BREAKING: Nathan Wade falls on sword, resigns from Fani Willis' Trump RICO case in Georgia

Nathan Wade submitted his resignation on Friday.

Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor who was employed by Fani Willis in the Trump Georgia case, has resigned after a judge ruled either Willis or him had to recuse themselves from the case. 

"I hereby offer my resignation, effective immediately, as Special Prosecutor for the Fulton County District Attorney's office," Wade wrote in the resignation. 

Wade wrote that he was “proud of the work” the team accomplished in the case and that he was “seeking justice for the people of Georgia and the United States” by helping to prosecute the former president. 

He added that he enjoyed “being part of the effort to ensure that the rule of law and democracy are preserved” calling the case the “honor of a lifetime.” 

In making the decision to rule out Wade or Willis, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee wrote that there was an "appearance of impropriety" brought about by Willis's romantic relationship with special prosecutor.

Additionally, McAfee wrote that there was no “actual conflict” that could be addressed by the courts with regards to the relationship. 

"The other alleged grounds for disqualification, including forensic misconduct, are also denied. However, the established record now highlights a significant appearance of impropriety that infects the current structure of the prosecution team - an appearance that must be removed through the State’s selection of one of two options. The Defendants’ motions are therefore granted in part," the judge added in the 23-page ruling. 

The ruling comes after Michael Roman, one of the co-defendants in the Georgia election case brought by Willis against former President Trump, brought forth a motion to disqualify Willis because of the relationship.

The defendants alleged that Willis had benefited financially by hiring Wade.  

Wade was paid much more than other special prosecutors in Georgia, and Willis and Wade would go on vacations with each other.
