Fulton County DA argues cell phone data ‘does not prove’ Willis and Wade lied about relationship

Representatives for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis argued that the explosive data collected from prosecutor Nathan Wade’s cellphone “do not prove anything relevant” and should be removed from evidence.

As BizPac Review reported, former President Trump hired an investigator to map out cellphone calls and text messages between Wade and Willis. What the investigator discovered indicates that Willis lied about when her relationship with Wade began.

Wade, the data suggests, visited Willis’s Hapeville neighborhood at least 35 times before she hired him to head up Fulton County’s election interference prosecution.

“The records do nothing more than demonstrate that Special Prosecutor Wade’s telephone was located somewhere within a densely populated multiple-mile radius where various residences, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and other businesses are located,” the prosecution countered, according to the Washington Examiner. “The records do not prove, in any way, the content of the communications between Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis; they do not prove that Special Prosecutor Wade was ever at any particular location or address; they do not prove that Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis were ever in the same place during any of the times listed.”

According to AJC Politics, the data “seems to contradict Wade’s testimony last week in which he said he had visited Willis at her condo in Hapeville no more than 10 times before he was hired in November 2021.”

It also indicates “that in the months before Willis and Wade said their relationship became romantic early in 2022, Wade’s phone twice arrived in the area late at night and left early the next morning.”

“The timeline of the Willis-Wade relationship is important for two reasons,” AJC explained. “If they were a couple before she hired him it raises the prospect that she may have violated at least the spirit of anti-nepotism rules, though Fulton’s policy specifically focuses on family members.”

“More importantly,” the outlet continued, “both Willis and Wade have testified under oath that the relationship began in 2022. If defense attorneys can prove that they lied under oath it could constitute perjury.”

On X, few are buying the prosecution’s dismissal of the cellphone data.

Not relevant?

“The hell it’s not,” one user stated.

“She can try and deflect,” said another of Willis, “but unless the judge is as corrupt as her, this should be over and she should be removed from the case, disbarred, and prosecuted for perjury.”

According to one user, “The judge has no alternative but to charge her and her lover with perjury!”
