ATLANTA, GEORGIA: In an unprecedented twist to the ongoing criminal racketeering case against Donald Trump, credit card statements obtained in a Friday, January 19, court filing have shed light on the personal relationship between Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her appointed special prosecutor, Nathan Wade.

Allegations of an improper relationship and financial impropriety have emerged, raising serious questions about the integrity of the case.

Credit card statements revealed

Wade, the special prosecutor tasked by Willis to oversee the high-profile case, is facing scrutiny after credit card statements revealed that he had purchased plane tickets for both himself and the District Attorney for joint trips to San Francisco and Miami in 2022 and 2023.

These findings were disclosed in a court filing attached to Wade's ongoing divorce case, initiated by his estranged wife, Joycelyn Wade, in Cobb County, Georgia.


Michael Roman, a co-defendant in the Trump case, had earlier levied misconduct accusations, alleging that Willis and Wade were engaged in an "improper, clandestine personal relationship during the pendency of this case, which has resulted in the special prosecutor, and, in turn, the district attorney, profiting significantly from this prosecution at the expense of the taxpayers".

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee has scheduled a hearing on these explosive allegations for February 15.

Call for transparency

Commissioner Bob Ellis, chairman of the county’s audit committee, has taken a proactive stance, expressing his intent to pursue a "full investigation" into the claims of an improper relationship and the potential misuse of public funds.

Ellis stated, "Under no circumstances should an elected official contract with or hire someone who they are in a romantic relationship with."

He added that "accepting favors and extravagant gifts from such contractors should also be considered improper".

In a statement, Ellis called for transparency, addressing a letter to Willis requesting documents related to the appointment of special prosecutors, as well as payment and invoices for special prosecutors’ services dating back to January 1, 2021.

The aim is to scrutinize the entire process surrounding the appointment of Nathan Wade and any potential financial transactions associated with his role.


Willis, in a Thursday filing, responded to accusations from Joycelyn Wade, claiming that the estranged wife was attempting to "harass" and "damage her professional reputation" by subpoenaing her for a deposition in the divorce case.

Willis asserted that the Wades had been living apart since 2021, and their marriage was deemed "irretrievably broken". She maintained that she possessed no information “that might prove relevant to granting or denying the divorce.”

Clashing narratives

Joycelyn Wade presented a contrasting narrative in her filing, alleging that Willis had crucial information about her husband's finances. She disclosed that Nathan Wade filed for divorce on November 2, 2021, just one day after being appointed as a special prosecutor.

According to Joycelyn, she was kept in the dark about the appointment, which resulted in "substantial income" for her husband. The court filing painted a picture of financial strain on Joycelyn Wade, alleging that her husband left her "with little means of financial support while simultaneously spending tens of thousands of dollars per month on a very lavish lifestyle".

“Since Plaintiff filed for divorce, he has taken trips to San Francisco and Napa Valley, to Florida and even gone on Caribbean cruises, enjoyed a trip to Belize, another to the country of Panama and even just last month took a trip to Australia. The evidence is clear that Ms Willis was an intended travel partner for at least some of these trips as indicated by flights he purchased for her to accompany him,” the filing stated.


Roman’s filing also suggested Wade and Willis were in a “romantic relationship." It stated, “Defendant seeks to depose Ms Willis in order to determine details surrounding her romantic affair with Plaintiff, as there appears to be no reasonable explanation for their travels apart from a romantic relationship."

Internet reacts after credit card statements are revealed

Social media erupted with reactions after the credit card statements were revealed.

"There can be no viable explanation for this. It is what it is plain and simple. They should be removed from the case," one posted on X.

"Caught Red Handed! Corrupt Liars," another wrote.

"This whole case is completely falling apart," someone else added.

"Scorned women always have the receipts," another quipped. 





Legal strategy and financial details

Roman's court filing not only alleged an improper relationship but also raised questions about the procedural aspects of Wade's appointment as a special prosecutor.

Invoices attached to Roman's filing disclosed that Wade had been receiving $250 per hour for his work on the case, with his law firm accumulating at least $550,000 since 2022 for their involvement in the sprawling 19-defendant case.

Roman is leveraging the alleged relationship to argue for the disqualification of Willis, Wade, and the entire DA's office from prosecuting the case.

“Instead of handling this case within her office, as she could have done," Willis “chose to hire a private special prosecutor to preside over the case” and used the prosecution “to pay her partner a large sum of money", the filing said.

A Cobb County judge has expedited an emergency hearing to address Willis' attempts to block the subpoena and decide whether to unseal the divorce records in the case, NBC News reported.
