The blowback is beginning for Fani Willis after she was caught hiring her boyfriend as a special prosecutor.
This improper relationship could sink her criminal case against Donald Trump.
And Fani Willis was speechless after she was hit with a nasty surprise she never saw coming.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is accused of multiple legal and ethical violations over her alleged relationship with Nathan Wade.
She hired Wade to serve as a special prosecutor in the criminal case against former President Donald Trump despite the fact he never prosecuted a felony and paid him an above-market rate for his work.
Wade is accused of using the taxpayer money that Willis paid him to take the pair on a slew of vacations.
Georgia’s State Legislature is taking action to bring oversight to Willis and other rogue prosecutors in the state.
Georgia lawmakers move on Willis
The Georgia House passed a bill that would create a commission with the ability to investigate and remove prosecutors from cases.
A similar bill was signed into law last year by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, but the state Supreme Court didn’t sign off on the rules governing the commission’s conduct.
The new bill removes state Supreme Court oversight from the commission.
“This commission will now be able to begin their real work, which is bringing accountability to those rogue prosecuting attorneys who abuse their office,” Republican State Rep. Joseph Gullett, the bill’s sponsor, told the Associated Press.
Democrats in the Georgia House were enraged that Willis could potentially face accountability because of the bill.
The bill will now head to the Republican-controlled Georgia State Senate for consideration.
Former federal prosecutor John Malcolm told Fox News Digital that Willis is facing serious allegations of misconduct.
“They ought to be looked into, and it has certainly imperiled this prosecution and given a black mark, not only to Fulton County but potentially to the entire state, so I can understand why the Georgia legislature is up in arms about this,” Malcolm said.
He added that “this is a difficult moment” for the embattled Fulton County DA, who he said could be forced to rescue herself from the Trump case because of the growing scandal.
Willis hasn’t denied the allegations of an improper relationship, instead lashing out at critics as being racist.
The prosecutor oversight bill working its way through the Georgia legislature could be the end of the road for her criminal case against Trump.
