The Democrats have pinned their hopes to take down Donald Trump on DA Fani Willis.
But her case against Trump is already in tatters.
And Willis blew a gasket after one new detail made her sex scandal even more embarrassing.
The establishment believed that the Georgia election case against Donald Trump represented the best chance to take him down once and for all.
The Georgia charges are state crimes, meaning neither Trump nor another Republican President could pardon him, and Georgia law prohibits the Governor from granting pardons.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, the prosecutor bringing the charges, had been built into a folk hero by the Democrat Media Complex.
Willis filed RICO charges against Trump in order to prosecute his lawyers and other associates in an attempt to nail Trump as the head of a criminal conspiracy.
But Willis’s flimsy legal case against Trump has turned into the least of her worries.
It recently came to light that Willis brought on attorney Nathan Wade, with whom she had an ongoing sexual relationship, to serve as a lead prosecutor on the case.
Willis used taxpayer dollars to pay Wade and go on Royal Caribbean cruises.
And the details of Willis’s sex scandal got even worse.
New revelations threaten to cut Willis’ RICO case against Trump off at the knees
It turned out that Willis paid Wade more to work the case than the top RICO expert in the state of Georgia.
The Daily Caller reported that “John Floyd, who wrote a book on federal and state Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statutes and is considered Georgia’s top expert, entered into a contract with the Fulton County District Attorney’s office on March 10, 2021 at an hourly rate of $150 per hour…Nathan Wade, who Willis appointed special prosecutor, was retained at a rate of $250 per hour, according to the contract contained in court documents…”
Willis claimed that all special counsels were paid the same rate, but court documents suggest otherwise.
The court documents only show Floyd’s contract through April 2022, so his pay rate could have been increased, but it does not change the fact that he was paid less, at least initially, despite his wealth of expertise.
Payment to expert undermines Willis’ own fear mongering about RICO threat
Worse yet, Wade did not appear to be qualified for his role as a lead prosecutor, which makes Willis’s actions look even more corrupt.
Prior to being hired by Willis to prosecute the case, Wade had only worked in private practice in family law and handling contract disputes.
He also served as a municipal court judge handling traffic tickets.
Ashleigh Merchant, the attorney for co-defendant Michael Roman, filed in a court document that she was “unable to find any history of Wade ever having prosecuted a single felony trial.”
Atlanta-based criminal defense attorney Philip Holloway told The Daily Caller, “If the allegations about his lack of felony trial experience are true, $250 per hour is unreasonably high…It could be argued that any amount is too high to pay someone with no felony trial experience to come in as lead counsel in the biggest, most complex criminal case in the history of Georgia.”
Willis’s outlandish attempt to ruin Trump might have blown up her own career.
