House Republicans Launch Investigation into Georgia DA’s Attorney Amid Allegations of Affair and Inappropriate Billing

House Republicans Initiate Inquiry into Georgia DA’s Attorney Over Affair Allegations

The House Judiciary Committee has launched an investigation into the conduct of attorney Nathan Wade, who was hired by Georgia DA Fani Willis to lead the indictment against Donald Trump.

The committee, in a letter to Wade, has requested documents related to his work on the Trump case, raising concerns over payments exceeding $650,000 at a rate of $250 per hour.

Wade’s Unusual Role as an ‘Anti-Corruption Special Prosecutor’

Wade, initially hired as an ‘anti-corruption special prosecutor’ to investigate Trump’s alleged election interference, is now under scrutiny as the committee questions his qualifications.

A new court filing by Michael Roman, a co-defendant in the ‘fake electors scheme,’ alleges that Wade had no prior experience handling a felony trial.

Potential Misuse of Federal Funds and Enormous Legal Fees

The committee asserts jurisdiction based on the possibility of federal funds being used to pay Wade’s exorbitant fees.

Notably, the court document highlights the ‘enormous legal fees’ billed by Wade, pointing to instances such as billing for 24 hours of work in a single day on November 5, 2021.

The committee raises concerns about the financial benefits received by both Wade and DA Fani Willis.

Affair Allegations and Potential Conflict of Interest

The court document, released on Monday, alleges a romantic relationship between DA Fani Willis and attorney Nathan Wade, predating his hiring for the Trump case.

While unproven, the potential conflict of interest arises as Willis hired her alleged boyfriend despite his lack of expertise in leading the prosecution.

Insights into Wade’s Meetings at the Biden White House

Recent revelations include Wade’s two meetings at the Biden White House ahead of the Trump prosecution.

DailyMail.com’s review of documents, including Wade’s invoices, exposed billings for meetings such as an ‘interview with DC/White House’ and a ‘conference with White House Counsel.’

Legal Challenges to Wade’s Qualifications and Relationship Revelations

Michael Roman, facing charges in the ‘fake electors’ scheme, claims that Wade does not meet the qualifications to serve as a court-appointed defense lawyer in the Trump case.

The filing mentions an alleged ongoing personal relationship between Wade and DA Fani Willis, citing sources close to both.

Committee Seeks Comprehensive Information

The House Judiciary Committee’s letter requests a range of documents, including communications between Wade and various entities, such as the White House Counsel’s office, Department of Justice, and the January 6 Committee.

It also seeks invoices, credit card statements, and financial arrangements related to the Trump investigation by January 26.
