Fani Willis Says She Doesn’t Regret Affair with Nathan Wade

( – Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has stood firm behind her decision to pursue a relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, saying that she is “not embarrassed” at all by her conduct.

She also asserted that the state of Georgia’s indictment of former president Donald Trump over allegations of election interference has not “slowed down at all” as a result of the scandal in her personal life.

The relationship between the two came to light after one of Trump’s co-defendants in the Georgia indictment, Michael Roman, submitted a filing to the court, asking that Willis be removed from the case due to her affair with Wade. Roman also alleged that the relationship provided financial benefits to both of them, creating a conflict of interest. While no real financial interest for Willis was found in connection to her relationship with Wade – and his appointment as special prosecutor for the Trump indictment – it was discovered that Wade was receiving a much higher professional fee than other members of the prosecution team.

After a hearing on the matter, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee ruled that Willis could continue as the lead prosecutor in the case against Trump, but required that either Willis or Wade recuse themselves from the case. Wade did so almost immediately after the ruling was issued.

Willis has scored efforts to damage her reputation by unearthing what should have been private matters, calling them “efforts to slow down the train” against the former president. However, she confidently stated that “the train is coming” for the former commander-in-chief. She also defended her decision to pursue a relationship, saying that she did nothing illegal and even believes that there is no need to “reclaim” her reputation.

“Let’s say it for the record, I’m not embarrassed by anything that I’ve done,” she said.
