Jordan Threatens Fani Willis With Contempt

Reports reveal Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is embroiled in a controversy. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) threatens to bring contempt of Congress proceedings against her office if she does not cooperate with a subpoena.

Willis has refused to provide documents from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office (FCDAO) about the office’s use of federal monies and claims that these funds were mishandled.  Jordan sent a letter to Willis suggesting the prospect of contempt proceedings.

The FCDAO has delivered no documents or conversations about the subject matter of the subpoena, including discussions about using federal funding and documentation concerning the alleged misappropriation of said funds.

In January, a whistleblower who had attempted to stop the FCDAO from abusing federal grant funds came forward, claiming that Willis’ office had retaliated against her. In a letter sent to the Judiciary Committee last month, Jordan criticized Willis’ office for its harsh remarks about and behavior toward the whistleblower.

In February, the subpoena was issued as part of the Judiciary Committee’s investigation into whether Willis misused government money by appointing her ex-lover, Nathan Wade, to head the RICO prosecution of ex-president Donald Trump and more than a dozen other defendants.

After many hearings regarding whether Willis and Wade told lies about their relationship history, Judge Scott McAfee of the Fulton County Superior Court considered a request to remove Willis from the election interference case. Wade and Willis allegedly spent several nights at her residence in 2021, many months before they declared their relationship started, and lawyers for Trump have shown mobile phone records showing this. According to Willis and Wade, their relationship began after she appointed Wade to handle the alleged election meddling case in November 2021.

Reports show that Judge McAfee recently dismissed six counts from the indictment against Donald Trump and his co-defendants, citing a lack of information that prevented the defense from adequately preparing a case against the allegations. Three of the allegations involve Trump personally, and to restore them, Willis must again present each count to the grand jury.
