Fani Willis, the Fulton County, Georgia DA whose personal life has completely upstaged the impact of her election interference case against Donald Trump, has admitted to having a “personal relationship” with a prosecutor she hired to go after the former president – Nathan Wade, the NY Times reports.

The admission came almost a month after allegations of an “improper, clandestine personal relationship” between the two surfaced in a motion from one of Mr. Trump’s co-defendants. The motion seeks to disqualify both prosecutors and Ms. Willis’s entire office from handling the case — an effort that, if successful, would likely sow chaos for an unprecedented state criminal prosecution of a former president.

“While the allegations raised in the various motions are salacious and garnered the media attention they were designed to obtain, none provide this Court with any basis upon which to order the relief they seek,” Ms. Willis’s filing said, adding that “the personal relationship between” Ms. Willis and the prosecutor, Nathan J. Wade, “has never involved direct or indirect financial benefit” to Ms. Willis.

Are free tickets to Napa, Florida, and the Caribbean considered an indirect financial benefit? Because according to records filed in the Wade divorce, Wade bought tickets for he and Fani to travel on both Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise lines.

Willis has claimed in a Friday filing that her relationship with Wade the personal relationship started after she hired Wade (who divorced his wife the next day). This was in response to an accusation by former Trump campaign official Michael Roman, who alleged that Willis had hired her “boyfriend” as a special prosecutor – hooking him up with lucrative contracts despite his lack of qualifications, and then benefited from the aforementioned vacations.

Willis, however, claims that “financial responsibility for personal travel taken is divided roughly evenly,” language that Wade echoed in an affidavit, which added that Willis “received no funds or personal financial gain from my position as Special Prosecutor.”

Let’s see what Wade’s wife has to say about all that… if she can.
