Nathan Wade steps down after judge rules Fani Willis can only remain on Trump election case if 'lover' prosecutor resigns | 15 March 2024 | Fani Willis's "lover" prosecutor Nathan Wade has dramatically stepped down from his role as lead prosecutor in Donald Trump's election interference case in Georgia after a judge's ruling earlier today. Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, escaped with a slap on the wrist as the judge decided she could stay on the case. But the judge said she could only do so if Wade removed himself to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest. Wade's resignation letter was addressed to Willis, his now former boss, who accepted it. Former President Donald Trump was unpersuaded by Wade's public appeals to democracy and the rule of law, after hearings that took the spotlight off his alleged conspiracy to overturn the election results and focused on sensational revelations about the office romance. "The Fani Willis lover, Mr. Nathan Wade Esq., has just resigned in disgrace, as per his and her reading of the Judge's Order today," Trump posted on his Truth Social network, before poking at Wade, Willis, and January 6 Special Counsel Jack Smith.
