Fmr. Georgia gov makes WILD accusation during Fani Willis hearing: ‘Too close to the Jews’

One of disgraced Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ witnesses tried to distract from her corruption Friday by making wild allegations.

Former Georgia Gov. Roy Barnes, a Democrat who hasn’t been governor for over two decades, testified that he’d declined a job with Willis’ office specifically because of an alleged threat he’d received.

Barnes admitted this to prosecutor Adam Abbate.


“I want to direct your attention back to 2021. Were you approached by the district attorney of Fulton County, Fani Willis, about being a special prosecutor?” Abbate asked him.

“I was,” Barnes replied. “I don’t recall the exact date, but I know it was sometime in 2021, and she asked me to come down, and I met with her and Nathan Wade, and there were several others in the meeting.”

“She said they were beginning this investigation [into former President Donald Trump], and she asked me if I’d be interested in being special prosecutor,” he added.

He turned down the offer for various reasons, one of them being a threat he’d been alerted to by the FBI.

“I replied that I had mouths to feed at a law office and that I could not, I would not do that. And also, I just had a bad — well, let’s say bad because it happens from time to time — but I just had the FBI report a fellow, a militia trainer, to me that said they were concerned that he was making threats against me,” Barnes said.

“I thought it was because of the flag. But I asked him and he said no, it was because I was ‘too close to the Jews.’ And I told D.A. Willis I didn’t — I have lived with bodyguards for four years, and I didn’t like it. And I wasn’t going to live with bodyguards for the rest of my life,” he added.

The response to his remarks has been divided. Conservatives say that his refusal to take the case proves the case against Trump is a sham:

Leftists meanwhile believe the threats against Barnes are somehow good for Willis’ reputation.

“Everyone thought that this hearing would be a detriment to Fani Willis’s reputation, but with all the testimony about the threats to her safety, including Roy Barnes not taking take the SP job for the same reason, it’s really having the opposite effect to increase her reputation,” CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Evan Gold tweeted.

Other leftists meanwhile have pointed to something else Barnes said, which was that Willis is a “very qualified young woman.”

Of course, this description of her is contradicted by her glaring corruption. The corruption involves her hiring Nathan Wade, with whom she’d had a romantic relationship and reportedly giving him taxpayer money.

“She was having an affair, she appointed him special prosecutor, she ginned up this whacko RICO racketeering case that has no merit. She paid him something around $700,000 bucks. They were romantically involved, went on trips together — all paid for by the public taxpayer trough,” Fox Business Network’s Larry Kudlow explained in a column published Thursday.

“So: they must both resign immediately and they are both disqualified from the case. The case should be dismissed. What’s more, the rest of the Fulton County DA’s office should suffer a major resignation wave, because they knew about it and did not raise their hand to publicly object,” he added.

That is indeed the preferred outcome, though Willis is fighting tooth and nail to remain on the case and keep prosecuting Trump.

Trump, for his part, believes it’s now game over for her.

“They’re talking about the Georgia ‘Fani Scandal’ all over the World. In fact, by far, it is trending #1. I can’t believe the Georgia State Judiciary, or the Governor, can be happy about this humiliating embarrassment,”  he wrote on Truth Social early Friday morning.

He further claimed that “legal pundits, experts, and scholars” all agree that the case against him “should be immediately terminated and permanently erased from everyone’s memory.”
