Jim Jordan put Fani Willis on notice with this legal demand
Fani Willis’ seat grows hotter by the day.
The Fulton County District Attorney finds herself in the middle of a growing scandal.
And Jim Jordan put Fani Willis on notice with this legal demand.
It’s looking more and more like Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis – and not former President Donald Trump whom she hit with sham charges for contesting the 2020 Election – deserves to be under investigation.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) subpoenaed Willis for documents as part of a growing scandal relating to alleged misuse of federal funds.
Jordan’s latter was “referring or relating to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office’s receipt and use of federal funds” and “referring or relating to any allegations of the misuse of federal funds.”
The letter came after the Washington Free Beacon broke the story of an audio recording of former Fulton County District Attorney’s Office employee Amanda Timpson informing Willis that her aide Michael Cuffee planned to use part of a $488,000 federal grant earmarked for the creation of a Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention to purchase computers, swag and to pay for travel all for personal use.
“He wanted to do things with grants that were impossible, and I kept telling him, like, ‘We can’t do that,'” Timpson said the in November 2021 meeting with Willis. “He told everybody … ‘We’re going to get MacBooks, we’re going to get swag, we’re going to use it for travel.’ I said, ‘You cannot do that, it’s a very, very specific grant.'”
Willis then fired Timpson and had seven armed officers perp walk her out of the building.
Jordan cited this conversation as the basis for demanding Willis turn over documents.
“Instead of using these federal grant funds for the intended purpose of helping at-risk youths, your office sought to use the grant funds to ‘get Macbooks … swag … [and] use it for travel,’” Jordan added. “Moreover, the whistleblower’s direct supervisor stated that these planned expenditures ‘were part of [your] vision.’”
“These allegations raise serious concerns about whether you were appropriately supervising the expenditure of federal grant funding allocated to your office and whether you took actions to conceal your office’s unlawful use of federal funds,” Jordan continued.
Willis was already facing allegations of misuse of state taxpayer funds by hiring her lover Nathan Wade as a special prosecutor in the Trump case.
Records show Wade purchased airline tickets in Willis’ name.
The number of questions Willis has to answer in this scandal keeps growing.
And the damage to her sham indictment against Trump may already prove fatal.
