Georgia Senate Investigators Suggest Fani Willis to Be Subpoenaed

Fulton County’s anti-Trump Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis may be facing a subpoena from a Georgia Senate inquiry, investigators have suggested.

Willis is the prosecutor leading a 2020 election interference case against President Donald Trump and his allies.

However, she may be about to get subpoenaed as part of a state-level investigation.

State Sen. Bill Cowsert, a Republican leading the special committee investigating the DA, hinted that Willis may be dragged before the Georgia Senate.

According to local NBC affiliate WXIA-TV, Cowsert said a subpoena may be necessary if Willis does not accept an invitation to appear before the panel.

“She’s a key part of the investigation and her viewpoints are valued by us,” Cowsert said.

“We need to hear what she has to say and her explanation and what she thinks the appropriate rules ought to be going forward so that we don’t have this kind of scandal giving Georgia a black eye in the future.”

The GOP-led special committee is probing the use of state funds arising from the controversy over Willis’s romantic relationship with the special prosecutor she hired for the 2020 election case.

Upon its conclusion, the committee is expected to submit a report with recommendations.

In March, a judge allowed Willis to press forward with the case on the condition that her lover and fellow prosecutor, Nathan Wade, was pulled from the case.

The judge also offered another option: for Willis to step down.

After the defense sought a review, Willis requested an appeals court uphold the ruling.

Before the Senate special panel held its third meeting on Friday to hear testimony from Fulton County Chairman Robb Pitts and others, Willis criticized the GOP-led investigation while at a community event.

“Isn’t it interesting when we’ve got a bunch of African American DAs, now we need daddy to tell us what to do,” she said.

Willis, who is black, is already facing a threat of being held in contempt of Congress over a subpoena seeking records.

It comes after the Washington Free Beacon published audio of an employee telling her about the potential misuse of federal funds weeks before the worker was fired.

The DA has rejected suggestions of wrongdoing.

In response to House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Willis rejected the notion that she defied the subpoena while saying she was still providing documents.

Willis recently skipped a debate, leaving her challenger for the Democratic Party’s nomination in the DA race, attorney Christian Wise Smith, to face off against an empty podium.

Her office declined the invitation, citing concerns about Willis being limited in what she could say regarding ongoing litigation.

The primary is set for May 21.

As Trump seeks a second White House term, the 45th president has broadly denied wrongdoing across multiple cases, including the one led by Willis.

Trump notes that prosecutors, all of whom are Democrats, are engaged in a politically motivated “witch hunt” against him.
