Jim Jordan issues a subpoena to District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County.

Trump Co-Defendant Accuses DA of Affair

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has issued a subpoena to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, requesting documents related to an investigation into allegations that she misused federal funds. The subpoena, which requires Willis to provide the documents by February 23, comes after three prior requests from the committee were not complied with.

The investigation into Willis’ use of federal funds stems from her office’s prosecution of former President Donald Trump for his alleged involvement in attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Willis has previously accused Jordan of obstructing the prosecution of Trump and called his requests for information an “unjustified and illegal intrusion” into the ongoing criminal case. However, the recent subpoena comes after claims that Willis’ office retaliated against an employee who raised concerns about the potential misuse of federal grants.

According to a report from the Washington Free Beacon, the whistleblower warned Willis about the potential misuse of funds, but was subsequently terminated. The report also alleged that the grant, which was intended for youth gang prevention, was being used for unrelated expenses such as laptops, travel, and “swag.”

In his letter to Willis, Jordan expressed concerns about the supervision of federal grant funding and the potential concealment of unlawful use of funds. However, Willis has defended her office’s grant programs and use of money from the Justice Department, stating that the allegations are false and have been dismissed by the courts.

This latest development in the ongoing investigation highlights the contentious relationship between Jordan and Willis, as well as the potential implications for legislative reforms that the Judiciary Committee is exploring. As the situation continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how it will impact the prosecution of Trump and the use of federal funds in Fulton County.
