Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade appeared to visit Fulton County DA Fani Willis in Georgia at least 36 times before she hired him, cellphone records show.

Donald Trump’s lawyers filed records with the court on Friday showing that Wade made the three dozen visits to the Hapeville neighborhood where his lover Willis lived before she hired him in November 2021 to lead the election interference prosecution.

The data comes from Wade’s cell phone and tower transmissions that tracked his location and appears to contradict Wade’s testimony that he visited her apartment fewer than ten times and that their romance began in 2022 – after she brought him in.

And despite both Wade and Willis testifying that they never spent the night together at her apartment, cell phone records show he spent the night at least twice.

This raises new questions about the timeline of their romance and whether both the district attorney and the special counsel lied under oath about the relationship.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis made a dramatic appearance in court, where she spoke about her “physical” relationship with Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade and testified about providing him with cash refunds when they traveled together. Her attorney decided not to call her back for additional testimony

Wade was asked by a lawyer for Donald Trump about the source of the cash he said Willis gave him, and whether Willis simply took cash from her wallet.

Willis made a surprise appearance on the stand on Thursday after her former lover Wade was questioned about the ‘romantic’ relationship. He testified that it started in 2022, shortly after she appointed him as special prosecutor.

One disappointed viewer was Trump himself, who was briefly expected to attend court on Thursday but instead chose to travel to New York for an unrelated appearance in the Stormy Daniels criminal case.

“Does anyone really believe that Fani Willis paid cash to her ‘lover’ when they took expensive ‘trips’ together? Real? Where did she get the CASH? Pretty weak interrogation yesterday!!! I guess they don’t want to offend her,” he posted on his Truth Social site.

“There is no way she can explain away this corruption!!!”

Prosecutors announced they would not bring Willis back for friendlier questioning, suggesting she accomplished some of what she needed to do Thursday, even as she fended off questions about her finances and romantic life.

It also prevents a roomful of lawyers from getting her again on the witness stand, where they would try to poke holes in stories about her romance, office practices, credit card statements and cash refunds.

The stakes are high for Willis, Wade – and Trump – with the prospect that the prosecution could be taken away from Fulton County if there is an improper relationship or conflict of interest that could impact the prosecution. That, in turn, could delay Trump’s trial as he attempts to return to the White House.

There was a series of fireworks in Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee’s courtroom Thursday. At one point, he called a five-minute recess after Willis’s angry attacks on attorney Ashleigh Merchant, who exposed the affair in a legal filing accusing Willis and Wade of an improper relationship and demanding their disqualification.

“Frankly, your honor, the state has no further questions for Ms. Willis,” Fulton County Special Prosecutor Anna Cross said when she was expected to call Willis.

She angrily denied any conflict or financial benefit from luxury trips she took with Wade. Like Wade, she testified that she paid him back her share in cash, and that they took turns paying some entertainment expenses.

‘I don’t need anyone to pay my bills. The only man who has ever paid my bills in full is my father,” she said at one point.

“I’m not on trial,” she said angrily at one point.

She only hinted at her anger when discussing Merchant’s motion to remove her from the case and whether she had spoken to Wade about it.

‘I don’t know if it was a conversation. As you know, Mr. Wade is a Southern gentleman. Not so much,” she told Merchant, who represents alleged Trump co-conspirator Michael Roman, as she sat on the stand.

‘It is a lie. It’s a lie,” she fumed as she disputed the “offensive” suggestion that she contacted Wade immediately after a 2019 judicial conference where she said she was introduced to him by a fellow judge.

She also dismissed the idea that she had a sexual relationship with him in 2020 or 2021, citing his battle with cancer in 2020.

On Friday, her own lawyer Anna Cross will get a chance to question her, after lawyers for Trump and other alleged co-conspirators in the Georgia election case were given a chance to pressure the head of the investigation into her own romantic life, financial dealings and living conditions . arrangements.
