D.A. In Young Thug & Donald Trump Case Allegedly Had An Affair With Prosecutor
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is prosecuting Young Thug, is facing another call for her to be removed from Georgia's election interference case against former President Donald Trump. The demands stem from allegations she had an affair with Nathan Wade, a special prosecutor she hired in the case. Willis and Wade have admitted to having had a romantic relationship but deny it caused a conflict of interest.
In a new filing, lawyers for former state GOP chair and Trump co-defendant David Shafer brought up a speech she made in January referencing Wade. Willis noted that Wade, who is Black, is the only one of her special prosecutors facing backlash, while the other two on the case are white. "The obvious intent of her remarks was to inject and infect the jury pool in Fulton County with unfounded allegations that anyone who dares question her or Mr. Wade's conduct must have done so for racist purposes," the motion argues. "These comments constitute prosecutorial, forensic misconduct and warrant her removal and that of her office from the prosecution of this case."

Willis previously admitted to the "personal relationship" with Wade in an affidavit but claimed it began in 2022, after his appointment in the case. Her office said she "has no financial conflict of interest that constitutes a legal basis for disqualification," and "has no personal conflict of interest that justifies her disqualification personally or that of the Fulton County District Attorney's Office."
