District Attorney Fani Willis Declines Rep. Jim Jordan’s Records Request

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis declined congressman Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) request to turn over the records he sought from a special prosecutor working in her office, with whom she allegedly had an affair.

Willis said in a letter that Jordan’s request to attorney Nathan Wade for records earlier this month violated “principles of separation of powers” and a “respect for the legal protections provided to attorney work.”

Jordan sent a letter to Willis to reportedly inquire about the potential of “politically motivated investigations and the potential misuse of federal funds.”

“Your letter is simply a restatement of demands that you have made in past correspondence for access to evidence in a pending Georgia criminal prosecution,” Willis wrote in Friday’s letter.

“As I said previously, your requests implicate significant, well-recognized confidentiality interests related to an ongoing criminal matter. Your requests violate principles of separation of powers and federalism, as well as respect for the legal protections provided to attorney work product in ongoing litigation.”

Jordan allegedly asked in his letter for “all invoices, including credit card statements and individualized reimbursement requests, submitted by you or your law partners to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office relating to its investigation of President Trump,” and “all contracts and financial arrangements between you and the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office relating to its investigation of President Trump.”
