Fani Willis says she will refuse to testify before Georgia Senate if subpoenaed

“First of all, I don’t even think they have the authority to subpoena me. But they need to learn the law."


Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is currently prosecuting former President Donald Trump in Georgia, may refuse to testify before a state senate committee even if she is served a subpoena.   

As Willis was with a coalition of black clergy who endorsed her re-election campaign on Monday, she took questions from reporters and was asked if she would appear before the senate committee that is currently investigating her. She responded by saying that she did not think a subpoena was lawful.  

“First of all, I don’t even think they have the authority to subpoena me. But they need to learn the law,” Willis said.  

Willis’ recent conduct is under investigation after it was revealed that she had an intimate relationship with former special prosecutor Nathan Wade. The relationship with Wade fueled allegations that Wills as well as the special prosecutor had a financial interest in prosecuting the former president.   

Wade recused himself from the case after being ordered to do so by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAffee. Either Wade or Willis had to step away from the case.  

State Senator Bill Cowsert has indicated that if Willis does not voluntarily appear before the committee, she will be subpoenaed.   

“If she’s not willing to come and explain her conduct, then we will subpoena her and ask her to come, require her to come,” Cowsert said.  

However, Willis has continued to assert her intention to ignore such a request.  

“I will not appear to anything that is unlawful,” she continued. “I have not broken the law in any way. I’ve said it, you know, I’ll say it amongst these leaders, I’m sorry folks get pissed off that everybody gets treated equally."  

When asked by a reporter from WSBTV Channel 2 if she believes the Georgia trial for the former president can begin before the November election, Willis responded by saying that it is up to Judge McAffee’s scheduling to determine when the trial will begin.
