Nathan Wade’s divorce attorney, Terrence Bradley, has taken the stand for the second time in the hearing that could lead to Fani Willis’ disqualification from Donald Trump’s election fraud case.
The star witness will be questioned about whether Willis began a relationship with Wade before she hired him to prosecute the former president.
His testimony could have major implications for whether Fulton County’s embattled district attorney is excluded from the case.
Nathan Wade’s divorce attorney, Terrence Bradly, has taken the stand for the second time in the hearing that could also lead to Fani Willis’ disqualification from Donald Trump’s election fraud case.
This decision came after a meeting between Judge Scott McAfee and Bradley, where it was revealed that certain communications between Wade and Bradley do not fall under the protection of attorney-client privilege.
Judge McAfee informed attorneys involved in the case via email about the exclusion of some communications from attorney-client privilege.
McAfee’s decision came after a closed-door meeting between the judge and Bradley on Monday that lasted more than an hour.
Fulton County Prosecutor Fani Willis and Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade testified about their romantic relationship in court last week.
Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee revealed that some communications between Wade and Bradley are not confidential or protected by attorney-client privilege.
Witness and attorney Terrence Bradley may have to take the stand once again
Michael Roman and other co-defendants in the Trump case are seeking to have District Attorney Fanni Willis, 53, disqualified for what they call an “inappropriate” relationship.
They cite a financial benefit from a “personal romantic relationship” with special prosecutor Wade, whom he hired for the case.
Although Willis and Wade have acknowledged their relationship, they have argued that it “does not amount to a disqualifying conflict of interest” and that the relationship “has never involved direct or indirect financial benefit to District Attorney Willis.”
