Jim Jordan Threatens to Hold Get-Trump DA Fani Willis in Contempt

Republican House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has just dropped the hammer on Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

In a Thursday letter, Jordan threatened DA Willis with contempt proceedings.

Willis, a career Democrat, has come under fire over the handling of her politically motivated case against President Donald Trump.

The House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to Willis on February 2 for records pertaining to oversight of her office’s use of federal funds.

The committee ultimately resorted to having a United States Marshal hand-deliver the document when she refused to accept it via email.

Her refusal to still not cooperate prompted Jordan’s Thursday letter.

Willis secured an indictment against Trump and other defendants in August over the 45th president’s efforts to contest the results of the 2020 election in Georgia.

Democrat President Joe Biden allegedly “won” the state by fewer than 12,000 votes.

“The Committee expects that you will produce all responsive documents to the subpoena in the categories prioritized by the Committee no later than 12:00 p.m. on March 28, 2024,” Jordan wrote in the letter to Willis.

“If you fail to do so, the Committee will consider taking further action, such as the invocation of contempt of Congress proceedings.”

Willis’s conduct has drawn scrutiny since attorneys for Michael Roman, a Trump co-defendant, filed a motion for Willis’ disqualification on Jan. 8.

Roman alleged that Willis, who hired Wade as a special prosecutor to help probe and prosecute the former president, was in a romantic relationship with Wade.

Further investigations into the allegations revealed that the claims were true.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said on March 1 that he would rule by Friday whether Willis would be disqualified.

The judge is mulling the case after a hearing that saw attorneys for Trump and other defendants outline their case for Willis’ removal.

Jordan previously demanded Willis answer questions related to allegations that the Fulton County DA coordinated with the Biden administration in an August 2023 letter sent shortly after Willis secured the indictment against Trump.

In the August letter, Jordan wrote:

“It is noteworthy that just four days before this indictment, you launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted your investigation into President Trump.

“Additionally, the forewoman of the special grand jury you convened to investigate President Trump earlier this year bragged during an unusual media tour about her excitement at the prospect of subpoenaing President Trump and getting to swear him in.”

Willis denied wrongdoing in a Jan. 14 address at Big Bethel AME Church.

Instead, she accused her critics of “playing the race card.”

She continued by falsely claiming she paid the outside prosecutors the same rate.

Wade reportedly earned $250 an hour while working on the case against Trump.

However, John Floyd, a RICO expert, was paid $200 an hour, according to billing records.

Other documents show that Floyd was initially paid $150 an hour, far below what Willis paid her lover Wade.
