Willis Claims 'Jesus' Told Her to Prosecute Trump, Attorney Who Blew Whistle on Affair Calls DA 'Insane'

Now it’s just stupid. 

Disgraced Fulton County  District Attorney Fani Willis just keeps digging deeper and deeper. The embattled DA claimed in a January speech that “Jesus” told her to prosecute former President Donald Trump. 

Odd. I wasn’t aware that Jesus is into politics and U.S. presidential elections. I’m also pretty sure Jesus isn’t riddled with Stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Anyway, attorney Ashleigh Merchant – who filed the jaw-dropping motion alleging Willis’s romantic relationship with attorney Nathan Wade, the man she appointed special prosecutor in the RICO case against former President Donald Trump – and other defendants, appeared on “The Megyn Kelly Show” on Tuesday, and blistered Willis, telling Kelly she “still hasn’t gotten over the church remarks.”

When someone says that Jesus himself told them to prosecute this case, how do you defend against that? … That’s insane. I’ve never dealt with that … Nobody says this. This doesn’t happen. People don’t take to the pulpit.

People not named “Fani Willis,” that is, Ms. Merchant.

Willis made the speech in January at Atlanta’s Big Bethel AME Church, predictably playing the race card by claiming the backlash against her and Wade was racially motivated because they’re both black. 

Judge Scott McAfee slammed Willis’ speech in his latest ruling, saying she had been “playing the race card,” and that her comments were “legally improper,” which led him to threaten to gag her from speaking.

Here’s a bit of background:

  • Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Fani Willis is being accused of misusing state and federal funds, and also engaging in an “improper” relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade.
  • Willis admitted to having a “personal relationship” with Wade, but said it didn’t become romantic until after 2022 due to the case against former President Donald Trump.
  • Willis hired Wade to work on the Trump case and paid him $654,000 in 2022, according to Trump co-defendant Michael Roman.
  • Trump and his co-defendants are looking to disqualify Willis from the case and to have all charges, centered around the state’s expansive anti-racketeering RICO law, dismissed.
  • The defense has presented dozens of pings from Wade’s cellphone that placed it at Willis’ rented condo prior to 2022. A former friend of Willis, who owned the condo, has testified that she saw the two of them “hugging” and “kissing” in 2019.
  • On March 15, a judge ruled Willis can stay on and prosecute the Georgia election interference case against Trump and his co-defendants for allegedly trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election — if Wade steps aside.

To no one’s surprise who knows anything about Fani Willis, Merchant told Kelly that the DA has used race as “an issue in discussing her detractors … most of her career,” adding:

She’s known me for 20 years. She knows I’m not racist. She knows that I’m not all of those things. So it did surprise me that she had those personal attacks. 

Ah, but Ms. Merchant, here’s the thing. With Fani Willis and others like her, hatred trumps truth (pun intended) for the disgraced DA.

Merchant also talked with Kelly about witness Terrence Bradley, Wade’s former law partner and one-time divorce attorney, who was aware of Willis’s affair with Wade. Throughout Bradley’s testimony, he repeatedly denied knowledge of the affair, which Merchant said “shocked” shocked her. 

Merchant said it seemed Bradley was trying to protect his law license.

I think [he was] telling me like, ‘I’m sorry, but I’m trying to save my law license here.’ … But it was disappointing because he came to me and he knew my role in the case. He knew that I represented one of the defendants in this case

He knew I represented Mr. Roman and so he came to me and initiated this contact. But I know Terrence, and I knew Terrence, and I very much liked Terrence as a colleague, a professional colleague and a friend. It disappoints me greatly. … I think you could even see my demeanor switch at that point from ‘Hey, Terrence is my friend’ to ‘Terrence is someone who lied to me and is lying on the stand.’

If you saw Bradley’s testimony, you knew he was lying at times and making stuff up on the fly, other times.

The Bottom Line

Willis isn’t the Lone Ranger in the use of race-hustling tactics. 

The list is long, from “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin to MSNBC’s race-baiting hood ornament, Joy Reid, to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and beyond. 

But here’s the thing: Willis is an attorney — and a district attorney, at that. I’m sure she’s taken several professional oaths in which she swore to adhere to “blind justice” and then some. 

To suggest Fani Willis has intentionally failed to uphold her oaths would be one of the understatements of the decade.
