Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor who is spearheading the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald J. Trump was seen publicly for the first time since allegations made of an affair with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
The case against the Republican frontrunner was thrown into potential disarray this week when a court filing by one of the co-defendants in the racketeering trial alleged that Willis had improperly “engaged in a personal, romantic relationship” with Wade whom she had brought in to prosecute Trump.
The New York Post caught up with the prosecutor outside of his law office in Atlanta where he arrived “in a silver Audi A8 L 4.2 Quattro — valued new at more than $100,000 — around 1.45 p.m. on Thursday,” and Wade was sporting what appeared to be a gun.

“Wade, who appeared to be openly carrying a handgun, refused to respond — but also didn’t issue a denial — when asked by The Post if he had spent any of the $654,000 he had earned working on the Trump case to take Willis on lavish trips,” the outlet reported, Wade snapped “No,” when asked if he’d respond to questions.
When he later emerged from the building, he was toting the firearm in his hand. Georgia is an open carry state and the outlet “does not suggest Wade was involved in any wrongdoing.”
“Willis and Wade have engaged in a personal relationship both before and after Willis appointed Wade as the special prosecutor in the instant case,” stated the motion filed by former Trump staffer Michael Roman. “Willis and Wade were romantically involved prior to Willis awarding a contract for legal services with Wade. It is not entirely clear when the relationship began, but it began while Wade was married.”
Despite his reported lack of experience with felony trials, the private attorney was brought in by Willis to handle the high-profile trial which will draw national attention.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, “The Fulton County District Attorney’s office has paid Wade’s law offices nearly $654,000 since January 2022, according to county records, making it likely that he is the highest paid prosecutor in the state.
“Has everybody seen the revelation, just announced in the Great State of Georgia, that the Fulton County D.A., Fani Willis, who Criminally Indicted your Favorite President, ME(!), & many other Innocent People/Patriots, HIRED & EXORBITANTLY PAID a ‘Romantic Partner’ to Prosecute the 45th President of the United States of America, & then ‘financially benefitted from their relationship.’ In other words, he was paid a ‘fortune,’ & then took ‘Beautiful’ Fani on expensive, but all paid for by Georgia, vacations to faraway lands!” Trump wrote on Truth Social after the news broke of the alleged fling between Willis and Wade.
