Trump RICO defendant says Fani Willis downplayed ‘self-dealing’ with Wade

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis downplayed the alleged “self-dealing” by her and special prosecutor Nathan Wade, according to a court filing Friday by a lawyer for a defendant in former President Donald Trump‘s Georgia election interference case.

Last week, Willis responded for the first time in a motion acknowledging that she and Wade had a personal relationship but argued that they did nothing wrong. But in a Friday evening response filing, co-defendant Mike Roman’s lawyer claimed that one of Wade’s acquaintances can testify that the pair began a romantic relationship earlier than they acknowledged and before she hired him to run the sweeping racketeering investigation.
