Nathan Wade, the lead prosecutor on the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump, has resigned.

Wade bowed out from the case a few hours after Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee issued a scathing ruling that demanded either he or district attorney Fani Willis had to go after their romance complicated the case.

“I am proud of the work our team has accomplished in investigating, indicting, and litigating this case,” Wade wrote in his resignation letter to Willis.

“Seeking justice for the people of Georgia and the United States, and being part of the effort to ensure that the rule of law and democracy are preserved, has been the honor of a lifetime,” he added.

Trump reacted on Truth Social, writing: “Fani Willis lover, Mr. Nathan Wade Esq., has just resigned in disgrace.”

He then claimed the case had been set up by Joe Biden and his “Department of Injustice” to persecute him for “Election Interference and living the life of the Rich & Famous.”

Willis accepted Wade’s resignation, and heaped praise on him in her own statement, saying she will always remember how he was “brave enough to step forward and take on” the election interference case.  (Read more: The New York Post, 3/15/2024)  (Archive)
