Nathan Wade Resigns From Case Against Donald Trump

On Friday, special prosecutor Nathan Wade officially resigned from the case against former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants, following Judge Scott McAfee’s indication that either he or Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis must step down due to the appearance of impropriety surrounding their admitted relationship.

Willis, who hired Wade to pursue charges against Trump and his co-defendants under the RICO Act in August 2023, has faced scrutiny since co-defendant Mike Roman brought the issue of their relationship to light.

Although both Willis and Wade insist that their relationship began after Wade’s hiring, Judge McAfee acknowledged that the situation created an appearance of impropriety, despite finding the evidence “legally insufficient to support a finding of an actual conflict of interest.”

In his ruling, Judge McAfee presented two options: either Willis could step aside along with her entire office, or Wade could withdraw from the case. Wade chose the latter, stating, “I am sure that the case, and the team, will be in good hands moving forward and justice will be served.”

Wade’s resignation is a necessary first step to restoring the integrity and impartiality of the legal system.

The next step would be for either Fani Willis to resign or and appeal to be made if possible.

It’s obvious that this judge, who donated to Fani Willis in the last election, could not bring himself to do what was obvious and right.
