It’s worth noting that Fani Willis hired Wade to handle Trump’s case. Nevertheless, many argued that Wade didn’t qualify for his position. Trump’s co-defendant even mentioned Wade in a lawsuit. He claimed that Wade’s experience didn’t meet Fulton County’s standard.

Wade Left His Family For Willis

The controversy mainly questions the couple’s morals and professionalism. It also accuses them of exploitation. For example, Wade had a wife during the time he knew Willis. Surprisingly, he spontaneously divorced her on November 2, 2021. What for?

Many speculate that he left his wife and two kids to be with Willis. Why? Because he filed for divorce a day after Willis appointed him to Trump’s case. Therefore, the man was cheating on his family, and Willis knew about it.

Trump’s situation is a high-profile one. It Was Willis’s job to find the best prosecutor to conclude the case. However, she chose Wade. Many have argued that Nathan Wade isn’t qualified as he lacks experience. Therefore, it’s possible he got the job merely for his affair with Willis.

Mark Levin Was Furious About The Discovery

As previously mentioned, Willis confessed to her relationship with Nathan Wade. This revelation angered Levin and let everyone know exactly how he felt on social media. Basically, he accused her of being a “crooked and hypocritical” Democrat.

Others Defend Willis

While this perspective may be correct, it has one flaw. Many question Wade’s qualifications. These political experts claim that Wade lacks the experience to meet the Fulton County standard. Therefore, he may not be eligible to handle Trump’s high-profile case.

Was Hiring Nathan Wade An Illegal Move?
