Scandal Rocks Georgia: Special Prosecutor Denies Delays in Trump Election Case Due to Romance

Special prosecutor Nathan Wade insists his romantic relationship with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis did not delay the election interference case against former President Donald Trump. In an interview with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, Wade described the timing of the relationship as “bad” but denied any negative impact on the case.

“I’m very proud of the things we were able to accomplish under my leadership,” Wade said. “I would never have done anything I thought would jeopardize that hard work.”

Wade resigned from the case in April after Fulton Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee ruled Willis could continue prosecuting Trump only if Wade stepped down. Wade complied within hours of the ruling.

Blaming Trump’s defense team for the delays, Wade stated, “It’s an interesting trial strategy to attempt to defend your client by attacking the prosecutors involved.”

Initially, Willis aimed to bring the case to trial by this summer. However, legal challenges over the defense’s motion to remove Willis due to her relationship with Wade have dragged on, making it unlikely the trial will start before the 2024 election.

The Georgia Court of Appeals recently paused the case pending Trump’s appeal of McAfee’s ruling allowing Willis to stay on. Wade believes the trial can proceed after the election, even if Trump wins.

During the interview, Wade deflected questions about the specifics of his relationship with Willis, referring Collins to previous court testimonies instead. Wade confirmed he and Willis remain friends and continue to face death threats related to the case.
