Judge Makes Ruling Over Witness In Fani Hearing

The ongoing legal drama surrounding Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her relationship with lead prosecutor Nathan Wade took a surprising turn on Tuesday as former divorce lawyer Terrence Bradley’s testimony seemed to “undermine” Willis’ credibility.

If Willis and Wade are disqualified from the election subversion case against former President Donald Trump, it could have major consequences for the trial and potentially unravel the indictment.

According to CNN senior legal analyst Laura Coates, Bradley’s testimony may have dealt a blow to both Willis and Wade’s arguments for remaining on the case. It was previously believed that Bradley would be a key witness in the disqualification case, but his statements on the stand seemed to contradict his previous claims of when the relationship between Willis and Wade began. While he previously stated that he “absolutely” believed the relationship started before Willis hired Wade, he now claims it was all speculation.

Coates also noted that Bradley’s “convenient amnesia” and evasive responses on the stand raised several red flags, and may have ultimately weakened the prosecution’s case. Additionally, attorney and legal analyst Jonathan Turley tweeted that the hearing was “grinding but telling,” and that Bradley’s testimony only added to the doubts surrounding the prosecution’s credibility.

In response to the hearing, political commentator and lawyer Katie Phang took to social media to describe Bradley as a “yenta,” which means a gossip or meddlesome person. However, Phang noted that his testimony did not provide any evidence of personal financial gain for Willis, which is the crucial element needed to successfully disqualify the prosecutors.

Despite these developments, it is still unclear how Judge Scott McAfee will ultimately rule in this case. However, if Willis and Wade are indeed disqualified from the election subversion case, it could have significant ramifications. Not only would it delay the trial until after the November presidential election, but it could also potentially unravel the indictment against Trump and his co-defendants.
