Whistleblowers Ready to Testify Against DA Fani Willis

(DailyVantage.com) – If Republicans in the Georgia state Senate are right, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis may find herself on the wrong side of the law. GOP lawmakers in the state say that they have several witnesses from the Fulton County District Attorney’s office who are ready to testify on Willis’ alleged misconduct while in office.

According to state Senator Bill Cowsert, multiple whistleblowers who worked for Willis say that the Fulton County DA misused federal and state funds. As such, Cowsert has initiated an investigation into the claims, which will be handled by the state Senate’s Special Committee on Investigations.

While Willis is heading the prosecution of former president Donald Trump over allegations that the latter attempted to influence the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state, Cowsert said that the Senate investigation is a completely different issue.

“This is a quest for the truth,” the state senator said. Cowsert also said that he had yet to interview the witnesses, but gave assurances that “there are people that have information they want to share with us.”

The investigation comes on the heels of a recent confession by Willis that she had a relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, a liaison viewed by her detractors as inappropriate. Willis enlisted Wade to help with the prosecution of the former president, and according to Trump co-defendant Michael Roman, who filed court documents pertaining to the relationship, said the personal trysting of Willis and Wade created a conflict of interest.

Roman’s filing also alleges that Willis personally gained from the relationship in the form of luxury trips she and Wade took using funds paid by the Fulton County DA’s office to Wade’s law firm. Trump’s legal team has doubled down on the claims of impropriety against Willis, saying that her behavior warrants a complete dismissal of the Georgia indictment against the former chief executive.
