Trump Triumphs as MSNBC Legal Analyst Declares Game Over for Fulton County DA Fani Willis

MSNBC legal analyst Caroline Polisi predicted that the election fraud trial against former President Donald Trump is as good as over following testimony that contradicted a sworn statement made by special prosecutor Nathan Wade regarding his romantic relationship with Fani Willis. Robin Yeartie, a college friend of Willis, testified that Willis and Wade began their personal relationship in 2019, years before they claimed it started and before Wade was hired in the Georgia election interference case. Despite acknowledging a “personal relationship,” Willis and Wade insisted that it did not result in any financial benefit to the district attorney. Yeartie, however, testified that there was “no doubt” that the relationship was romantic before Wade was hired.

MSNBC’s Polisi described the revelation as “epic” and “monumental,” and predicted that if they had a romantic relationship prior to what they represented to the court, it would lead to Willis being disqualified. Polisi stated that Willis’ credibility is completely shot, effectively killing the case against Trump. Former President Trump celebrated this news on social media, calling the case a “fake” perpetuated by the Biden White House.

During his testimony, Wade claimed that his relationship with Willis did not result in any financial benefit to the district attorney, despite having been paid nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022. Wade said he was paid in cash, with only one receipt to show for it, a claim that some found unlikely. He also testified that he did not recall traveling with Willis in 2021 when he was hired.

The case against Trump and 14 other co-defendants could be significantly delayed or affected if it is decided to disqualify Willis and her office. Fulton Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said earlier in the week that Willis could be disqualified depending on the evidence presented from both sides. As of now, Willis’ credibility is in question, casting doubt on the case against Trump and his co-defendants.
