DA Fani Willis defends herself, says she is ‘not embarrassed’ about relationship scandal with Nathan Wade

"I don't feel like my reputation needs to be reclaimed," Willis said. "Let's say it for the record, I'm not embarrassed by anything that I've done."


Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis spoke out in a Saturday interview about the recent scandal with Nathan Wade, asserting that her criminal prosecution against former President Trump will proceed despite the controversy, stating she is "not embarrassed" by her actions. 

"I don't feel like we've been slowed down at all," Willis stated during a CNN appearance. "I don't feel like my reputation needs to be reclaimed. Let's say it for the record, I'm not embarrassed by anything that I've done." 

Addressing her revealed relationship with prosecutor Nathan Wade for the first time, Willis maintained that she has not committed any illegal acts, asserting that her "greatest crime" was having a relationship. 

As the Georgia case regarding Trump’s alleged attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election, much attention has now shifted to Willis, prompting her to defend herself.  

The recent scandal emerged following revelations of Willis's romantic involvement with Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor in the case. This prompted Trump's co-defendant, Michael Roman, to argue for Willis's removal from the case citing a financial conflict of interest.  

After this relationship was revealed, Willis admitted to having a "personal relationship" with Wade but stated that there was no financial interest for either herself or Wade. However, it was also revealed that Wade was being paid much more than other state prosecutors. 

In response, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee ruled last week that Willis should not be disqualified from the Georgia election case against Trump, citing the lack of proof of an "actual conflict of interest.” However, McAfee stipulated that either Willis or Wade should recuse themselves, resulting in Wade's resignation immediately following the ruling. 

Willis has referred to these series of events as “efforts to slow down the train” of prosecution but attempted to reassure the public that “the train is coming” for former President Trump.

["... I'm not embarrassed by anything that I've done." ] Of course not. Leftists have no sense of shame or conscience.
