Key Fani Willis ally calls for her 'lover' to step down as Trump prosecutor

Norm Eisen served as special counsel in Congress for the first Trump impeachment.


A key ally to District Attorney Fani Willis in the Georgia election case against former President Donald Trump suggested that her alleged lover and fellow prosecutor, Nathan Wade, should step away from the case.

Norm Eisen, who also served as special counsel in Congress for the first impeachment of Trump, said on Saturday that controversy surrounding, Nathan Wade, has made it such that he should step away from the case.

Eisen said of the case against the former president's case, “The evidence is strong. The case is powerful. It’s very likely to lead to conviction. And we mustn’t lose time on the calendar given the paramount public interest in bringing that strong case to a speedy conclusion.”

The comments came after co-defendant to Trump, Mike Roman, filed a motion to disqualify Willis and Wade in the case.

“If he were to come to me as ethics czar, as so many people did during my government tenure and since, I would tell him that no matter the law discretion is the better course of valor,” Eisen said.

Eisen's comments is a first instance of one of Willis' allies conceding that the drama surrounding her relationship with Wade may hurt the case against Trump in the public eye.

Although he made the concession, Eisen later on said that he did not think that the relationship posed a conflict of interests for Willis, but that it would be breaking the Fulton County ethics policies calling it "not wise."

It has been revealed that Wade bought tickets under Willis' name in April 2023 with a destination to San Francisco. Another set of tickets were bought in October 2022 with the destination being Miami.

Wade was paid nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022 as a result of working in the case.
