Trump Gets Huge News After Key Prosecutor RESIGNS From His Case

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor assigned to DA Fani Willis’ election meddling investigation, has concluded his work with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

Wade submitted a letter apologizing for his resignation this afternoon, stressing his dedication to democracy and a speedy conclusion to the case. “Even though the court determined that ‘the defendants did not fulfill their obligation to demonstrate that the District Attorney obtained a real conflict of interest,’ I am submitting my resignation in the service of democracy, to the people of the United States, and to expedite this case,” Wade wrote.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis responded by commending Wade for his bravery in taking on the probe. Willis stated in her acceptance letter, “It is something I will always remember and will remind everyone of: the courage you showed in taking on the investigation and prosecution of the allegations that the defendants in this case engaged in a conspiracy to overturn Georgia’s 2020 presidential election.”

The dramatic change follows Judge McAfee’s order permitting Willis to remain on the job solely in the event that Wade resigns over apparent misconduct on the prosecution team:

In his attempt to find a middle ground, McAfee wrote that his decision was premised on the idea that “disqualification of a constitutional officer [is not] necessary when a less drastic and sufficiently remedial option is available.” However, he added it is obvious “that the prosecution of this case cannot proceed until the State selects one of two options.” Either “the District Attorney may choose to step aside, along with the whole of her office” or “Wade can withdraw” allowing the case to proceed without further distraction.

Without holding back, McAfee criticized Willis for what he considered to be a “tremendous” error in judgment and questioned the accuracy of the testimony regarding Willis and Wade’s friendship.

Trump’s legal team and the attorneys for the other defendants had claimed that Wade had received large payments from Willis for his services, and that Wade had paid for their combined vacation expenses in return.

Michael Roman, a co-defendant of Trump, filed a motion that brought the Willis-Wade case to light first. The motion sought to throw out the indictment and remove Wade, Willis, and their group from any further prosecution of the matter.
