interviews and depositions, electronic and print records of communications, and records of travel,’” he added.

“You even offered that you and your staff were eager to travel to Washington, D.C, to ‘meet with investigators in person’ and to receive these records ‘any time’ between January 31, 2022, and February 25, 2022.”

“Although it is not clear what records, if any, you obtained from your coordination with the partisan January 6 Select Committee, this new information raises additional questions relevant to the Committee’s oversight of your politically motivated prosecution of a former President of the United States and several former senior federal officials.”

The “partisan January 6 Select Committee had a troubling track record of procedural abuses and due process violations.”

“It only solicited evidence from a select set of relevant individuals, ignored exculpatory evidence, and did not pursue witnesses with evidence that would not advance its partisan narrative,” Jordan said.

“It fabricated and publicly released doctored evidence. It cherrypicked selective information to create false and misleading public narratives.”

“To the extent that your politically motivated prosecutions are now relying in any way on records obtained from the partisan January 6 Select Committee, it only reinforces concerns about your commitment to due process and whether you have fulfilled your obligations to properly disclose this material,” Jordan wrote.

“This new information raises questions about Willis’ and Thompson’s commitment to due process, and whether House Rules were violated when the Select Committee failed to properly disclose this material,” Rep. Barry Loudermilk wrote.

“We have serious concerns about this behavior and we are seeking the truth,” he added.

This is not the first time Jordan has investigated Willis in connection with her case against Trump and others, and the inquiry raises questions about due process and potential House Rules violations.

“Ms. Willis’s indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding her actions raise serious concerns about whether such actions are politically motivated,” the House Judiciary Committee wrote at the time.
