Fani Willis has responded to Rep. Jim Jordan's warning that she may be held in contempt for failing to provide subpoenaed documents by suggesting that the House Judiciary Committee's investigation into the Fulton County district attorney's office was "politically motivated."

She called the committee's deadlines "unreasonable," and claimed that Jordan was simply trying to "derail" her office's efforts to properly conduct Donald Trump's Georgia election interference case.

"I categorically reject the assertion that this office is deficient in responding to the Committee's subpoena," Willis wrote, explaining that she had already provided "substantial information" about programs funded by federal grants and was in the process of "producing relevant documents" on a "rolling basis."

She suggested that the committee's demands, which included providing five categories of documents collected over a four-year period in less than two months were "unreasonable and uncustomary," and would "divert resources from our primary purpose of prosecuting crime."

"While we are abiding by your subpoena in good faith and with due diligence, we will not divert resources that undermine our duty to the people of Fulton County," she continued. " We will not shut down this office's efforts to prosecute crime – including gang activity, acts of violence and public corruption – to meet unreasonable deadlines in your politically motivated 'investigation' of this office."

Willis concluded by noting that over the past few months, she, her staff, and her family had been "threatened repeatedly by people making violent, often racist, attacks," and that neither them, nor the committee, would deter her.

In his March 14 letter to Willis, Jordan gave her until March 28 to produce all the documents in question.

"If you fail to do so," he warned, "the Committee will consider taking further action, such as the invocation of contempt of Congress proceedings."
