Fulton County policy suggests both DA Willis, Wade were required to disclose relationship | 16 Feb 2024 | A Fulton County policy regarding the disclosure of a romantic relationship with an employee may have applied to both District Attorney Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade, yet they testified that they did not inform any county employees of their relationship, according to lawyers observing the case. A hearing was held on Thursday and Friday regarding Willis' relationship with Wade and the resulting potential conflicts of interest regarding the case against former President Donald Trump. Willis last year indicted Trump and 18 co-defendants over his efforts to challenge the 2020 election results in Georgia. She had hired Wade as a special prosecutor to pursue the case. Co-defendant Mike Roman's attorney, Ashleigh Merchant, first raised allegations in January regarding Willis and Wade, claiming the pair "engaged in an improper, clandestine personal relationship" and Wade had profited from the case.
