Democrats are finding out they made a bad bet on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Willis’ criminal case against Donald Trump is now facing intense scrutiny.

And a judge just blindsided Fani Willis with this devastating ruling.

Judge Scott McAfee approved a hearing for arguments on defendant Mark Roman’s motion to disqualify Willis and dismiss the charges in her 2020 Election witch hunt against Donald Trump, Roman along with other Trump aides, lawyers, and supporters.

Roman argued that Willis created a conflict of interest when she hired her lover Nathan Wade onto the case as special prosecutor and that the two allegedly financially enriched themselves through Wade billing Fulton County for $654,000 and then using the money to allegedly pay for the couple’s vacations.

Judge McAfee wrote that the allegations “could result in a disqualification.” 

McAfee added that Willis admitted the affair with Wade but disputed that the two were in a relationship before she brought him on board and that the question to resolve was if the two financially benefited from their arrangement.

“The state has admitted a relationship existed,” McAfee stated. “[W]hat remains to be proven is the existence and extent of any financial benefit, again, if there even was one. So because I think it’s possible that the facts alleged by the defendant could result in disqualification, I think an evidentiary hearing must occur to establish the record on those core allegations.”

“I think the issues that point here are, whether a relationship existed, whether that relationship was romantic or non-romantic in nature, when it formed and whether it continues,” McAfee added. “That’s only relevant because it’s in combination with the question of the existence and extent of any personal benefit.”

Roman’s lawyer intends to call two witnesses who will dispute Willis and Wade’s statement to the court that their relationship only began after he took the position of special prosecutor.

Willis hiring Wade was suspect from the start as he had never worked a felony case.

Bank statements show Wade purchased airline tickets in Willis’ name.

Wade also filed for divorce one day after accepting the position as special prosecutor on the Trump case.

Judge McAfee disqualifying Willis from this case means her whole office is disqualified.

The state would have to find a new prosecutor.

Not only would that mean this case will never go to trial before the November election, but that the charges may go away entirely as no other prosecutor may want to take up this mess of a case.
