( – On Monday, former Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) noted in an op-ed in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the relationship between Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) and special prosecutor Nathan Wade had completely reduced any possibility that she might have fairly prosecuted former President Donald Trump in the election interference case. 

Loeffler in her statement argued that the conflict of interest had completely reduced any notion of pair prosecution and had deemed the entire “scheme” as being “disqualifying.” She further pointed out that last week, Georgia Judge Scott McAfee had suggested that the romantic relationship could potentially result in the district attorney being disqualified from the case, which Loeffler argued was going to be a “step” in the correct direction. 

She proceeded to note that anything other than the case being completely dismissed is just going to be a bandage over an open wound in a justice system that had due process that was already damaged. 

She continued by pointing out that currently, many prosecutors including Willis and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had opted to take partisan action rather than dealing with impartial justice. 

Bragg brought forward charges against Bragg in a separate hush-money case that had been focused on Trump’s hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels. The payment had been made on his behalf by his then-fixer Michael Cohen. The payment was meant to keep Daniels quiet over revealing information about an alleged affair she had with Trump. 

Willis in her case is accused of having hired her romantic partner as a prosecutor in the case, which has led to his financially benefiting from the case.
