  • Nathan Wade's estranged wife says he’s failed to pay spousal support since resigning from Fani Willis' office

    Fox News ^ | 5/17/24 | Brianna Herlihy, Samantha Daigle
    The estranged wife of ex-special prosecutor Nathan Wade said in a Georgia court filing Friday that Wade claims his resignation from his post at the Fulton County District Attorney's office "constitutes a substantial change in circumstance, rendering him unable to meet his financial obligation" in their divorce proceedings. Wade was hired in 2021 by DA Fani Willis to help prosecute the sweeping election interference case against former President Trump. She was accused by Trump and co-defendants of having an "improper" affair with Wade. On March 15, Wade resigned after a Georgia judge gave Willis an ultimatum of either Willis or...

    State Election Board calls for a monitor in Fulton for this year’s elections.. The State Election Board reprimanded Fulton County and ordered an independent election monitor Tuesday, finding that the county likely scanned over 3,000 ballots twice during the recount of the 2020 presidential election. The decision, on a 2-1 vote, resolves one of the last remaining investigations of the 2020 election, drawing jeers from a crowd of Republican voters who wanted more severe punishment against the Democrat county. The case exposed errors in Fulton’s 2020 recount but didn’t indicate any fraud in the election, which Democrat Joe Biden won...

    A defiant Fani Willis refused to appear before a Georgia state senate investigative committee and afterward claimed they don't have the power to subpoena her as they have threatened. The Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney is prosecuting former President Donald Trump in her election interference case, but her own conduct has increasingly come under the microscope. Not only did she have an affair with Nathan Wade, an attorney who was helping prosecute the case, but now her official spending habits have raised eyebrows as well. Ever since her actions came under scrutiny, she has proven to be hot-tempered, entitled, and...

    Laura Loomer confronted Fani Willis on Friday night at the National Association of Black County Officials (NABCO) in Miami, Florida. Fani was attending the event with her lover and former lead attorney Nathan Wade. The two lovebirds are still traveling together on business/pleasure trips. It’s not clear who’s paying the bills. Willis paid Wade over $653,000 between 2022 and 2023 while the two were dating. Wade was forced to step down from Fani’s case in mid-March against President Trump after the two were caught lying to the court about the timing of their affair. It’s not clear why Wade was...

    Fulton County, Georgia's District Attorney Fani Willis just seems to keep finding trouble. Earlier this past week, we reported new information on the whistleblower who came forward alleging misuse of federal grant funds in Willis' office. Whistleblower Amanda Timpson has said that when she informed Willis about the situation, she was subsequently terminated. In the past week, the DOJ said that they found "inconsistencies" and "reporting discrepancies" in Willis' use of the federal grant money. ... The Justice Department did not provide any further details on the nature of Willis’s reporting "inconsistencies" on the $488,000 federal grant, which was earmarked...

    Fifteen or twenty years ago, and for some years following, there was a great deal of publicity about bee colonies dying out. The cause of the decline was unclear, but most people assumed it was somehow our fault. Where I live, “Save the Bees” signs started cropping up in yards and in front of apartment dwellings, along with “All Are Welcome Here” and “We Believe In Science.” Some people let their lawns go wild, not, as one might suspect, because they were too lazy to mow, but because they hoped a weed-filled lawn would be good habitat for bees. But...

    Judge Scott McAfee said his long-awaited ruling on the effort to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis "should" come out Friday. “I made a promise to everybody. These kind of orders take time to write. I need to make sure I say exactly what I want to, and I plan to stick to the timeline I gave everyone,” McAfee said, according to ABC affiliate WSB who spoke to him Thursday evening. “Should be out tomorrow,” he continued. Attorneys for several defendants have been pushing for the disqualification of Willis from the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald...

    A key witness testified Wednesday morning before the Georgia state Senate's special committee investigating the actions of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis as she seeks to take down former President Donald Trump ahead of Election Day. In front of the Republican-led investigative panel, defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant, who's defending Trump co-defendant Michael Roman in the George election interference case, laid out exactly how she exposed the snowballing FaniGate scandal. Willis stands accused of misusing public funds for personal gain. Merchant alleges that Willis had hired her longtime lover Nathan Wade, a private-practice lawyer with scant prosecutorial experience, to act...

    [...] Confiscated property held by the Fulton County DA's office includes, for example, $150,000 in cash and $1 million worth of jewelry seized from the rapper Young Thug when he was arrested in May 2022 on organized crime charges. Paying lawyers from the forfeited property account would be inappropriate for any district attorney's office. In admitting the clerical error, the spokesman included an email from Willis's chief operation officer, who noted that the expenses document prepared by the Fulton County government "incorrectly states that Invoices 9, 10 and 11 were paid out of a forfeiture account." The chief operating officer...

    Former deputy independent counsel Sol Wisenberg said Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ entire office should be disqualified from the state RICO case against former President Donald Trump. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said Friday he would rule within the next two weeks whether Willis would be disqualified following a hearing during which attorneys for Trump and other defendants outlined their argument for Willis’ removal from the case. Wisenberg said that the evidence against Willis was strong. ... “I think it’s been a very bad week for the Trump-bashers, the get-Trump crowd, and it was a very bad...

    CNN legal analyst Michael Moore on Friday cast doubt on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ Thursday testimony in which she claimed she always reimbursed her romantic partner with cash. Willis testified during a hearing on whether she should be disqualified from her election interference case against former President Donald Trump for improperly benefiting financially from appointing special prosecutor Nathan Wade to the case. They both asserted Willis reimbursed Wade with cash for their vacations and outings, so there was no record of it, which Moore described as “convenient” on “CNN This Morning.” Moore criticized both the defense lawyers and...

    The Fulton County district attorney’s office asked a Georgia judge Wednesday to quash subpoenas of top prosecutors in former President Trump’s 2020 election interference case that would require them to testify at a hearing next week over whether they should be booted from the case. After accusing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) and special prosecutor Nathan Wade of having romantic ties, one of Trump’s co-defendants in Georgia subpoenaed the duo along with more than a half-dozen of their colleagues for the hearing, scheduled for Feb. 15. Both Willis and Wade last week admitted to having a “personal relationship,”...

    Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis defended her decision to fire an employee who blew the whistle on attempted abuse of taxpayer funds in her office, saying in a statement Friday she terminated the whistleblower for poor work performance. But Willis sang a different tune about the whistleblower, former director of juvenile diversion Amanda Timpson, in the months leading up to her abrupt termination in January 2022, emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. Willis sang Timpson’s praises in a staff-wide email on Sept. 9, 2021, saying the whistleblower had a "dynamic" skill set that would serve her well...

    Embattled Georgia DA has a 'pattern' of 'ethical violations, abuse of power' and misusing funds, whistleblower says.. Fani Willis may have fired the employee who warned her about mishandling federal funds. But she didn't deny her allegations. Less than a year into her tenure as Fulton County district attorney, in 2021, Willis met with Amanda Timpson, an employee in the district attorney's office responsible for giving nonviolent juvenile offenders "alternatives to the juvenile court system." During their conversation, a recording of which was reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, Timpson claimed to Willis that she had been demoted after attempting...

    George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said Monday that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis chose “the worst possible tack” when responding to a subpoena in her alleged lover’s divorce case. Willis sought to have the subpoena declared invalid in a Thursday court filing, claiming that Jocelyn Wade, the estranged wife of Nathan Wade, Willis’ alleged lover, was trying to “harass and embarrass” the Fulton County DA. Turley said that Willis and Nathan Wade were “undermining” their case. ... The damage is already done for Willis, and in many ways she’s really magnifying that damage with her moves,” Turley...

    Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis wants to treat her staff to brand new, taxpayer-funded cars as she rides out allegations that she misappropriated county funds to enrich her lover. Willis on Wednesday requested $611,000 from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to purchase up to 16 "pursuit and special service vehicles" for law enforcement and "administrative" purposes. The board voted overwhelmingly to table the request after several commissioners noted Willis provided no justification for the proposed purchase order. The board says it will take up the request after Willis addresses allegations of her affair with special prosecutor Nathan Wade....
