The ongoing drama surrounding the Trump case in Georgian seems like a soap opera, and surprisingly, it has nothing to do with the former president. Instead, the focus has shifted to the alleged unethical behavior of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her team.

One of the top attorneys working on the case, Nathan Wade, is now facing potential removal due to his involvement in an undisclosed affair with lavish trips supposedly being funded by county dollars. Willis had given Wade’s law firm hundreds of thousands of dollars to investigate Trump, but now it has come to light that there was more to their relationship than just a professional one.


This situation has garnered the attention of the state legislature, which has formed a special committee to investigate Ms. Willis for corruption. Recently, a misconduct hearing was held which turned into a bit of a circus, with Willis showing an unusual level of indignation and being given a lot of leeway by the presiding judge.

As we watch this situation unfold, it’s worth revisiting the pitch that Ms. Willis made to voters during her campaign for District Attorney. She promised a clean and ethical approach to the job, which seemed to strike a chord with voters who ultimately voted her in, ousting the long-term incumbent Paul Howard.

Ironically, it was Howard’s own alleged shady dealings that got him into trouble in 2021, leading to his defeat four years ago. He was under investigation for using grant money from the City of Atlanta for non-profits that he had control over, and even ended up paying a state ethics fine for not disclosing his role as CEO for these organizations.

It’s clear that the people were looking for a change in leadership, but now it seems that the new DA might not be much better. Legal analysts from both sides of the political spectrum have criticized Willis’ handling of the case, with even MSNBC commentators calling her testimony during the misconduct hearing a disaster that shredded her credibility.

Of course, there will always be those who will support her, and in this case, it seems like it’s the network she appeared on that is known for its left-leaning bias. Whether she is guilty of the allegations against her or not, it’s evident that this circus of a case is far from over.
