Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis on Wednesday sought to quash subpoenas that would force her and members of her staff to testify as part of a hearing to find out whether she engaged in misconduct and should be barred from prosecuting former President Donald Trump‘s election interference case.
Willis wrote in a nine-page motion that “each of these subpoenas appear transparently to be an attempt to conduct discovery in a (rather belated) effort to support reckless accusations made in prior court filings,” adding that they should be “quashed.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump reiterated his calls for Willis to be barred from prosecuting the sweeping racketeering case levied against him and 18 other defendants. Trump’s co-defendant and former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark became the sixth defendant to file a motion seeking to disqualify Willis, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The flow of calls for Willis to recuse from the case is due in part to co-defendant Mike Roman’s mid-January motion, in which he accused Willis of engaging in a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, the attorney she appointed to serve as special prosecutor to oversee the case.
Roman also alleged Wade was not qualified for the job and that by paying for vacation expenses, uncovered in credit card statements from the special prosecutor’s divorce case, he and Willis benefited financially from the case.
