When the news came that Fulton County DA Fani Willis admitted the affair with the man she appointed to be a special prosecutor in the case against former President Donald Trump — but said the affair started after she had hired him — I thought, oh, that’s a bad idea, because if it started before that, there’s going to be evidence of that, it’s going to come out, and she and the case are going to be in even more trouble.

Now comes a bombshell filing in the case from Michael Roman, a former Trump staffer and one of the defendants in the matter, who says he has evidence that disproves that claim.
Roman claimed in a Friday filing that Willis and Wade’s relationship began before the hiring.
In it, his lawyers claim Wade’s former law partner Terrence Bradley will testify their romantic relationship began before he was appointed to prosecute in 2021, according to the Washington Post.
“The romantic relationship between Wade and Willis began prior to Willis being sworn as the district attorney for Fulton County, Georgia in January 2021,” the filing reads.
“Thus, Bradley can confirm that Willis contracted with Wade after Wade and Willis began a romantic relationship, thus rebutting Wade’s claim in his affidavit that they did not start dating until 2022.”

Willis also told the court that they didn’t start their relationship until 2022.
However, Bradley a former friend and business associate of Wade, could “refute that claim” with information proving they were romantically linked as far back as 2020, Roman wrote.
“If, as Bradley confirms, Willis and Wade were in a romantic relationship before she even took office, Wade likely provided Willis with significant other gifts and benefits,” the filing states.
“Of course, the State and Wade have now filed motions to quash Mr. Roman’s lawful subpoenas in an attempt to prevent discovery of these facts.”
Roman is trying to subpoena Willis, Wade, and Bradley to testify on the allegations at the Feb. 15 hearing. The DA’s office has filed a motion to quash the subpoenas to stop them from having to testify.
Roman’s filing also detailed more trips between Willis and Wade, including two previously unknown cruises to the Bahamas and a trip to Belize.
If what she said to the Court turns out to be false regarding the relationship, she could be in big trouble. The Court is going to be looking into the question of the allegations and hear from them how it impacts (or doesn’t) the case.
It sounds like the hearing on the 15th that will address some of the issues will be a barnburner.
