Georgia Special Prosecutor Asked For Protective Order In Divorce Case

In Fulton County, a complex legal drama has been unfolding involving special prosecutor Nathan Wade, District Attorney Fani Willis, and allegations of an improper relationship. This situation casts a shadow over a significant election interference case involving former President Trump.

Wade, a special prosecutor, recently entangled in a contentious divorce, is the subject of concerns about the integrity of a high-profile case he is leading.

Wade, known for his involvement in the election interference case against former President Trump and 18 others, recently concluded the process of obtaining a divorce from Joycelyn Wade, his wife of 26 years. Recently, a Cobb County Superior Court judge unsealed filings in this divorce, revealing surprising allegations. Joycelyn Wade's attorneys have sought to depose District Attorney Fani Willis, alleging an affair between Willis and Nathan Wade.

Details Emerge from Unsealed Divorce Filings

The unsealed documents included revealing financial information. Bank statements showed Nathan Wade's purchases of plane tickets for himself and Willis, payments for a cruise, and luxury hotel stays. However, these documents did not provide direct evidence of an affair. Nathan Wade's attorneys have requested a protective order citing the sensitivity of this financial information.

"A protective order is needed due to the sensitive nature of the parties' financial information and documents," stated Nathan Wade's attorneys. Despite these claims, Joycelyn Wade's legal team argued that the bank statements suggest a romantic relationship between Willis and Nathan Wade.

Further complicating matters, Nathan Wade was questioned about drug and alcohol use during the proceedings. This detail adds another layer to the already complex case. Meanwhile, District Attorney Willis has neither confirmed nor denied a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade.

Accusations of Impropriety and Financial Misconduct

The allegations involving Wade and Willis have extended beyond the personal to the professional realm. Michael Roman’s lawyer, Ashleigh Merchant, accused Willis and Nathan Wade of an improper relationship and mishandling public money. This accusation comes amidst revelations that county records show Nathan Wade received nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022, authorized by Willis.

Joycelyn Wade's attorneys argued that Willis' deposition would be crucial in determining if Nathan Wade used their client's money on Willis.

Ms. Willis was an intended travel partner for at least some of these trips as indicated by flights he purchased for her to accompany him. There appears to be no reasonable explanation for their travels apart from a romantic relationship.

In response, Willis' attorney, Cinque Axam, claimed that Joycelyn Wade is using the divorce to embarrass Willis and has accused her of obstructing the ongoing case against Trump.

In a counterargument, Axam asserted that Joycelyn Wade has "conspired with interested parties in the criminal Election Interference Case to use the civil discovery process to annoy, embarrass, and oppress District Attorney Willis." He also accused her of "obstructing and interfering" with Willis' ongoing case against Trump.

Judicial Intervention and Upcoming Hearings

The legal tangle took another turn when a judge put Willis' deposition on hold until hearing more from Nathan Wade. This decision suggests that the court proceeded cautiously amid the sensitive nature of the allegations and the high-profile individuals involved.

Joycelyn Wade's attorneys have denied any intent to "harass" Willis. They stated that the subpoena was "to seek pertinent information from her husband’s paramour regarding her relationship with Plaintiff and the extension to Plaintiff’s financial involvement in the same."

On Wednesday, it was announced that Nathan Wade and Jocelyn Wade reached an agreement in their divorce case, negating the need for further testimony.

The Intersection of Personal and Professional

This case highlights the complex interplay between personal relationships and professional duties. The allegations involving Willis and Wade, if true, could have significant implications for the integrity of the election interference case against Trump.

The community and legal world are closely watching as the story unfolds. The implications of this case reach beyond the personal lives of those involved, touching on issues of public trust and legal integrity.

As the case progresses, more details are expected to emerge, potentially affecting the outcome of the high-profile election interference case. The situation remains fluid, with the upcoming hearing potentially pivotal in determining the future course of both the divorce and election interference cases.
