Jonathan Turley: Judge Has ‘Seen Enough’ to ‘Disqualify’ Fani Willis & Nathan Wade from Trump Case

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley has said he believes the judge overseeing allegations against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade has now “seen enough” to remove them from their case against President Donald Trump.

Turley, a George Washington University law professor, appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and detailed the “astonishing” facts he found within Willis and Wade’s case.

In particular, Turley highlighted last week’s testimony from Willis and Wade during their evidentiary hearing.

The duo are facing allegations the DA financially benefited from her romantic relationship with Wade while the two worked together on an election fraud case against former president Donald Trump.

Fox host Shannon Bream questioned Turley on his thoughts regarding the conflicting statements made by the two and if he believes the judge has “seen enough” to disqualify her from the case.

Turley detailed he believes the judge has “heard enough” based on the statements given.

He noted the judge may ask the two to “step aside” due to the “tough position” he is in.

Turley continued to question, however, if the judge would refer both Willis and Wade to the bar over their “allegation of false statement being filed.”

He noted that it could be an option the judge may take in addition to requesting a removal.

“Well, one thing is clear is that no one will ever say election law is boring again,” Turley stated.

“But the astonishing thing about this is that you have two prosecutors who stand accused of filing false statements in court.

“Mr. Wade is accused of answering interrogatories falsely and Willis is accused of making false statements in her own filings.

“That’s what they’re prosecuting defendants in the case for.”

“So, building on what Tom said, at some point you have to recognize that your personal interests have to give way to interests of the case and the office, they haven’t done that.

“Has the judge heard enough? Yes, but he’s still in a tough position.

“Disqualification is a heavy lift.

“The issue of the appearance of impropriety may give him a basis for saying, ‘You need to step aside.’”

“My question is, will he refer these two to the bar?

“They are allegations of false statements being filed, their testimony did not help in that respect,” Turley stated.

“And so, will this judge say, ‘Look, I’m going to suggest that one or both of you remove yourselves,’ or maybe even order it, but ‘I’m also going to ask the bar to look into these allegations’?”

WATCH:

Reports of an improper relationship between Willis and Wade first surfaced in early January after a court motion was filed by representatives of former Trump campaign official Michael Roman.

Roman is a co-defendant who was named in Willis’s indictment.

Since the released filing, Willis has confirmed her relationship with Wade.

Willis appointed Wade to be a special prosecutor in her case against Trump, despite allegedly starting their affair before she was elected to the DA’s office.

Roman’s motion claimed Willis had signed off on funds to pay for romantic vacations for the two.

However, Willis has denied receiving any financial benefits from the relationship.
