On Tuesday, it was revealed that Nathan Wade, a special prosecutor in the election interference case against Donald Trump in Georgia, had reached a temporary agreement in his divorce case, and will thus not be required to testify in proceedings this week.

Had the agreement not been reached and Wade were to take the stand, he would likely have had to divulge the truth about his highly-publicized alleged affair with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

According to the New York Times, a spokesperson for Andrea Dyer Hastings, the attorney representing Wade's wife, Jocelyn, said following the last-minute decision that the agreement was "temporary," noting that it would be in place "while the final details are worked out."

"While this negates the immediate need for a hearing," Hastings stated, adding that temporary alimony and attorneys fees had been resolved, "it does not settle the case." 

The Wades married in 1997 and have two children together, both of whom are now adults. 

Allegations of Wade and Willis' alleged impropriety were first brought to light in a court filing by Trump co-defendant Michael Roman. His lawyer, Ashleigh Merchant, claimed that Willis and Wade "have been engaged in an improper, clandestine personal relationship during the pendency of this case, which has resulted in the special prosecutor, and, in turn, the district attorney, profiting significantly from this prosecution at the expense of the taxpayers."

Court documents revealed that Wade bought plane tickets to locations such as Miami and San Francisco in Willis' name.

Roman argued that if the allegations that Willis hired her lover to be on the prosecutorial team are true, Willis' conduct could potentially warrant a dismissal of the charges against him and disqualification of the entire DA's office from future prosecution of the case.

While Willis hasn't admitted to anything, she has failed to deny there was something going on between her and Wade. At the Big Bethel AME Church in Atlanta, for example, she claimed that she was a "flawed" and "imperfect" public servant, adding that being DA brought with it "loneliness." While she did not mention Wade by name, she did mention "a great friend and a great lawyer."

She has until Friday, February 2 to respond to Roman's filing, though whether she reveals any new information about the alleged affair remains to be seen.
