Georgia DA Fani Willis accused of paying expert prosecutor less than Nathan Wade: reports
Georgia DA Fani Willis was accused of paying a prosecutor who specialized in racketeering crimes less than another prosecutor she allegedly had an "improper" relationship with.

Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis, who was recently criticized for allegedly having an "improper" romantic relationship with a prosecutor, is now being accused of paying one of her attorneys $100 less per hour than her alleged lover, Nathan Wade, according to reports.

The New York Post reported that Wade was billing the DA's office $250 per hour in November and December 2021, as he worked on the prosecution against former President Donald Trump, who is accused of election interference in 2020. Court records alleged Wade had no experience in state racketeering law.

But another prosecutor on the team, John Floyd, reportedly has considerable knowledge when it comes to Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) cases.

Floyd billed $150 per hour during the same months Wade billed $250 per hour, according to a contract obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Court documents filed earlier this month say Willis hired special prosecutor Nathan Wade, her alleged partner, to prosecute Trump and benefited financially from the relationship in the form of lavish vacations the two went on using funds his firm received for working the case.

The accusation about the difference in pay comes nearly a week after Trump's co-defendant, Michael Roman, accused Willis and Wade of having an "improper" and "clandestine" affair at the same time appointments were being made for the 2020 election interference case.

Michael Roman was booked into the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta on Friday, Aug. 25, 2023.(Fulton County Sheriff's Office )

Roman was a former official on Trump's 2020 campaign and argued about the integrity of the case being compromised because of the affair, last week in court, asking for the charges against Roman to be dropped.

On Sunday, Willis spoke on the matter at the Big Bethel AME Church in Atlanta, claiming she was called out because she is Black.

"They only attacked one," she said. "First thing they say, 'oh, she's gonna play the race card now.'

"But no God, isn't it them that's playing the race card when they only question one," Willis asked.

While speaking at the church, Willis claimed she treated all three special prosecutors equally, adding she "paid them all the same hourly rate."

According to the Daily Caller, Anna Cross, the third special prosecutor, was paid $250 per hour in 2022.

Fulton County records show Wade has been paid nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022, an amount authorized by the district attorney, or Willis in this case.

The filing also calls for the entire district attorney's office, including Willis and Wade, to be disqualified from prosecuting the case.

Trump was indicted by Willis in August and pleaded not guilty to charges related to allegedly attempting to subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, including violation of Georgia's anti-racketeering law.

Roman, alongside Trump, was hit with a racketeering charge as part of Willis' case and was charged with seven felony counts last August.

The Georgia case is one of four pending against Trump; he also faces charges in New York City, Florida and Washington, D.C.

What was improper was sending him to the White House to talk to Biden. That is corruption.

T he Fulton County prosecutor, who District Attorney Fani Willis allegedly had an "improper"  romantic relationship  with, met with the Biden White House twice last year as he worked to investigate former President Trump's alleged election interference, according to court documents.

But also embedded in the filing are invoices for the Law Offices of Nathan J. Wade. One invoice calls attention for "Fulton County District Attorney’s Office."

Wade billed the county for a May 23, 2022, event described as "Travel to Athens; Conf with White House Counsel." Wade charged $2,000 for eight hours at $250 an hour.

Several months later, Wade billed for "Interview with DC/White House" on Nov. 18, 2022. Wade, again, charged $2,000 for eight hours at $250 an hour, according to the documents.

According to what I read, he met with the White House Counsel and a second time to interview with DC/White House. There's nothing I can find that shows he actually met with Biden. But it definitely seems like an improper relationship in that he has no RICO experience and has billed the DA's office for twice the rates that the RICO expert hired for this case has billed at, and has taken Fanni Willis on vacations.

Of course, it is improper. Especially with Biden calling publicly for the prosecution of his opponent.

It's not an improper relationship and has nothing to do with bringing the former 'president' to justice also President Biden has nothing to do with this whatsoever.

Just In: Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia does not support a probe into DA Fani Willis and her behavior. Willis is facing many accusations which prove a clear bias and coordination with the Biden White House to target a political enemy.

I've read several articles from other legal experts and the consensus is that while Fani should remove herself from this case, it does not necessarily mean that the case will be dismissed. However a new DA may not be so quick to keep the RICO charges.  Time will tell.

But I don't understand why Kemp does not support a probe into this. From my readings, it's possible that Fani could be in legal trouble herself as she's the one who hired Nathen Wade and has approved his billings.

Very good sir.


 However a new DA may not be so quick to keep the RICO charges.

True, but this case will now look exactly like what it is: Political lawfare to damage Trump.

I don't get it either.

Of course you don't.  You never will.  He's guilty as sin in all cases and on all counts - no bias involved - truth, facts, and evidence.

When will you be providing any truth, facts, or evidence?

Actually it does. She is a proven criminal and con artist who brought charges that are over the top (RICO- what bullshit) for personal profit of both her lover and herself.

She needs to be charged and stand trial for her criminal acts.

Time for Democrats to find out the laws they flout so easily apply to them as well.
